    jails Run firefox within a Linux chroot jail in FreeBSD 13.1

    Hi All, I have managed to install a Ubuntu chroot jail within FreeBSD 13.1. However, I need to run Firefox from it to launch Jupyter Lab from a python virtual environment within the chroot subsystem. I was wondering if I could use the FreeBSD Firefox from the subsystem. Nevertheless, I installed...

    Shared home between Linux and Freebsd?

    Hello, is it possible to mount a shared network disk as /home between a Linux and a Freebsd computer? I'm not sure what would happen if the two systems try to access the same data in /home. Does anyone know if this is practical or possible without permition problems? Thanks.

    Issue with default Linuxulator: failed to load amdgpu

    I've been running a Linux binary (its from an open-source Godot project but there was no FreeBSD version) using the default Linuxulator. Weirdly enough, this binary worked the other day because it complained about the same error below and I installed graphics/linux-c7-dri and it worked. In the...

    general/other How do I install FreeBSD in GNOME Boxes properly?

    Hi. I'm running Debian 11. I have GNOME Boxes installed as a Flatpak. I've tried various guides on installing FreeBSD as a VM (in other VM Managers) but I can never get it to work properly in GNOME Boxes - low resolution & other miscellaneous issues. I have a AMD Ryzen 7 3800X CPU & a Radeon...

    Linux GOG games on FreeBSD

    I use the Linuxulator for Steam, but I've never tried running a Linux game outside of linux-steam-utils. I'm curious, are GOG Linux games as simple as having the Linuxulator enabled and running whatever binary starts it? The only GOG games I've ran have been through WINE, so this is why I'm...

    Linux binary vs FreeBSD binary

    I'm working on a project about recompiling Linux binaries to FreeBSD. No, I'm not talking about Linux binary compatibility. I want to do something different. I know FreeBSD and Linux are two different OSes, and it's very hard or maybe impossible to do something like that, but all fine... I will...

    Setting up a Bionic/Linux (Android) chroot environment on FreeBSD.

    Why have you done this? Mainly due curiosity and research purposes. Android makes use of the Linux kernel + Bionic libc (userland), so I thought an Android chroot environment would work, just like any GNU/Linux chroot environment does. It's important to note, however, essential Android apps...

    General question about 13.0 as a working station

    I have been working with both backend development, as well as embedded software development. I am fairly new to FreeBSD (almost a year of "casual" usage for small personal projects in my personal computer, not at work). I would really like to try out FreeBSD(obviously starting from testing) as...

    How to set or make FreeBSD report its OS as "Linux" to fool a (Java) app?

    I'm trying to run a Java app written for Linux on FreeBSD 13. The Java app reports the operating system "FreeBSD" as being not recognized. Is there anyway to set or make FreeBSD output its name as "Linux" to "fool" the Java app?

    Can I compile Linux hardware code with FreeBSD?

    So I have a close-source wi-fi card. It works fine with windows ofc and fine with Linux because Ubuntu's developers develop a hardware support for that driver and its open-source.
