    OJ replied to the thread Best BSD alternative(s) to FreeBSD?.
    I think he's asking what our opinion is on the matter.

    Do you not know? Have you never tried? After all, you've been around here for a year, and constantly have something to say about everything on a daily basis, so I am curious why you feel the need to ask this question and have not discovered it on...

    Like ralphbsz, I'm curious about the situation. OpenBSD often runs, with less work for X, mouse, and so on, on laptops. Otherwise, I'd like to hear the situation, but if it is a matter of the hardware not working well with FreeBSD, my first...

    I've run OpenBSD before, and was very happy with it. Honestly, even happier than with FreeBSD, because the system is even more clean and organized. I had to give up on it due to missing features. The question is though: in what scenario would...
  • R
    Definitely agree. While we can do more research and debugging to figure out what causes the long delay, it clearly is not good behavior. It may be irrelevant, because the situation the OP is creating just doesn't happen in the real world (people...

    ralphbsz replied to the thread Cron does not start at boot.
    Good data. Sadly not the answer. Good news: "service -e" says that cron should be started. By the way, your output from that command looks very similar to mine, I just have a lot fewer services enabled (server, not desktop). Even more good...

    Well, that's doubles the work. Probably. I'll upgrade to 11.3 and stop :p Is jails continue to operate without upgrade? I never updated jails before, so it will take some time.

    Thanks for the writeup, tested on 12.0-REL-p4 and everything works. Soon testing some 4K monitor.

    My comment was centered on using the DCP-1512E without linux emulation. OpenSuse has an rpm with 1510.ppd: See file list at bottom of link OpenSuse rpm.pbone.net It is possible to extract the 1510.ppd file in the rpm and then edit it. There is...

    it's easy to export the table it should look like something like this ipfw table 2 list | sed '1d' > /tmp/t2_export.txt This will export the table 2 and the set number next to the ip address. For import use ipfw table 2 flush cat...

    I'm with you on that concept. Been there, done that. :) Me being an amateur it is sometimes difficult in some situations to put my finger on a useful way forward. A link or description would be more helpful. (But perhaps I missed it.) I have...

    OK, so the open() call itself (specialized version of opening the file) is the one that is slow; the truss line is printed when the call finishes. The dd executable probably calls openat() at 0.00214 (right after the previous call finishes), and...

    I haven't found any way to get sound out of the VCR... at least not on FreeBSD. I did manage to capture sound on Windows, but then I was unable to capture any Video. cat /dev/sndstat shows: Installed devices: pcm0: <Realtek ALC269 (Analog...

    Oh sorry, didn't look at the real time spent. That's indeed odd. Why would dd hang before or after writing 1GB? And why for such a long time? In ~45 seconds, it could do a lot of work, much more than writing a 1GB file requires. Do two...

    I will respectfully disagree. My test showed the problem clearly. The first three runs were normal. The last run took over 46 seconds to complete. Using /dev/zero. I agree that for testing throughput on a normal system, a bigger file size...

    Sorry, I didn't make it clear. The first three runs of the test work just fine as you both noted. Please check out the fourth and final run. That one hit the random, unpredictable issue. It took 46+ full seconds to complete: real 0m46.998s...

    How did you measure that? I simply don't believe it. I have run the same Pi3 with both FreeBSD and then with Raspbian, and while I didn't perform any measurements, both seemed adequately fast to me. Of the two Rpi I have in production, the...
  • R
    Two things. I see nothing particularly slow. Instead, I see four measurements that are within 5% of each other. That's perfectly repeatable. Second, you are actually not doing any disk IO at all. Instead, you are just writing to file system...

    Can one work around this by hand-installing a slightly older version of the ssh daemon? In the bug, there is mention that using using openssl-portable from ports might solve the problem.
