#84 FreeBSD: system changes needed to work well

On FreeBSD, one of the modules the CVS Monitor uses,
Proc::ProcessTable, requires read access to /dev/kmem.
By default, this device has the following permissions:

crw-r----- 1 root kmem 245, 1 Dec 5 15:20 /dev/
kmem

To unbreak things, one have to allow the apache user
(www by default) to read from that device. Reasonable
way is to add www user to kmem group:

ed /etc/group
/^kmem:/s/$/,www/
w
q

Good luck!
