Default linux-enemyterritory and no sound?

Ive had this problem for a while and have found plenty of fixes for linux machines but havent been able to get it working on my FreeBSD machine. I had this working just find back on freebsd 6.0 but it became a problem for me when I upgraded to 6.1 and is still a problem now that ive upgraded to 7. Im not sure how to going about tracking down the problem. Ive been using freebsd for quite some time but am still pretty much green at trouble shooting major issues. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you set hw.snd.compat_linux_mmap to 1? i.e.

# sysctl hw.snd.compat_linux_mmap=1

Here is what I have... Im posting it because I dont understand it fully.

Code:
# sysctl -a |grep linux
<118> linux
<118> linux
<118> linux
<118> linux
<118> linux
<118> linux
hw.snd.compat_linux_mmap: 0
compat.linux.oss_version: 198144
compat.linux.osrelease: 2.4.2
compat.linux.osname: Linux
so i'll change the hw.snd.compat_linux_mmap: 0 to a : 1 and see if it helps? I cant find much information on this setting so out of curiosity what does it change?

Yes.

Linux mmap() behaviour is broken in some subtle way, I don't remember exactly what the issue is ... It's on the FreeBSD mail list somewhere, current@ IIRC.
Most apps work fine anyway, but the quake3 engine (And some other apps) expect this broken behaviour ... Setting this sysctl to 1 emulates the broken mmap() behaviour and allows these applications to work.

There should really be a pkg-message for this ...

Thanks. That appeared to work but it seems that I have bigger fish to fry now. The game play was terrible and very choppy. Thats when i realized that my nvidia driver isnt working properly. This will be a question i'll post in to the main forum.

Thanks again.
