Default Asus P5Q-E support in FreeBSD 7.1-BETA (amd64)

Hello, I bought a new computer, the specs are:
Asus P5Q-E board, Core 2 Duo 8400, 4GB Corsair RAM.

I've installed FreeBSD 7.1-BETA (amd64) on it. The bios setting for SATA drives was tested with IDE/AHCI with same results.

1)
The Marvell 88SE6121 controller is introduced like this during boot:

Code:
atapci0: <Marvell ATA controller> port 0xdc00-0xdc07,0xd880-0xd883,0xd800-0xd807,0xd480-0xd483,0xd400-0xd40f mem 0xfeaffc00-0xfeafffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci3
atapci0: [ITHREAD]
However, the DVDRW or PATA disk connected to the ATA controller is not recognized. Just a tip, but it seems that support for this controller is not yet implemented ? Anybody got it working on some other branch ?

2)
The audio is an ADI AD2000B HDA, I've loaded the snd_hda module

Code:
FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 64bit 2007061600/amd64)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <Intel (Unknown) High Definition Audio Controller> at memory 0xf9ff8000 irq 22 kld snd_hda [20080420_0052] [MPSAFE] (1p:2v/1r:1v channels duplex default)
The sound works ok, it's just quiet

Code:
> mixer
Mixer vol      is currently set to  90:90
Mixer pcm      is currently set to  90:90
Mixer speaker  is currently set to  90:90
Mixer line     is currently set to  75:75
Mixer mic      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer cd       is currently set to  75:75
Mixer rec      is currently set to   0:0
Recording source: mic
Any ideas ?

3)
The computer boots nicely, mounts disks, starts local daemons until it comes to

Code:
Configuring syscons: keyrate blanktime.
Then there is a 30 (or so) second pause and:

Code:
Starting cron.
...
After all is done I can normally log in. So the question is the small delay.

My /etc/rc.conf is:
Code:
defaultrouter="10.1.1.1"
hostname="bsdlover"
ifconfig_msk0="inet 10.1.1.100 netmask 255.255.255.0"
keyrate="fast"
Thanks you very much.

And what happens if you #comment out the "keyrate" line of your rc.conf?

Thanks Weaseal for the tip, but it makes no change.

I own a boards with the same Marvell chip. The only one who seems to work on a driver wrote this: http://butcher.heavennet.ru/patches/...ell/README.txt
I removed all pata drives

There are some BIOS settings related to this, I don't remember them out of the top of my head ...

Try running the commands from /etc/rc.d/syscons manually, what happens if you do?
