    xterm window resizing and content

    After repeatedly resizing an xterm window, some of its content did not redraw: I guess, one of the sizes (before the screenshot) was too narrow. Is the redraw issue to be expected? x11/xterm % pkg info -x xterm xterm-370 % uname -KU 1400048 1400048 % (I normally use Konsole, but don't...

    Firefox on FreeBSD: shared web content processes, -isForBrowser and dom.ipc.processCount

    dom.ipc.processCount is 8 (the default here). Recently, I often see more than eight content shared web content processes, for example: Is this excess allowed, by design? A later shot: After a few tests, it seems that the expected number is used if, say, I have three windows open before...

    FreeBSD release engineering

    The FreeBSD Project | FreeBSD Release Engineering Thanks, maybe six months is a basis for something else. 11.4 was released around two months after 13.0, and so on, and (unless I'm missing something) I see nothing relating to six months or biannual at the release engineering page above...

I wanted to make a kernel crash dump to further investigate the issue, but after a few tries I still did not manage to do it. I started by following the instructions in the FreeBSD Handbook.

    Solved system stuck on bios splash after reboot only

    Firstly, I couldn't find an answer for this specific problem, so I apologize when this is a common problem. Recently I installed FreeBSD again on a new laptop (Thinkpad T470 20HES2SF00). On my desktop, the OS runs without problems with Xorg. I have chosen FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT for that, because...

    New install (12-CURRENT) without compiler

    Dear all, I am aware CURRENT is not dealt with on this forums but thought it worth asking anyway. I am new, so please don't hate me if this has been answered somewhere. I just did a new build of 12-CURRENT (drm-next-4.7) into an empty dataset and am pleased as it boots and works really well...

    x11/kde4 with 12.0-CURRENT

    With TrueOS Desktop tracking FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT, in August I installed the OS and (below) on 1st September I installed kde4. From ports, I guess. The most recent updates to TrueOS Desktop involved loss of KDE. I made a handful of brief unsuccessful attempts to re-install from ports, then...

    FreeBSD-CURRENT - Mouse not detected

    I wasn't sure if this thread belonged here or in the "development" section, but since it concerns the installation of FreeBSD I might as well post it here. Feel free to move it to the appropiate section. A few days ago I installed a snapshot of 11-CURRENT in order to test the new i915 driver...

    Hello everyone, I'm trying to build latest CURRENT snapshot from svn, but make kernel fails to build with error messages like no member 'command' in ... -- like when some headers are missing or something. But am I wrong in my assumption that any given snapshot is supposed to build?
