Hello all, I have FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE running on a Thinkpad T43. It works wonderfully, I love it so far. The only problem is that I can't get my sound card to output any sound.
This is what pciconf says: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:30:2: class=0x040100 card=0x05671014 chip=0x266e8086 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Intel Corporation' device = 'Intel Corporation 82830M/MG SDRAM Controller / Ho AC '97 Audio Controller/ Sigmatel (SoundMAX Integrated Digital Audio)' class = multimedia subclass = audio Now, the handbook says that this card is supported by the snd_ich module. I first tried loading this module, but I couldn't get any sound out of it at all. Then, I tried statically-compiling the module into the kernel. This also didn't work. I'm at a complete loss. Every resource I've found says that snd_ich should support this card. In fact, I know that it supports the card, because /dev/sndstat says so: FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm) Installed devices: pcm0: <Intel ICH6 (82801FB)> at io 0x90040800, 0x90040400 irq 22 bufsz 16384 (1p/1r/1v channels duplex default) My mixer settings: Mixer vol is currently set to 30:30 Mixer pcm is currently set to 75:75 Mixer line is currently set to 75:75 Mixer mic is currently set to 25:25 Mixer cd is currently set to 75:75 Mixer rec is currently set to 25:25 Mixer igain is currently set to 25:25 Mixer ogain is currently set to 50:50 Mixer line1 is currently set to 75:75 Mixer phin is currently set to 25:25 Mixer phout is currently set to 25:25 Recording source: mic And uname -a: FreeBSD mephistophilis 6.3-STABLE FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE #5: Sun Jan 20 14:00:12 EST 2008 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/MEPHISTOPHILIS i386 (Apologies for the line-wrapping. GMail doesn't seem to play nicely with long lines) I've tried doing `cat somefile > /dev/dsp` to no avail, as per the handbook. I've also used Mplayer on some MP3s I have, but this also does not work. Has anyone seen this problem before, or know how to fix it? I would really love to keep using FreeBSD as a desktop machine, but I might have to use Linux again if I can't get my sound working. Thanks!
