I wrote K3b how to
but you will need little bit of Serbian language to read it.
Actually probably you could follow article even if you do not speak
Serbian as the language is generic and there are only three important
steps you need to do.
Step 1 Editing your /boot/loader.conf file with
since FreeBSD is using atapicam device to write DVD
Step 2 Edit your /etc/devfs.conf with various permission. Most of those
are needed for a work station anyway
perm /dev/acd0 0666
perm /dev/cd0 0666
# Commonly used by many ports
link cd0 cdrom
link cd0 dvd
link cd0 rdvd
link acd0 cdrom
link acd0 dvd
link acd0 rdvd
# Misc other devices
perm cdrom 0666
perm dvd 0666
perm rdvd 0666
perm xpt0 0666
perm pass0 0666
Step 3 Edit your /etc/fstab file if you want to use K3b as a normal user
since the disk has to be mounted on the mount point which belong to you
[pedja@ /usr/home/Pedja]$ more /etc/fstab
#These are my options
/dev/cd0 /usr/home/Pedja/mnt/cdrom cd9660 rw, noauto 0 0
/dev/acd0 /usr/home/Pedja/mnt/cdrom cd9660 rw, noauto 0 0
You do not need HAL for things to work but is not going to heart.
make showinfo /usr/ports/sysutils/k3b
