Hi, Ive already disabled usbd_enable=no in /etc/rc.conf
But still I get theses root 399 0.0 0.0 0 12 ?? DL Sat04PM 0:00.03 (usb0) root 400 0.0 0.0 0 12 ?? DL Sat04PM 0:00.00 (usbtask) And yes I ran make install, I know it worked because I also compiled in quota support which is now working and wasn't previously. I am a 5year slackware linux user just moved over to FreeBSD so im used to the linux kernel, that's why its confused me a little. FreeBSD is looking great tho.. :) But yeh wondering how I get rid of them 2 processes.

You mean that the program usbd is running. This is a userland program that detects new USB devices and starts some predefined sequence of commands when a certain device enters the system. You can turn it off by adding usbd_enable="NO" to /etc/rc.conf. > > /boot/kernel shows that usb.ko is there. > > I don't understand why its included which I commented it out There's a difference between 'compiling something into the kernel' and using a kernel module. usb.ko is a kernel loadable module - a module that you can load with kldload if you need it. It's not compiled into the kernel. When you had 'device usb' in your kernel, usb would be compiled into the kernel and you'd never need to load the kernel loadable module for it. Now, you've removed usb from your kernel configuration file, so usb support is not in your kernel. Should you need it later, you can always load the module. If the module is not loaded, it doesn't take up any resources (except for the hard drive space it uses), so it shouldn't bother you. If you really don't want to compile any modules at all when building your kernel (for example, to save time when building a kernel), add NO_MODULES=true to /etc/make.conf.
