Sound and resolution problems in GhostBSD 20.03

Post by Ericrj »

There is no sound for me in GhostBSD 20.03 even if I plug in headphones, my computer is a Dell OptiPlex 960(256 MB VRAM, 2GB RAM, 2.93GHz), my monitor resolution is 1366 x 768 and yet in GhostBSD the highest resolution I can set is 1024 x 768, the monitor is a ViewSonic VA1913wm.

Any help is appreciated. :)

Thank you for the help, I have run the commands and here are the results:

Installed devices:
pcm0: <Analog Devices AD1984A (Analog)> (play/rec) default
pcm1: <Analog Devices AD1984A (Analog)> (play/rec)
No devices installed from userspace.

hw.snd.default_unit: 0

You have 2 sound cards, try using the other, as root run the next command

Code: Select all

sysctl hw.snd.default_unit=1
What do you do to test the sound?
