    Hi, I am using FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE. With top I noticed a particular PID with very high CPU usage. ps faxuww shows this: root 27155 5.0 0.1 32956 20640 - D 03:01 15:55.64 find -sx / /mail /usr/home /usr/src /var/mail /dev/null (...

    Unfortunately, looks like there are even more bugs in 12.1 with VNET jails. The system panics during jails stop.

    userxbw, There is an executable called "file". Use that followed by the path and name of the file and it will tell you if it's a text file or binary.

    So-called file extensions (.jpg, .doc, etc) are a relic from the old DOS era (8.3 file naming). Unix(-like) systems have never relied on them. Heck, even Windows doesn't actually use them any more, although it still insists on that naming convention.

    Any file can be opened and read with fopen (as long as you have read access to it of course). The file's actual content is completely irrelevant. What determines the type of content is dictated by the first few bytes, generally called the...

    Have you tried setting milteropendkim_socket in rc.conf instead?

    Why do you think it's called "single user mode"? There is only a single user allowed on the system, no login required, and that user is root.

    Because the port/package is named that way. It's just part of the name, it has nothing to do with the FreeBSD minor version you actually have. To be honest I think the minor version shouldn't be part of the name, as it's intended to be used on...

    I used to use Draytek but have become a fan on Mikrotik for small office or home use now. Something like the well named RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN would be a great router for a FTTH connection, isn't badly priced compared to "higher end" brands and...

    Look into creating a custom install with bsdinstall. And also pxeboot. There used to be an article about setting up a "Jumpstart" server but it's rather old. It may still provide lots of clues though. Don't look too hard at the details, make sure...

    No need for all that, you can simply boot to single user mode, mount the filesystems read/write and change root's password.

    Is there a command I can run to determine the type of memory that isinstalled on the system? HDT does a pretty good job. I'm hoping to add some memory to a system and want to be sure I get the right type.

    Leave resolv.conf as is, assume your DHCP server is configured correctly and the information it's giving is correct. Run host pkg.freebsd.org. If that provides an answer then your DNS resolving works.
