Sound drivers?

as far as I see there are no any sound modules/drivers in piCore. How can we have sound?

True as there are no sound modules included in base.
Those are generally made by the extension maintainer and packaged as needed.
Example OSS and Alsa on Core x86 repository.

OSS doesn't likely have drivers for the embedded chips, so it wouldn't be much use unless you have an usb sound card attached.

So better start from alsa on ARM.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Just check my pi...
bmarkus, Check the real hardware kernel not the emulated hardware (qemu) kernel.
Seems that I did create many sound modules.

Hi, does this mean that we have sound now?

No, as ALSA and/or OSS are missing.
