I'm back to the FreeBSD community, and I reinstalled it (bye Linux for now). I managed to establish the Wi-Fi connection and get Xorg working.
However, I've got an issue with my touchpad, it doesn't seem to work. I searched through the forum, through the Wiki, and I always find the same...

You'll be bored to read "always" the same problem, but have installed FreeBSD on my old Laptop with two graphic cards:

After re-installing my desktop PC with FreeBSD, I noticed that my network is awfully slow, but only when X is running.
In the console, I get my usual speed of approx 1.2MiB/s (download). This is the speed it used to run at, both with FreeBSD 11 and 12 before I re-installed.
If I start X and...
Hi, I just bought a Lenovo Hybrid USB-C/USB-A docking station for my X1 Carbon thats running FreeBSD. I can't get it to play nicely. It seems to detect the dock, lights flash etc. Can turn the laptop on/off via the button on the dock. I bought it to connect 2 external monitors and ethernet...
I've modified the patch I found on these fora to allow /dev/kmem write access inside jails. The security arguments are hopefully well known: there isn't any. It's still useful for me in order to test different Xorg configs, desktop environments, and ports trees without potentially screwing up...

My graphics card is a GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB, and the guides I followed in many sites didn't work for me. The main reason: no screens found(EE) when running startx.
After some days of pain, I found the way to do it. If you want to...
During updating of my 11.2-STABLE box, x11/xorgproto failed to update/install.
This was because the port failed to replace all installed '*proto' ports. I have to force delete all "*proto"
ports without deleting their dependent ports. After upgrade am I to reinstall those deleted ports?
Hello, I'm new to freebsd and the way it works(I mean, completely new; I don't even really understand what's going on in the handbook).
I'm mentioning this, because I've searched the threads to find the solution to my problem and I didn't get half the things that were said,
so please be...
