Sorry, using 5.2 Release.
Well, it seems that was all needed, pciconf -lv
showed the onboard card to be a VT8233/33A AC97 Enhanced Audio Controller,
and after kldload snd_via8233.ko it's suddenly pcm1! Even plays mp3's
through mpg123 -a /dev/pcm1.0 :)
Just out of curiosity, does anyone know why kldload snd_driver.ko only
loaded the one driver?
Thanks a lot!
(And sorry for the cross postings before list!)
