I upgraded to 4-8 last week or so and things are running great.
[jason at beast]$ uname -a
FreeBSD beast 4.8-STABLE FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE #0: Fri Apr  4 13:18:18 EST

[jason at beast]$

I just plugged in my D-link webcam and did a "dmesg" to see if it was

what I get is the following:
[root at beast]# dmesg
NO=Permission denied
[root at beast]#

actually after starting this email, I now get..
[root at beast]# dmesg
: [2003/04/11 05:08:08, 0] nmbd/nmbd_packets.c:send_netbios_packet(172)
[root at beast]#

whats up with dmesg?

then I went back to /var/log/messages and I now see that the
"NO=Permission denied" seems to have come from

Apr 10 21:14:04 beast nmbd[8756]:   Packet send failed to
ERRNO=Permission denied
I know this is some samba error, but should dmesg be behaving this way?
