FreeBSD uses GNATs for problem reports (PRs). You can find a description here:
Also the freebsd-current at freebsd.org mailing list is a good place to ask
those questions (perhaps it's the best to ask there first and file a PR
in coordination with the list).
I'd recommend to consider the following alternatives before taken any further
- Unless you need any of the new features in FreeBSD 5.x switch back to
FreeBSD 4.x (either 4.8 or 4.9 if you can wait approximately until 29 Sep
2003 (but installing 4.8 now and updating it to -STABLE or the next
release should work without a hassle))
- If you decide to stay with 5.x use 5.1 instead of 5.0 since it
contains lots of bug fixes. IMO 5.1 is the least version you should
use if you report any bugs on the 5.x branch, although you might even
want to upgrade to -CURRENT and see if your problems are fixed).
