I reinstalled and re upgraded FreeBSD 7.0 on my drive. The testing distribution worked better than the stable. Some of my problems may not be directed to the right mailing list for help. Please let me know where I can get the information.

By testing, do you mean -CURRENT? What tag are you using in your supfile?

As for the mailing list, this is a reasonable place to start. If you don't get a solution here, maybe try multimedia for the gstreamer problems. There does seem to be a kde-specific mailing list; see https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/kde-freebsd, and also http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/eresources.html#ERESOURCES-MAIL for the full list of lists.

Sound card is no longer detected.

Maybe since upgrading you are no longer loading whatever kernel module it is that the card requires. You can

# kldload sound.ko

...to load all sound modules, for the purpose of finding out which one you need. BTW, what make and model sound card is it? Also please post the output of the following commands:

$ uname -a
$ dmesg | grep ^pcm
$ pciconf -lv
$ kldstat

DCOP server for KDE3 does not start. KDE hangs and has to be shut does by a vtty.

These seem like issues with X and/or KDE. Are you able to run some other window manager, e.g. twm?

Gnome-audio gstreamer trouble.

There were some notes recently about gstreamer in /usr/ports/UPDATING; look there. If you can be (a lot) more specific about the problem, someone here may well be able to help. That is, tell us what you were trying to do, what command you issued, what result you expected, and what result you got.
