It is often desirable to have multiple sources of sound that are able to play simultaneously.

The output will vary depending upon the sound card. Noteworthy troublemakers are esound and KDE ‘s sound support.

Audio CD s have specialized encodings which means that they should not be mounted using gsd 8. To confirm, run dmesg grep pcm. The number of virtual channels for a device cannot be changed while it is in use. The student may then make any corrections and follow-up edits in-place as requested by the mentor.

When not in use, they do not exist and will not appear in the output of ls 1. FreeBSD supports a wide variety of sound cards. Modern graphics cards often come with their own sound driver for use with HDMI. Check the supported audio devices list of the Hardware Notes to see if the card is supported and which FreeBSD driver it uses. Refer to pcm 4 for more information.

This will allow for the formatting of the section in place to make sure it looks as good as possible and uniform with the other handbook sections. In order to use the sound device, its device driver must be loaded.

This will set the hndbook channel to a default value of 50 when the pcm 4 module is loaded. If it is incorrect it must be updated and made correct. Contributed by Moses Moore. This is a metadriver which loads all of the most common sound drivers and can be used to speed up the search for the correct driver.


Contributed by Josef El-Rayes. The next section lists some common problems and their hanvbook. On the DragonFly website there are 2 versions of the handbook, an old and new version. Type fstat grep dsp to check if another application is holding the device open. This example loads the driver for a built-in audio chipset based on the Intel specification:.

The IRQ is set incorrectly. This task entails reviewing the entire handbook chapter in question and verifying that all information contained in that chapter is correct. While sound card mixer levels can be changed using mixer 8 or third-party applications and daemons, this is not a permanent solution.

If no pcm devices are listed, double-check that the correct device driver was loaded dragonfpy compiled into the kernel. If handbiok particular portion of the chapter cannot be tested by the student, they should make a note of this in the updated version of the document and link from new document to the old document in that particular spot, pointing out the possible solution or method in the old handbook.

This section is for users who prefer to statically compile in support for the sound card in a custom kernel. For this card, the following lines must dragofnly added to the kernel configuration file:.

In some cases, the IRQ or other settings may need to be changed to match the handblok. Contributed by Munish Chopra.

First, close any programs using the device, such as music players or sound daemons.

The easiest way is to load a kernel module for the sound card with kldload 8. All FreeBSD documents are available for download at https: After loading the required module or rebooting into the custom kernel, the sound card should be detected.

Content in the old version is not necessarily out of date, it just has not been verified as being up-to-date, which is necessary for it to be added to the new handbook. Next, add support for the sound card. The output looks something like this:. The line for this driver is:. This sound device is sometimes enumerated before the sound card meaning that the sound card will not be used as the default playback device.

Before beginning the configuration, determine the model of the sound card and the chip it uses. If it recommends a method or practice that is outdated, that section should be removed and descriptions of modern methods and practices should be added in their place.

Enhanced by Marc Fonvieille. Setting Up the Sound Card. This example allocates four virtual channels, which is a practical number for everyday use.

The default values for the different mixer channels are hardcoded in the source code of the pcm 4 driver. When using a custom kernel to provide sound support, make sure that the audio framework driver exists in the custom kernel configuration file:.

Yandbook the boot process, loader 8 reads this file and passes the settings to the kernel. Three sysctl 8 knobs are available for configuring virtual channels:.

To use the sound card as the default playback device, change hsd. To check if this is the case, run dmesg and look for pcm. To continue the example of the built-in audio chipset based on the Intel specification from the handboo, section, use the following line in the custom kernel configuration file:.
