I just tried a "lkdload uscanner" on my ThinkPad running 5.4
kldload: can't load uscanner: File exists
In the USB section in /boot/loader.conf, everything was
set to NO. Which of these options should I switch to YES.
---This goes for my other FBSD servers too. I've never
used anything usb so I'll check my KERNEL config files too.
All my hardware is fairly standard. Intel, HP, whatever
ThinkPad has, and whatever's on the USB 2.0 m'board on my
just-shipped AMD system. I stick to the Keep It Simple Sir
philosophy, so if I need to buy a USB board I well. Meanwhile,
if you have any feedback about the /boot/loader.conf and
KERNEL config files, I'd like to hear them.
