Sorry for the delayed reply.

In /boot/loader.conf


didn't help.

Here is a rehash of the other things I have tried from an earlier post:

I am running FreeBSD 5.4.

I am using the card in a SuperMicro X5DP8-G2 motherboard PCI-X slot.

 From the snd_emu10k1(4) man page:

     In the kernel configuration file:

     device        sound
     device        "snd_emu10k1"

 From the sound(4) man page:

     In the /boot/device.hints file:


     In the /boot/loader.conf file:


I have tried all the above alone and in various combinations.

cat /dev/sndstat reports no installed devices.

Does anyone know how to make this thing work with FreeBSD 5.4?
