No sound at all (Lenovo thinkcenter M73)

Post by babinio74 »

a few days ago i decided to try BSD for the first time in my life and im really excited about the performance and stability of the system (GhostBSD) :D :D

im trying to fix the absence of sound. Ive been searching around to find a solution but my luck of BSD system knowledge has prevented me to find the solution.

When i enter # cat /dev/sndstat i have the following result

Installed devices:
pcm0: <Intel Haswell (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)
pcm1: <Realtek ALC283 (Front Analog)> (play/rec)
pcm2: <Realtek ALC283 (Rear Analog Mic)> (rec) default
No devices installed from userspace.

im changing the default device by giving

#sysctl.hw.snd.default_unit=1 , then i reboot but still i have no sound

can you help me by giving me instructions step by step?

Thank you in Advance

Add "hw.snd.default_unit=1" in /etc/sysctl.conf and reboot.
