RE[5]: some corrections

Because you are not PC-BSD developer- that's why.

Nice attitude there ;) I've been a PC-BSD user and a contributor (PBIs) - time doesn't allow me to continue, but I'm very much a fan of the project (see my list of recommended articles here on osnews).

only solution was to enable that damn HALD (don't work as advertised because of FreeBSD USB bugs).

And you call yourself a developer? Perhaps you should have taken a look at the Makefile of kdebase - HALd support is not only optional, but off by default. You could easily avoid using HALd and continue to use your own scripts. But therein lies the dilemma: actually, switching to HALd means more testing, and more contributions... Oh wait... Instead of working with FreeBSD to fix the problems, you keep bitching about FreeBSD USB bugs, HALd disaster, etc. Have you tried the new, GIANT-less usb stack of HSP? Did you try to contact him, offering some testing/asking for help (realeasing a more up to date driver for 6.x)?

I know PC-BSD developers, and the tremendous work they put into polishing this distribution. You don't help their reputation with your attitude, or your display of ignorance.
