This driver also supports target mode for Fibre Channel cards. This support may be enabled by setting the desired role of the core via the LSI Logic firmware utility that establishes what roles the card can take on – no separate compilation is required.
This document contains the hardware compatibility notes for FreeBSD 11. It lists the hardware platforms supported by FreeBSD, as well as the various types of hardware devices (storage controllers, network interfaces, and so on), along with known working instances of these devices.
Once installed, activate plugins as root. It supports the very newest version of Windows Flash, freeing us from the limitations of Adobe’s Linux development, and also supports Shockwave, Silverlight, Unity, Widevine, and more. It requires a special patched version of Wine, emulators/wine-staging or emulators/i386-wine-staging. A newer and arguably better solution is emulators/pipelight, a Wine-based wrapper for Windows browsers plugins.
I sometimes tether my desktop to my Android phone using a run B/G USB interface. It’s as simple as defining a new virtual wlan interface on run0, configuring wpa_supplicant for the WPA pre-shared key, and specifying the SSID and encryption standard (WPA). For WiFi configuration, see the wireless networking section of the Handbook.
My estimate is that more than 90% of the videos I watch online are hosted by Youtube, and that’s html5 anyway. The other option is using pipelight, which is apparently some sort of Wine wrapper. ) that doesn’t work properly, if at all, is Adobe Flash. Doesn’t seem to work very well on 64bit though. According to various articles out there, two options are apparently available to make it work: The first is using a terribly outdated flash player plugin (really, given the massive amount of security issues with Flash, who would want that. If I want to watch actual films, I use my “smart” telly and sit on the couch rather than at my desk 🙂 (So don’t ask me if Netflix works on FreeBSD. I wasn’t keen enough on Flash to spend time on making it work. Another piece of software (or can I say piece of crap.
Your screen will flash while Compiz and gtk-window-decorator initialize and replace Marco, MATE’s default window manager. Open the “Run” box with Alt+F2 and execute compiz-manager. Compiz-manager is a script for detecting and using the proper compiz options for your video hardware.
We are still planning on version 1. First, I would like to thank everyone for their patience as we continue working toward the first non-beta release of the Lumina desktop. 0 Release Schedule or earlier), but some issues have come to light that required we adjust our feature list for version 1. 0 getting released later this year (aligning with the FreeBSD 11.
FreeBSD’s Linuxulator allows it to run Linux application binaries using system call translation. Desktop users will find it useful for running the handful of proprietary but necessary programs that are available for Linux but not for FreeBSD, such as Adobe Flash Player.
Although it’s a household name for so many, the developers realized this was a tim e for a new name that would better convey our message. PC-BSD® doesn’t reflect server or embedded well. Subsequently, we will be able to convey our brand message in a better and more unified way. ” One important lesson learned from going to conferences is that people can have a hard tim e remembering the acronym that makes up our name, which is not a good place to start with marketing a product. Lead developer Kris Moore had this to say: “We’ve already been using TrueOS® for the server side of PC-BSD®, and it made sense to unify the names. Many are very familiar with the name PC-BSD® and may be wondering why we changed the name. We’re confident the TrueOS® name will allow people to quickly identify the project. TrueOS® Desktop/Server/Embedded can be real products, avoids some of the alphabet soup, and gives us a more catchy name.
Five years ago I did some Linux gaming tests on FreeBSD within FreeBSD: A Faster Platform For Linux Gaming Than Linux. I wanted to do some modern tests atop the latest FreeBSD/PC-BSD code and the latest NVIDIA driver. For those that don’t know, FreeBSD boasts a Linux binary compatibility initiative.
If all seems well, add compiz-manager as a new startup application (in Settings > Preferences > Startup Applications), then change MATE’s window manager preference in DConf:. If your windows are missing titlebars, double-check you’ve enabled “Window Decoration” in ccsm.
Conf file referenced above should fix the tearing issues. The drawback is a slight penalty in performance but for every day desktop use, this shouldn't really be noticed at all. It may be noticed . Enabling the options "ForceFullCompositionPipeline" and "TripleBuffer" in the / usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.
