I have added proprietary sound cards which are statically compiled in the
kernel. Card 0: Name=X, Card 1: Name=Y.
I want to create virtual devices using these cards, like front,
left,surround,iec958. I see that this is usually done at
Please let me know how this mapping works?
I mean how does aplay -L list these devices by mapping the sound card to
the ones in /usr/share/alsa/cards/...
I tried creating X.conf and Y.conf there with front,left,surroud,iec958, but
aplay -L doesnt seem to recognize them.
Also, I want iec958 card to be one of the cards listed via aplay -L, and
defining this in asound.conf gives error with aplay.
Any help will be appreciated.
