Sound on Dell Dimension 8300 (FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE) - FreeBSD

Hi, I am trying to enable the builtin sound card present in Dell Dimension 8300 but cant seem to get it done. As far as I remember, in FreeBSD 5.3 it can be done simply by having the following two options in the kernel config file: device sound device snd_ich However, FreeBSD 5.1 does not recognize any of these even (Even man sound or man snd_ich does not work even though it should work on any FreeBSD 5.* So I guess I have to give some hardware hints in order to config MYCONFIG gives the following error report: ================================================= config: ...

    Default Sound on Dell Dimension 8300 (FreeBSD 5.1-RELEASE)


    Hi,
    I am trying to enable the builtin sound card present in Dell
    Dimension 8300 but cant seem to get it done. As far as I remember, in
    FreeBSD 5.3 it can be done simply by having the following two options in
    the kernel config file:

    device sound
    device snd_ich

    However, FreeBSD 5.1 does not recognize any of these even (Even man sound
    or man snd_ich does not work even though it should work on any FreeBSD 5.*
    So I guess I have to give some hardware hints in order to

    config MYCONFIG gives the following error report:
    =================================================

    config: Error: device "sound" is unknown
    config: Error: device "snd_ich" is unknown

    (/boot/kernel/ however has the files snd_ich.ko as well as snd_pcm.ko)

    The output of cat /dev/sndstat is as follows:
    =============================================

    If you have a file named snd_ich.ko in /boot/kernel/:
    Try (as root)

    #kldload snd_ich.ko

    and see if your sound begins to work

    (you can check the status of loaded modules with the command kldstat(8))

    You need the old-style (aka 4.x style) "device pcm" in versions prior to
    5.3-REL (maybe 5.2.1). However, you should REALLY consider upgrading to
    either 5.3-REL or 5.4-PRE as ALOT of stuff has been done since 5.1-REL

    When I do kldload snd_ich.ko I get an error message:

    kldload: can't load snd_ich.ko: File exists

    On doing kldstat -v I can see that the kernel module contains:

    pcm/snd_ich.

    I think, during bootup the OS cannot associate the particular sound card
    (which is built into the motherboard) with the necessary device driver.

    Thanks,
    amit

    Yup, I already have "device pcm" in my config file. The bootup procedure
    does not seem to recognize the device.
