NAME

       yiff - Y sound system server

SYNTAX

       yiff [config_file] [options]

DESCRIPTION

       The  YIFF  sound  server  is  a  Y  compliant  sound server providing Y
       compliant client applications with sound support. Uses  either  OSS  or
       ALSA sound drivers and follows OSS compliancy.

CONFIG FILE

       The  location  of  the  config_file  should  be  specified as the first
       argument.  The default value is /etc/yiff/yiffrc.

OPTIONS

       --device <device>
              Specifies  the  digital  signal  processor  (DSP)  device.   The
              default value is /dev/dsp.

       --mixer <device>
              Specifies  the mixer device. The default value is /dev/dsp. Note
              that more than one non-Y  compliant  application  can  open  the
              mixer in accordance with the OSS standard.

       --mixer_rc <file>
              Specifies  alternate  Y  mixer  settings  file.  The  default is
              located in /var/state/yiff/mixer.

       --port <port>
              Specifies the port number to  accept  incoming  connections  on.
              This  value  overrides  the  value  set in the config_file.  The
              default value is 9433.

       --path <path>
              Adds a sound path to the Y server’s list of  sound  paths  (this
              option can be specified multiple times).

       --foreground
              Run  in  foreground,  do  not  fork into background. The default
              behavour is to fork and run in the background.

       --help Prints help and exits.

       --version
              Prints version information and exits.

       Note that host access lists are  modified  after  the  yiff  server  is
       running. Use yhost(1) to add or remove addresses to the Y server’s host
       access list. It’s helpful to include yhost(1) commands along with other
       startup commands in /etc/init.d/yiff (the Y server startup script).

FILES

       /etc/yiff/yiffrc
       /dev/dsp
       /dev/mixer
       /var/state/yiff/mixer

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       HOME   Specifies the user’s home directory.

EXAMPLES

       To   run   the   YIFF   sound   server  using  the  configuration  file
       /usr/etc/yiffrc, type:

       # /usr/sbin/yiff /usr/etc/yiffrc

       It is more common to start  the  YIFF  sound  server  by  invoking  the
       startup script (make sure it is written properly), type:

       # /usr/sbin/starty

       Note  that yiff will automatically fork itself to run in the background
       so adding a & after the command is not needed. If you want yiff to  run
       in the foreground, then type:

       # /usr/sbin/yiff /usr/etc/yiffrc --foreground
