Sorry, I gave the wrong patch. You should get snd_RELENG_6_2005*
instead of snd_RELENG_6_0_2005*. Still, the problem (non working
sound) is quite interesting for me. I'm mostly interested for the
output of /usr/sbin/mixer and cat /dev/sndstat (with sysctl
hw.snd.verbose=2). Please try again. Your AC97 codec id has been
added. for hints and common
