Default Realtek ALC880 sound driver
I'm new to FreeBSD systems, i found that PCBSD is just the UNIX like OS i was looking for, everything was fine after installation till i realize that i can't make the sound work at all (Realtek HD audio), every time i start a KDE sesion it shows a dialog with this message:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
" Sound server information message:
Error while initializyn the sound driver:

device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or directory)

The sound server will continue, using the null output device. "
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I made some research on goolge but i didn't found anything usefull.

I have some limited skills on Linux so I just use dmesg to see if there was some sort of audio divice information, but once again i got nothing but this:

%dmesg
pci0: <multimedia> at device 27.0 (no driver attached)
pci0: <multimedia> at device 27.0 (no driver attached)
......among other things......

My ( /boot/loader.conf ) has:
snd_driver_load="YES"

also:

%cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:

I anyone could help me on this, i don't have any idea about compiling the FreeBSD kernel, but be sure that i'll do it if necesary.

thanks and my excuces if i misspell something, i'm cuban and my english is not perfect.

Maybe this soundcard is not supported yet in FreeBSD? Search http://google.com/bsd - maybe someone know how to enable it.

Try this as root:

Code:
# dmesg |grep pcm
Here is the output from my system:

Code:
PCBSD# dmesg|grep pcm
pcm0: <Intel ICH2 (82801BA)> port 0x2000-0x20ff,0x2400-0x243f irq 17 at device 31.5 on pci0
pcm0: <Analog Devices AD1885 AC97 Codec>
pcm0: measured ac97 link rate at 55944 Hz
PCBSD#
If it detected any actual sound cards it will show up.

Although I don't see your card in the hardware list:
