I'm experimenting bhyve with virtualized FreeBSD guests.
Host system: FreeBSD 13 with 8 GB or RAM on Intel chip.
On installation, there is a message that says ZFS tuning is necessary for using FreeBSD with less than 8 GB of RAM. I tried giving 1 GB to bhyve FreeBSD guests and they seem to be...
I have an intel skylake i5 3.3GHz processor and it used to work with drm-devel-kmod and xorg-minimal.
I have the default generic kernel but I have found that the packages do not work unless build them myself. I have built xorg-minimal and drm-kmod but whenever I try startx it fails to load...
There's a comment in the BUGS section of the OpenBSD cpu(4) man page:
I'm wondering, whether
* It's an Intel-specific bug, and both FreeBSD and OpenBSD have the same problem.
* It's an OpenBSD specific problem, thus it doesn't apply to FreeBSD.
I understand this question has been asked before on the forums over the years but I would like to request an update for 2021, and given 13.0-RELEASE is right around the corner, perhaps some things have been added that I am not yet aware of.

I tried to get Mate Desktop running.
Once the Slim login screen is displayed and after having entered the username ( the user, not root) and password ,I received the following error message:
“failed to execute login command”
Initially, I didn’t add the xinitrc file with the line “exec...
On a FreeBSD 12.1 install (powerd enabled and running), the CPU fan speed is at 100% even though top is indicating the system is 100% idle. If I do sysctl -a | grep cpu, I see the CPU frequency is the lowest (800MHz). As for the cx_usage, I see 100% 0% 0% on both cores.
The CPU heat sink...
I have setup a fresh installation of GhostBSD 20.04.1 in a Toshiba Satellite L50-C. (Try first FreeBSD 12.1 but graphic card works better on GhostBSD ;) )
When the laptop was working on Linux Mint 19.3, it had an average speed (using wlan0) of 50-60 Mbit/s download and 20-30 Mbit/s...
I'm planning to get an Intel NUC10i5FNK (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/boards-kits/nuc/kits/nuc10i5fnk.html).
But I was worried about this new hardware (especially CPU / GPU) supported by FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE ?
CPU : Intel® Core™ i5-10210U Processor.
Good morning fellow BSD-lovers.
As the topic suggests, iam trying to get the Intel Wireless AC9462 running on my freshly installed 13.0-CURRENT. Iam using the iwm driver with the newly added support for AC 946X. Unfortunately, the driver doesn't detect the PCI device.
According to the...
I'm having trouble getting my dual monitor setup to work. I have my first monitor "Screen0" plugged into my motherboard (intel, at least I think so). I have my second monitor plugged into my nvidia graphics card, "Screen1". I can get the Screen0 to work if I have my driver set to "modesetting"...
I first tried with a nvidia gtx 1050 and the standard nvidia-driver package. But I had a lot of tearing so I wanted to adjust the settings via nvidia-settings. The problem with the standard driver is that nvidia-settings do not open. So then I tried to configure the driver via a...
I'm currently running FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p12 with XFCE and it is slow: top reports Xorg using 90+% of CPU resources on idle state.

My own experience in FreeBSD is limited to servers for the most part. However, I have a few Intel NUCs and similar systems (Gigabyte Brix, Zotac Zbox) around and was wondering what people's experience with FreeBSD was on those systems, as either servers or desktops. I guess ethernet and audio...
Hi, I have still a problem like in this bug.
I tried # service netif restart igb0 && service routing restart and
# ifconfig igb0 down
# ifconfig igb0 up
I'm looking for a workaround except restart the system.
I have just recently upgraded from 11.2 to 12.0 and my graphics settings are now borked. Previously I had the terminal resolution set to 1280x720 with this code in /boot/loader.conf
It was using this:

Persecuted by further discoveries of gaps in the mechanism of speculative instruction execution, Intel discovered that its chips are vulnerable to attack on the other hand - the infamous Management Engine remote management subsystem. This computer-in-computer, which can have complete control...
Is the iwm driver supposed to work with wlans on 5 GHz now? Yesterday I updated a laptop to the latest FreeBSD 11.1-stable
