I was updating jails with mergemaster -iFU after 11.2p8 update and run it on main host by inadvertance.

My ageing Mac mini running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 was finally hosed by Apple's Security Update 2018-001 (the one for the debug exception). Both 10.13.4 Recovery and 10.13.4 Internet Recovery failed to boot, but the 'D' built-in hardware test seemed to give the machine a clean bill of health...

Hi everyone -
We're working on a setup that requires a RAID controller to setup 4x 2TB SATA drives in a RAID 5 configuration. This will need to be compatible with FreeBSD 11 as well.
The controller we had on hand unfortunately only has drivers up to FreeBSD 9 so we're stuck having to purchase...
