What Version of GhostBSD Am I Running?[edit]

  • Post by ericbsd » Mon Jun 01, 2020 7:44 pm on the GhostBSD Forum:

This would be the best way to determine the os version in the future.
I am looking to update the os version from:

How to pack a FreeBSD installation image with custom content[edit]

Packmule packs a FreeBSD installation image with custom content, making it useful for generating install images with all your normal utilities included. The added packages are installed along with the regular contents of FreeBSD. Generated images have the form FreeBSD-*-packed.iso. Installation can proceed as normal with the packed software showing up on the newly installed system alongside the FreeBSD base.

How to get some information about your running system[edit]

  • Get some system information, kernel version, release date by using sysctl
  • With

uname -a
You get: FreeBSD yourname.ghostbsd-pc.home 12.1-STABLE FreeBSD 12.1-STABLE GENERIC amd64
It is a summary of kernel information, you can get with sysctl NAME.

Some tips if you try to set up dualboot[edit]

Eric Turgeon, [19.03.20 21:29] till 19.03.20 21:36] on Telegram

  • Grub on linux does not see FreeBSD same for Grub on FreeBSD it does not see Linux.
  • The best thing I have come up with is Refind, but it only work with efi.
  • You can set up Grub to config file to add GhostBSD, but it is diferent on MBR, GPT, UEFI, legacy boot
  • If you google it for FreeBSD you will find the way you need to set it.

Lucy Randall, [20.03.20 00:57] till [20.03.20 01:10]on Telegram

  • Refind is pretty easy.
  • Copy "loader.efi" to the folder: /EFI/freebsd/ in the ESP partition.
  • For a temporary solution.
  • To make it permanently available use EFIFS's UFS2 driver, place it in the "/EFI/refind/driver_x64", and edit the edit the "refind.conf" to distinguish which "/boot/*.efi" should be loaded and visible at boot.
  • Don't know the exact configuration, but that's the gist.

Installing and Setting up Linux Steam on GhostBSD[edit]

Use Software Station or pkg command to install linux-steam-utils.

for package:

sudo pkg install linux-steam-utils

If you are using an Nvidia GPU, install the linux-nvidia-libs for the driver you use.

Create a new user account with adduser dedicated for gaming. Do not add it to the wheel group for security reasons.


Please, consider setting up a dedicated OS user account for Steam.
Otherwise, each and every Steam game will have unrestricted access to your files.
If you really couldn't care less, you can suppress this message with
--allow-stealing-my-passwords,-browser-history-and-ssh-keys flag.

Make sure all those lines are in /etc/fstab and reboot:

procfs      /proc      procfs    rw    0  0
linprocfs    /compat/linux/proc  linprocfs  rw    0  0
tmpfs /compat/linux/dev/shm tmpfs rw,mode=1777 0 0
linsysfs    /compat/linux/sys   linsysfs rw  0 0
fdesc        /dev/fd            fdescfs  rw  0 0

After rebooting login to your new user open a terminal and run steam-install and steam. Steam will take some time to set up and update. After you are good to go to play some games like CS:GO and so on.


Question regarding config file of "fish" (shell)[edit]

In which config file would I define the path to a "bin" directory in my home (e.g. ~/bin/tldr)?

Eric Turgeon, [04.06.20 18:49] on telegram

Pino Cuccaro, [05.06.20 11:26] an telegram
I preferred not to change the system-wide config file /etc/login.conf

I solved my issue by creating this file

an putting in this line:

set -g PATH /sbin /bin /usr/sbin /usr/bin /usr/games /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/bin /usr/home/<myuser>/bin

Then restarted the shell and it works.

Hardware / Kernel / Driver related[edit]

How to find out if my hardware is detected[edit]

Use the dmesg command or look into the file /var/run/dmesg.boot.

How can I find out if my hardware is supported[edit]

How to get information about loaded modules into the kernel[edit]

  • You get some information with the command kldstat
  • The kldstat utility displays the status of any files dynamically linked into the kernel. More information on FreeBSD

How to get information about loadable kernel modules[edit]

  • Loadable kernel modules related to hardware, firmware, graphics driver. and virtual machines you will find in the directory of your system: /boot/modules/ and /boot/kernel/

All files end with .ko.

How to load kernel modules[edit]

Once the machine has booted, you may load a module with the command kldload, unload with kldunload and list with kldstat.
Modules can also be loaded from the loader before the kernel starts, automatically if you makes an entry in the /boot/loader.conf.
For example:

Radeon Mobility HD 4200: Invisible Mouse Cursor[edit]

Unread post by sweeney » Tue Feb 04, 2020 4:46 am GhostBSD Forum

"I have an interesting issue. When I boot into GhostBSD 20.01 on my old Toshiba Satelitte, BSD does detect and uses the AMD Radeon Mobility 4200HD chipset (RS880) sucessfully, but I have a missing mouse cursor. You are still able to click and move the cursor, but it rather difficult to use as you cannot see it current location. I installed GhostBSD using VESA mode and then installed the radeonkms driver using pkg. I have added kld_list="/boot/modules/radeonkms.ko" to rc.conf using sysrc but xorg does not use the driver. The driver seems loading as the console changes screen resolution but xorg does not recognise it. So currently I stuck at a lower screen resolution and without hardware acceleration. The FreeBSD forums do mention a similar issue but I cannot get xorg to use the radeonkms driver in order to try the workaround. Can I edit the live ISO to try the workaround and reinstall? ... ter.70572/ ... ?id=237642

I managed to get it working.

I had to change the /etc/X11/xorg.conf from "VESA" to "radeon" under the Section "Device" and rebooted. Done!

As per the following post: ... 7958#p7958":

How to install driver to graphic card Park (Mobility Radeon HD 5430/5450/5470)[edit]

Post by sweeney » Tue Feb 04, 2020 5:31 am on GhostBSD Forum:

"I've got mine working! Make sure that have the drm-kmod package installed (of which you may already have). Run the following commands as root:

pkg install drm-kmod

This should make sure that drivers are installed. Being a Radeon Mobilty HD 7000 and earlier, we need to set to set the radeondms driver to load at startup:

sysrc kld_list="/boot/modules/radeonkms.ko"

Next edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf so the "Device" section looks like this:

  • Section "Device"
  • Identifier "Card0"
  • Driver "radeon"
  • EndSection

Note: It is better to move or delete the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and force xorg to auto-detect. Now reboot. If the driver is loading at startup, you will see the console output change screen resolution before xorg starts. Note the screen resolution will have not changed, but you should be able to go to System => Preferences => Hardware => Displays, and if xorg is using the right driver, you should be able to set the desired resolution. I hope this helps"

How to Disable Your Lenovo Trackpad[edit]

FreeBSD: Disable Your Lenovo Trackpad

And for my webcam to work in the internet browser, how do I do it?[edit]

Firstly, weI would suggest installing webcamoid to confirm your camera works as expected.

sudo pkg install webcamoid

Then select, "Applications" -> "Sound & Video" -> "Webcamoid"

If webcamoid crashes, it is likely your webcam is not recognized.

You'll likely need to make the /boot/devices.hints writable, and then add additional entries to get your webcam recognized. It is similar to adding audio entries for apple laptops. Which entries you require depends on model.
