 Have you encountered error like this when install kde on FreeBSD?

sysctl: unknown oid 'compat.linux.osrelease'

linuxulator is not (kld)loaded, exiting

 If it's so, then just do like this

#kldload linux

But it tell that no linux module on the system. Well, just install it

cd /usr/src/sys/modules/linux

make install clean

Ehm, there's more error

compat.linux.osrelease: 2.6.16 is not supported freebsd

apparently we have to edit the .conf manually

# printf "compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.18\n" >> /etc/sysctl.conf

# sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.18

# pkg install emulators/linux_base-c6

OK, back to kde install sequence, :)

# pkg install xorg

# pkg install nvidia-driver

# pkg install virtuoso

# pkg install kde

# pkg install gtk-oxygen-engine

# pkg install kde-gtk-config

Add to /boot/loader.conf:



Add to /etc/rc.conf:




Load new kernel modules:

# kldload linux

# kldload nvidia

Create ~/.xinitrc for KDE (just this single line here):

exec /usr/local/kde4/bin/startkde

And we are good to go, :)

My FreeBSD Installation LeftOver

Didn't really remember the chronology. It use Parallel Desktop. It use VirtualBox too.

Tak ada yang berbeda antara FreeBSD ini dengan yang lain, jika telah terbiasa dengan Linux atau Unix lain, bahkan Apple OS X, maka kita dapat melihat bahwa Beastie ini (nama logo BSD) sama dengan semua sistem itu. 

The Rock Solid UNIX. :)

Gnome 3 on Freebsd (self documentation)

install it using

#pkg install gnome3


proc           /proc       procfs  rw  0   0



The menu is missing

install Parallel Tools

#cd /usr/ports/emulators/parallels-tools/ && make install clean

but it need kernel source. 

Install via svn

#pkg install devel/subversion

# svnlite checkout /usr/src

run it again

#cd /usr/ports/emulators/parallels-tools/ && make install clean

Playing with FreeBSD

Got boot-only iso and managed to install it on my Parallel Desktop on my Macbook Air with Yosemite. 

Of course it just CLI.

Strange, the root shell have tab completion feature, but the normal users didn’t.


The answer come from 2003 and 2005 Mailing-List, :)

To enable tab completion
$chsh -s /bin/tcsh
(it didn’t enable tab completion actually , it change shell with tab completion feature :) )
We could so use

$chsh -s /bin/csh 

tcsh shell support tab completion too.

Another thing is, normal user can’t use sudo command (because it’s not installed, :P )
So,  install sudo first (I used pkg command instead of pkg_add)
#pkg install sudo 
edit /usr/local/etc/sudoers as root and visudo command (don’t edit it using regular vi editor, or ANY editor)


add this

username ALL=(ALL) ALL

and life become more easier...

FreeBSD on VBox with OS X Host

I use boot-only-iso 64 bit and the problem instantly arise because of my impatience.

Yup, I use 32 bit architecture on OS version setting (the first prompt in virtual box when we create new virtual machine). So change to 64-bit solved the problem, in some case, delete the vm and create whole new vm guarantee it.

Nothing special on the installation so, here is it:
