    Thanks for pointing out the '-tui' option.... simplifies things quite a bit. I tried running gdb under emacs but it seems too complicated. I guess I need to brush on emacs to make the most of the combination.

    We know a lot about custom apps, so if you tell us what it is, we may have a solution of some description.

    Have you tried gdb -tui? It gives it more of an interactive interface (still in a terminal though which is a massive benefit). Otherwise there is Insight (https://sourceware.org/insight/screenshots.php) that looks good but I have never actually...

    You could also use FreeBSD's implementation of VirtualBox and run OpenBSD in it. (Untested by me on an NVidia video, only used console). There's also bhyve, which I've not really used, FreeBSD's own virtualization platform. Or any minimal...

    Many thanks, that did the trick.

    The -tui option in GDB should still be fine for that. Hmm, you might need to try the others. I have seen an assembly listing in Code::Blocks before so I believe it can do it. I would assume that Insight would. Other than that, you may want to...

    It's not exactly possible to comment on that without having seen the Makefile. Still, FreeBSD uses make whereas Linux often relies on gmake, so you could try using that. See devel/gmake.

    Because of the NVIDIA GPU, you might have to make do with FreeBSD and the binary blob driver as the only choice (personally, the one I would go for anyway ;). Or if you really have your heart set on OpenBSD, then perhaps is a base Windows...

    Reboot the machine. A uname -K shows the running kernel, a freebsd-version -k looks at the strings of the installed kernel. If you haven't rebooted these two won't match up because the old kernel is still active.

    Usually "Gigabit" is used to describe NIC interfaces (10/100/1000). Wireless cards are grouped by 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n/802.11ac standards. FreeBSD Handbook section 31.3 802.11n/802.11ac support 5Ghz and are "fastest". You can sort through...

    I'm asking you because your Casa System modem behaves strangely. Do you know how your IP address block is routed? Normally the network mask is either 255.255.255.240 for providing of 14 hosts or 255.255.255.248 for 6 hosts. That's why i'm curious...

    For what it's worth; is s3 suspend the chosen choice in your bios ACPI options? Also, in it's current state; does unplugging, then plugging the USB keyboard/mouse wake it up?
