Quoting Simon Schubert <email@example.com> (Thu, 4 Jan 2007 13:47:04 -0800 (PST)):Say hello to a sound system update from FreeBSD. This includes the long awaited Intel High Definition Audio (HDA) a.k.a. Azalia support.You added the man pages for the envy and the emu10kx drivers, but not the drivers themself.
I didn't looked at the code, but I hope it is at least from December. In November Ariff committed low latency fixes. In December he improved the HDA stuff (works out of the box with more soundcards). Yesterday I added some emu10kx improvements and the author of the emu10kx driver is going to send some more improvements soon. So if the code is not as recent as at least the code FreeBSD got in December, I suggest to sync some more (there are some more HDA changes).
The code also contains some API extensions which sync with the OSS v4 drivers. All in all a good base of some very nice upcomming features.
If anyone is interested: http://wiki.FreeBSD.org/soundsystem for (a little bit) more. If someone has some improvement suggestions just tell me. If someone wants to help out on this page (I don't think there are objections to share the wiki page, we just have to make sure that we add dates to the entries and tell the people until which date the DFly code is synced with the FreeBSD code), tell me and I arrange access.
Cheers, and thanks again for the heads-up, -- Thomas E. Spanjaard firstname.lastname@example.org
