libao.conf(5)		      libao configuration		 libao.conf(5)

NAME
       libao.conf - configuration for libao.

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/libao.conf

       ~/.libao

DESCRIPTION
       libao.conf and .libao are configuration files for libao,	the audio out-
       put library.  They specify various options to libao, as	described  be-
       low.   libao.conf sets system-wide options, whereas ~/.libao sets user-
       specific	options.  When an option is set	in both	places,	the option  in
       ~/.libao	takes precedence.

FILE FORMAT
       The  file  consists  of	comments and key-value pairs.  Comments	are on
       separate	lines that start with a	# symbol.  The key-value pairs are  of
       the form:
	       key=value
       where key contains no whitespace	and no equal signs.  value will	be all
       of the text after the equal sign	until (but not including)  the	ending
       newline.	  Beware  of  extra  spaces at the end of the line!  They will
       probably	be interpreted as part of the option value.

       The following is	a list of valid	global option keys.  Any  driver  spe-
       cific option may	be used	as well	as those keys.

	      default_driver
		     The short name of the driver libao	should use by default.
		     Valid values include (not	all  are  available  on	 every
		     platform):	oss, esd, arts,	alsa, nas, irix, sun, roar and
		     sndio.  Note that "sun" is	used on	many  BSD  systems  as
		     well as Solaris.

	      debug (Value optional/ignored)
		     Sets  all the drivers as well as AO itself	into debugging
		     output mode.   Unlike  passing  the  debug	 option	 to  a
		     driver,  debug will also print debugging information from
		     driver loading and	testing.

	      quiet (Value optional/ignored)
		     Sets all the drivers as well as  AO  itself  into	silent
		     mode.   Errors  will  return only error codes; neither ao
		     nor the drivers  will  print  any	output	whatsoever  to
		     stderr.

	      verbose (Value optional/ignored)
		     Sets  all	the  drivers as	well as	AO itself into verbose
		     mode.

EXAMPLE
       Here is an example libao.conf that forces the OSS driver	to be used  by
       default:

	   # This is a comment.
	   default_driver=oss

BUGS
       libao.conf is missing a number of potentially useful options.
