       yiff - Y sound system server


       yiff [config_file] [options]


       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.


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


       --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).

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

       --help Prints help and exits.

              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).




       HOME   Specifies the user’s home directory.


       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
