NAME

ossdetect - Open Sound System audio device detection program.

SYNOPSIS

ossdetect [-diuv] [-m<mode>] [-L<path>]

DESCRIPTION

The ossdetect application performs automatic detection of soundcards. The application looks at the $OSSETCDIR/device.list and performs automatic detection. It will create a file with the list of the configured drivers in $OSSETCDIR/installed_drivers. OSSETCDIR is decided by reading /etc/oss.conf, and defaults to /etc/oss4.
The Input Multiplexer driver (IMUX) is not configured by default and can be added to the OSS configuration using the -i option.

OPTIONS

-g<group>

-u

-v
