    Solved Get current playing sound streams

    I remember recently having used a command to get a list of all current playing streams, but I'm not able to remember what was that command. It dumps a list of current playing sound streams on channels (with process name, ex. firefox, mplayer). Any hint?

    What would it take to have a drop-in replacement for audio/libcanberra and audio/libcanberra-gtk3 that works on top of oss or audio/sndio, and has no graphical components or graphical dependencies to play audio from audio/freedesktop-sound-theme on desktop programs? For reference: "PulseAudio...

    Using sndio in place of pulseaudio

    Like me, you might be struggling a lot with sound, ever since pulseaudio came up. However, there actually is an alternative that sparked out of the OpenBSD community. It's a light weight and just works. Sadly it isn't what applications use per default, so one is currently forced to use ports...

    Should this be the offical music / sound track to FreeBSD?

    Its Friday, finally, thankfully. Another trillion zeros and ones routed to the great ether. Imagine walking into a server room where all the machines run FreeBSD, there are no other sounds in the room, and the OS emits sounds. Kernel sounds, user process sounds, cron jobs kicking off stuff and...
