Today I made an upgrade of new packages, of which there were many (like all the stuff I use), but the custom configuration appears to be overwritten.

I pkg installed R and the command is available from the command line, but I can't figure out how to start the GUI. I've done my research and there just isn't much out there about R on FreeBSD. Is the GUI there? I am using FreeBSD 11.1 and R-3.4.0_2 and KDE 4. I sorta gave up yesterday and...
Introduction (editorial section)

Hello FreeBSD forum!
I just installed FreeBSD for the first time and wanted to upgrade the whole system. (I'm planning on only using the pre-compiled packages, if that matters. And I have ran the

But did I understand correctly that if I run
# freebsd-update fetch
Firefox on my computer expresses a weird UI issue where many controls are rendered without their borders. For example, radios or checkboxes can be selected but are invisible, since they have no border. Also selecting text doesn't highlight the selected part of the text. I can select and copy the...
FreeBSD 11.0 RELEASE
I have binary packages installed using pkg. Works great and fine in itself.

I am experiencing a strange problem. For a while now I have been using poudriere to build my packages. I am running FreeBSD 11 Stable on amd64 and the poudriere jail is on the same revision as the host system.
Poudriere, packaging upgrading, etc. works for the most part. But a problem...
