I'm running FreeBSD 5.4-stable. The driver is for a Creative Audigy2.

I also tried to compile the driver into the kernel before but that fails, 
that is the reason for using the driver from the ports. Sound works fine, 
except for the dvd player. I'll look into the audio/digital mode first and 
see if it works.


Any fool can paint a picture, but it takes a wise person to be able to
sell it.
