Re: NetworkMgr for GhostBSD 11.1 proper setup to use? [SOLVED]

Which kernel module should be loaded? Is there a definitive and up-to-date documentation for NetworkMgr anywhere? I'm trying to set it up on FreeBSD 11-STABLE, but I don't see any man pages.

Re: ZFS or UFS ?

I didn't run any scientific performance tests on ZFS, just my casual observations from running FreeBSD 10.x as a workstation. If I do some intensive tasks like processing video or raw photos, copying large sets of files around, etc - ZFS slows down with time.

Re: Installation report (X11/ZFS problems inside)

For me ZFS is too much resource hungry and slow for a simple desktop system. Its killer features are more suited for servers, I think.

Re: ZFS or UFS ?

In my experience ZFS is fast right after reboot. But then the longer I work in the system the slower it gets. I suspect ZFS slows down when internal caches are filled up. I don't see this effect with UFS.

Re: ZFS or UFS ?

ZFS is powerful, but takes more resources, it is more suitable for larger servers. UFS is small and fast, excellent for desktops.

Re: Latest And Best Intel Graphics

Yes, NVidia cards are usually well supported. I would further research for concrete card if you are going to buy.

Re: Latest And Best Intel Graphics

FreeBSD CURRENT (version 11) has initial support for Intel graphics. But the max resolution is HD only, anything higher is not supported.

Re: A way to change QT fonts

I use Mate on FreeBSD 10-STABLE. Fonts on qbittorent were too tiny for my eyes. I fixed that by installing qt4-qtconfig, running it and selecting font size. You can also select a nice QT theme.

Re: Filesystem choice

In my experience (which is shared by some others) UFS SUJ may lead to instability. Disable journal, enable soft updates and you'll be fine.
