FreeBSD connect to wifi

On linux we will have network management tool as part of desktop manager. If we install FreeBSD and Mate desktop manager, such util not exist automatically. After some search found that we can use :

1. bsdconfig

2. wifimgr

Bsdconfig is cli program and after changing wifi configuration for your laptop you need to restart.

Another option is to use wifimgr. Install wifimgr using pkg install wifimgr on terminal. Wifimgr is gtk based app.

Wifimgr on action.

Good night … Bye ..


On my experiment with FreeBSD 11.1, after some time i am installing codeblocks , an IDE for creating C/C++ program. Unfortunately codeblocks didnt work (crash) on launch. Looks like some issue on wxwidget. Dunno.

After some casual browsing on FreeBSD package/ports list on the net , i found another C/C++ IDE !

It is Codelite !

pkg install codelite

Launch codelite, automatically detect clang llvm 4 available, then do some helloworld project …

FreeBSD 11.1 top

There is something catching my attention when i do top on freebsd 11.1 terminal which are additional lines for ARC like shown below.

ARC is somewhat unique to FreeBSD because of its ZFS implementation. ARC : Adaptive Replacement Cache is one of ZFS features. ARC used RAM to cache ZFS objects.
