Signal the driver to ready the specified channel
#include <sys/asoundlib.h> int snd_pcm_channel_prepare( snd_pcm_t *handle, int channel );
- The handle for the PCM device, which you must have opened by calling snd_pcm_open() or snd_pcm_open_preferred() .
- The channel; SND_PCM_CHANNEL_CAPTURE or SND_PCM_CHANNEL_PLAYBACK.
Use the -l asound option to qcc to link against this library.
The snd_pcm_channel_prepare() function prepares hardware to operate in a specified transfer direction by calling snd_pcm_capture_prepare() or snd_pcm_playback_prepare() , depending on the value of channel.
This call is responsible for all parts of the hardware's startup sequence that require additional initialization time, allowing the final GO (usually from writes into the buffers) to execute more quickly.
This function may be called in all states except SND_PCM_STATUS_NOTREADY (returns -EBADFD) and SND_PCM_STATUS_RUNNING state (returns -EBUSY). If the operation is successful (zero is returned), the driver state is changed to SND_PCM_STATUS_PREPARED.
Zero on success, or a negative error code.
- Invalid handle.
- Channel is running.
