The last thing I have to do to complete my install is to configure the sound card. I have a Sound Blaster Audigy. I have done a few googles and it appears as there have been some issues with installing this. Anyone currently using this card or have some suggestions for me?

device pcm

in your kernel.. it should use the same chipset as the live! series (emu10k1) or close to it..

ok well I have not built my own kernal yet, but can I use your tutorial you made for the FreeBSD Mail server, just as a reference? Since this will be my 1st time trying it

Ok I recompiled my new kernal with the
device pcm
added to the Kernal Config.
Nothing is working still. Do I have to specify somewhere which soundcard I am using and do I need to download drivers for this from like opensound?

Goto the /dev directory

[code:1:4dec674c4e]./MAKEDEV snd0[/code:1:4dec674c4e]

You should be good to go.

You did reboot correct? Just wanted to make sure.What are you using to test the soundcard? Checkout Xmiker or Kmix, and check your volumes. If you have KDE installed, test with the soundserver in the control panel.
