    Default soundcard not working 5.4

    Hey,
    I don't know if this is the right list but I will ask anyway. I want to
    have FreeBSD as my main OS the only thing that is stopping me is I am
    unable to get my sound card to work I have an "Azalia" based sound card.
    In Linux it comes up as an ICH6 based soundcard and after checking the
    5.4 Hardware compatibilty I proceeded to download it. Im using the 5.4
    RC1, when I load the drivers (I used kldload snd_ich and noticing no
    change tried kldload snd_driver and all loaded with out error but when
    I type in :
    $cat /dev/sndstat I get no listing and dmesg shows no pcm either. Is
    this soundcard supported?

    cheers

    Have you tried doing a "kldload snd_*"
    Have you edited the kernelconfig file

    Have you tried doing a "kldload snd_*"
    Have you added "device sound" to the kernelconfig file and recompiled
    and installed the new kernel correctly?
