That makes sense. Rob has given the answer earlier. You need to load the driver in /boot/loader.conf. > maybe i will try the hda enable in > rc.conf No, /boot/loader.conf. But is your card a hda? It would help a lot if you post the output of "pciconf -lv" relevant for the soundcard and/or show us what exactly you are doing in /usr/local/etc/rc.d with that driver. For example, this is mine: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:31:5: class=0x040100 card=0x016a1028 chip=0x24c58086 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Intel Corporation' device = '82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller' class = multimedia subclass = audio Driver loaded by: # grep ich /boot/loader.conf snd_ich_load="YES" > , but it doesn't seem ac97 on unix is as well supported as the > windows drivers so i need the particular driver i downloaded (i might be > wrong). Ac97 is a codec used on a multitude of soundcards to produce pcm audio AFAIK, so there's no specific driver for it. -- Mel _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
