Sorry, I should have written more about my PC.
It has a A7V8X mainboard with an AC97 sound chip
on it (which works under Windows). It doesn't
work under OpenBSD 3.2 nor -current and I have
to diable auvia in the boot> editor because the
PC hangs otherwise.
But my question is actually not about the problems
with that sound chip, because I've disabled it anyway.
My question is if anyone knows what does it mean,
when KDE says "/dev/sound - device not configured"?
Because I do have /dev/sound and I thought it is
coming from the speaker in my kernel -
BTW, if someone of developers wants to fix the
Broadcom BMC 4401 or AC97 drivers on my A7V8X,
I'll gladly provide access with a serial console
and will reboot the PC for you.
