alsaconf - configuration tool for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
This manual page documents briefly the
This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the
original program does not have a manual page.
Alsaconf is a simple shell script which tries to detect the sound cards
on your system and writes a suitable configuration file for ALSA. It will try
to guess what GNU/Linux distribution you're running, and will act accordingly
to the standards of that distribution, if specific support is available.
Alsaconf will write a modutils snippet which can be then used by modutils
to load the correct parameters for your sound card.
Alsaconf accepts the following options:
- -l, --legacy
Check only for legacy non-isapnp cards
- -m, --modinfo
Read module descriptions instead of reading a card database.
- -s, --sound-wav-file
Use the specified wav file as a test sound
- -u, --uid uid
Set the uid for the ALSA devices (default = 0)
- -g, --gid gid
Set the gid for the ALSA devices (default = 0)
- -d, --devmode mode
Set the device mode for the ALSA devices (default = 0666)
- -r, --strict
Set strict device mode (equiv. with -g 17 -d 0660)
- -L, --log
Logging on /tmp/alsaconf.log
- -p, --probe card-name
Probe a legacy non-isapnp card and print module options
- -h, --help
Displays this help text
In Debian, the default gid of the device files is 29 (corresponding to the
audio group) and the default device mode is 0660.
