I've been trying to get the Soundcard in my Compaq Armada 1750 working.
Has anyone yet made it? I've compiled
device    pcm
device    sbc
into the kernel, but still the card does not get recognised.
Maybe someone could help out!

1. FreeBSD 5.0 boot problems on Compaq Armada 1750

Hi there.

I'm trying to get FreeBSD 5.0 to run on my older Compaq Armada 1750 laptop,
but it refuses to boot. When I boot and it gets to mounting the root image,
it freezes up. It boots fine with FreeBSD 4.3, but It dosen't support the
PCMCIA controller located in the machine, thus no network is awailable on
that version.

Slackware Linux 8.0 works fine, but I'd rather use FreeBSD because of the
stability, and certain security issues(And the posibility to make a minimal
installation and add/compile everything yourself, without having to use

Also, I have an old Digital ventures 5133 I've tried to install FreeBSD 5.0,
but it can't use the diskcontroller, it refuses to do so. Linux(Redhat 6.2)
also works quite fine on this machine.

Does anyone have a clue to what I could do to get FreeBSD on my machine, or
am I stuck on Windows/Linux on this hardware?

I didn't think that FreeBSD would be so picky about hardware, but I guess it
is :-(
