Sony PCG-R505DL success running 5.1-release



I'm new to posting to the lists but since I had a hard time finding
information on the Sony PCG-R505DL here what I did to get it working.

The following are for 5.1-release only. I know they have changed for
5.2-rc2 and I will update my website http://my.fit.edu/~rresnick/ when I
get 5.2 installed.

The following items get the computer running, smoothly except that X
crashes when you restart the X Server and corrupts the display. The only
solution I found is to restart the machine.

To get sound to work you need to run the following every time the
machine starts up.
pciconf -w -b pci0:31:0 0x61 9 

You need to insert the following in /boot/loader.conf 

# Sound Stuff 
snd_pcm_load="YES" 
snd_driver_load="YES" 

# PCMCIA Stuff 
hw.pci.allow_unsupported_io_range="1" 

#DVD Stuff 
hw.ata.atapi_dma="1" 
hw.ata.ata_dma="1" 

You need to insert the following in /etc/sysctr.conf 

#For DVD and KDE Sound 
kern.ipc.shmmax=67108864 
kern.ipc.shmall=32768 
hw.snd.pcm0.vchans=4 
hw.snd.maxautovchans=4
