[alsa-devel] How can OSS applications support multiple streams?

I've written an ALSA driver that supports only one playback stream, because 
that's what our hardware supports.  I have a customer that has an OSS 
application that tries to open 32 simultaneous playback streams, which obviously 
doesn't work.  What do I (or the customer) need to do to get 32 streams to work? 
  Is this what a sound server is for?  If so, which one should I use?
