options PNPBIOS unrecognized in 5.1-RELEASE

I've found that FreeBSD so far has supported every odd sound card
I've thrown its way.

Even (especially!) those on-board sound things built into
motherboards and laptops these days.  FreeBSD supports them all (and
Windows usually doesn't without the special CD-Rom from the
motherboard manufacturer.)

Just add "device pcm" to the end of the kernel conf file, build a
new kernel, and I'll bet almost any sound card will work on reboot.

This question has been answered many times on this question list.
You would have found your answer if you had searched the questions
archive like you are supposed to do before posting here.

Subject: options PNPBIOS unrecognized in 5.1-RELEASE


I have been trying unsuccessfully to get my on board sound card
working in
5.1 RELEASE. This is an Intel 82801BA ICH2 device on a D845HV

Following the instructions in the Handbook at " Onboard
(which were confirmed by a couple of archived messages on the
subject; but
as usual no "solved" message), I added

options PNPBIOS

to my kernel conf file. The resulting error when I try to reconfig
kernel is:

TELTRON: unknown option "PNPBIOS"

thanks for any help.
