While fixing a dosbox sound issue while playing Doom, I discovered the
trick! In my case I was using libsdl1.2debian-alsa and had to switch over to
OSS. The package deps are linked, that installing one (-all, -alsa, -oss)
will remove the currently installed one for you.
apt-get install libsdl1.2debian-all
That will install -all and prompt to remove your current OSS package,
without removing all linked apps.
Funny thing is, after I switched to OSS, Kdenlive's audio works too!
