Here is how things went after my original post

First thing I tried was installing ALSA.  It worked but it was not very stable.and I had speed problems with DVD playback:  about half of the time the video played much too fast (can be related to problem mentioned in previous post), and the support site of the DVD playback SW indicated that ALSA was the most probable cause of the problem.

A bit later I remarked that TC 2.x uses OSS version 4.1 while TC 1.x uses OSS 4.0
Using the 1.x OSS TCE did not work as it is kernel version dependent

Final solution:  I recompiled OSS 4.0 for TC 2.x:  works absolutely perfect now.  The issue with DVD playback has completely disappeared.

Thanks.  I am just now heading out the door for Florida for a week.  Thanks to a recently acquired laptop I will be able to process extensions pretty much as usual, I plan on logging in every couple of days.  There is a batch of them in the queue, and I should get to them sometime tomorrow or at least by Tuesday.

FWIW, I booted my old laptop mentioned earlier in this thread with TC 1.43 via boot CD.  Sound works very well using the older 4.0 OSS (but I'd like to keep TC 2.x installed on that machine for other reasons).

I also tried compiling OSS 4.0 under 2.x and failed miserably (OSS compile does not follow the standard configure/make/install pattern it seems -- missing oss-strcpy which googling for doesn't bring up any useful hits).   :(

OT:  Is there a usage guide somewhere or a walk through for "buildtc"?

Yes, osstest works perfectly, thanks.  However, I'm getting complete freeze ups (must hold down power to turn off machine) now when I try to view videos off of youtube with sound.  I think I need to reinstall getFlash but I'm still experimenting to determine exact cause.  But as far as OSS is concerned, sound works well now.

I think I got flash10 and OSS4.0 working by

1.  having neither flash10 or 0SS4.0 installed
2.  installing OSS4.0
3.  installing getFlash10.tce
4.  sudo cp /usr/lib/oss/lib/flashsupport_normal.so /usr/lib/flashsupport.so
5.  running the getflash10 install script from the jwm menu

working = not crashing/completely freezing up the machine when playing a youtube video with sound
