FreeBSD 14 shared object libssl.so.111 not found

FreeBSD 14.0-RELEASE just got relesed at the end of last month, and I wanted to upgrade my NAS server running FreeBSD 13.x-RELEASE to 14.0. Using the installation instruction from [1], I was able to upgrade smoothly without any issues. Here are the steps: # freebsd-update fetch # freebsd-update install # freebsd-update upgrade -r 14.0-RELEASE # freebsd-update install Reboot: # reboot After rebooting, freebsd-update(8)[2] needs to be run again to install the new userland components:...

How to configure IPv6 on FreeBSD via SLAAC

I recently got IPv6 running at home, with most devices including my iPhone happily get an IPv6 assigned. My NAS running FreeBSD13.2 currently only has an IPv4 assigned, so I’m going to configure IPv6 for it too. I’m still new to IPv6. The way I have it setup on my router, running OPNsense, is to set the “Router Advertisements” to “Unmanaged” with DHCPv6 disabled. “Unmanaged” for SLAAC (A flag), and SLAAC stands for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration....

List Block Devices on FreeBSD

Recently, I found out that the ZFS pool on a FreeBSD is running out of space. There is no option to clean up this storage, but there are spare disks. So the next logical thing to do is to add 2 extra disks to the existing (mirror) ZFS pool. This FreeBSD server is a virtual machine (VM), and after attaching 2 physical disks to this VM, I had difficulty identifying these disks....
