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!
Do bear in mind that you are running an outdated version of an "early
adopter's" release of the OS.
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
Nowhere in the handbook is the snd_sb16.ko module even mentioned. Did you try just loading the snd_pcm.ko module?
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.
That's not what "compressed" normally means in relation to audio.
What did you use to play audio besides xmms? Did something different happen when you used xmms, or was that just
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.
I have such a card (probably not *quite* the same model) in my -STABLE box... _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
I had used more than just XMMS -- I used cdcontrol (making sure the volume was turned up on the analogue CD input), which didn't play audio at all, as was the case with XMMS. When I tried using applications that use sound (i.e. Gaim), the sound was compressed (sped up if you will).
As I said before, the sound is compressed -- not in the data sense, but rather in the analogue sense where the wavelength of a waveform decreases, as does the period. I appologize if I had confused you, but I'm not a Software Engineer -- merely a lowly Electrical Engineering Student. :)
I'm not quite sure what you mean by outdated - does FreeBSD go with the Linux Kernel release numbers - odd for development, even for stable - or am I missing something, because uname-a tells me I'm running 5.1-RELEASE.
