Apparently something has changed but how do I configure system to play music? Do I just miss plug ins and a audio cable or I still need to fix the system.
If you got OpenSound drivers installed then you should look at other utility that is part of OpenSound drivers package not /dev/sndstat- I don't remember exact name- look at readme/install file.
FreeBSD doesn't support "digital extraction" from audiocd-s right now. So, you may need audio cable from cd to sound card for this or rip and encode your cds with KaudioCreator CD ripper tool from multimedia menu.
