    Other certain mono functions don't work?

    Are there mono users here? I noticed that some functions do not work properly unless I'm missing something. For example, Process.WorkingSet64 is supposed to return the amount of physical memory allocated for a process, however, it returns 0 in FreeBSD and the actual memory in Linux (the same...

    Java App with Linux Compiled Library Dependency

    On FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p3, is it possible to run a JVM application that has a dependency on a library (.so file) that was compiled for linux? I've developed a JVM application, for JRE 8, that has a dependency on a closed-source third-party library that was compiled for linux. I have been...

    Some perplexities on Linux binary compatibility

    Hi guys, Yesterday I set up the Linux compatibility mode to try to run Android Studio and I found a few things which I do not understand. Note. I am running FreeBSD 11.2 -] brandelf returns wrong values $> brandelf /bin/cat File '/bin/cat' is of brand 'FreeBSD' (9). # OK $> brandelf...

    NEVER let Freebsd become like Ubuntu

    Ubuntu Linux is often touted as “Linux for human beings”. This is really interesting. The other day on an Ubuntu 18.04 machine we were struggling to setup some very basic networking configurations. Something as simple as setting a static ip on a machine turned into a science project. A few...

    ZFS FreeBSD moving to ZFS-on-Linux

    https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-fs/2018-December/027085.html Looks like FreeBSD is going to be re-basing ZFS on the Linux port. The original port was based on OpenSolaris/Illumos which then moved to DelphixOS. However, Delphix have now announced they are moving to the Linux port...

    Setting up a (Debian) Linux jail on FreeBSD

    Hi gang! Prerequisites: I am assuming that you know how to install software on FreeBSD and also have some basic understanding about FreeBSD jails. Editorial I'm going to be very honest here: I started disliking Linux for a while, and I've worked with it for a long time. For various reasons...

    Moving on from Linux to FreeBSD

    Hi Gang, It's been a while since I was here. So, hi all :) Okay. So, I have this Linux box (32 bit Manjaro Linux) for which the support of the OS has stopped. There was an attempt to keep the patient alive, but there are "voices of reason" that call on pulling the perverbial plug... So. Is it...

    how do I boot freebsd root on zfs from linux's grub

    Hi, This is a crossover question because it involves the grub boot loader from Linux and FreeBSD's kernel. I have successfully booted into FreeBSD from grub, but the process produces an environment that is not 100% consistent (upgrading using freebsd-update has an issue, described below). My...

    Installing FreeBSD under KVM with VirtIO

    This is a public "note to self" that I hope will be useful to somebody out there. This evening I wanted to install FreeBSD in a VM under KVM on a Linux VM-host. Also, when I install FreeBSD with ZFS (Read: Always), I like to partition and setup the disks by hand via the "Shell" option in the...

    GNU/Linux, FreeBSD (and other BSD) and Free Software. Your thoughts?

    So I've been using FreeBSD in the past and didn't have much time to play with it to understand everything. At that time I had no idea what libre(free) software was and now that I looked into it I agree with the idea that we should all have the freedom to run the software for any purpose, study...

    Can mount ext2 but can't see or read files...

    Hi! I'm trying to migrate my current home DIY Nas from Ubuntu Server to FreeBSD, and I'm "stumbling on small stones" as we used to say in my native idiom. In order to backup and restore my data, I formatted some external HDDs in ext2 filesystem. They are perfectly readble/writable in Linux...

    Linuxtracker for BSD?

    Hi, It's usual to compare BSD and Linux, one thing that stands in my eyes and just can't shake off is the existance of https://linuxtracker.org/. In the ocean of ilegal bittorrent trackers it as if throws a moral ray of light and shows off as an advantage over BSD -- as if there is not enough...

    Hi everyone, I have just started to try out FreeBSD. I'm installing xorg at the moment. I know that I'm going to run into troubles with installing stuff so I figured I'd make a thread on the forums & see what I can learn! I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section, I don't know what section...
