I'm trying to get a sound from my laptop. I can see the actual card in dmesg, but no audio framework driver (no pcm).
hardware: i386 armada 1700 laptop sound: ESS 1869 16-bit Plug and Play (PnP) OS: FBSD 6.3-prerelease I checked that the sound is working using Compaq PC diagnostics floppy. I added device sound device snd_sbc device snd_sb16 to the kernel configuration file and hint.pcm.0.at="isa" hint.pcm.0.port="0x220" hint.pcm.0.irq="5" hint.pcm.0.drq="1" hint.pcm.0.flags="0x0" to /boot/device.hints. The port was set up using Compaq Setup for Portables floppy. I can see the card in dmesg as sbc0: unknown: <PNP0401> can't assign resources (port) unknown: <PNP0501> can't assign resources (port) unknown: <PNP0700> can't assign resources (port) sbc0: <ESS ES1869 (Compaq OEM)> at port 0x230-0x23f,0x388-0x38b,0x300-0x301 irq 5 drq 0,1 on isa0 sbc0: [GIANT-LOCKED] unknown: <PNP0303> can't assign resources (port) unknown: <PNP0f13> can't assign resources (irq) unknown: <PNP0c02> can't assign resources (memory) but I cannot see pcm, and /dev/sndstat is empty: # cat /dev/sndstat FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm) Installed devices: # What am I missing? Are the "unknown" messages relevant? many thanks anton -- Anton Shterenlikht Room 2.6, Queen's Building Mech Eng Dept Bristol University University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TR, UK Tel: +44 (0)117 928 8233 Fax: +44 (0)117 929 4423 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
