I'm following the Handbook instructions trying to set up a sound card.
At boot, I get the following messages.

You might want to check for the following (presuming that you're not
actually running -CURRENT):-

1] That there are no IRQ conflicts with this device
2] Make sure that the P 'n P OS option in the BIOS is disabled




#1 This is FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE
#2 I've been looking at the motherboard's manual, and the BIOS setup, and there does not appear to be a way to turn off PNP OS. This is a Tyan Thunder K7X.

I presume that this is the MoBo:

I use Tyan dual boards, but only for Intel. I would have thought that
Tyan would keep the format of their documentation straight regardless of
AMD / Intel arch.

Please have another look through the manual, just in case we're missing
something in our haste:-)

I noted this at the Tyan site:
Expansion Slots
One AGP Pro slot; also supports 4x AGP
One 64-bit 66MHz (3.3-volt) PCI slot
One 64-bit 66MHz (5-volt) PCI slot
Three 32-bit 33MHz (5-Volt) PCI slots
Total of six usable slots

Now I see no mention of an integrated sound card, so I presume that
you've inserted a PCI card. I neglected to ask, but exactly what model sound card is it?
Which slot is the card installed to?

Check the card docs to see if it matches any of the requirements of the
available slots as described here.



I did try clearing the ESCD data but that did not seem to help.

Thanks folks...

Yes. S2468 is the right board. (ponder mode on) I know it's really a server board and maybe it does not support sound (well/at all?) but I though I would try playing with sound for the first time here since having Xfree86 and GNOME on this machine for maintenance, IMO, makes things easier. (I've read multiple comments about the hazards of running X and logging on as root. I'm keeping that in mind.) (ponder mode off)

I got a bulk (OEM) packaged card from an edistributor. I'll have to pull the card out of the machine to get the model number off the card. It appeared to be a real Creative Labs card when I put it in. I put it in the slot furthest from the AGP slot. I'm not sure which way they are numbered but I'm guessing this is slot 6 (counting the AGP slot.)

I looked at the manual, again and there is an option described as "This option allows you to prevent the OS from changing system settings". That didn't help. I even upgraded the BIOS. The symptoms did not change.

As I'm typing this, I'm looking at the manual again and I still don't see anything about turning PNP off. (I'm thinking this may not be an option at all.) However, I just noticed something on page 25 under PCI Configuration labeled Latency Timer. "Defines the PCI response time delay. Certain devices SUCH AS SOUND CARDS (my emphasis) which require the most PCI access time, may benefot from a higher latency time."

I'm not sure what to put in here but I'm not going to mess with it tonight. However, this may be the object of my next attempt.
