It is not compiled in by default - for license reasons. In this respect it is no different than the GPL-licensed kernel components which are also not compiled in by default. To use either you will have to either compile a custom kernel, or load the component as a module. I.e. the FreeBSD kernel is still just as free as it has always been. -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
