[asterisk-users] How to use console channels ?

To troubleshoot Voice Quality issues and automate testing, I'm planning to
use Asterisk as a softphone alternative (with better scripting
capabilities) on a Linux 4.10-enabled Ubuntu laptop.
This laptop has two audio jacks with a compatible headset.

I'm testing console channel with lines such as:
same = n,Dial(CONSOLE/default)

When I'm answering an incoming call with "console answer" CLI command, I
can read a WARNING message
"console_indicate: Don't know how to display condition 26 on

At the same time, I can't hear anything on my headset.
I must say I'm a total beginner in Linux audio topic.

My questions are:

1. Which is the best way to go between OSS and ALSA ?
2. How can I list audio devices from the command line ? With aplay and
arecord ? If positive, how does aplay/arecord output relate to
input_device/output_device or device from alsa.conf or oss.conf ?
3. Shall I care for " Don't know how to display condition 26" warnings ?

Best regards
