The line: "device pcm" needs to be added to a new kernel configuration file. The easiest way to do this is to copy /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC to a new file. Follow directions at: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html I think the "pcm0" line is for ISA sound cards. > I try to do 'kldload snd_pcm'.
