Release date: 
Thursday, 18 January, 2018

License:

Interface:

Uniaudio is the OS/2 and eComStation port of the ALSA project (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture). A wide range of audio adapters is supported.

A bugtracker system available at http://trac.netlabs.org/uniaud/report.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.

Manual installation

Available both as ZIP and WarpIN package:

  • To install the program distributed as ZIP package: download to temporary directory, run minstall.exe and reboot. If you are upgrading, just replace the two .SYS files.

    GCC libraries are needed for old unimix.exe releases and for Multichannel Testing tool for Uniaud. See below for download link(s).

  • the WarpIN package is self-installing.

Arca Noae Shop (18/1/2018) Readme/What's new
Uniaud for OS/2 Introduction ============= Uniaud is a Universal Audio Support Driver for OS/2. Uniaud was a project created by InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH, now hosted by Netlabs. Uniaud is based on the Linux ALSA project. Uniaud supports a broad range of PCI audio cards/chipsets, including AC'97 and HDA audio codecs. AC'97 audio codecs will be found in systems with integrated (onboard) audio, typically built up through 2004. HDA codecs will be found in modern systems with integrated audio, built during or after 2004. Uniaud also supports some older audio hardware.

Binary programs and documentation for the Uniaud Drivers are licensed to and distributed by Arca Noae, LLC. Please note that builds other than the official binary delivered by the Arca Noae web site are not officially supported. Installation ============ The Uniaud distribution comes in a self executing Warpin installer package. Simply execute to install or update. Then simply reboot at the end of the installation. Restarting the desktop will not suffice, as the driver needs to be loaded from CONFIG.SYS. WARNING: If you are using ACPI.PSD make sure it is version 3.23.04 or later or kernel traps may occur when running these drivers.

DEVICE=x:\MMOS2\UNIAUD16.SYS /V /C /M /L - /V - Verbose - /C - Enable CD output - /M - Enable Microphone output - /L - Enable Line-In output Default: /C ((verbose messages; CD output enabled) Removal ======= To temporarily disable Uniaud, simply comment the following two lines in CONFIG.SYS: DEVICE=x:\MMOS2\UNIAUD32.SYS DEVICE=x:\MMOS2\UNIAUD16.SYS To uninstall Uniaud, run the included uninstal.exe. This will completely and safely remove the Uniaud entries from MMPM2.INI and CONFIG.SYS. Uninstalling from the Multimedia GUI tool will not work. Getting Support and Reporting Problems ====================================== Uniaud is provided as-is and is currently not in development.

Description of This Package --------------------------- This package is intended to aid in the debugging of Uniaud. It includes both the release and the debug versions of the Uniaud audio drivers (uniaud16.sys and uniaud32.sys). The production version in the Release directory is compiled without debug output statements and is intended for production use. The debug version in the Debug directory is compiled with debug output statements enabled, and is intended to be used in situations where there is a problem and additional debug information is requested from a developer. The Debug directory also contains MAP and SYM files for use with a debugger. Installation ------------ You must already have Uniaud installed to use this package. To install the debug version, simply copy the contents of the Debug directory to the \MMOS2 directory on your boot disk and reboot. For example: "copy Debug\* d:\mmos2". To install the production version, simply copy the contents of the Release directory to the \MMOS2 directory on your boot disk and reboot. For example: "copy Release\* d:\mmos2". You may wish to backup your existing uniaud16.sys and uniaud32.sys files in the \MMOS2 directory first. How to use the debug version ---------------------------- To use the debug versions, make a backup copy of your Release uniaud32.sys and uniaud16.sys and copy the debug versions in their place. They debug versions output information to the alsahlp$ log and the release versions do not. To gather all the information needed to report a problem, download UniLog.cmd from the netlabs ftp: ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/uniaud/UniLog.zip To create the log file, simply run UniLog.cmd, type a simple 1 line description of the problem, and include the resulting zip file with your problem report. To only see the alsahlp$ information yourself, you can open an OS/2 command prompt and enter: copy alsahlp$ uniaud.log However this log does not contain enough information to debug a problem, so always use the UniLog.cmd program to produce logs to include with a problem report. The Uniaud project site is http://svn.netlabs.org/uniaud. The user mailing list is uniaud-user@netlabs.org, and the developer's mailing list is uniaud-dev@netlabs.org. To subscribe, append "-subscribe" to the portion of the address before the @. The lists are archived on Gmane.org.

Trac log utility (10/3/2011) Readme/What's new
UniLog.cmd Issue Reporting Package for UNIAUD This package is for users of UNIAUD who wish to report a problem. If UNIAUD does not work correctly for you, please open a ticket at http://svn.netlabs.org/uniaud/report If you don't have a login, use guest/netlabs To create the necessary log for tracking the issue, please unzip all files in this package in a temporary directory and run UniLog.cmd. If you already have PCI.EXE installed on your system, you can copy UniLog.cmd to any directory in your PATH. UniLog.cmd creates a log file which you should attach to your Ticket in the Trac system. The most useful logs are generated with the debug build of uniaud16 and uniaud32, also available from Netlabs ftp. For problems related to specific hardware, if possible, test it under Linux. There are a number of bootable livecd's that can be used without installing anything to your hard drive. A problem which also occurs in Linux is a bug in ALSA, not in Uniaud. TIA The UNIAUD developement Team

Multichannel test (3/4/2006) Readme/What's new
Multichannel Testing tool for Uniaud Propose: This tool useful for setting up/testing multichannel environment. It requires UNIAUD audio driver and latest UNIAUD API (uniaud.dll from March 2006 or later). The tool is Presentetion Manager application. Usage: Run MULTTEST.EXE . It will open PM window with an room entire. To test separate channels just click on appropriate speaker. To test Subwoofer click on white screen. If you have multichannel card with number > 0, start the tool with command line parameter -dev<card id>: MULTTEST.EXE -dev1 This will use device number 1 To check if device support 6 channels, use UNIMIX.EXE tool: unimix.exe -pcms and check for PCM PLAY section. If you see something like: PCM dev name: [NVidia CK804] mixer [subdevice #0] PLAY streams: 1 channels: from 2 to 6 rates: from 48000 to 96000 then you lucky sotb! :) Problems: The tool doesnt work (and never will) with MMOS2/DART. The tool works only with 6 channels environment The tool tested only with Nvidia4/Cmedia-MC6/SB Live! If something wrong, run "MULTTEST.EXE > out.log" then send me out.log file Contacts: Vlad Stelmahovsky aka Vladest vladest@netlabs.org Thank you for your cooperation (c) 5th element
