I'm Assembly programmer for both Intel's x86 and AMD64 architectures, been programming for these architecture for more than 10 years in non-UNIX-like operating systems; to be more precise: Windows NT based operating systems.
I was able to find the numeric kernel services...

Hi dear all,
I’m running FreeBSD 12.1 Live CD on a laptop equiped with an Intel AC 8260 wireless NIC, but ifconfig does not list it. From the dmesg I foud following messages:
iwm0: <Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 8260> mem 0xf1400000 – 0xf1401fff at device 0.0 on pci2

It was a profound surprise to me when I found out that MSI (current and past 2-3 generations) motherboards no long support booting from a PCIe HDD. For at least 15 years I have been using various MSI motherboards with many different PCIe controlled hard drives. My last MB, 990XA-GD55, had 2...
The system is a Supermicro H8QG6 mobo, fitted with a single Opteron 6174, with 32 Gigs of RAM. The same system is running 11.x, with zero problems, for a couple of months.
FreeBSD 12 install media freezes (the pipe stops rotating) on this screen

I'm a basic FreeBSD user, I'm learning. My problem is that I set a good date and time when installing the system after disabling and enabling Virtualbox (where FreeBSD was installed). Time changed by +2 hours and the date is in 2018-09-17 format and I would like to 17.09. 2018 07:21...
I'm confused with the way TrueOS is going so I'm thinking of migration to pure FreeBSD but I'm not very experienced in it (but I have more than 10 years of Linux experience).
I'm the user of TrueOS 18.03 with FreeBSD 12.0 kernel on amd64 architecture (HP Pavilion notebook)
Today I installed a new PC, FreeBSD 11.0R/amd64 from the official memstick.img installer. I booted the new system and did the below.
freebsd-update fetch install
pkg install xorg Everything went well. But Xorg -configure crashes and core-dumps. I tried...
I try to install package via pkg.

A couple of packages installs but then I got :Operation timed out". I must start the...
I'm doing some testing on FreeBSD 9.0 and I would like to increase the page size to 16kb for AMD64 but I'm having trouble compiling a stable kernel.
I've updated PAGE_SHIFT to 14 and _NPCM to 12 and _NPCPV to 677 in pmap.h to stop the compiler error but after installation the kernel...
I am getting this error when trying to install some Windows application with wine:
err:secur32:SECUR32_initSchannelSP TLS library not found, SSL connections will fail
According to the thread on WineHQ forum this may be because gnutls is either not installed or not used by wine.
(Posting to the "General" forum because I could not find another forum that was better suited to the topic; feel free to relocate the discussion if it belongs elsewhere)
I am developing an application that will run on a server which will be exposed to the Internet; I have persuaded my employer...
