I have a recently-acquired, refurbished Dell Precision 7520; I have been able to install both FreeBSD and TrueOS on it, and the OSs run OK… but the mouse/cursor doesn’t move, and the wireless NiC:
none7@pci0:2:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x03101028 chip=0x003e168c rev=0x32 hdr=0x00
vendor = ‘Qualcomm Atheros’
device = ‘QCA6174 802.11atc Wireless Network Adapter’
class = network
isn’t recognized (in either FreeBSD or TrueOS – above was from TrueOS).
What’s currently installed self-identifies as:
FreeBSD d179.catwhisker.org 12.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #0 7ad4fada6(HEAD): Thu Aug 2 11:37:15 EDT 2018 root@hydra:/usr/obj/root/jenkins/workspace/TrueOS_-Stable-_Complete/TrueOS_Stable/amd64.amd64/sys/GENERIC amd64 1200065 1200065
I believe Dell offers the 7520 running Linux.
[I have been running FreeBSD on a Dell Precision M4800 for about 3.5 years now; I’d like to migrate to a newer machine without losing screen real estate. I’m keeping the M4800 running by swapping parts…]
Any suggestions? Thanks!
