KDE looks for sound card support when starting up. The default installation
of FreeBSD 4.8 does not have sound card support compiled in the kernel. If
you have not added sound card support to the kernel configuration and
compiled a custom kernel, there is no sound card support for KDE to find.
If you have a PCI sound card, it is likely that adding 'device pcm' to the
kernel configuration file will work. For kernel configuration and
compilation instructions, see:
