Hello all, i'm very new(noob) to FreeBSD, an Ubuntu user, and former winblow$ user... Anyway who cares, on to my dilemma. I'm unable to get my SB X-fi sound card working. I tried setting up my sound card with "kldload snd_emu10k1" in the terminal, but then I get this error: "kldload: can't load snd_emu10k1: File exists". At first I though this was FreeBSD's way of saying installation was successful and reboot, but um... suffice to say that wasn't the case as KMix won't show anything. I was able to get this same sound card(duh) working under Ubuntu 64 without any problems:e, but it refuses to work under freebsd. I'm running FreeBSD 7.1 64bit with KDE 3.5 and everything else works wonderfully(as can be expected) except this sound card, which doesn't work at all. I'm not concerned about any special BS features/frills ect. I just want to be able to hear sound. Please if anyone can help, I really want this to work, for the most part I'm enjoying freebsd, as it's faster than ubuntu, and if I get my sound card working I may just replace ubuntu entirely. Is there a way I could port the X-fi linux driver to FreeBSD? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide me.
