We are encouraging users to use sysrc to add lines to rc.conf. You also need to use <screen> (the user should do something) instead of <programlisting> (just showing what a file looks like). The line would look like this:

sysrc create_args_wlan0="country <replaceable>AT</replaceable> regdomain <replaceable>ETSI</replaceable>"

albert_fsfe.org marked 6 inline comments as done.
  • fixed spelling mistakes
  • use command tag
  • use sysrc & screen instead of programlisting
