SND_FM801(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		  SND_FM801(4)

NAME
     snd_fm801 -- Forte	Media FM801 bridge device driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device sound
	   device snd_fm801

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   snd_fm801_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The snd_fm801 bridge driver allows	the generic audio driver, sound(4), to
     attach audio devices based	on the Forte Media FM801 chipset.  This	is a
     common chipset found in various parts used	by OEM manufacturers.

HARDWARE
     The snd_fm801 driver supports audio devices based on the following
     chipset:

     +o	 Forte Media FM801

SEE ALSO
     sound(4)

HISTORY
     The snd_fm801 device driver first appeared	in FreeBSD 4.2.

AUTHORS
     This manual page was written by Joel Dahl <joel@FreeBSD.org>.

BUGS
     The Forte Media FM801 chipset is a	sort of	PCI bridge, not	an actual
     sound controller, making it possible to have soundless support.  One
     problem is	that both chipsets, with and without sound support, use	the
     same PCI ID.  This	makes it impossible to determine which one is
     installed.
