I'm trying to get a sound from my laptop. I can see the actual card in dmesg,
but no audio framework driver (no pcm).
hardware: i386 armada 1700 laptop
sound: ESS 1869 16-bit Plug and Play (PnP)
OS: FBSD 6.3-prerelease
I checked that the sound is working using Compaq PC diagnostics floppy.
to the kernel configuration file and
to /boot/device.hints. The port was set up using Compaq Setup for Portables
I can see the card in dmesg as sbc0:
unknown: <PNP0401> can't assign resources (port)
unknown: <PNP0501> can't assign resources (port)
unknown: <PNP0700> can't assign resources (port)
sbc0: <ESS ES1869 (Compaq OEM)> at port 0x230-0x23f,0x388-0x38b,0x300-0x301 irq
5 drq 0,1 on isa0
unknown: <PNP0303> can't assign resources (port)
unknown: <PNP0f13> can't assign resources (irq)
unknown: <PNP0c02> can't assign resources (memory)
but I cannot see pcm, and /dev/sndstat is empty:
# cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
What am I missing?
Are the "unknown" messages relevant?
