    Slow boot times on Raspberry Pi 3B+

    Hello, I recently installed FreeBSD 12.1-STABLE on a Raspberry Pi 3B+. FreeBSD booted fine from a technical perspective, but took about five minutes to get to a login prompt. I reflashed the SD card with the RELEASE version, and the same thing happened. I noticed it hung up somewhere near...

    Booting from usb stick

    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie in the *nix world and in command line, but my question is very simple. I would like to know how I can create an USB stick to boot FreeBSD - I don't mean a stick with an image or an ISO to install that, because the system is installed already, I want to know how to boot...

    General comments about FBSD-12 with AMD Ryzen 7 and MSI X570 ACE

    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...

    ‘Cannot identify running kernel’ after upgrading to FreeBSD 12

    I have a VM that I use for some testing, playing around and other non-critical stuff. Because it’s not important I tend to be quite reckless with it, updating for the heck of it, not checking UPDATING before I do etc. Now, however, I have run into an issue that is throwing me off a bit...
