I guess I was trying my best to avoid having to recompile the Kernel, and stick with the stock kernel in 5.1. Are there any alternatives to recompiling?

Do you have the following kernel options compiled in your kernel?

device          pcm

I believe you don't need a soundblaster kernel module then, but I am not sure.

Hey Folks.
I just subscribed to the list, but I've been using FreeBSD on and off
for a few months now. There has, however, been one thing lacking from my
FreeBSD setup and that is the ability to play sound!

I followed the directions in the handbook (namely adding the line to
load the snd_ab16.ko kernel module to loader.conf) and adjusted the
volume. The sound, when it does play, is compressed -- i.e. runs at 10
times the speed it should. I can't even play any audio with XMMS.

Anybody have any ideas? It's a Creative SoundBlaster 16 PnP ISA card
(model CT4180), and it's in a PIII450 box with an ASUS P2BF motherboard.
Any help will be appreciated.

There is a *long* list of loadable modules in
/boot/kernel/ ... check out the ones that have
snd* in the title.

Then, $man kldload.....

Thanks for the advice -- I've already checked there, as per the instructions in the handbook. That's why I have the line
in my loader.conf, as per the directions in the handbook, and told to me by many on the #freebsd channel on freenode.

I do get sound playing, however, the problem is, wherenever I do get sound playing, the time is compressed -- it plays 10 times (or even more) faster than it should be.

It's annoying, I guess, because I easily enough was able to get OSS to work with Linux kernel 2.4.x and ALSA in the 2.6.x kernel on this computer, but I still cannot for the life of me get the FreeBSD kernel to play audio on this computer. :(
