    Installing FreeBSD on an old tablet

    I don't know wether this is the correct place to ask this question, but I'm really stuck and help would be much appreciated. I have an old tablet in which I want to install FreeBSD. Currently it has Android installed and CWM recovery. I'm pretty sure that FreeBSD is compatible with the...

    boot loader - how to make it read the config files from the prompt ("OK")?

    Is there a way to make FreeBSD's boot loader read (or re-read) the config files (like /boot/loader.conf) after you have escaped from the menu to the boot loader prompt? When I read the sources in /boot/lua it seems like there should be a "read-conf" command, but it doesn't exist when I try from...

    I'm stumped with a problem and would appreciate any pointers for troubleshooting. I got my RPI to start booting in 3440x1440 with the following /boot/msdos/config.txt: [all] arm_64bit=1 dtparam=audio=on,i2c_arm=on,spi=on dtoverlay=mmc dtoverlay=disable-bt device_tree_address=0x4000...

    I am repurposing a 10Zig Linux thin client terminal that has a dual core 64-bit intel atom with AES-NI, but I cannot install any version of FreeBSD beyond 11.1-RELEASE .

    Solved Preventing DVD detection at boot

    How can I modify FreeBSD boot/startup process so it doesn't check or try detecting a CD-ROM/DVD? I am using `FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3` on a 2004 `Toshiba` laptop as a pfSense box. The laptop has what seems to be an incompatible (or most likely just too old) DVD player. Some I/O identification...

    memstick image is not booting OS

    Hi All, I'm just trying FreeBSD for the 1st time. My initial impression is one of disappointment. I downloaded FreeBSD-11.1-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img.xz and unzipped it and successfully installed it on my USB Flash drive using the dd command. It appears to boot, initially, but after...

    Alternative Boot Loader

    Is there an alternate boot loader? BTX gets going enough to print it's version (1.02) and maintain a blinking cursor but beyond that it doesn't actually do anything. I was searching for a solution and it seems that this was not an issue with the earlier version of BTX. It seems that I would need...

    Hi! I've been using FreeBSD 9 on a fairly old computer based on Intel® DG45FC motherboard, with a Celeron 64bit CPU. After 3 years lying there gathering dust, I've decided to repurpose it and run the latest release. So far, I've been unsuccessful at booting FreeBSD 10.3/11.0-RELEASE (AMD64)...

    Solved vm_fault: pager read error, pid 1 (init)

    As my kernel messages were scrolling through I suddenly get this scrolling through endlessly: vm_fault: pager read error, pid 1 (init) If I look quick enough, it seems to happen at the very end of the boot-up. For what its worth, I am doing this very odd remote dual-boot setup where I change...

    Solved System won't boot after moving to a different disk?

    At work I have a 10.3/AMD64 system that currently has root on a UFS2 file system on a single disk, and I'd like to ultimately move it to ZFS on mirrored disks. However, as I'd like to use the existing disk as one of the two mirror disks, my first step was to clone the contents of the current...
