Re: Setting samplerate on /dev/dsp

um... From what i gather the kernel has no support for either Alsa and
OSS (its a very stripped down kernel, only the basics) , all i am doing
is reading and writing raw data from sound card to harddisk using "dd
if=/dev/dsp of=/dev/hda2". 

(running arecord just told me that i have no soundcards installed (which
makes sense as i dont have alsa installed) )

P.S can any replies to this topic be Cc'd to me as i am not subscribed
to the debian-user lists anymore, thanks....
