Hi Everybody

I have a SONY Vaio PCG-FXA36 and have worked very well

FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE #0

Except with the sound card :-(

Sometimes it does work and others simply not.

When it doesn't dmesg shows me this:

pcm0: <VIA VT82C686A> port
0x10ff irq 5 at device 7.5 on pci0
via: codec busy
via: codec busy
via: codec busy
via: codec busy
via: codec busy
via: codec busy
pcm0: ac97 codec invalid or not present (id ==
device_probe_and_attach: pcm0 attach returned 6

And KDE sends me this message:
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or
The sound server will continue, using the null output

Attached is dmesg when everything is OK.

Thanks for your time and your sugestions.
