Open sound system audio device detection program.
ossdetect [-diuv] [-m<mode>] [-L<path>]
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.
-d Create device file links.
-i Adds the oss_imux driver.
-m<mode> Create nodes with permissions set to octal <mode>.
-g<group> Create nodes with group ownership set to <group>.
-u Adds the oss_userdev driver.
-v Verbose output.
-L<path> Use <path> as root directory for OSS files. Default: Path from /etc/oss.conf, followed by /usr/lib/oss.
