Using /dev/audio and /dev/dsp

Using /dev/audio and /dev/dsp

Post by Tobin Frick » Tue, 16 Nov 1999 04:00:00

Hello.. I'd like to write a program which must be able to capture and
playback audio.   I am looking for information on how to use /dev/audio,
/dev/dsp, etc to do this.  If anyone could point me to a good source of
information for getting started with audio under linux, I would appreciate



1. /dev/dsp, /dev/audio, /dev/midi., /dev/sndsta

After I compiled all the necessary components
for sound support for my sound card, I have happy
to say linux detects my sound card...but there is
one problem I am as of yet unable to use the card..
since the necessary devices in /dev were never made...

In newere kernel releases the file
/usr/src/linux/drivers/sound/Readme.linux which contained a
script at the end of file which created the dev files
is no longer present.  Could someone tell me where this
file is now located?  Or where I can find a script to
create the dev files?
