Hello lists,

I installed PC-BSD 7.1 RC1(x86 version) to Lenovo ThinkPad T61.
I got 4 errors.  Report about it.

Installation note:
* This T61 with "nVidia Quadro NVS 140M" graphic chip.(1440x900)
* PC-BSD installed to external disk storage via USB(/dev/da0).
* Installed PC-BSD Japanese version.
  (Note for developer: Japanese translation finished for 7.1)


	Error #1/4:
nvidia-180.37 driver not worked after "Display Settings".
But after system reboot, driver worked fine.

Note:
  nvidia-173.14.17 driver worked fine in any case.
  nvidia-96.43.11 driver not worked(maybe, too old version).


	Error(or specification?) #2/4:
PC-BSD's installer goes black-out by screen saver.  I feel
confused sometimes.  

I hope disable screen saver in automatically.  It is easy,
execute 'xset s off' by installer.
But, nothing /usr/local/bin/xset in installer.  Need bring
xset(1) from ports/x11/xset.


	Error #3/4:
Plasma's some operations not worked with Japanese language
environment(Didn't appear this bug with English environment).

This bug appear with after PC-BSD 7.0.
(Sorry I forget report to list)

After left-button-click on right-top corner:
	"Add widgets..."
	"Appearance Settings"
After right-button-click on desktop:
	"Run Command..."
	"Add widgets..."
	"Appearance Settings"


	Error #4/4:
Cannot play sound with snd_hda(4).
How to fix sound for T61: Comment-out these line in /etc/sysctl.conf

# Autodetect the right sound card
hw.snd.default_auto=1
	|
	V
# Autodetect the right sound card
#hw.snd.default_auto=1

Technical note for sound fix:

	0th codec found in FreeBSD.  But 1st codec unknown.
	Maybe, cannot use 1st codec.

	PC-BSD use 0th codec and can play sound.
