Description

After a thorough discussion regarding mixers on uniaud-dev, it was unanimously decided that LBMix is the best available open-source GUI mixer for OS/2. However it was noted that it requires some improvements to work well with Uniaud.

It would be good to make this the official replacement mixer for the Uniaud project after 1.1.4.

I honestly haven't used it since my T30, due to incompatibilities, but it may very well have been the older Uniaud which was the culprit.

I'll have to review the list archives to bring myself up to speed on some of this.

I've just started looking at this. I just compiled lbmix 0.08 based on the source in the .zip on hobbes.

I now want to look at extending the ioctl90 api that's documented at http://www.joenord.com/os2/ioctl90/index.html based on some of the new mixer controls featured in HDA hardware. I feel this is a better option than trying to 'massage' the newer ALSA controls into the AC97 definitions.

For eg 'Headphone' that exists in some hardware in uniaud, there is no suitable mixer type in the ioctl90 interface without extensions - best fir is 'phone'
