The 5.1 kernel doesn't enable sound by default. You just have to rebuild the kernel, which you can do by following the instructions on this page: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html As long as you're careful it'll go fine. All I had to do was copy the generic kernel config file, add a "device pcm" line to the custom config file, and rebuild the kernel using the config file. It's not hard if you take your time. -- Matthew Graybosch http://www.starbreaker.net "I am become root, shatterer of kernels." _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
