I received a patch to support OSS4 (Open Sound System V4) in KMix (KDE 3.5.x). According to http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=166591, (K)Ubuntu 8.04 ships with OSS4.

Using this patch, KMix will decide at compilation time whether to include OSS3 or OSS4 support.

#if SOUND_VERSION >= 0x040000
#define OSS4_MIXER
#undef OSS_MIXER

The full patch (and a patch for the patch) can be found in the bug report (see above). I have commited it also to the 3.5 branch. Any feedback (works, works not, does not compile) is highly appreciated - from any OSS3 and OSS4 users.
