The handbook of FreeBSD says about Xorg: you *can* [but need not, I
understand] use HAL to autodetect keyboards and mice.

I have hald (and dbus) ports installed and running (both enabled="YES" in
But I suspect hald causing panic reboots.

Can one do without hald?
Oucommenting hald_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf and reboot will not be
sufficient I guess,
what else should be done, since it will affect X, in order not to loose
keyboard and mouse in
graphical envorinoment?
