Thanks for the advice -- I've already checked there, as per the
instructions in the handbook. That's why I have the line
in my loader.conf, as per the directions in the handbook, and told to me
by many on the #freebsd channel on freenode.
I do get sound playing, however, the problem is, wherenever I do get
sound playing, the time is compressed -- it plays 10 times (or even
more) faster than it should be.
It's annoying, I guess, because I easily enough was able to get OSS to
work with Linux kernel 2.4.x and ALSA in the 2.6.x kernel on this
computer, but I still cannot for the life of me get the FreeBSD kernel
to play audio on this computer. :(
