Default CA0106-DAT Audigy LS [can't use driver emu10k1]
hello!
first of all i want to say many thanks to this community!
i have installed bsd for the first time and i a damn noob

my sound card is not working and i have tried almost everythink i know..
after booting my bsd i get this error:
Code:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing 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.
typing in konsole pciconf -lv i get:
Code:
none0@pci0:10:0:        class=0x040100 card=0x100a1102 chip=0x00071102 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Creative Labs'
    device   = 'CA0106-DAT Audigy LS'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = audio
..i suppose that this means that my sound driver is not the right one..
ops:

following some topic that i found on this forum, i have decided to use the emu10k1 driver, setting my loader.conf in this way:
Code:
 splash_pcx_load="YES"
bitmap_load="YES"
bitmap_name="/boot/loading-screen.pcx"
linux_load="YES"
hw.pci.allow_unsupported_io_range="1"
hw.ata.atapi_dma="1"
autoboot_delay="2"
#snd_pcm_load="YES"
sound_load="YES"
midi_load="NO"
snd_emu10k1_load="YES"
snd_emu10kx_load="N0"
if is correct tu assume that kldstat shows all the files that are linked, and so they are working, i got this:

Code:
Id Refs Address    Size     Name
 1   15 0xc0400000 730b2c   kernel
 3    2 0xc0b3c000 1af50    linux.ko
 4    2 0xc0b57000 22ae8    sound.ko
 5    1 0xc0b7a000 7674     snd_emu10k1.ko
 6    1 0xc0b82000 58554    acpi.ko
 7    1 0xc3ccf000 a000     ntfs.ko
 8    1 0xc3d18000 6000     linprocfs.ko
 9    1 0xc3d2b000 4000     logo_saver.ko

as you can see, in my loader.conf, i have snd_eum10k1_load ="YES" and snd_emu10kx_load="N0" beacause i have tried to install also an another driver that i found on this link:
http://chibis.persons.gfk.ru/audigy/def ... .htm#build
but im not able to run the make file beacuse i got this error:
Code:
cd emu10kx-2005-10-21
%make
"/usr/share/mk/bsd.kmod.mk", line 12: "can't find kernel source tree"
can u plz help me? i got no clue on how can i continue this quest....
:roll:

Code:
% cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
%
it looks like that no sound is installed... i think.

i got an another sound card integrated on my motherboard:

Code:
none1@pci0:17:5:        class=0x040100 card=0x140f147b chip=0x30591106 rev=0x50 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'VIA Technologies Inc'
    device   = 'VT8233/33A/8235/8237 AC97 Enhanced Audio Controller'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = audio
can this sound card create me a conflict installing drivers?
i think not, but maybe it is a good idea to let u know that there is an another sound card in my pc.

thank you.

Default Update..
i have found that driver on this link too:
http://www.pbidir.com/packages.php?code=267

i have just run this .pbi package, thinking that this solution should be the best one, but now i'm getting this error:
Code:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing 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.
my cat /dev/sndstat is still the same... damn....! :x

update:
reading the handbook, i found out that my bsd can automaticly choose the best driver needed, writing this line in /boot/loader.conf
Code:
snd_driver_load="YES"
after rebooting i got this:
Code:
none0@pci0:10:0:        class=0x040100 card=0x100a1102 chip=0x00071102 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Creative Labs'
    device   = 'CA0106-DAT Audigy LS'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = audio

AND 

pcm0@pci0:17:5: class=0x040100 card=0x140f147b chip=0x30591106 rev=0x50 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'VIA Technologies Inc'
    device   = 'VT8233/33A/8235/8237 AC97 Enhanced Audio Controller'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = audio
:twisted: now my integrated sound card is working perfectly, but there is no way to make the audigy works...

does anyone have a tip to help me? please...
