TinyALSA is a small library to interface with ALSA in the Linux kernel.
The aims are:
- Provide a basic pcm and mixer API.
- If it's not absolutely needed, don't add it to the API.
- Avoid supporting complex and unnecessary operations, that could be dealt with at a higher level.
- Provide comprehensive documentation.
TinyALSA uses Makefile as the primary build system.
To build and install with Make, run the commands:
make sudo make install sudo ldconfig
TinyALSA is now available as a set of the following debian packages from launchpad:
|tinyalsa||Contains tinyplay, tinycap, tinymix and tinypcminfo|
|libtinyalsa||Contains the shared library|
|libtinyalsa-dev||Contains the static library and header files|
To install these packages, run the commands:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:taylorcholberton/tinyalsa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install tinyalsa sudo apt-get install libtinyalsa-dev
Once installed, the man pages are available via:
man tinyplay man tinycap man tinymix man tinypcminfo man libtinyalsa-pcm man libtinyalsa-mixer
