So, after several attempts at installing FreeBSD and Dragonfly BSD (and two previous failed attempts at getting TrueOS into working order) I have learned enough to get this far - TrueOS installed. Desktop in reasonable shape. Some extra apps installed.
(Started using Linux in 2002 and used it mostly through to late 2015. Spent two and a bit years using Macs, then back to Linux earlier this year when the last Mac died. I’m not a programmer or a sysadmin. Just a power user with a hunger for the not so well known.)
Even with the nv driver (rock solid performance under Linux) I have shocking screen tearing when moving windows. Last time I chose the nvidia drivers during first boot after install, it resulted in a grey screen that I couldn’t get past.
Is there’s a “step by step guide” for noobs like me?
Apart from Thunderbird, are there any mail clients capable of multiple accounts? Trojita seems to be able to do only one.
Audacious and xmms report as “unmaintained”. Are they dangerous or just obsolete now? What replaces them?
I have a 1TB ext4 HD in this pc. How I mount it correctly? I presume I can add such a line to fstab? (Assuming BSD uses fstab).
Any general tips/advice/sources would be most welcomed. Now I have the screen in a half decent state I can start on the handbook.
