    I don't think so. Windows does not work out of the box very well. It takes a long time to click through a lot of stuff when one gets a new machine. I've done it for others and been surprised at the time it takes - a quick Linux install from...

    Simply because they want it to be like what most people are using. Your comments about it, though I might agree, are irrelevant to most people. This is probably the biggest tragedy in the history of modern computers.

    Does that mean OSS sound is not usable from virtualbox guests? I don't get sound neither from a windows nor a linux guest. Otherwise sound is working perfectly on the FreeBSD host.

    Hi, If only it were that simple. As intimated above, you may need to deviate. e.g. sendmail, as packaged on FreeBSD 11.2, won't talk to Google SMTP servers. I use them, so I must custom configure the sendmail port. Other things come to mind...

    False. Linux is mostly used as a server operating system. Linux has a very small market share in the desktop market ... a few percent at most; if you include tablets and cell phones in the consumer computer count, then Linux' market share drops...

    If the system reboots into the install media, you will need to remove it before rebooting. If it doesn't, you can remove it whenever you want. Note: you cannot use camcontrol eject cd0 from within the installer to eject the disc because it is in...

    I don't remember but it doesn't matter and you won't hurt anything. Just reboot and it takes a few seconds. During that time, pop the disk. I think you can probably pop the disk first. If it tries to grab "reboot" off the disk then just reinsert it.

    I haven't installed FreeBSD-12 so this is just a shot in the dark but you could try installing graphics/drm-legacy-kmod. If that doesn't work see if the drm1.ko is in the kernel. ls /boot/kernel/drm* I read something about the possible removal...

    From a practical standpoint, I would argue that this isn't really true. For instance, I may wish to run an application from ports, either because it is not included in the packages, or because I want to run the newest version available. Under...

    MBR shouldn't have anything to do with your GPU. You should use 12.0-RELEASE and not bother with version 11.0 at all anymore for a new install.

    Frankly, I didn't understand the purpose of such box in this context. To set up an SSH tunnel you need an external server with public IP address, thus both parties (behind firewalls) can be connected through it. Since ISPs charge a lot for static...

    Have you looked in /usr/local/etc/pam.d?

    I've seen them a lot. You should limit the connection rate using e.g.max-src-conn-rate option of pf.

    Why? It's behind a firewall in the scenario described.
  • aragats
    aragats replied to the thread Do you like Teamviewer ?.
    There is a good tool to maintain persistent tunnels: security/autossh, just run it as a cron task @reboot: /usr/local/bin/autossh -M 0 -q -f -N -o "ServerAliveInterval 60" -o "ServerAliveCountMax 3" -R 8022:localhost:22 user@remotehost

    Guess why? If it's a laptop in a different country. There many reasons, of course. They use Skype, for example. Also, are you ready to fly over to help if it's not fixable remotely? ;-)

    Yes, I used to do the same years ago, but eventually installed Linux in their computer and set up an SSH tunnel.

    The kernel doesn't support it, yes, that's correct. But we do have devel/libinotify.

    You might also want to mention that Microsoft themselves have added official FreeBSD support in Hyper-V, including FreeBSD Integration Services (BIS) (the pseudo network driver). I recommend this for two reasons: 1) I find it helps people to...

    You really shouldn't mix tagged and untagged vlans on the same physical interface. While it usually works on FreeBSD (and breaks things horribly on Linux), it doesn't always work the way you think it should. :) Tag all your vlans on the switch...

    Did you try x11/nvidia-driver?

    free-and-bsd replied to the thread devd based AUTOMOUNTER.
    Yes, the automount facility that's part of the OS now still offers no way to allow for regular user write/unmount of the automounted media. Which kind of reduces its usability, doesn't it? For more often than not people use removable USB drives...

    Ok, doing this through the new automount facility seems rather straightforward. Just edit /etc/auto_master file and modify the line: /media -media -nosuid to /media -media -nosuid,fstype=msdosfs,-L=ru_RU.UTF-8 The only problem I see is that...

    OK just test rclone. Works fine but it's a command line , less friendly than the Linux demon But I keep it, I'll change my habits, really want to use freebsd as a desktop and learn new things Thanks a lot :)

    Xorg isn't running. Fix that first. Everything you've tried to do so far requires a configured and working Xorg. Until you've done that nothing that uses Xorg will work. When you build a house do you start building the roof or the foundation first?
  • ShelLuser
    And also important: keep in mind that it's best to use either ports or packages ('pkg') but don't use both at the same time. If you mix the two together then bad things(tm) can happen to your system.
  • SirDice
    Ok, x11/nvidia-driver would be correct for it. Some older cards require the 'legacy' driver.
  • SirDice
    Don't try to run before you're able to walk. Gnome fails because Xorg fails. Fix Xorg first, then you can focus on Gnome.

    What model/type NVidia card? Don't startx as root, use a regular user account. Remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf and/or /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf. Create a /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver-nvidia.conf with: Section "Device" Identifier...

    That's when custom repositories are extremely useful. It gives you the best of both worlds. You get the flexibility of ports and the ease of management from packages.

    It used to be: just a couple of days ago it told me that my free license expired. Period. The older versions work, so, if you don't upgrade to new version, you can still use them, but then it will refuse to connect to hosts running newer versions.

    Teamviewer will be dead soon because of their current licensing policy, AnyDesk is a good replacement, also they officially support FreeBSD. Back to topic: Teamviewer is useful for MS Windows users since they don't have many options for remote...
