I guess You intend to let me go crazy completely...
On GhostBSD 10.3 I kept FreeBSD repos where s no functioning Chromium anymore.
And on 11.1 after Gimp 'disappeared' and update station appeared there s no Libreoffice anymore either.
When will these construction sites stop?

Ok, I hope Libreoffice will return, too.
I ll do a fresh new installation this evening and maybe found a more stable way for wlan.
Will tell You more.

Hi there

Well, as the problem(s) continue with non-working/disappeared packages, unstable and weak wlan as well as non-existing addons for Mozilla browsers on BSD base I decided to put a Windows 10/openSUSE Linux dual-boot system up for most work but continue with GhostBSD on my netbook for some while.
There the 10.3 version with the FreeBSD repos works after the last major upd. pretty well, except for a non-working chromium.
But a complete office, my fave Seamonkey combination as well as MywebSQL and stable wlan are important for me for productive reasons.
So I ll keep in contact for BSD developments, hope for a used Lenovo laptop soon and will try again then.
Thanks for all the help but it s urgent now to get a stable dual boot working for my job preparations as well.
And all configs for three different wlan chipsets did not bring the stability I need to work from my room about 5 meters away from router.
Merry Christmas to everyone and til soon.

Best
Achim

Solution update source files for ath and recompile
https://hk.saowen.com/a/6a6dbbadbcab8be ... b78753ba53

I could track 11-stable, but I want to stay as close as possible to the current -RELEASE so that future security updates are as predictable as possible from a feature-set perspective. In light of this requirement, we check out the 11.1-RELEASE branch:

# svnlite checkout https://svn.freebsd.org/base/releng/11.1/ /usr/src

### I find no file "/usr/src/head" directory to change into here. I am stumped to find solution. Maybe run kernel rebuild statement below?
# cd /usr/src/head/sys/dev/ath
# svnlite merge -r 305614:306323 https://svn.freebsd.org/base/head/sys/dev/ath/ .

Create a custom build configuration and kick off a build:

# cd /usr/src/sys/amd64/conf
# cp GENERIC ARCBSD
# make buildkernel KERNCONF=ARCBSD

I give this as a hint. I am still working through these steps and have not verified each command line statement.

Hi wb7...

well, after lots of experimenting I must say, with a "user friendly system" I don t expect to start kernel compiling and havent done so for years anyway.
But thanks for the hints.
Right now my main working system is a OpenSUSE Linux 42.3 and I work on GhostBSD 11.1 via ext. USB disk.
I hope, some more wlan chips will work in the future and esp. the package management will become more stable, as it was with 10.3.
That s what caused me to work mainly on my netbook for now with Ghost 10.3 and with Linux on my main machine but that could change again later this year..

best
Achim

Hi Folks

I just made the last repository upd and have now found a stable way for wlan with GhostBSD 11.1:
found an old Dlink GWL-122 with Ralink 2070 chipset that gives stable internet now.
So older Ralink and Realtek seems to work best for now!
if I get through this horrific parametric stuff for the headset now, I d have 95% of all done.
will try this next weekend.
But I ll keep it on ext. harddrive til I m sure I ll switch completely to win10 & ghostBSD dual-boot! ;)
it s still some way to go and my main backbone will be the netbook with GhostBSD 10.3 for some while.

cheers
Achim
