So, I guess you've tried all the usual stuff, like kldload'ing the
snd.ko driver and checking the dmesg output it generates?
What's the output of:
# pciconf -lv
(that will scan your PCI bus and report verbosely on all of the PCI
devices it finds. Usually if it can put a name to a card, then that
card is supported.)
It's not hopeless if pciconf doesn't recognise your card -- it may be
a new revision of a similar piece of kit, with a new PCI ID number,
but that would work well enough with one of the existing drivers.
However, that would take a small kernel patch to make happen. Or you
may be S.O.L. in which case, buying a cheapo soundcard that you know
is supported would be your best bet.
