i have been playing with FBSD for almost a year now. i would very much like to use
it for music recording and editing. i have installed several programs (audacity,
synth modular, etc.) which all want to access /dev/dsp, however that device only
responds with error messages like 'device busy' or 'invalid playback device'.
<snip> 4.8-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE-p3 #9: <snip> i386
relevant lines from kernel config:
device sbc <--- i recently added these two lines and recompiled,
option PNPBIOS <--- hoping it might make a difference. it didn't. :(
relevant lines from dmesg:
pcm0: <ESS Technology Maestro-2E> port 0x1400-0x14ff irq 5 at device 8.0 on pci0
pcm0: <SigmaTel STAC9721/9723 ac97 codec>
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
pcm0: <ESS Technology Maestro-2E> at I/O port 0x1400 irq 5 (4p/0r/0v channels duplex)
cat /dev/dsp ---> cat: /dev/dsp: Device busy
fstat | grep dsp ---> provides no info
neither esd nor any other sound daemon of which i am aware is running.
xmms works fine (however it seems to access OSS drivers, not /dev/dsp directly.
i have hunted all over trying to find a solution for this, but to no avail. i came
following Problem Report --> http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=48338, but am
neither sure it is the same thing nor certain about how to follow-up on open PRs.
finally fixing this would really make my week. any suggestions?
thank you so much,
