The driver isn't attached to the device, either because the pci id's
don't match or the card isn't using an emu10k* chip. Please type
pciconf -l -v and reply with the portion that matches the card.
Well, I'm still not getting any further. I pulled the SB Live! card out and enabled the on-board sound in the BIOS, to see if doing a kldload snd_driver would recognize *that*. It doesn't.
The on-board sound shows up like this in pciconf -l -v:
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:16:1: class=0x040300 card=0x2a3e103c chip=0x026c10de rev=0xa2 hdr=0x00
       vendor   = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
       class    = multimedia

kldload snd_driver followed by cat /dev/sndstat yields:
   FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
   Installed devices:

just like before. :(
Information I can glean from looking at the SoundBlaster card:
   On the board:
       Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit
       Model: SB0410
   On the chips:
      Creative CA0106-DAT LF (c) Creative Tech '02 C0524 KD692
      Cirrus Logic CS4382-KQZ WAEXAR0452

Everything else on there seems to be simple resistors, caps, and maybe a mosfet or three.

Changing emu10k1.c so that the definition of EMU10K1_PCI_ID matches what pciconf -l -v found gets the module to recognize that there's a card there, and then it pukes on the ac97 stuff (which confuses me since this card claims to be ac97 compliant and the Cirrus chips is there ...) pcm0: <Creative EMU10K1> port 0xcf00-0xcf1f irq 18 at device 10.0 on pci3
  pcm0: AC97 reset timed out.
  pcm0: ac97 codec invalid or not present (id == 0)
  device_attach: pcm0 attach returned 6

Looking through sound/pcm/ac97.c I can see that the reset() function is failing, and the id = line in the ac97_initmixer() function isn't recognizing the chip on the board.

I got a SoundBlaster Live! because it was listed as a known working piece of hardware. Apparently this is a newer version of the board that isn't supported yet. Getting it to work is becoming a PITA beyond what I have the time and willpower to put in right now.

Is there a piece of sound hardware I can just run down to CompUSA and buy, that I can drop in here and get this thing working with *today*?
