My own configuration notes. Your mileage may vary : )
#How to install and configure K3b on FreeBSD 7.0
#To install the pre-compiled package (usually satisfactory) use the code
pkg_add -r k3b
# If the pre-compiled package is ill-suited for your system, you can try
compiling from source using the code below.
cd /usr/ports/sysutils/k3b && make install clean
# Next, we edit configuration files in order to establish the proper
settings and permissions
# Edit /boot/loader.conf to add the following:
# Modify devfs.conf with the following lines:
own cdrom root:operator
perm cdrom 0666
link cd0 cdwriter
own cderiter root:operator
perm cdwriter 0666
own pass0 root:operator
perm pass0 0666
own xpt0 root:operator
perm xpt0 0666
# Edit /etc/rc.conf to add the following:
#I am told the commands below are necessary on occasion. My system seems
to work fine without them, however.
chmod 4711 /usr/local/bin/cdrecord
chmod 4711 /usr/local/bin/cdrdao
