And, again, I hit something which is causing massive disk performance issues. That, and suspend/resume does not work on either laptop.
I would try to debug the issues, but that means learning a whole new set of tools, and I will not have time for a while. Next week, I am in week long meetings which will run late every day, and then I have to finish writing and present a training class the last week of the month. The hour or two I can spare will be far better spent for me by backup, re-installing ArchLinux than by starting to learn the tools. Yes, a bit of a cop-out, but I need the machines to do what I need to do. I will keep the servers FreeBSD, however, as it works great there.
I will revisit the issue of FreeBSD on the laptops when I either get new kit, or support for my models gets better.
