Hi, I'm about to switch to FreeBSD for main dailly desktop usage, and I'm concerned about my data and slightly about performance.
My machine is 64bit and i know (based on what I've read online) that, SHA-512 is faster than SHA-256 on a 64bit system.
So, i was wondering if...
I have a machine which previously dual-booted Windows 10 and GhostBSD, using rEFInd (which was installed by the GhostBSD installer). I'm trying to wipe the machine and install a fresh copy of FreeBSD 13.1 as the only OS on the machine. (I used GhostBSD to figure out some hardware stuff and...
On Windows (the OS I'm most familiar with) you can factory restore the system so that it appears in the same way that it did when Windows was first installed.
Is this an option for FreeBSD?
I cluttered my system pretty bad when I was first learning and I want to start over without deleting and...
I'm trying to install FreeBSD 13.1 on a Lenovo E545 Laptop.
A SunplusIT Inc. integrated camera is interrupting installation.
Initially I get:
Root mount waiting for:CAM
Root mount waiting for:ahcich1: Timeout on slot n port 0
After 2-3 screens of timeouts, the install menu appears and...
I created a vm for 'rocky linux' using virt-manager. A virtual console was presented and the install was completed normally. When I rebooted from the console the machine evidently restarted and is currently running. However, I cannot get a console window to open.
The virt-manager display...
# The thread was opened with the idea of installing Bhyve-server in an old amd server with 13.1 command line, the first few posts relate to the errors / limitations during install in that server. After that I moved on to install in in a desktop with kde5. The errors mentioned in the first few...
Would it work If I do the installation manually like creating BSD disklabel/UFS partitions, doing tar -xf base.txz kernel.txz onto new root, running grub-mkconfig and then running bsdconfig once I boot into the new OS?
I had problems with a lot of linux distros related to missing wifi drivers that are a pain in the butt or near impossible to install, will i need to install wifi drivers first before installing freebsd?
I am trying to use etc/installerconfig to templatize the dev VM installations that I frequently do, but cannot figure out how to enable networking. I would like to enable networking during the install, so that I can download packages. The interface name with likely be em0, or vtnet0. Is...

Hello to all,
my first post here. I hope following question won't be in inappropriate forum section.
I'm thinking about trying FreeBSD for small four drive NAS and use advantages of ZFS filesystem. Previously I've done bunch of similar NASes with Linux and dmraid. There I typically sliced all...
I am trying to reinstall FreeBSD and am getting the following message when scanning for wireless access points: "No wireless networks were found. Rescan?"
I am close to my Wi-Fi router and the network is up. In my previous two installs, many wireless networks in the area always appeared...
I have a fresh installation of FreeBSD 13.0-Release on a machine without internet connection. Some time ago, to install pkg, I would enter "/usr/ports/ports-mgmt/pkg" and call "make" to build it. However, now I am getting the following errors:
In other words, to build "pkg" from ports, it...
I want to give FreeBSD another chance. I've used FreeBSD as a desktop a little bit for about a year. But I am a complete noob and need the help of The FreeBSD Forums once again if I am to use it as my primary desktop.
See these two blog posts I made about how I installed FreeBSD (with the...
I am trying to install Free BSD on HP ZBook 15 G6 following handbook. I didn't get very far because my computer freezes after BOOT Menu and printing masks 0x00ff0000 0x0000ff00 0xff000000.
I did try "safe mode" but nothing changed.
I am pretty intrigued by the fact that FreeBSD 14.0 boots...

Memory: 16 GB
HardDisk: 250 GB
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 530 1536 MB

I am planning to purchase NVMe hardware and I am planning to install FreeBSD on it (ZFS). My work is to try bhyve (linux, windows guests) and play with it.
I would like to know, whether this NVMe based devices are supported.
I'm feeling a bit foolish because I had sound working on this machine before, but I'm having issues on reinstall:
updated my default unit from 4 to 5:
confirmed by issuing command
which yields output:
root@mordor:~ # cat /dev/sndstat
please excuse me if there is already an answer to my question. I could not find one.
So far my question is hypothetical. I plan to install FreeBSD on an encrypted and mirrored zroot. But before I do this, I want to make sure that in case of a disk failure, I also know how to repair the...
Hello! Could you help me to get ahead in solving the problem installation of FreeBSD12.2 with GELI encrypt?
