By this time it should be already old news that /bin/sh has become the new default shell instead of /bin/csh. But perhaps more subtle is that this new version of Bourne Shell has expanded support for the formatting sequences supported by the PS1 special variable as can...
My starting point is: Installing FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE on Dell OptiPlex Micro (GPT+ZFS on NVMe SSD) and proceed similarly as I've done for Intel UHD Graphics 630 on FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE, but this time the problem is to make a good use of an Intel UHD Graphics 730 which...
My starting point is: Installing FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE on Dell Vostro (GPT+ZFS on SSD). Next I set to get X11 running on it as well so I perform the usual pkg install xorg and add user to the video group. But before launching X for the very first time it's probably...
After a successful installation of FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE on a Dell OptiPlex Micro (MMF) 7010 (GPT+ZFS on NVMe SSD) I felt encouraged to do the "same" on an older Dell Vostro 3470 of mine which was running a fully updated FreeBSD 13.2-RELEASE. The system uses UEFI...
The beginning of the story
I've got a new hardware, Dell OptiPlex Micro Form Factor 7010, on which I was willing to perform a "relatively minimal" :-/ FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE installation. After having successfully created & tested the "recovery media" following Dell recommendations...
Need help: I have just created a new jail 'ha' with 'iocage' on a new FreeBSD 14.0-REALEASE maschine (metal):
iocage create -r 14.0-RELEASE --name ha ip4_addr="em0|192.168.1.200/24"
Everything worked as expected.
Now I want to install some packages inside the jail. No chance:
root@ha:~ # pkg...
Hi Community, I need your help solving this issue.
I had lagg0 and other interfaces assigned in /etc/rc.conf as follows:
ifconfig_em0="ether 8c:70:5a:XX:XX:XX" ##MAC address of the wlan0
create_args_wlan0="regdomain FCC country XX"
This week I tried to upgrade to 14.0-RELEASE from 13.2p5 but I failed. I ran into an zfs error while running freebsd-update upgrade and merging all the config changes.
I have many datasets that are used as disks for vms.
The upgrade fails with the following error:
Why should kernel be corrupted as soon as I edit loader conf or restore backup via cp *conf in /etc/ and /usr/local/etc.
Once I do any of these, freebsd-version -kur reports 'unable to locate kernel'. Then I have to do fresh install again; custom build won't fix it and so is freebsd-update...
