Sound works

I’ve got sound working on my FreeBSD box. Finally. I tracked it down to a conflict between the onboard card and the sound card from my old HP Pavilion. I thought the card was a Soundblaster Live! But it turned out to be some wierd (unsupported) sound-modem combo card called Chameleon. I read that it’s a crappy card, so I decided to go with my onboard card. Recompiled the kernel and now it works fine… Still having network issues… I can talk to the other computers on the LAN… My WinXP box is the gateway and the FreeBSD box recognizes it… but it can’t talk to anything outside… =|

Productive… Sort of…

I was sort of productive… I came up with an algorithm for Lab 8. Then after reinstalling FreeBSD like 10 million times (I hate those damned Write Transfer errors) I have finally got it set up… sort of… The sound doesn’t work. I can’t hear anything. I’ve got the box talking to my WinXP box, but I can’t use the ICS on the WinXP to talk to the rest of the world. I’ve got the XP box set up as a gateway, but there still seem to be issues. Through all of this madness, I learnt quite a bit about creating device drivers, recompiling the kernel and editing rc.conf… I like FreeBSD…
