This makes sense, since you haven't compiled in the client-side OSS

You have to make sure that the ALSA OSS emulation drivers are compiled,
installed, and loaded. This has nothing to do with SDL specifically.
In my case, I have no trace of the OSS drivers on my system, only ALSA.
So when I use SDL_AUDIODRIVER=dma, it may be using the OSS *code* in
the SDL driver, but it's still using *ALSA* at some level in the
kernel. So the problem would seem to be with the actual SDL ALSA code,
and not with ALSA itself. But I still haven't managed to track it
