4 When booting from CDRom, the USB subsystem is not entirely activated
5 by the default boot, and while the primary USB and OHCI drivers are
6 loaded, the EHCI driver is not loaded and usbd is not started. This
7 is because USB is always a moving target and we want to ensure that
8 the CD actually boots.

10 To finish activating USB do the following at the root prompt:
11
12 kldload ehci.ko
13 rcforce usbd
14
15 If you have a lot of UMASS storage devices /dev may not have device
16 entries for all of them. DragonFly uses a pseudo SCSI layer to access
17 USB mass storage devices so if /dev/daX does not exist you can create
18 it with MAKEDEV:
19
20 cd /dev
21 ./MAKEDEV da4 da5
22
23 To enable USBD after installing on a hard disk, simply set
24 usbd_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf.
