SYNOPSIS

alsaconf [options]

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the alsaconf command. 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 module-init-tools (or modutils) snippet which can be then used by module-init-tools (or modutils) to load the correct parameters for your sound card.

OPTIONS

Alsaconf accepts the following options:
-c, --config file
  Specify the module config file. As default, alsaconf probes the available config file automatically.
-d, --devmode mode
  Set the device mode for the ALSA devices (default = 0666). This option is obsolete in the recent ALSA version.
-g, --gid gid
  Set the gid for the ALSA devices (default = 0). This option is obsolete in the recent ALSA version.
-h, --help Displays this help text.
-L, --log file
  Logging on the given file. The log is appended to the file. This option is for debugging purpose only.
-l, --legacy
  Check only for legacy non-isapnp cards.
-m, --modinfo
  Read module descriptions instead of reading a card database.
-P, --listprobe
  List the supported legacy card modules.
-p, --probe card-name
  Probe a legacy non-isapnp card and print module options.
-r, --strict
  Set strict device mode (equiv. with -g 17 -d 0660). This option is obsolete in the recent ALSA version.
-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). This option is obsolete in the recent ALSA version.

DEBIAN SPECIFIC

In Debian, the default gid of the device files is 29 (corresponding to the audio group) and the default device mode is 0660.
