Hi Everyone Seems that quite a few people are having sound probs !
I am about to join in here - I also cannot get my sound card to operate.I have a P2 with a 20 gig Hdd and 128Mb RAM - the machine has onboard sound so I tried all the options - PNP BIOS, pcm, anything generic, and the sound pro config (as thats what the bios indicated it was) from the handbook, no good,(I did reconfig the kernel each time as well) so I disabled the onboard sound and installed a sound card - no idea of brand, it came from a dead computer but I knew it was working be fore the motherboard fell over. Main problem is my system recognises 2 video cards (as it did before I disabled the onboard sound) and the new sound card is not recognised (as far as I can see) Output of cat /dev/sndstat FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm) Installed Devices pcm0: <Ess 1868 DSP> at io 0x220 irq 5 drq 1:0 bufsz 4096 (1p/1r/0v channels duplex) (isn't this saying that it is working ?) Output of uname -a FreeBSD Rockstar.richardflanagan.com.au 4.8 STABLE #1 Tue Aug 26 10:10:39 EST 2003 [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/DRAGON i386 Output of grep pcm /var/run/demsg.boot pcm0: <ESS 18xx DSP> on sbc0 (doesn't this also indicate sound is happening ?) I get no errors when I try to play an MP3 through xmms, problem is I get no sound either. The error message saying my sound card isn't configured when I start kde has gone away as well Output of pciconf -lv vendor = 'Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS)' device = 'SiS5597 Host to PCI bridge' class = bridge subclass = HOST-PCI [EMAIL PROTECTED]:1:0: class=0x060100 card=0x00000000 chip=0x00081039 rev=0x01 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS)' device = 'SiS85C503/5513 PCI to ISA Bridge (LPC Bridge)' class = bridge subclass = PCI-ISA [EMAIL PROTECTED]:1:1: class=0x01018a card=0x500d8a02 chip=0x55131039 rev=0xd0 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS)' device = 'SiS5513 EIDE Controller (A,B step)' class = mass storage subclass = ATA [EMAIL PROTECTED]:11:0: class=0x030000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x88115333 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'S3 Incorporated' device = '86C732 Trio32, 86C764 Trio64, 86C765 Trio64V+ Rev 01' class = display subclass = VGA [EMAIL PROTECTED]:13:0: class=0x020000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x802910ec rev=0x00 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Realtek Semiconductor' device = 'RTL8029 NE2000 compatible Ethernet' class = network subclass = ethernet [EMAIL PROTECTED]:20:0: class=0x030000 card=0x00000000 chip=0x02001039 rev=0x65 hdr=0x00 vendor = 'Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS)' device = 'SiS5597/98 Onboard Graphics Controller' class = display subclass = VGA Which as you can see shows two video cards and no sound card. Heck, I dunno, I'm willing to try anything now. All help, helpful or not will be appreciated.
