Q: What configuration is used, if I specify $MMIXRC, the option -f and
have the file ~/.mmixrc ?
A: The configuration loading uses only one file and searches the file in the
1. option -f
3. $HOME/.mmixrc (alias ~/.mmixrc)
Q: What is a device ?
A: The soundcard itself is a device, the mixer also ... every soundcard
should have a mixer device ... this is the device mmix needs :)
If you have more than one soundcard or some other mixing device
(tv-card, radio card, ...), mmix will show you more than one
Q: What is a resource ?
A: This is just a part of your soundcard (eg: pcm, line in, line out) ...
Q: Has mmix alsa support ?
A: Currently no, you can use alsa drivers that support the oss interface.
