Howto configure the Linux kernel / sound / drivers


ALSA generic drivers

Generic devicesEdit

    • depends on SND!=n



  • Option: SND_MPU401_UART
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ... tristate
    • select SND_TIMER select SND_RAWMIDI


  • Option: SND_OPL3_LIB
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module)
    • select SND_TIMER
    • select SND_HWDEP


  • Option: SND_OPL4_LIB
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module)
    • select SND_TIMER
    • select SND_HWDEP


  • Option: SND_VX_LIB
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module)
    • select SND_HWDEP
    • select SND_PCM



  • Option: SND_DUMMY
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Dummy (/dev/null) soundcard
    • depends on SND
    • select SND_PCM
    • select SND_GENERIC_DRIVER
      Say Y here to include the dummy driver. This driver does nothing, but emulates various mixer controls and PCM devices.
      You don't need this unless you're testing the hardware support of programs using the ALSA API.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called snd-dummy.


  • Option: SND_VIRMIDI
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Virtual MIDI soundcard
    • depends on SND_SEQUENCER
    • select SND_TIMER
    • select SND_RAWMIDI
    • select SND_GENERIC_DRIVER
      Say Y here to include the virtual MIDI driver. This driver allows to connect applications using raw MIDI devices to sequencer clients.
      If you don't know what MIDI is, say N here.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called snd-virmidi.


  • Option: SND_MTPAV
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) MOTU MidiTimePiece AV multiport MIDI
    • depends on SND
    • select SND_TIMER
    • select SND_RAWMIDI
    • select SND_GENERIC_DRIVER
      To use a MOTU MidiTimePiece AV multiport MIDI adapter connected to the parallel port, say Y here and make sure that the standard parallel port driver isn't used for the port.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called snd-mtpav.


  • Option: SND_SERIAL_U16550
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) UART16550 serial MIDI driver
    • depends on SND
    • select SND_TIMER
    • select SND_RAWMIDI
    • select SND_GENERIC_DRIVER
      To include support for MIDI serial port interfaces, say Y here and read <file:Documentation/sound/alsa/serial-u16550.txt>. This driver works with serial UARTs 16550 and better.
      This driver accesses the serial port hardware directly, so make sure that the standard serial driver isn't used or deactivated with setserial before loading this driver.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called snd-serial-u16550.


  • Option: SND_MPU401
    • Kernel Versions: 2.6.15.6 ...
    • (on/off/module) Generic MPU-401 UART driver
    • depends on SND
    • select SND_MPU401_UART
    • select SND_GENERIC_DRIVER
      Say Y here to include support for MIDI ports compatible with the Roland MPU-401 interface in UART mode.
      To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called snd-mpu401.
