CDBakeOven on FreeBSD

CDBakeOver is a CD/DVD burning tool that will work under KDE and FreeBSD.  It is quite good and works similar to Nero. FreeBSD’s security by default will not allow CDBakeOver to work under a regular user account. The user has to open the device directly and FreeBSD (as it should) will not allow a regular user to open a device directly. Linux does.. go figure!

Install the CDBakeOven port

# cd /usr/ports/sysutils/cdbakeoven
# make
# make install
# make clean

In order to allow CDBakeOven to work from a regular user account we will need to loosen the security on some devices.
Add the following to /etc/devfs.conf

perm     pass0   0660
perm     cd0     0660
perm     acd0    0660
perm     acd0    cdrom

Add the device driver

# echo atapicam_load=\"YES\" >> /boot/loader.conf
