I'm very new to FreeBSD and I need you guys to help me out with something.
(my English is not so good, sorry for mistakes)
Our teacher asked us to set up a server on FreeBSD and have Linux as a client to share files and manage the client.
I've just downloaded and installed FreeBSD and...
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
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.
I would really like to be able to run AndroidStudio in FreeBSD.
I have got abd working already.
I tried to download Android Studio for Linux and then run
bash -x studio.sh
It hangs without giving any arrors at this line (newlines added it for readability)...
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...
Prerequisites: I am assuming that you know how to install software on FreeBSD and also have some basic understanding about FreeBSD jails.
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...
Hello people :)
I bought two games in Humble Bundle: Deponia The Complete Journey and Gone Home.
Both games have the system requirements on their respective link and have a DRM-Free version.
Will DRM-Free linux version of both games natively work in FreeBSD?
P.S. I only attached the script that...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
I got a screenshot that i cannot post here cause supposedly it to big for the server so can ya'll email me at email@example.com and i will send you the picture. Anyway let me give some background to this i work in a arcade and one of the games goes down and it happened to be temple run so...
I installed FreeBSD 11.1 with Kde and it works. (It doesnt have gpu accelerator but works anyway)
Question is how can I create bootable Windows10 usb or Ubuntu usb in FreeBSD?
I downloaded the ubuntu-16.04.4-desktop-amd64.iso file. If it's possible I can download Windows10-x64.iso too.
I want encrypt external USB drive, at this moment I use dm-crypt (XFS filesystem), but I cannot read this drive under freeBSD.
Do you know any software, which can encrypt drive and it will work on Linux and FreeBSD?
At this moment i think about TrueCrypt,but maybe you know something better.
I recently found myself forced to work with Ubuntu.
I would like to ask what are the equivalence for some common administration tasks.
What is the equivalent of:
where do I add the SERVICE_ENABLE="YES" and other flags?
where do I store the ethernet config on Ubuntu?
I read about...
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...
I have been facing a strange problem on AWS, where I created a large FreeBSD NFS server, with the below configuration.
My throughput to writing a file is 600-800 Mbps and reading files are much higher. I have no issues with throughput, but the problem is with while accessing a folder...
Note: this is a somewhat opinionated writing, but I can back up all my statements with evidence (and I will). I also want to point out that my post isn't necessarily meant to talk down on Linux (hence not mentioning it in the topic), but after seeing all this I did feel like outing a critical...
