    Yet to see one that doesn't. And when it doesn't, it's probably something else, not ECC itself being the reason. Have used my handful of modules from s1366 Xeon system in half dozen non-ECC machines (AM1, AM3, s1150). Sold some second hand and...

    The problem here seems simple: you didn't follow the instructions in /usr/ports/UPDATING. Always keep an eye out for relevant entries in there and follow up on them: 20180731: AFFECTS: users of x11/xorg and all ports with USE_XORG=*proto...

    Is it possible to boot some other operating system using that same USB port? Which one did you test?

    Yet the bottom has fallen out on used DDR3 ECC. I bought a boatload and use them in regular machines. Surprising how many machines will work with ECC modules installed without using the ECC The used 16GB ECC modules are cheaper than...

    Yes, you can spread vdevs across controllers. Why would you think you couldn't? In fact, for proper redundancy, you need to spread your vdevs across multiple controllers if you want to be able to use the pool when a controller dies. So long as...

    I've never met a Seagate drive model I didn't end up hating, from a quality control point of view. On the plus side: their performance seems to be better at the same generation than their competitors. And for consumer-grade drives, their prices...

    The theoretical maximum transfer speed for CIFS/SMB on a 1Gbps network is 125MBytes/s, this is a network limit, not a storage bottleneck. So if you're on a gigabit network and are measuring more than that you're doing something wrong and are...

    The end of life for Samba 3 was decided by upstream, and it was kept in FreeBSD for a while past then, IIRC. Then some other changes (like devel/tevent) broke the ability to build / use Samba 3 easily (on recent-ish versions of FreeBSD, at...

    I have written some max memory values earlier in this thread. Based on this values I guess both linux and windows 64bit doing some similar thing. Don't get me wrong. I don't think FreeBSD should have such mechanism to squeeze the last byte out...

    Installing to an external USB hard disk is no different to installing it on a local hard disk, you just have to pick the correct device. On FreeBSD local disks are identified as /dev/adax and external disks are identified as /dev/dax.

    In the beginning, there was FreeBSD, and it was grand! But getting a working X11-based desktop system setup was a pain, so PC-BSD was born. This was a standard FreeBSD system with a GUI installer and new binary package system for apps. And there...

    FreeBSD will always remain FreeBSD, it's handled by the FreeBSD foundation and not going anywhere. Just because some other projects build upon FreeBSD doesn't automatically imply that they're also affecting it. Anyway, I did some research and I...

    robroy liked getopt's post in the thread Quality of the Web.
    I agree 100%. If you look on the code side of web pages it is quite common that you see 2.000+ lines HTML for some very few sentences of information. This is accompanied by some *.js which can hold easily 10.000+ lines each. This state of the art...

    Skip my previous comment, I really need to be a bit more patient and actually read the error messages (so do you by the way ;) ). Your problem is that you apparently have automake-wrapper installed which is a port that dates back to earlier this...

    The 64KB switch code is special to how Mach (and thus MacOS X) go about things. You can not configure that on FreeBSD or any Unix I know of.

    There are some issues with 11.2 and NVidia. Firstly, it has to be installed from ports for the moment, not packages. Depending upon your card, you'll either want x11/nvidia-driver or, if it's an older card (you have to hunt around if it's a card...

    Do you even use FreeBSD? I can't help but wonder if you're not using a derivative. Because FreeBSD itself includes a default file in the base system with one option which allows you to hide other uid's.
  • SirDice
    Yes, unless you put it in /etc/sysctl.conf. But like I said, use gateway_enable instead.
  • SirDice
    /boot/loader.conf ;) And as far as I know OpenSSL uses crypto and crypto will automatically use aesni if it's available. There should be no need for OpenSSL to "talk" to aesni directly.
  • SirDice
    Yes. It's the only way to tune kernel parameters.
  • SirDice
    Don't set this. Use gateway_enable="YES" in rc.conf (it does the exact same thing).

    SirDice replied to the thread CentOS 5.5 in bhyve?.
    I'm not sure if CentOS 5 already was able to work with virtio devices. This might be the reason why it's crashing, the CentOS 6 template uses virtio-net and virtio-blk. I would try changing the disk emulation to ahci-hd first.
