ALSACONF(8)		    System Manager's Manual		   ALSACONF(8)

NAME
       alsaconf	- configuration	tool for the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture

SYNOPSIS
       alsaconf	[options]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page documents briefly the	alsaconf command.  This	manual
       page was	written	for the	Debian distribution because the	original  pro-
       gram 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 sup-
       port 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 pa-
       rameters	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	      option is	obsolete in the	recent ALSA version.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	This option is
	      obsolete in the recent ALSA version.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	      is obsolete in the recent	ALSA version.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  This option  is
	      obsolete in the recent ALSA version.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.
