I've been having problems getting sound to work on FreeBSD 5.3. It worked find
on 4.10 (before the upgrade) using the new sound system.
I've googled for answers. I when through the Handbook section on setting up
the sound system twice to make sure I got everything right. The 5.3 install
is a new install from CD, then source cvsup and the usual make/build
world/kernel to install the system. It is an SMP system.
Here is the relevant part of dmesg :
pcm0: <Creative CT5880-C> port 0xb800-0xb83f irq 19 at device 9.0 on pci0
Here is what sndstat says:
$ cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
pcm0: <Creative CT5880-C> at io 0xb800 irq 19 kld snd_es137x (1p/1r/2v
Any suggestions on a simple command line tool to test the sound system out?
I'm using KDE (installed with base system). I noticed that artswrapper is not
completely up-to-date so I am going to update all relevant parts of KDE to
get it up to date for testing.
