    iwm in FreeBSD 13 Hardware Notes

    I was going through the FreeBSD 13 Hardware Notes and couldn't find any mention of the wireless network adapters supported by iwm driver. Is this a mistake or is there any reason behind it e.g too unstable yet to use etc. ?

    [Guide] Using Git to manage ports, source and documentation.

    Hi gang! Disclaimer: I am honestly a little excited about recent developments so expect to find some (small) opinionated parts in this guide. Nothing excessive mind you, but I can sometimes get a little carried away and despite some believes I never really plan guides like this. Editorial In...

    FreeBSD documentation and XML

    I have submitted my first contribution to FreeBSD documentation. However I use vim and I had to modify XML with vim. I don't have any prior experience in manipulating XML, but I tell you, I am not having fun with this. How you people comfortably contribute to FreeBSD documentation? This is my...

    Documentation: what sets amateurs & professionals apart...

    Note: this is a somewhat opinionated writing, but I can back up all my statements with evidence (and I will). I also want to point out that my post isn't necessarily meant to talk down on Linux (hence not mentioning it in the topic), but after seeing all this I did feel like outing a critical...

    Where is official documentation for "jail.conf"?

    Since the several past releases, we had been been getting this message: /etc/rc.d/jail: WARNING: Per-jail configuration via jail_* variables is obsolete. Please consider migrating to /etc/jail.conf. I had been keeping watch on the jails documentation for a few years and still couldn't see...

    Solved GVFS double instructions

    It seems to me that there is much overlap with FreeBSD documentation versus vendor documentation. It seems such is the case with GVFS ntfs support. For example, Nautilus in Gnome 3 already sees the partitions on my external USB2, but by default there is no access. Only manually was I able to...

    Documentation improvement

    As for documentation, the way it is, is inefficient. Different people are responsible for different pages of it, so when you suggest an improvement, they, understandably, aren't there for periods of time. The Handbook becomes stagnant, in this state. There is a stigma about wikis, because many...

    Post your FreeBSD setup/build?

    I was thinking.. since I've just finished my FreeBSD/ZFS NAS build - wouldn't it be nice to have a thread on this forum somewhere where people can post their setup, and the way they've built their setup, and the problems they've encountered during the build, hardware components used etc. etc...

    It is time to say sorry

    Hello, in summer of last year I've started to work with FreeBSD, to get familiar with it. As a Linux user for a long time I've compared some things around documentation and I thought, that for example Arch Linux is much more well documented than FreeBSD and discussed it here. Some people here...

    The FreeBSD Documentation Project: fast build?

    I have the documentation project ports and source files installed. I have previously done a full build of the documentation. Is there a setting to tell make to not build the entire document set once everything is built? To build just the stuff that has changed? Similar to NO_KERNCLEAN and...

    Processor support for bhyve

    I am trying to determine if my processor supports bhyve. Just reading the 21.7. FreeBSD as a Host with bhyve page. I can find the POPCNT flag when grepping /var/run/dmesg.boot but can't find a line with VT-x. In particular: CPU: AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 3380 (2600.05-MHz K8-class CPU)...

    FreeBSD 10: how to load fuse kernel module?

    First of all; yes - I do know how to load it. But this is interesting none the less. How are FreeBSD 10.x users going to know that they need to load the fuse kernel module? Let us look at a recent FreeBSD 10.2-stable machine: root@kg-z30b# uname -a FreeBSD kg-z30b.kg4.no 10.2-STABLE FreeBSD...

    Solved Unattended installs using pkg

    I'm in the middle of setting up a FreeBSD server using Ansible and I needed to skip prompts during a pkg install command to force it into 'unattended mode'. I am relatively still new to FreeBSD and am finding my way around the handbook but mostly using man pages, but this was not quite well...

    Doxygen install failure

    I am hitting a wall on getting devel/doxygen to install. I am unable to get past the make command. There seems to be a LaTex error and I am not sure how to correct it. I have no idea how to use LaTex or what it is trying to do here. I see that there has been a lot of Package hyperref warning:. I...

    Doxygen and LaTeX

    Hello, I use LaTeX everyday and unfortunately Doxygen calls teTeX port. There will be an option to use texlive instead of latex without modifying the port manually? Thank you.
