Description Nikolaus Klepp 2015-02-08 14:32:33 UTC
The handbook says in "6.5.2. Configuring Xorg":

By default, Xorg uses HAL to autodetect keyboards and mice.

This is not true for FreeBSD 10.1, Xorg autoconfiguration works without HAL for keyboards and mice.

$ pkg info xorg-server
Options        :
         DEVD           : on
         HAL            : off
         SUID           : on
