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.

Thanks for posting this Predrag.

I have had unsolvable (so far) problems with playing both dvd movies and cd audio. MPlayer will play VOBs but no menus, no navigation which can make watching pretty much impossible sometimes. I had actually given up on trying to get these two features to work and have installed a new linux (to me), Kubuntu. On this platform, there are no problems with DVD movies, audio cd, streamed audio, even flash. I can watch youtube too. This has not been the case on FreeBSD. I have tried installing FreeBSD 6.2 via three different versions, FreeBSD, DesktopBSD and PCBSD, and asked questions on their mailing lists.
My Dear Friend,

You will have to wait for a very long time then since all of the above except Flash (which Adobe does release for Linux but not for FreeBSD) works flawlessly on FreeBSD including watching YouTube (just use youtube-dl to snap the video and play with VLC). There are even alternative solutions for the Flash unless you want to play video games full of Flash!

The only reason they didn't work for you is that you didn't know how to set up those features.

Never the less if you fell more comfortably with Kubuntu stick with it. FreeBSD is not platform for everything and everyone. Personally, I find myself using more and more OpenBSD. So you have to use OS you are comfortable with and has a features you most desire (in my case enhanced security).


But I do like many things about BSD and would like to be able to move to it completely when I can have these features working correctly, so I will try your suggestions above and see what happens.
