It's as if it played it as requested but I hear nothing. My volume is up on the speakers, mixer levels are good...just no sound. :-(

Don't use both device pcm and the .ko modules. The sound won't work at

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
play: /dev/dsp: Operation not supported by device
What might be causing this that I could look into?
%play /usr/local/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Ahem.wav play: /dev/dsp: Operation not supported by device
I get that same message after I've shut down the arts server
However artsplay /usr/local/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Ahem.wav
works fine as long as artsd is running
%ps -ax | grep arts 14333 p0 S 0:01.69 artsd 14343 p0 R+ 0:00.00 grep arts
If you have KDE installed, try:
%artsd & %artsplay /usr/local/share/sounds/KDE_Beep_Ahem.wav
You should hear Mr Ahem clear his throat right from the command line.
Can't connect to sound server
Please try: ps -ax | grep arts
and see if artsd is running
If you start it manually you need to run artsd & before you type the test file entry.

No console beeps either.
