I know pulseaudio from my Linux installation. For ALSA specifically, maybe https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture has some information.

That is handy.


It was getting irritating wading through the sea of PulseAudio posts.  This section is potentially useful:





Select the default PCM via environment variable

Probably it is enough to set ALSA_CARD to the name of the device. First, get the names with aplay -l, then set ALSA_CARD to the name which comes after the colon and before the bracket; e.g. if you have

card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]

then set ALSA_CARD=HDMI.



After calling alsacfg -init, I can get output from amixer or aplay -L, grep it for "speaker", "analog", etc...  then set the variable with an export notation.


However, they also have a very appealing looking "Hyper minimal" gui program...  It just has python and GTK+ as dependencies (which as far as I can tell, MAME shares anyway).  I could pull the source and compile it as an installable .deb, and install it with dpkg.


I would need a way to invoke it from the root console though...
