   Hello and thank you Daniel! All the things in FreeBSD are so easy and
   smooth? First I found that my /dev/apm was not configured. I've
   enabled it in rc.conf but same result. From internet I've found that I
   have to enable it in kernel, compiling support for apm or, at boot
   time, with "boot -c" I was able to enable it, but just for that
   session. After that, because I did not want at this time to compile
   the kernel, I put this line in /boot/kernel.conf en apm0 and
   everything went fine, and now I can really monitor how cool FreeBSD
   runs (this is not a joke). Thank you again. Cristian Salan >> Hello,
