Hi all, I'm not able to enable sound on my FreeBSD 6.2 box. I'm trying it here in mailing lists after trying in forums<http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/everything-bsd/104558-audio-problem-freebsd-6-2-a.html>
The error message when I click on the speaker icon is: The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don'thave the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured. My motherboard is Asus K8V-VM Ultra with southbridge VT8233A. It uses a realtek ALC660 codec. Initially, 'kldstat' just showed: Id Refs Address Size Name 1 10 0xc0400000 6f6544 kernel 2 1 0xc0af7000 59f20 acpi.ko 3 1 0xc4364000 16000 linux.ko 4 1 0xc43b9000 17000 ng_btsocket.ko 5 1 0xc43d0000 a000 netgraph.ko 6 1 0xc43de000 2000 ng_bluetooth.ko and /dev/sndstat did not exist. I then tried 'kldload snd_via8233' and I got this for 'cat /dev/sndstat': #cat /dev/sndstat FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm) Installed devices: I tried 'kldload snd_driver', the generic case too. But no use. Then I tried loading it as boottime module with 'snd_via8233_load="YES"' in the /boot/loader.conf file. The 'kldstat' now shows, Id Refs Address Size Name 1 12 0xc0400000 6f6544 kernel 2 1 0xc0af7000 6170 snd_via8233.ko 3 2 0xc0afe000 22b88 sound.ko 4 1 0xc0b21000 59f20 acpi.ko 5 1 0xc4368000 16000 linux.ko 6 1 0xc43c6000 17000 ng_btsocket.ko 7 1 0xc43bb000 a000 netgraph.ko 8 1 0xc43e1000 2000 ng_bluetooth.ko But this did not solve the problem. Looking at the error msg which talked about GStream plugins, I did /usr/sysinstall and from ftp installed whatever GStreamer thing I could find. But nothing helped. Could anyone guide me in activating audio in my box. Save all your chat conversations.
