I find I only add the device pcm line to my kernel and everything works fine. Gnome, KDE, console beeps. Everything works and I don't usually worry about the sound servers. When you install one of the window managers, as long as you install the multimedia package, the correct sound server gets installed too. This has been working for me for about 5 years now.


Update here...I have removed the entries in /boot/loader.conf and now only have the kernel compiled with my 'device PCM' entry.

'dmesg | grep pcm' shows my soundcard entry and cat /dev/sndstat shows it as well.

I have rebooted after taking the entries out of loader.conf.

When I try something like

% play KDE_Beep_Ahem.wav

I get:

play: /dev/dsp: Operation not supported by device

What might be causing this that I could look into?
