soundmodem(8) Soundcard modem driver


soundmodem [ configfile ] [ -sSRM ] [-v verbosity level] [-c configuration name]


soundmodem is a user mode driver for packet radio using a standard soundcard supported by OSS/Free. It integrates tightly with the kernel MKISS driver (enable CONFIG_MKISS). soundmodem is controlled by a configuration file. The default filename is /etc/ax25/soundmodem.conf. Any other name may be specified on the command line.


soundmodem accepts the following options:

--help Display an overview of the available command line parameters and exit.
-v level
Set the verbosity level. 0 only displays fatal errors.
-c configname
Use the named configuration. If absent the first is taken.
Log messages to syslog instead of standard out.
Disable the use of SIMD instructions (aka MMX, VIS, etc).
Run with realtime scheduling (SCHED_RR). Use with caution.
Lock memory down in RAM; disables swapping soundmodem out.
