Re: is pf firewall installed in GhostBSD

There are plenty of webs and some books about how to configure PF and it's my firewall of choice.

Re: NVIDIA Madness on 11.1 [SOLVED]

My laptop is Optimus too and I must disable Intel card in Bios, letting only the Nvidia card activated. In this way Xorg is able to start using nvidia. If I let both Nvidia and Intel cards activated in Bios, then Xorg refuses to start (with a custom xorg.conf prepared for nvidia). It seems that with...

Mount Phone in GhostBSD via MTP

This is useful to get access to your phone device mounted as a MTP device using FUSE-MTPFS. In case your phone has a SD CARD it would be accessible too (both phone emulated filesystem and SD filesystem are accessible at once). You'll need FUSE. In /boot/loader.conf: # Filesystems in Userspace fuse_l...

Re: Equalizer

I was partially successful trying to run pulseaudio equalizer in GhostBSD. It's coded in bash and python and uses Ladspa MultibandEQ. This equalizer loads the ladspa MultibandEQ module in pulseaudio, and provides a graphical interface with eq bands as an interface for MBEQ control parameters. Everyt...

Re: Equalizer

Yes ASX, you're wright. I don't like pulseaudio too much, but I guess is better than compile players from ports to work with Jack, for example, and get Jack working. Now pulseaudio works more or less well, not when the project started (I guess the guy who made pulseaudio is the same who coded system...

Re: Equalizer

Besides the previous configuration with the freebsd native equalizer a more brilliant sound can be obtained using LADSPA plugins. By default GhostBSD (please, let me know if I'm wrong) uses pulseaudio. A pulseaudio instance should be running once you login in xfce/mate/.... If so, then follow the ne...

Re: Upgrade from 10.4 to 11.1 : a couple of things

Yes, using ZFS would be great upgrade GhostBSD cloning your boot environment and go back if something breaks. I don't use ZFS right now because its memory consumption and because UFS2 have better performance. Maybe when I buy a new 16G laptop :D. I'd rather prefer to be able to choose between UFS2 a...

Re: Upgrade from 10.4 to 11.1 : a couple of things

Yes, but if no setup is done, maybe some users, not aware of, could have problems with their wifi setup. They could claim about a ghostbsd/freebsd issue. I did it in a test laptop, but if it were my main system, and no other one was available, I couldn't connect to the internet and find a solution. ...

Upgrade from 10.4 to 11.1 : a couple of things

I've just finished the upgrade to 11.1 from 10.4 following the freebsd method. I've found a couple of things don't work as expected. Maybe it could be useful for other users or taken into account for ghostbsd new installs. 1) wlan0 doesn't attach to my wifi router. This is because wlan0 device is cr...
