 Replying to [comment:12 macsociety]:
 > Before moving the OSS files though I went to media preference just to
 see if any new drivers showed and it shows empty, zero, nada.  So, like it
 does not see the OSS files were installed at all.

 That in and of itself doesn't mean much. If OSS doesn't find any supported
 devices (or can't initialize them correctly), then it will simply not show
 up at all, regardless of whether the driver is correctly installed or not.

 > Do the OSS files get installed proper places when I did that Terminal
 install like I did?  They go to the home config kernal driver areas and
 not the /boot/system areas.  I would guess Haiku should see the files in
 the Home config area I take it?

 It does indeed. The idea is, /boot/system strictly contains things that
 were part of the OS install, while home/config contains only things added
 by the user. This is done for two reasons: 1) When doing an upgrade to a
 new OS version, it's guaranteed that home/config will be left alone, while
 /boot/system is considered fair game for the installer to tinker with as
 needed ; and 2) If the user installs a driver that has negative effects
 like locking up the system, all you have to do is enter the boot menu at
 startup and start in safe mode, and any user-installed add-ons will be
 ignored, thus getting you back into a bootable system to fix what you just
 broke.
