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



NAME
       libao.conf - configuration for libao.


SYNOPSIS
       /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
       below.   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.

       Valid option keys are:

              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, alsa05, nas,  irix,  and
                     sun.  Note that "sun" is used on many BSD systems as well
                     as Solaris.  The "alsa" driver is for the 0.9.x ALSA API,
                     whereas the "alsa05" driver is for the 0.5.x API.


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.
