NAME

aoss - Wrapper script to facilitate use of the ALSA OSS compatibilitylibrary. 

SYNOPSYS

aoss osscommand [arguments]

 

DESCRIPTION

aoss is a simple wrapper script which facilitates the use of theALSA OSS compatibility library. It just sets the appropriate LD_PRELOADpath and then runs the command.

This is useful in cases where routing settings (which can be made inyour .asoundrc file) need to be applied to commands that use the OSSAPI.

Examples of asoundrc configuration:

pcm.dsp0 {        type plug
        slave.pcm "hw:0,0"
}

or

pcm.dsp0 {        type plug
        slave.pcm "dmix"
}

In the above configuration examples, the pcm.dsp0 definition is used to wrap calls do /dev/dsp0. You can also wrap usage of /dev/dsp1, /dev/dsp2, etc. by defining pcm.dsp1, pcm.dsp2, etc..

Note on mmap: aoss mmap support might be buggy. Your results may vary when trying to use an application that uses mmap'ing to access the OSS device files.

 

Arguments

osscommand
A command that uses the OSS API
arguments
The appropriate arguments and options for the OSS command.
