Hello there, long time lurker, but haven't posted. seems I've found what I needed to survive for 15 years until this day. I have an interesting situation that I've trying to resolve....
I have a hard drive (4Tb) that has a lot of important content on it I was using on a FreeNAS (NAS4free)...
This is a guide on how to dual boot windows 11 and FreeBSD 14.
I recently received a fantastic laptop that happens to be surprisingly compatible with FreeBSD,
so I highly recommend it, and no, I am not sponsored by MSI;
I have merely fought enough laptops to recognize a keeper when...
I'm sure you are going to say "YES" but please not so fast.
1. When installing FreeBSD 14.0, I am offered the choice between ZFS and UFS. If I select ZFS, the option to encrypt is there, very clear, impossible to miss. If I select UFS though, encryption is never mentioned at all. Does FreeBSD...
I have a 300gb external HDD that I am trying to partition entirely for FreeBSD, then format with UFS filesystem. I am using newfs -j option to enable Soft Updates + Journal, but getting the warning message "Journal file fragmented" after the format is complete.
# gpart show /dev/da0
I have a situation where a user accidentally deleted all of the photos in a directory and its sub-directories, ironically to save some space in preparation for a backup. (Helpful hint: Wise Duplicate File Remover apparently removes the originals along with the duplicates). The photos in question...
I've been happily using 13.2-RELEASE for a while, with ufs filesystem
Now planning to setup a fresh14.0 system on some old~ish hardwares, likely a combination of modest SSD and a single spinning drive.
14.0 system will just be used for a simple desktop, and various small projects.
Most likely I...
I've been facing a problem for a while. My system sometimes suddenly reboots by itself. I thought my surge protector was ruined and bought another one. But finally I found out that FreeBSD file system is corrupted. This happened to me so many times and it was really annoying.
I (almost) solved...
I'm trying to expand my root partition but can't do it, I tried gpart, I also tried deleting the swap partition and adding more space, here is the result :
root@appserver:~ # gpart show
=> 63 83886017 ada0 MBR (40G)
63 1 - free - (512B)
Hey! I have a newbie question.
I have a USB enclosure with a 1TB SATA 2.5" Spinning disk. I have followed this guide,
but I don't want the disk in fstab as it's detachable.
I have mounted the disk with
'mount /dev/da0 /media/da0'
I'm attempting to share a home partition between my WSL2 (Debian) and FreeBSD (dual-boot).
wsl cannot mount the partition containing the home filesystem since it is on the same disk as the C: drive.
Same output for `ufs2'
The partition number is correct
This is salient...
I'm new to FreeBSD, and right now I'm practicing installing and setting it up in VirtualBox on a Linux machine. What are the disadvantages e.g. by using UFS. So far I have used Clonezilla for Bcakup of my computers. Clonezilla cannot backup ZFS. What do I do if I choose ZFS file system. I have...
I have one SSD where FreeBSD is installed. I also have a spinning HDD where I keep my data. This spinning HDD is EXT4 since I was using Linux before. FreeBSD's support for EXT4 is very nice. I don't feel I am using a non native filesystem. Everything is working smoothly.
My question is if I...
– and so on.
Good news. Significant improvements ahead:
Related FreeBSD bugs include:
253553 – sysutils/lsof: no zfs support on 13
260235 – sysutils/lsof: filenames missing on FreeBSD >= 13, due to namecache field change
Before I open a bug for a part of the page that's wrong:
does anyone else have corrections, or suggestions for improvement?
I have two gmirrors on my machine. Both are showing up as degraded. These are brand new drives that I just installed (so I don't mind blowing up the configuration and re-doing things).
I followed this guide to get going as I have no experience with gmirror...
So I made a blunder today. I was working on the tensorflow 2.x port and I was clearing up getting ready to commit it to git. During the clearing up, I went to rm some test files I had, but during my impatience, I tab completed the name which complete to files/ and deleted all my patches for...
