I'm using KDE 3.1.2. When I start KDE I get the error message about /dev/dsp. I haven't worried about that yet. Jesse Guardiani wrote that he had his working correctly. All of the modules he suggested are already installed. When I 'kldload snd_ich' it returns 'Can't load: File exists.' yet it does not show on 'kldstat' as here: bash-2.05b$ kldstat Id Refs Address Size Name 1 7 0xc0100000 5f2798 kernel 2 1 0xc06f3000 4a30c acpi.ko 3 1 0xc4594000 18000 linux.ko I haven't tried cdcontrol. Since 'dmesg| grep pcm' returns nothing, I figure no sound is running.
