I'm playing around with PF on my laptop, mostly to get a better understanding of how it works so I can get it working on my home server.
I'm attempting to block all incoming traffic except that which I'm expecting to receive from Syncthing and KDE Connect. This is the content of my pf.conf...
I would like to share an article about power management in the FreeBSD system.

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...
How can I modify FreeBSD boot/startup process so it doesn't check or try detecting a CD-ROM/DVD?
I am using `FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE-p3` on a 2004 `Toshiba` laptop as a pfSense box. The laptop has what seems to be an incompatible (or most likely just too old) DVD player. Some I/O identification...
I am new to FreeBSD and have recently installed it on my Laptop that has 16 Gb of ram. I chose to use ZFS for the hdd and installed mate for my desktop environment. I've noticed that at times the machine will be using over 90 percent of the ram ... typically after I've mounted and external hard...
I have a "HP UltraSlim Docking Station" (product number B9C87AA) for my HP EliteBook Folio 9470m laptop. The docking station provides power and ports (usb, vga, DisplayPort, ethernet) to the laptop when the laptop is docked.
On my laptop, I run FreeBSD:
tingo@kg-elitebook$ uname -a
I have a lenovo z40-70
I have both windows & linux installed but I use NVIDIA prime package to switch GPUs I mostly use the Intel GPU so that I can hibernate the PC. I was wondering if my hardware would be compatible or if I would need to tweak it in order...
Does anyone know any good brand and model of laptop to use with FreeBSD? I mean, it's already got a battery and everything, you can find them cheap used, you can shove them in a mini fridge... with USB3 and eSATA, like... why not?
Hardware is sometimes hit and miss... chipsets, controllers...
Laptop: Asus model X540S.
Wireless: Atheros model AR5B125 does seem to work, as well as most other hardware.
Xorg "intel" driver fails because no valid screens are found in FreeBSD.
I have attached files from a working Fedora 25 Linux distribution on this laptop: the output of "lspci -vv" as...
I have asked a similar question in this thread(59187#post-342471) but I'm not the author of the thread so I figure a new thread would be a good idea.
My laptop comes with Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 wireless card and I have all the reason to believe that it will not be supported well through its...
I tried to install freeBSD 10.3 on hp zbook 17 G3 and want to update freeBSD laptop wiki page (https://wiki.freebsd.org/Laptops) with my findings but could not find a way to do. The page encourages you to do so if you test new laptop.
Does anyone know how to update...
I am considering the Thinkpad T460 as my next laptop. Could anyone please let me know about the hardware support? Would it be a decent choice to run FreeBSD on?
The T460 is not listed here, any input would be helpful.
I'm having issues setting up Synaptics on my Thinkpad X1 Carbon running 11-CURRENT. I know CURRENT isn't supported, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't just having problems with X.
I started off by following the instructions on the wiki and this leads to a mostly working...
Got myself a new laptop, Toshiba Z30-B-10W. Intel Core i5-5200U, Broadwell-U, Intel HD Graphics 5500. Since the intel driver won't work, I tried the vesa driver. First without a xorg.conf, then with this one:
root@kg-z30b# more /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf_intel
# hand crafted xorg.conf...
