I've been on the question list for some time, and I have noticed
that many people do not know how to get sound support up and
running in FreeBSD 5.X. I know that re-compiling the kernel is easy
enough, but there are still people not willing to do so, as I have
noticed on the list. Therefor I thought it might be an idea to put
sound support in the GENERIC kernel configuration, so that newbies
will no longer find themselves stuck with that.
I think I've read more than one time about problems fitting the
installation on the 1.44M floppies.
Definitely a bikeshed discussion but adding to the documentation
regarding kldload or a knob in sysinstall to turn on all sound
modules is preferable to adding to the kernel.
