The above example will add user <systemitem class="username">lisa</systemitem> to the group <systemitem class="groupname">wheel</systemitem>.
I made a mistake in <filename>rc.conf</filename>, or another startup file, and now I cannot edit it because the file system is read-only. What should I do?
Restart the system using <userinput>boot -s</userinput> at the loader prompt to enter single-user mode. When prompted for a shell pathname, press <keycap>Enter</keycap> and run <command>mount -urw /</command> to re-mount the root file system in read/write mode. You may also need to run <command>mount -a -t ufs</command> to mount the file system where your favorite editor is defined. If that editor is on a network file system, either configure the network manually before mounting the network file systems, or use an editor which resides on a local file system, such as <citerefentry><refentrytitle>ed</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>.
In order to use a full screen editor such as <citerefentry><refentrytitle>vi</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> or <citerefentry vendor="ports"><refentrytitle>emacs</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>, run <command>export TERM=xterm</command> so that these editors can load the correct data from the <citerefentry><refentrytitle>termcap</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry> database.
After performing these steps, edit <filename>/etc/rc.conf</filename> to fix the syntax error. The error message displayed immediately after the kernel boot messages should indicate the number of the line in the file which is at fault.
Why am I having trouble setting up my printer?
See the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/printing.html">Handbook entry on printing</link> for troubleshooting tips.
How can I correct the keyboard mappings for my system?
Refer to the Handbook section on <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/using-localization.html">using localization</link>, specifically the section on <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/using-localization.html#setting-console">console setup</link>.
Why can I not get user quotas to work properly?
It is possible that the kernel is not configured to use quotas. In this case, add the following line to the kernel configuration file and recompile the kernel:
options QUOTA
Refer to the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/quotas.html">Handbook entry on quotas</link> for full details.
Do not turn on quotas on <filename>/</filename>.
Put the quota file on the file system that the quotas are to be enforced on:

Does FreeBSD support System V IPC primitives?
Yes, FreeBSD supports System V-style IPC, including shared memory, messages and semaphores, in the <filename>GENERIC</filename> kernel. With a custom kernel, support may be loaded with the <filename>sysvshm.ko</filename>, <filename>sysvsem.ko</filename> and <filename>sysvmsg.ko</filename> kernel modules, or enabled in the custom kernel by adding the following lines to the kernel configuration file:
options SYSVSHM # enable shared memory
options SYSVSEM # enable for semaphores
options SYSVMSG # enable for messaging
Recompile and install the kernel.
What other mail-server software can I use instead of <application>Sendmail</application>?
The <link xlink:href=""><application>Sendmail</application></link> server is the default mail-server software for FreeBSD, but it can be replaced with another MTA installed from the Ports Collection. Available ports include <package>mail/exim</package>, <package>mail/postfix</package>, and <package>mail/qmail</package>. Search the mailing lists for discussions regarding the advantages and disadvantages of the available MTAs.
I have forgotten the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> password! What do I do?
Do not panic! Restart the system, type <userinput>boot -s</userinput> at the <literal>Boot:</literal> prompt to enter single-user mode. At the question about the shell to use, hit <keycap>Enter</keycap> which will display a <prompt>#</prompt> prompt. Enter <command>mount -urw /</command> to remount the root file system read/write, then run <command>mount -a</command> to remount all the file systems. Run <command>passwd root</command> to change the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> password then run <citerefentry><refentrytitle>exit</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> to continue booting.
If you are still prompted to give the <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> password when entering the single-user mode, it means that the console has been marked as <literal>insecure</literal> in <filename>/etc/ttys</filename>. In this case, it will be required to boot from a FreeBSD installation disk, choose the <guimenuitem>Live CD</guimenuitem> or <guimenuitem>Shell</guimenuitem> at the beginning of the install process and issue the commands mentioned above. Mount the specific partition in this case and then chroot to it. For example, replace <command>mount -urw /</command> with <command>mount /dev/ada0p1 /mnt; chroot /mnt</command> for a system on <replaceable>ada0p1</replaceable>.
