Sound driver for the VIA686
|You must be root to start this driver.|
Direct invocation (also causes a new io-audio process to start):
io-audio -d via686 [pci=xx] &
Mounting (requires that io-audio is already running):
mount -Tio-audio [-opci=xx] /lib/dll/deva-ctrl-via686.so &
The deva-ctrl-via686.so shared object is a device driver DLL used by the io-audio manager. It uses the API described in the Audio Developer's Guide.
While deva-ctrl-via686.so is running, you can use applications with sound, and those that control the sound-system (e.g. mixer).
|Graphics drivers run at a higher priority than applications, but they shouldn't run at a higher priority than the audio, or else breaks in the audio occur. You can use the on command to adjust the priorities of the audio and graphics drivers.|
Invoke deva-ctrl-via686.so directly from io-audio:
io-audio -d via686 &
Mount deva-ctrl-via686.so (io-audio must be running):
mount -Tio-audio /lib/dll/deva-ctrl-via686.so &
When an error occurs, deva-ctrl-via686.so sends a description of the error to the system logger (see slogger).
