I'm using KDE 3.1.2. When I start KDE I get the error message about
/dev/dsp. I haven't worried about that yet.
Jesse Guardiani wrote that he had his working correctly. All of the
modules he suggested are already installed. When I 'kldload snd_ich'
it returns 'Can't load: File exists.' yet it does not show on
'kldstat' as here:
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 7 0xc0100000 5f2798 kernel
2 1 0xc06f3000 4a30c acpi.ko
3 1 0xc4594000 18000 linux.ko
I haven't tried cdcontrol. Since 'dmesg| grep pcm' returns nothing, I
figure no sound is running.
FreeBSD does not require MAKEDEV anymore, correct?
