I have problem with my laptop;it freezes/crashes on BOOT when I compile "device pcm" into the kernel.
I tried loading snd_pcm, but nothign happens. kldstat shows snd_pcm, but no entries in /dev
also, there aren;t any messages in /var/logs/messages when i kldload the sound module.
i tried inserting snd_neomagic_load="YES" into loader.conf but that only nets the same result as if i compiled "device pcm" in the kernel.
yes, sound does exist. it is a neomagic sound chip. 256AV. sound detection is where it freezes at in the broken kernel.
I read the sound documetation, (no help), posted the problem on a few forums (no help).
Maybe someone here is better?
