Submit a FreeBSD problem report

Bugs

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about a problem with FreeBSD.

This form allows you to submit Problem Reports about issues that you believe are actual bugs in either the source, the documentation, or the website itself. If you are having problems with initially installing FreeBSD, or have other questions of the form "why doesn't foo work" or "does FreeBSD work with bar", please ask these questions in the appropriate support forums; see the support page for more information.

Before filling out the form, please take the time to read the Writing FreeBSD Problem Reports guidelines. This may save you time and frustration getting help with your problem. Please check before submitting if your problem has not already been reported or has been noted in the FAQ.

Please fill out the form as completely as possible. Make sure you fill in the "Environment" field as requested with the output from the machine on which the problem occurred.

Note: copy/paste will destroy TABs and spacing, and this web form should not be used to submit code as plain text.

Please note that, unless you explicitly state otherwise, any changes you submit to the FreeBSD Project are assumed to be under the same license as FreeBSD. Also, the email address that you use will be available to the public through the web interface, so you should already have an effective spam filter in place.

If you are submitting a patch file, note that we only accept text/* and application/shar content types, and you must therefore ensure that your browser sends the correct type. If your browser does not like to do this, a good way to convince it to do so is to ensure that the file name ends with the string '.txt'.

Finally, be forewarned that this page requires that you are able to view images as a measure against abuse of the system. We regret having to have imposed this measure, but it is completely unavoidable. If you are unable to view images for any reason, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and email your problem report to the bugbusters team for submission into the bug tracking system.

Note: before hitting 'submit', please save your work. If your browser caches images, or if you take longer than 45 minutes to fill in the form, you may have a stale image shown on your page, and your submission will be rejected. Depending on your browser, you might lose work in this case. Help save yourself from this common frustration.
