Hi, I am having problems configuring sound for a PnP ISA Sound Blaster 16 under FreeBSD5.1 with KDE3.1. I have followed the multimedia instructions in the handbook and rebuild the kernel with:
device pcm device sbc Then, using "grep pcm /var/run/dmesg.boot" it finds "pcm" on "sbc1", and I am able to play an audio CD using "cdcontrol". I have also modified my "/etc/sysctl.conf" adding: sysctl hw.snd.pcm0.vchans=4 sysctl hw.snd.maxautovchans=4 Given that during startup KDE reports that it cannot find "/dev/dsp", I have tried to configure the settings of KDE in the control centre under its sound system IO dialog to set the custom device to "/dev/dsp0.0" then, "/dev/dsp0.1" and tried to test one of the KDE default notification sound, with no success. I also noted that from the kernel rebuild their are no device files for: /dev/audio /dev/midi /dev/mixer /dev/music /dev/sequencer /dev/pss /dev/dsp /dev/dspW Where the console history (from which I started KDE using startx) reported that KDE could not find a number of theses drivers. Noting that the only sound related device files are (X = 0 to 3): /dev/dsp0.X /dev/dspW0.X At this stage I am running out of ideas, any help would be greatly appreciated. Regards Martin PS: the console history also reports a broken pipe with a signal 15. I think this is unrelated. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
