    Solved Screen resolution FreeBSD 12.0 Parallels VM

    Having installed FreeBSD-12.0 in a Parallels virtual machine on a 2018 Mac mini running Mojave 10.14.4, the screen resolution defaulted to 1024x768 which was less than ideal on a 24" monitor which does 1920x1080. After searching for hints I came across suggestions to use: mode X gop set X...

    BCM4331 802.11n seems tantalisingly close on mid-2011 Mac mini, using bhnd and if_bwn_pci.ko on FreeBSD 11.2-BETA1

    My ageing Mac mini running macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 was finally hosed by Apple's Security Update 2018-001 (the one for the debug exception).

    Solved Mac Mini 3,1 -- Installation of 10.3-Release

    Any version of FreeBSD post 9.1-Release (both i386 and amd64) fails to install on my late 2009 Mac Mini hardware version 3,1. The problem would appear to be the GPT boot partition code that FreeBSD installs. It changed from 64KB to 512KB at some point after 9.1-Release. Up and until after...
