[this was posted to c.u.b.f.m but received no responses] Hi, I am trying to get a usb sound card (xitel) to work. I have had some success, but also some problems, and i thought someone might be able to offer solutions. I am using freebsd 4.8 on 2 different computers.
On one computer (a dell v350 desktop where the sound was already working) i plugged the sound card into the usb slot, and it just worked. on the one hand, this is great, but on the other it makes it mysterious to me how it worked. Further, if i start kde w/ the card plugged in, half way through startup the computer reboots -- afaik, there are no messages or anything, simply a reboot. On a second computer (a toshiba 2515cds laptop) which is the one i actually need it to work on, after building sound into the kernel, the card causes mpg123 to freeze. ctrl-c does not work, and the only way to do anything is to press the power button. grep pcm /var/run/dmesg.boot gives a the long message below ... pcm0: <USB Audio> on uaudio0 pcm0: <Yamaha OPL-SAx> at port 0x220-0x22f, 0x530-0x537, 0x388-0x38f, 0x330-0x331, 0x370-0x371, irq 5 drq 1,0 on isa0 pcm0: [repeat of USB line] pcm1: [repeat of Yamaha line] pcm0: [repeat of USB line] pcm1: [repeat of Yamaha line] So, it seems that there are drivers, but something is amiss in the configuration. also, rebooting and freezing are very un-freebsd things, so i am a little worried. Any ideas? -drs __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? The New Yahoo!
