    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 21 of 30

    Tonight I dive into one of the most essential pieces of software I make use of on all my Linux machines: the Citrix Receiver client. The software was quite a trial tribulation to nail down the proper steps for a cohesive install process on Linux, so I wasn’t too happy to dig into even more […]

    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 20 of 30

    Broke away from family festivities tonight with enough time to finish up looking at KDE for FreeBSD.  Time to get down to it and see how KDE performs looks, and acts on my FreeBSD install compared to my past Linux experience, in tonight’s FreeBSD Challenge.

    FreeBSD Challenge Day 19 of 30

    Busy busy busy is all I can say lately.  Writing for Muktware, travelling, and other preoccupations have slowed down some writing and taken away time, but I’m still here to rock out folks.  I finally wanted to get around to installing the KDE4 port for FreeBSD and seeing how it fared to other KDE implementations […]

    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 18 of 30

    Today I wanted to finally get around to fixing my broken docbook ports as well as take a look at KDE. Who know what else I’ll get my grimy hands on in today’s entry of the FreeBSD Challenge.

    FreeBSD Challenge Day 17 of 30

    Tonight I booted up the VM, only to see ntpd failing, and errors in my hostname configuration and net connection.  Drat!  A quick reboot and I was away.  Tonight I wanted to check out how KDE fared on FreeBSD, how up to date it was, and how different it seemed from Linux offerings.  But, in […]

    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 16 of 30

    Today,  I took a look at setting up a jail on BSD, and how it may compare to chroot, which I use now.  Is it similar, wildly different, or more secure?  How hard was it to setup?  Read on!

    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 13 of 30

    Oh no! The number 13!  True to the bad omen of the number, today was a bit of a wreck, and I’ll explain why.  A lot of what I talk about can usually be averted by just admitting you don’t know everything (me!), and to take up the PC-BSD banner.  Why continue then?  Because I […]

    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 12 of 30

    Tonight I continue my upgrade from FreeBSD 9.x to the 10.x release.  Hopefully things goo smoothly!  Also, I try to come up with some sort of gameplan for the rest of my challenge.

    FreeBSD Challenge: Day 11 of 30

      In today’s toils and tribulations of BSD, I am going to do a live upgrade of the FreeBSD 9.x  release to the 10.x release.  Normally, I like to re-image non-rolling releases, but since there is a clear mechanism, and this is on a Virtual Machine, I figured why not?  I would consider FreeBSD to […]

  •   It’s about time I got back to digging in FreeBSD.  Life has been very busy the last few weeks, and after rotting my brain on SteamOS gaming and writing for a while, it’s time to see the challenge to the end.  Hopefully I can find a few key areas to explore that I haven’t […]
