    Is there any DAC compatible with FreeBSD?

    I decided to move from Windows 7 to a BSD or Linux OS on desktop and I'll start a home server probably with FreeBSD.

    C/C++ Checking for a program accessing hardware

    Is there a way to have my program check to see if another program is already accessing or attempting to access hardware, such as a webcam? A web search doesn't yield any results for this and I'm not even sure if FreeBSD has a way to check for this type of thing.

    So I got a new laptop, and I thought I'd install FreeBSD on it like I did with my old one. Dual booting with Windows. But it seems this hardware probably won't work well with FreeBSD. It has Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 Wireless Network Adapter (with wi-fi and Bluetooth), Intel HD Graphics 620...
