Dear folks,

On a new machine running AMD-64 XFCE custom by Manolis, I can't
determine which sound driver to use for the sound card:

grulla# kldload snd_driver
grulla# cat /dev/sndstat
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 64bit 2009061500/amd64)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <HDA VIA VT1708B_1 PCM #0 Analog> (play/rec) default
pcm1: <HDA VIA VT1708B_1 PCM #1 Analog> (play)
pcm2: <HDA VIA VT1708B_1 PCM #2 Digital> (play)
grulla# pciconf -l
