Description of problem:
Following messages occur in /var/log/messages file. Maybe these are just warnings, but since I'm not sure if they have impact on the system I'm reporting this as a bug.
kernel: application realplay.bin uses obsolete OSS audio interface
kernel: application nspluginviewer uses obsolete OSS audio interface
kernel: application wine-preloader uses obsolete OSS audio interface
kernel: application audacity uses obsolete OSS audio interface
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start any of following applications (wine, realplayer, audacity)
2.Look into /var/log/messages file
Actual Results: There is inscription in /var/log/messages file:
"application <appname> uses obsolete OSS audio interface"
Expected Results: nothing
the kernel spews these messages to so that the owners of the programs
get notified they haven't converted to the new ALSA interfaces yet.
the goal for fedora is to move all our own software to the new alsa
interfaces; this is a debug trap to make sure we catch everything
