Successfully installed OpenBSD 4.0 on Sony PCG-505TR laptop.

Items required

The procedure starts by using the OpenBSD CD, but completes the install via FTP. This is because I couldn't get my system to recognize the CD as an installation source, although it booted from the CD just fine.


After installation, I had to boot with pcibios disabled, as explained above. I didn't disable pciide this time though. I configured X with Xorg -configure and moved the resultant generated file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. The following work just fine (will add more later):
  • apm
  • audio
  • X
  • Port Extender
