    I'm not sure about the REGPARM or NOREGPARM thing, maybe someone else can put an input in for this?

    i believe i downloaded the REGPARM version, and when attempting to install, i got the error:

    Checking for any previously installed sound drivers...
    *** Sound driver is already running - trying to unload it ***
    You appear to have the the kernel level sound driver installed as a loadable
    module. Unload it by executing rmmod sound and try installing OSS/Linux again.
    If this error repeats again you probably have the sound driver being loaded
    automagically by the kerneld daemon. In this case you should log out from the
    X Windows session, then press <ctl><alt><F1> and log in on the Linux console
    as root and then install OSS again.
    Am I allowed to do these changes automatically for you &#40;Y/N&#41; ? y
    Trying to disable the conflicting sound driver
    /etc/modprobe.conf backed up to /etc/modprobe.conf.bak
    Unloading the existing sound driver
    Xlib&#58; connection to "&#58;0.0" refused by server

    OSS/Linux kernel module not available. Cannot continue.
    Please try to install OSS again.
    * Open Sound System installation completed successfully *
    Device configuration has been saved to /usr/lib/oss/etc/devices.cfg
    Execute /usr/lib/oss/bin/soundconf if you want to change configuration.
    Start the driver by using /usr/lib/oss/bin/soundon command
    See /usr/lib/oss/Readme for further instructions
    it tells me to attempt to install OSS again, and that there was a problem, yet RIGHT under it, it tells me that the installation was completed successfully o_O. Attempting to start the driver anyway told me:

    Building the OSS kernel module - please wait...
    Building the OSS/Linux module failed.
    Please see /usr/lib/oss/logs/soundon.log for details.
