KDE looks for sound card support when starting up. The default installation of FreeBSD 4.8 does not have sound card support compiled in the kernel. If you have not added sound card support to the kernel configuration and compiled a custom kernel, there is no sound card support for KDE to find. If you have a PCI sound card, it is likely that adding 'device pcm' to the kernel configuration file will work. For kernel configuration and compilation instructions, see: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig.html Best of luck, Andrew Gould _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
