Hi everyone, I'm trying to get wifi to work in an old Macbook.
I followed the instructions in this thread: BCM4322 - WIFI Card - Freebsd 11.2 not working. In short, I compiled a new kernel with the BWN_GPL_PHY and BWN_DEBUG options enabled, installed firmware from net/bwn-firmware-kmod, and...
How do I control my screen brightness on my laptop installed with FreeBSD 13.1 and KDE5?
I did a "pkg info" and "plasma5-powerdevel-5.24.5" is indeed already installed along with the standard KDE5. And, "dbus" is already enabled.
I could not find any screen brightness controls in the Settings...

I have a fresh install of 13.0-Release on a ThinkPad T460. Suspend and resume works as expected from X or Terminal environments using acpiconf -s 3. The default install should have no lid-close action as far as I know, however when I - without setting hw.acpi.lid_switch-state - close my lid, the...

First of all Hello everybody, I am new to the forum and FreeBSD, I am also posting this in general because it didn't feel like it belonged in a more specific category.
Apologies if my question is stupid, but I understand very little of how virtualization treats hardware components,
I have a laptop (Thinkpad L460) with a jack port that can take both input audio and output audio.
TL.DR.: I'm trying to setup a jack port that can take headphones and/or microphone, so I can use an external analog Jack mic to record.

I have just seen that neither the signalapp / Signal-Desktop nor the deltachat-desktop app has been ported to FreeBSD yet.
Has anyone already taken a look if it's possible or to run the (Debian-based) Linux binary? Or to run the Windows app with Wine?
P.S. I'm not using FreeBSD (waiting for...
I was just wondering if someone would be interested in porting signalapp / Signal-Desktop or if there is specific reason why it hasn't been ported yet (Linux only?).
P.S. I'm not using FreeBSD (waiting for 13.0 RELEASE to go onto my new laptop) or Signal yet, nor am I a developer, so this is...
Let's just brainstorm...
What would you expect a "FreeBSD Kommunity Edition" to be/offer?
What would you like it to be/offer?
Is there demand for such a thing?
Would you like to see a *BSD Kommunity Edition?
What is missing or should be better in base FreeBSD / in the KDE ports?

I am currently running Ubuntu 20.04LTS and not very happy with the experience. I would like to use FreeBSD on this laptop and was wondering if it supports the Ryzen and Vega chips...
I've been using FreeBSD for a decade on servers and infrastructure. Last weekend I thought it's time to give it a chance as a desktop OS. For this, I've been installing FreeBSD 12.1 on my old Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon (3rd gen).
I managed to install the base system, get wifi to work, have i3...
