Hey, I also had the same problem. The AWE 64 just doesn't even make noise!.
While its true that the manual has an example on set it up, it just
didn't work. I tried recompiling the kernel many times, even a couple of
"make world", both with FreeBSD 4.5 and 4.6.2 release.
I gave up as I don't really need the sound to enjoy the system, but I
think that there is probably an issue with the AWE64 and FreeBSD.
By the way, the card is on a ISA slot and works fine when running win2k.
