Description Paul Belair 2008-01-23 20:20:00 UTC
Installed ALL Except ports on K8V-X SE R2.00 Using raid 1

installed gnome through pkg_add -r gnome

I'm a newbie who learned about FreeBSD on a youtube video showing Beryl
on FreeBSD and I couldn't resist.

How-To-Repeat: Clean install select all (x11 All system sources, binaries and x window
system) or just xuser

Thank You For the OS

Have you read the FreeBSD Handbook which explains how to load the
sound driver for your system?


Since you didn't tell us which sound card you have on your
motherboard, I did a little googleing on the motherboard and this


Says that your card is:

Audio: ADI AD1888 SoundMAx 6-channel audio CODEC, S/PDIF out interface support

And a googling of FreeBSD and AD1888 brings up PR 75860, which shows
that that card has been supported since FreeBSD 5.x by using the
snd_via8233 kernel module.

If none of this works, post a "pciconf -vl" from your system.
