Description Oleh Hushchenkov 2021-05-19 09:45:53 UTC
virtual_oss is not a runtime dependency for chromium. You need to configure it before using, so it won't help you if it's installed with chromium. And it's useless with ALSA(alsa-lib supports asound.conf) and PulseAudio, both can select audio input/output.

Now it forced to be installed even if won't be used. virtual_oss dependency should be removed or be optional and enabled by default with only SNDIO backend.

I also noticed that java is not need for build anymore. It's great news.

Thank you, Rene.
