       libao.conf - configuration for libao.





       libao.conf  and  .libao  are  configuration  files for libao, the audio
       output 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.


       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:
       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
       specific option may be used as well as those keys.

                     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, 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

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


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

           # This is a comment.


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