Maintained by: naddy@FreeBSD.org search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 02 Nov 2000 18:09:57
License: not specified in port
libao is a cross-platform audio library that allows programs to
output audio using a simple API on a wide variety of platforms.
On FreeBSD, it currently supports:
   * null output
   * raw output
   * AU files
   * WAV files
   * OSS (Open Sound System)
And optionally:
   * ESD (ESounD or Enlightened Sound Daemon)
   * NAS (Network Audio System)
   * PulseAudio

SVNWeb : Main Web Site : Distfiles Availability : PortsMon

NOTE: FreshPorts displays only information on required and default dependencies. Optional dependencies are not covered.

Required To Build:
  1. devel/pkgconf

This port is required by:

for Libraries * - deleted ports are only shown under the This port is required by section. It was harder to do for the Required section. Perhaps later...

To install the port: cd /usr/ports/audio/libao/ && make install clean
To add the package: pkg install audio/libao


Configuration Options
===> The following configuration options are available for libao-1.2.0_1:
     DOCS=on: Build and/or install documentation
     ESOUND=off: EsounD sound server support
     NAS=off: Network Audio System support
     PULSEAUDIO=off: PulseAudio sound server support
===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2010-06-09
    Affects: users of audio/libogg and audio/libao
    Author: naddy@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      There are new versions of libogg (1.2.0) and libao (1.0.0) and the
      shared library versions have been bumped (ogg.6 to ogg.7, ao.3 to ao.4).
    
      All ports that have an identifiable direct dependency on these libraries
      have had their PORTREVISIONs bumped.  However, some ports that pull in
      the libraries indirectly may continue to look for the old versions.  To
      ensure that all are updated, perform this step:
    
      If you use portupgrade:
    
    	portupgrade -rf libogg libao
    
      If you use portmaster:
    
    	portmaster -r libogg libao

Presenting GNOME 2.20.1 and all related works for FreeBSD.  The official
GNOME 2.20 release notes can be found at
http://www.gnome.org/start/2.20/notes/en/ .  Beyond that, this update
includes the new GIMP 2.4 (courtesy of ahze).

The GNOME 2.20 update also includes a huge change in the FreeBSD GNOME
hierarchy.  We are now using the more standard DATADIR of ${PREFIX}/share
rather than ${PREFIX}/share/gnome. The result is that fewer patches and
hacks are needed to port GNOME components to FreeBSD.  This will mean some
user changes may be required, so be sure to read /usr/ports/UPDATING for
more details.

This release and the things we accomplished in it would not have been
possible without mezz's crazy idea to collapse DATADIR, and his persistence
to make it happen successfully.  Ahze and pav also deserve thanks for

Mass-conversion to the USE_AUTOTOOLS New World Order.  The code present
in bsd.autotools.mk essentially makes this a no-op given that all the
old variables set a USE_AUTOTOOLS_COMPAT variable, which is parsed in
exactly the same way as USE_AUTOTOOLS itself.

Moreover, USE_AUTOTOOLS has already been extensively tested by the GNOME
team -- all GNOME 2.12.x ports use it.

Preliminary documentation can be found at:
        http://people.FreeBSD.org/~ade/autotools.txt

which is in the process of being SGMLized before introduction into the
Porters Handbook.

Apply a big libtool patch to allow porters to use the libtool installed by
the libtoolX ports instead of the one included with each port.  Ports that
set USE_LIBTOOL_VER=X will now use the ports version of libtool instead of
the included version.  To restore previous behavior, use the new macro,
USE_INC_LIBTOOL_VER.  Both macros accept the same argument: a libtool version.

For example, to use the ports version of libtool-1.5, add the following to
your Makefile:

USE_LIBTOOL_VER=        15

To use the included version of libtool with extra hacks provided by
libtool-1.5, add the following to your Makefile:

USE_INC_LIBTOOL_VER=    15

With this change, ports that had to add additional libtool hacks to prevent
.la files from being installed or to fix certain threading issues can now
delete those hacks (after appropriate testing, of course).

Whoa there, boy, that's a mighty big commit y'all have there...

Begin autotools sanitization sequence by requiring ports to explicitly
specify which version of {libtool,autoconf,automake} they need, erasing
the concept of a "system default".

For ports-in-waiting:

        USE_LIBTOOL=YES         ->      USE_LIBTOOL_VER=13
        USE_AUTOCONF=YES        ->      USE_AUTOCONF_VER=213
        USE_AUTOMAKE=YES        ->      USE_AUTOMAKE_VER=14

Ports attempting to use the old style system after June 1st 2004 will be
sorely disappointed.
