>From the FreeBSD Handbook, 7.2 Setting Up the Sound Card:
"The first thing to do is adding the generic audio driver sound(4)
to the kernel, for that you will need to add the following line to
the kernel configuration file:
Then we have to add the support for our sound card."
Which is where 'device snd_es137x' comes in, so yes, you
do still need to add that line to your kernel conf _if_ you want
sound support built in to the kernel. If not, you can add the
appropriate line to /boot/loader.conf to load the module at
