IRC: irc.rizon.net #baot

News: http://freebsdnews.net | http://undeadly.org | http://dragonflydigest.com

Discuss FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonflyBSD, PCBSD, FreeNAS, OPNsense, etc.

Linux users feel free to ask questions! You might even get a non-troll answer.

I really would like to install FreeBSD on my X220 but the support is even shittier than Linux.

I don't want to fuck up my battery

https://wiki.freebsd.org/Laptops/Thinkpad_X220
X, T and W memepads support just about every OS you'd ever install on a modern AMD64 machine. Just note what the page says and you're good.

>laptop
go with openbsd. They generally have better laptop support.

Has anyone done Gentoo/NetBSD? I'm kind of curious, would i have access to the things i can find on linux portage? if not is it hard to run linux applications in BSD?
>>
>>52513881
get out.
>>
>>52513903
This is why BSD will never be loved
>>
>>52513881
Gentoo/NetBSD? I have to try installing this shit one day for shit and giggles.

Seriously, portage+pkgin sounds like a wonderful dream team combo. USE flags and other delicious things where you need to compile and a god tier binary package manager for most things.

Thank you anon for telling me about this wonderful project. My autism is satisfied for today.

saw this posted on a certain site that shall not be named

https://cooltrainer.org/a-freebsd-desktop-howto/

Seems like a pretty thorough guide for installing and configuring FreeBSD
>>
>>52513881
Assuming this project is in any way release-ready, the repos should contain the vast majority of whatever you might use in Linux. Most Linux programs compile just fine on other Unix-likes. NetBSD has a decent Linux binary compatibility layer for the other cases, but it's obviously not 100% reliable. I've found it better than that of FreeBSD but that's just my anecdote.
>>
>>52513370
I use several add-ons with Firefox, and I obviously download readable files such as .odt files or images.

I also use LaTeX, and I don't know if OpenBSD has an integrated text editor.

Does it have any meaning to install third-party programs on OpenBSD, from a security point of view ?

If there are tools like, at least, sandboxing to prevent programs from causing security breaches somewhere else I'd like to install it in a VM to give it a try. Thanks for your answers !
>>
>>52514197
I mean * an integrated LaTeX editor (even if I doubt there would be).

Sorry.

why is bsd better than linux?

>Does it have any meaning to install third-party programs on OpenBSD, from a security point of view ?
Like any other operating system, the more shit you install, the bigger the attack surface.

The OpenBSD team has put some measures in to terminate misbehaving programs, but it doesn't beat good sysadmin practices.

You're fine if it's for desktop use though.
>>
>>52513630
>>52513824
What about power management tools such as TLP and powertop? Plus all the ThinkPad specific shit like HDAPS, charging thresholds?
>>
>>52514905
OpenBSD has APM.

Don't know what all the other shit is.
>>
>>52513957

Same for Linux.
>>
>>52513991
Yeah that guide is pretty good.
