Configuring web server with intermediate SSL certificates

If you received intermediate certificates and you need to install them you should simply concatenate them in one file in reversed trust delegating order. So if trust is delegated like this:

root -> intermediate1 -> intermediate2 -> your-site

in pem file certificates should be in this order:

When USB devices don't run properly in VirtualBox guest

Since FreeBSD is not officially supported by Oracle, they don't make extension pack for it. For this reason all USB 2 and later devices will most likely fail in guest operating systems with weird errors (devices are recognized but they do not work later). Workaround for this is to force device to 1.1 within host operating system and only then to use them in guest OS. To accomplish this:
- disconnect device
- execute sysctl hw.usb.ehci.no_hs=1 as root
- connect device
- map it inside VirtualBox for guest OS to see

Making GNOME 3 usable under FreeBSD

As usable as it could be after their developers got infected by that brain parasite (it is funny how functionality-wise pretty much everything is done in wrong way).

Plugins needed/enabled:

make clean
done

Compiling latest versions of monodevelop on FreeBSD

Clone their repository from git (tarballs created by them fail way too often)

git clone https://github.com/mono/monodevelop.git

HP printer with FreeBSD

Install /usr/ports/print/hplip-plugin (in the past mirror for that one was quite unstable so it was difficult to download all files needed). After that install /usr/ports/print/cups-filters as well (have no clue why they are removed from normal cups installation but without them you might have lot of errors similar to "Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Print-Job". Printer should be working after this.

If skype 4.2 doesn't work with FreeBSD

and if there are lot of messages similar to
kernel: linux: pid 64067 (skype): linux_sys_futex: op FUTEX_WAIT_REQUEUE_PI not implemented

remove port /usr/ports/audio/linux-c6-pulseaudio-libs and make sure /usr/ports/audio/linux-c6-alsa-plugins-oss is installed (last one might require tweaking /compat/linux/etc/alsa/pcm/pcm-oss.conf)
