A private e-mail to me mentioned a similar problem on the -current maillist:
<http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=696541+0+current/freebsd-current> After reading that thread, I added a line to device.hints to keep ACPI completely disabled: hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" and kept these lines in loader.conf: snd_mss_load="YES" snd_pcm_load="YES" By golly, IBM Crystal Audio[tm] is working now! And it's even way better than OSS! ;) ...at least with the little bit I've tested so far... (crossing fingers & whatever else come in pairs) The system feels 'heavier' now -- I bet it is due to irqs not being so fast (edge/level triggers) as with ACPI enabled? Thank y'all for helping, really appreciate it. -- Paul Seniura System Specialist State of Okla.
