This requires HAL-support with KDE and the KDE MEdia Manager enabled in the system services. It's fragile to get working and often requires extensive knowledge of HAL, dbus and policykit. This is where PC-BSD can be seen as SuSE for linux, as it has configured all these things to work out of the box, that normally a FreeBSD system administrator would set up. Alternatively, one can use the desktopbsd-tools from the ports to add some GUI system tray apps, among which a removable media manager. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
