Greetings!

I'm trying to get my ancient, but not arthritic system to write sound to the
audio outputs.

$ cat /dev/sndstat
Installed devices:
pcm0: <Realtek ALC887 (Rear Analog)> (play/rec) default
pcm1: <Realtek ALC887 (Front Analog)> (play/rec)
pcm2: <Realtek ALC887 (Rear Digital)> (play)
pcm3: <Realtek ALC887 (Onboard Digital)> (play)
pcm4: <Intel Panther Point (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)

The above makes me think that I need to go order a soundcard, as the ALC887
device is no longer in the kernel device options.

Comments are invited.

It literally says right there that the "rear analog" outputs connected
to the ALC887 are the default audio device, so I don't understand
what you are asking.

It's actually chips on the motherboard, but that doesn't obviously translate
to stuff in /dev.

I suspect it's one or moreof these, that /dev/dsp0* is the ALC887 and
/dev/dsp1* is the Panther point:
:!ls /dev/dsp*
/dev/dsp0.0 /dev/dsp0.2 /dev/dsp1.0 /dev/dsp3.0
/dev/dsp0.1 /dev/dsp0.3 /dev/dsp2.0 /dev/dsp4.0

Time to experiment. It would be nice if there were a way to connect the
/dev/* entries with the stuff in `dmesg`, but that's not so clear:
(from dmesg.boot):
hdacc0: <Realtek ALC887 HDA CODEC> at cad 0 on hdac0
hdaa0: <Realtek ALC887 Audio Function Group> at nid 1 on hdacc0
pcm0: <Realtek ALC887 (Rear Analog)> at nid 20 and 24,26 on hdaa0
pcm1: <Realtek ALC887 (Front Analog)> at nid 27 and 25 on hdaa0
pcm2: <Realtek ALC887 (Rear Digital)> at nid 30 on hdaa0
pcm3: <Realtek ALC887 (Onboard Digital)> at nid 17 on hdaa0
hdacc1: <Intel Panther Point HDA CODEC> at cad 3 on hdac0
hdaa1: <Intel Panther Point Audio Function Group> at nid 1 on hdacc1
pcm4: <Intel Panther Point (HDMI/DP 8ch)> at nid 7 on hdaa1

The /dev entries don't contain any /dev/hda* or /dev/pcm* devices, though:
$ ls -d /dev/*
/dev/acpi /dev/iic1 /dev/reroot
/dev/ada0 /dev/iic10 /dev/sequencer0

This isn't my first rodeo, as I started with FreeBSD 3.something, way back
when that was current, and I've been using it at work and at home since then.
But if there is a way to conceptually link the /dev/dsp* entries to the ALC887
and Panther Point lines in dmesg.boot, I'm sure not seeing it.

pcm<n> as listed in dmesg and /dev/sndstat corresponds to /dev/dsp<n>.
/dev/dsp corresponds to the default device.
See sound(4) for additional details.
