I have some questions:
1) How do I enable sound? I have a Realtek AC'97. In Pref. -> Media -> Audio settings it says for everything.
2) Can I watch Youtube videos on Haiku?
1)restart media services with the clickybutton in PREFERENCES>Media. It should list the AC97 hardware. If not go grab a driver from the haikuware site.
2) I think BeZilla is working with Haiku now:
Gives a link to the BeZilla browser.
Thank you for bringing Preferences -> Media to my attention.
From there, I can also add a volume control to the Desktop Applets.
Why on Earth can I not do that from Desktop Applets?
Well, at least I now know that Haiku has a volume control, and it works! :-)
if you have not found it already, try this-once you've installed the volume control in the deskbar from media prefs, turn replicants on ('show replicants' in the deskbar menu), click on the deskbar volume control, grab the replicant handle in the lower right and drag the volume control onto the desktop, where it will live until you delete the replicant.
A volume control directly on the wallpaper.
Gnash (flash plugin) is available for Haiku but it no longer seems to work with Youtube. You will have to wait for an update to Gnash.
Sound is enabled if your hardware is supported by a driver and that audio driver loads. Not sure what you mean by "it says for everything". Screenshot is always nice to show your issue. :-)
Or maybe you can explain it better if you are unable to fix it.

Now I understand Ken. You have no driver loading for audio. Do these and give the output here.
In terminal, type:
If /dev/audio is empty then you have no driver loading.
Also, from terminal give device info for your audio card (copy the 3 lines for audio device only to keep it short):
if no driver /dev/audio - you can install opensound. In terminal type:
installoptionalpackage -a opensound
if you already have an audio driver listed then you need to remove it first before installing opensound ( to avoid driver conflict ).
