Yes David, some more suggestions: 1. If possible, boot your system from win to figure out irq and port settings of your soundcard. Then enter the win settings into /boot/device.hints config. from /usr/src/sys/conf/NOTES: # For non-PnP cards: device sbc hint.sbc.0.at="isa" hint.sbc.0.port="0x220" hint.sbc.0.irq="5" hint.sbc.0.drq="1" hint.sbc.0.flags="0x15" 2. Some DSDTs expext to find a microsoft os on your machine. in case of this the tunable "hw.acpi.osname" can be set to the expexted os-name (man 4 acpi). 3. You can use acpidump(8) to disassemble the ACPI DSDT table to ASL and dump it to a file. Edit any suspect code in there and use iasl(8) to recompile ASL to AML bytecode. The resulting bytecode can be loaded from userland instead of the original AML code by adding the lines acpi_dsdt_load="YES" acpi_dsdt_name="/boot/your_dsdt.aml" to your /boot/loader.conf. Peter Schultz has written an ACPI howto, which describes step by step how to fix your DSDT. http://bis.midco.net/pmes/acpi.html regards ch > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to > "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
