Newbie to NetBSD here, so please excuse the somewhat novice questions.
I've installed Xfce4 and currently installing KDE 4. I am sure the sound card is detected by NetBSD, but gstreamer fails to recognize it.
This is the message that comes up when I try to access the mixer panel in Xfce.
GStreamer was unable to detect any sound devices. Some sound system specific GStreamer packages may be missing. It may also be a permissions problem.
I am not sure how to access the sound device. There is /dev/audio, /dev/mixer.
