I have been using boot environments with ZFS on PC-BSD/TrueOS for a year or so now and really like them. It's nice to be able to reboot and simply rollback the last update if something went wrong.
Since FreeBSD 10.3 reports supports for boot environments I gave it a whirl today. I installed the...
I recently purchased an Acer Aspire One "cloudbook" that has a 64gb Hynix eMMC part as it's internal disk. My goal is to make this a lightweight FreeBSD-only machine for travel and daily mobile computing. When trying an install of 10.1-RELEASE the eMMC device was not found and...
I am fairly new to FreeBSD having made the switch based on a really good experience breathing new life into an Xserve G4 with FreeBSD 10.2. So, I decided to switch out from CentOS Linux to FreeBSD on my dev server.
I was able to get everything up and running with no problem. I followed the...
yesterday, I attempted to install the latest SmartGit release on my FreeBSD (10.2) and, being written in Java, it should work. But when I run the boot script I get these exceptions:
Error invoking SmartGit
My server is exporting some folders through NFS. The server is running on ZFS however those folders are not mounted automatically, they are marked as legacy mountpoints and are mounted through a file in /usr/local/etc/fstab/ by one of the jail when the jail is starting.
So the problem is that...
I wanted to try FreeBSD on my PC but it's giving me trouble.
The PC is relatively new, Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7, 32GB DDR4 with Core i5-6600K. BIOS is set to defaults, no overclock. Memory has been tested overnight, 4 complete passes no faults. System has been...
I've installed FreeBSD-10.2-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso about 15 times now. The checksum on the iso is good. The first time was encouraging until it quit letting me in. On the third day (that would be six or seven restarts after halt -p shut downs. It quit being a terminal. Upon startup the...
I'm running 10.2-RELEASE with GENERIC kernel.
I'm trying to use a boot splash screen and did the implementation right according to the FreeBSD handbook and the few threads here in the board including the correct file format via GIMP.
When I boot with boot splash configured it...
Hi! Maybe this is a stupid thread, but I think all stupid questions in this forum may help some people looking at Google :rolleyes:
The question is: what is the difference between /boot/loader.conf and /etc/rc.conf?, that is, for example, to have linux_load="YES" in /boot/loader.conf or to have...
Hi all, this is my first experience in the BSD world, I want to install FreeBSD 10.2 on this old machine:
HP Compaq dc5850
AMD Athlon(tm) Dual Core 4450B @ 2300Mhz
5gb DDR2 RAM
250gb Seagate HDD
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1500 256MB
I downloaded FreeBSD-10.2-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img and wrote it to...
I have a PCI SSD which is not recognized by my BIOS. This means I can't select it as boot device.
But since FreeBSD has no problem to use this disk I can install FreeBSD on it.
So my idea was to have just boot from a USB stick and load then my root on ZFS.
Is this possible? Is there any...
Until two days ago my bootup times were blazing fast, maybe 2 or 3 seconds between the BIOS screen and the base system starts loading. Then I upgraded the computer (skylake processor and a new z170 asus motherboard) and the kernel load started to do funny things. It now spends like 20...
I'd like to set up FreeBSD 10.2 to boot from ZFS, so I read the wiki page at https://wiki.freebsd.org/RootOnZFS/GPTZFSBoot/9.0-RELEASE
My only point of confusion is the note in step 7 that says "FreeBSD 10.1 or later: Load the ZFS kernel module and set the minimum ashift value with sysctl...
I attempted to change /boot/defaults/loader.conf and it doesn't work. I searched on Google and I found solutions. The kernel boot process doesn't work.
If this ever happened to you, please help.
Thank you very much to all,
