Chapter 2. Getting Started with ML

The first thing you should do is examine your system with the mlquery(1ml) tool. This tool prints a list of all supported ML devices on the system.

Following is an example mlquery on the system linux1:

% mlquery
                 SYSTEM: linux1
             active UST: (default software UST source)
                         Software DV_MMX Codec [0]
                         OSS audio device [0]

This output indicates that there are two installed devices:

Other options to mlquery allow you to gather more information about the installed devices. See the mlquery(1ml) man page for more information.
