The current versions of FreeBSD are 8.3 and 9.0

The installation notes on the [URL="http://wiki.zmanda.com/index.php/Installation/OS_Specific_Notes/Installing_Amanda_on_FreeBSD"]wiki[/URL] haven't been updated in years and are probably no longer relevant.

Some specific questions:
- Man pages list wrong locations. (e.g. [URL="http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=amserverconfig&sektion=8&apropos=0&m anpath=FreeBSD+9.0-RELEASE+and+Ports"]amserverconfig(8)[/URL] lists /var/lib/amanda and /etc/amanda. These directories don't exist.)
- Permissions. How can you give the amanda user permissions to operate a tape changer?
- Is there an rc script required?
