i sent my t30 to ibm to replace a not working ram slot and i got it back
in less then 48 hrs. pretty good. except the /dev/dsp is missing.
i don't see any cards in the dmesg but i know that the audio card is
"SoundBlaster compatible". my system is 5.4 and according to the handbook
devfs should figure it out - i haven't had to do this before...
a have the audio enabled in the kernel... pcm...
any ideas why is the dsp missing? i think they did bios upgrade - is that
what screwed it up?
A dmesg would be helpful as would kldstat and kernel config.
The obvious question is whether your kernel includes 'device sound' and
'device snd_ich' or kldstat shows them loaded. You might want to do a
'pciconf -lv' and look for what device is in class 'multimedia' and
subclass 'audio'. You may also need drivers for the System Management
Not really sure of exactly which are needed.
