I have been using FreeBSD many years ago and was mostly on Linux. There have been many developments that I don't really like, so I decided to go back to FreeBSD and try my luck once again.
Here is my problem: I just installed FreeBSD a few weeks ago and am trying to tweak some stuff...
Ok, so I am having weird issues with NSD. I thought they were firewall issues but my pf rules seem good. To rule out firewall issues, I disabled pf and installed nsd on the main server instead of in any kind of jail.
Once I have my config and zone file set, I run service nsd start and when I...
I've installed FreeBSD 11.2, and i've installed samba too, I use pkg install samba command. When the setup is completed, it says 'your configuration is on /usr/local/etc/smb4.conf'. But when I go to /usr/local/etc directory, I can't find smb4.conf file. I go to /etc and i t same the file is...
I wonder if it is possible to define automatically starting services in /etc/jail.conf? I can set an IP address for a jail, define the NIC to use, give a hostname and other variables. I couldn't start apache24 using exec.start, I assume, because this service isn't enabled in the jail's...
I'm using lightdm with lightdm-gtk-greeter, and after an hour configuring it,
I didn't found a way to have the users list displayed at startup.
BTW, dbus and hald are started, greeter-hide-users is false.
I write this with the objective of talk about security and viruses in FreeBSD.
Once i read in a page about this OS the steps for installing an antivirus. Since that i started to think: how much security this system have?
But, if we consider that this system could be configurable to be more...
I am building firewall using pfsense 2.4.0-BETA (11.0-RELEASE-p11) on Dell E6330, with Microsoft USB Ethernet adapter. Even though it is not on the compatible HW list, I am able to bring it up as LAN interface, and the firewall works properly with multiples PCs on the LAN. However, the...

How can I prevent core dumps of user programs from going to kernel log messages?
At the moment if I am programming and happen to make the common error of segmentation fault, it ends up getting emailed to root like this:
kernel log messages:
+pid 75441 (ds2-test), uid 1001: exited on signal 11...
I think I may have enabled too many security features that prevent me from adding any user account to groups wheel and others during the installation.
I am not sure of how to get these back to not enabled post-installation. At least enabling the superuser account privilege for a...
I didn't see any other threads dedicated to this so thought I'd post, plus scottro offered so here we go! I went through several web pages on the subject but the (custom) build is not working. here's what I did:
Pulled the dwm source to my build directory using git.
Copied config.def.h to...
Port emulators/playonbsd depends on emulators/i386-wine-devel and emulators/pipelight depends on emulators/i386-wine-staging. So when I want to install pipelight pkg asks me to uninstall playonbsd. Does it mean playonbsd is incompatible with pipelight? Are two versions of wine really necessary...
I created the config file as a non-privileged user and then as a root user, soft linked this file into /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf. Later on, I compiled the kernel with make buildkernel KERNCONF='name-of-new-conf-file'. It went straight ahead without flagging any error or anything.
I've just installed databases/mysql57-server on a new server, but can't see the example config files in /usr/local/share/mysql or anywhere to copy to run the server.
$ sudo find / -name "mysql*" 2>/dev/null
and /usr/local/share/mysql/ has:
Hi dudes, so no I have a big problem with my dedicated server...
It was working perfectly, but then, I run the command /etc/rc.d/netif restart and my server falls...
My service provider has no experience with FreeBSD and provided me access to KVM / IP.
I need put this in configuration:
I have Intel HD graphics 3000 integrated in core i5 2540m CPU and no other graphics subsystems.
I've followed handbook to have a display manager and installed a pre-compiled version of xorg (through pkg install xorg) and tried startx for auto-configuration...
Hi everybody, I'm a newcomer at world of FreeBSD, for years I used Debian and Gentoo GNU/Linux, and now my new computer have a FreeBSD desktop with XFCE, and I'm very glad with this OS.
My question is for /etc/rc.conf and the option hald_enable="YES", in my readings over installing and...
