Questions about 'derivative FreeBSDs', like
  • TrueOS
  • DesktopBSD
  • FreeNAS
  • XigmaNAS
  • M0n0wall
  • pfSense
  • ArchBSD
  • JabirOS
  • BSD Router Project
  • FuryBSD
should be asked on the forums and/or mailing lists for these specific products. See below for links.

If you still think your questions should be asked here, beware of the following:

  • To show that you have indeed tried to get a solution from the forum or mailing list of the FreeBSD derivative in question, you may be asked to provide a link to a forum post or a mailing list message demonstrating that you asked the proper community for help first. You cannot expect the FreeBSD community to support all derivative and spin-off projects.
  • The answers you may get are very likely based on FreeBSD; these answers may not apply to your product at all, and people may not even notice that your original question was not about FreeBSD
  • Following advice given here (which may not be applicable to your system) may render your system unusable, or altered in a way that causes serious problems
  • These derivative products are all customised in some way, which means, among other things, that their base system, ports/package management, source code, X system, kernel configuration, libraries, disk layout, installation procedure, disk systems, etc. etc. may be very different.
  • Do not blindly follow any advice given here!
  • If you still decide to post a thread about any of these derived FreeBSD products, make sure to mention it in the topic title (e.g. [FreeNAS], [PC-BSD]) or in the first post!
  • Again: do not blindly follow any advice given here!

Debian GNU/kFreeBSD and ubuntuBSD are exceptions! Read the information below.(*)

Debian GNU/kFreeBSD and ubuntuBSD are not FreeBSD derivatives, they are a FreeBSD kernel with GNU/Linux userland. No FreeBSD developers or programmers are involved in these products. Topics about Debian GNU/kFreeBSD and ubuntuBSD should not be posted on these forums. We will only deal with the FreeBSD kernel in combination with the FreeBSD userland.
