Sound worked under 5.1, but not under a fresh install with 5.2 on my Toshiba 4100XDVD.

As before, I have
device pcm


Here is the relevant output from dmesg:

pcm0: <ESS Technology Maestro-2E> port 0xfc00-0xfcff irq 11 at device 12.0 on pci0
pcm0: agg_rdcodec() RW_DONE timed out.
pcm0: agg_rdcodec() PROGLESS timed out.
pcm0: agg_rdcodec() RW_DONE timed out.
pcm0: agg_wrcodec() PROGLESS timed out.

This is the contents of /dev/sndstat

FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <ESS Technology Maestro-2E> at I/O port 0xfc00 irq 11 (4p/0r/0v channels duplex default)

Trying kldload snd_maestro

kldload: can't load snd_maestro: File exists

xmms equalizer shows a signal on wavs or steaming media, but there is no sound.

I feel I'm missing something obvious, but I'm still missing it. Can anyone help?

This might be a stupid question, but did you compile the kernel that has the "device pcm" in it?

Thankfully, there is no such thing as a stupid question. :)

Yes, I not only have
device pcm
in my kernel config, I actually ran
make buildkernel and
make installkernel

Just because I wondered the same thing, I did it twice.
