comment Debian Jessie bind9 permission problem
Is named being chroot'ed? The default chroot for named on FreeBSD is /var/named; so the actual path to the config file is /var/named/etc/namedb/named.conf but it's specified in the rc var as /etc/namedb/named.conf.

comment isc-dhcp-server [ok] and running but doesnt seem to work at all
It might be firewall. IPv4 bootpc and bootps packets are weird. They are all udp and initial requests (non-renewal) have an initial source address of 0.0.0.0; so the only way you can tell source with tcpdump is by looking at the MAC.

comment SSH Public Key authentication - works only after a physical login
Try putting sshd in debug mode. Usually this spews to the current terminal; but in your case you might try: /usr/bin/sshd -d 2>&1 > ssh_debug.session. sshd will tell you what files it's trying to open and whether there are issues. Please note that sshd in debug will only answer one connection and then die; so be careful not to shoot yourself in the foot.

comment How to install FreeBSD 10 from USB Hard drive?
Good question. I've been using FBSD since '98 (I'm old). Way-back-when, FBSD was installed from floppy wherein the installer used ftp to pull down the various tar-balls (pretty slow). I really haven't used that feature in many years, but it might actually still be there... Your short answer is: "yes, it can be done." The longer answer is: "the installer is a long-neglected piece of code that no one uses much. There does exist a carefully pre-cooked version of the installer for CD/DVD and it can probably just be copied to a drive and launched. However, I have never seen a recipe for such."

comment Port 22 connection refused
You're right, but "connection refused" precludes ssh, scp, and sftp.

comment Port 22 connection refused
tdpdump or tshark is your friend. Run it at both ends to confirm first that the packets are leaving and then second to confirm that they arrive. If the packets arrive, is there a response and does the response arrive back where the whole thing started. Checking this will give you a lot of clues.

comment Can emacs render downloaded html files?
Is it the same as browsing by URL? Strictly speaking, no. Nowadays many (most?) pages are rendered somewhat dynamically. Interpretive code reads databases, and/or javascript modifies right on your browser to include fonts, what your screen size is, check licensing... That being said, a copy saved from Firefox should be pretty much a snapshot of what you saw at the moment the page was saved. (qualified enough?)

comment How to set the prompt and tab-title on Gnome-Shell (Gnome 3, centos 7)
I use printf "\033]0;hi\007" embedded in a little function: title () { printf "\033]0;${1}\007" }

comment Seeing SSH debug messages in Terminal/console
Check to see whether there is a logging specification for root. The logs may be appearing on the console simply because root is logged in.

comment Will mount search fstab for a best match?
I apologize, I'm not being helpful. The above example works for external drives on FreeBSD; but typically usdb is also doing an automount for me. Frankly, with the LABEL designations you have, I would have expected it to work.
