Why is everyone running 6 current and expecting it to work? They just created that branch recently and I seriously doubt that its even close to usable. We could run 5-Current because it was pretty far along.. 6 is "new".
Last time i looked at the handbook it said NOT to run CURRENT unless you are a developer/know what you are doing. I think 5.3 beta is bleeding edge enough for everyone.
Based on recent posts, i've concluded that several video cards and possibly sound cards are currently broken in 6-Current plus maybe some NICs. Translation: Don't try this at home.
Another reason not to adopt 6 so early is that it encourages port maintainers to screw over people on stable versions. I had to upgrade to 5 early because of broken ports. Lets not go through that again. I know technically that only the ports tree that comes with a release is officially supported, but then again everyone always recommends CVSUPing the ports on Questions. Besides, who wants to run outdated and possibly insecure versions of software.

Is there support on 6.0-current for soundcards? I put the usual device pcm on kernconf, but it says it don't know about that. I tried device sound, it compiles, but there don't come support. If it's not supposed to, sorry for this message.
