You may also simply remove /dev/io as a quick work-around if you're
not running an X server or some other specialized utility which
requires access to the I/O instructions.
---- System Update Information:
o The appletalk stack was broken in 2.2.5.
Fix: If you plan to run appletalk, you should apply the following patch:
o The line printer spooler lpd will, when sending jobs to remote
printers, kill the child process sending to the remote after the
timeout specified in the `ct' capability (2 minutes by default).
Fix: Please upgrade the lpd subsystem to 2.2-stable. As a workaround,
increase the `ct' capability to an unreasonably large number of
seconds (like 3600).

Fix: Update to the 2.2-stable version of the kernel or apply the
patch found in ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/updates/2.2.5-RELEASE/ipfw.diff.gz
