First, what version of FreeBSD are you using?
Newer versions allow you to kldload the drivers, without rebooting and
without building a new kernel...older versions require you to build a new
kernel and reboot.
If I recall, all 4.x versions will require a kernel recompile, 5.x doesnt.
If supported, simply execute as root:
And this will load /all/ supported drivers for all cards. It's likely
that one of these will work. :)
You can add the following to /boot/loader.conf to do this at boot time:
Or, follow the directions in man pcm:
For a card with bridge driver support, and a PnP card:
to your kernel config file. After building and booting the new kernel
(see the Handbook for how to do this):
cd /dev; sh MAKEDEV snd0
to create the devices.
