        System      : OpenBSD 3.9
        Architecture: OpenBSD.i386
        Machine     : i386
>Description:
        Apparently Dell made (or got Creative Labs to make) an OEM version of
        the Sound Blaster Live! card. The emu driver thinks it's supported, it
        isn't. Looking at the dmesg it would seem OpenBSD is capable of telling
        it apart from other cards so I'm assuming it's possible to prevent emu
        from "claiming" the card.

It's been pointed out to me that I forgot to mention exactly what
"doesn't work"; sorry about that. The problem is that attempting to use
any program to play sound results in said program freezing. For example
mplayer freezes when trying to (i assume) initialise sound, cat'ing a
file onto /dev/audio has the same effect.

This problem has been discussed in the past in this thread:
