I recently installed openBSD 3.0 on my PC system. All works well except
for the soundcard. The kernel seems to detect it fine *see dmesg below*
but virtually no apps work with it. I'll briefly detail two things I
have done which may help understand the problem.
mpg321 does not work properly. Neither does play when trying to play wav
files. I get some sort of sound coming out but it is like an old vinyl
record "phut phut" sounds every second or so with very low volume.
esd upon startup with startup chimes on actually seems to work though
the chimes don't stop. I'm not familiar with how esd normally works with
these startup chimes so I don't know if this is normal behavior or not.
Either way it will play these nice tones quite well.
My feeling *based on nothing* is that there is a problem with sampling
rate and playback rates. This is because the card is not being operated
correctly by the kernel even if the kernel accurately detects it.
Anyway any help or thoughts would be appreciated.
