Hello all, I managed to get FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE installed on my Laptop, which I'm happy about since it's got decent hardware in it and works great with the Video Card so far. The Sound Card is.... Where I get a little hazy. I literally can't remember which part of this goes into /boot/loader.conf. So, here is what I did: Code: Me@root# kldload snd_driver Then, once it finished, I did this: Code: cat /dev/sndstat This is the output: Code: FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 32bit 2009061500/i386) Installed Devices: pcm0: <Intel ICH4 (82801DB)> (play/rec) default OK, so, my issue is that I don't remember which section of that I do after this: Code: vi /boot/loader.conf snd_newpcm_load="YES" I don't remember which section I add to that file so it loads my driver at boot. It's been a while, and the Sound Card my Laptop has, though a decent one in most OSs, I don't remember which portion I need to add to that /boot/loader.conf file. Anyway, I just need to know two things: #1. Which section do I add to the part that says snd_newpcm? #2. Once done, I can't remember how to play sounds without being root, and I'm kind of half asleep right now, so, either a section of the handbook that works, or, just a quickie "do this" is all fine with me. That's like literally the ONLY thing I can't remember right now lol. By the way, 8.1-RELEASE ROCKS!
