Well that is true, but its a heck of a deal. If your total system hardware cost is 3-500 bucks (given that a lot of us run the various Unices on what amounts to cast-off systems, for personal use anyway) and the OS and software are free, a 50-100 Dollar (US) driver is pretty cheap.

If you are in a Corporate Environment then 100 Dollars is nothing, and sound probably not that important either.

If you are doing it for a hobby on a "Home" system, its just a part of the cost of the hobby, whether its fuel for a model plane or a faster processor or a custom driver, its all part of the cost of the hobby.

SND_VIA8233(4)						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 					    SND_VIA8233(4)

snd_via8233 -- VIA Technologies VT8233 bridge device driver SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: device sound device snd_via8233 Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): snd_via8233_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The snd_via8233 bridge driver allows the generic audio driver, sound(4), to attach to the VIA VT8233 audio devices. These audio chipsets are integrated in the southbridge on many VIA based motherboards. Runtime Configuration The following sysctl(8) variables are available in addition to those available to all sound(4) devices: dev.pcm.%d.polling Experimental polling mode, where the driver operates by querying the device state on each tick using callout(9). Polling is disabled by default. Do not enable it unless you are facing weird interrupt problems or if the device cannot generate interrupts at all. HARDWARE
The snd_via8233 driver supports the following audio chipsets: o VIA VT8233 o VIA VT8233A o VIA VT8233C o VIA VT8235 o VIA VT8237 o VIA VT8251 SEE ALSO
sound(4) HISTORY
The snd_via8233 device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.7. AUTHORS
This manual page was written by Joel Dahl <>. BUGS
The snd_via8233 driver does not support S/PDIF. There is partial support in the code, so implementing it should be fairly easy if the right hardware is available. BSD
