You have not done your homework.
Probably the following would be enough
[pedja@ /usr/home/Pedja]$ more /boot/loader.conf
You also need to add the following into your /etc/devfs.conf file
# Allow members of the group operator to mount CD-ROMs.
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
I am not sure if you need HAL as mine is ON on this computer on
which K3b works flawlessly. You will have to read handbook and
the following is useful http://www.freebsd.org/gnome/.
BTW: I really gets annoyed when people say by the way it works in Linux,
Windows, Solaris or whatever.
What is that suppose to mean?
