... As well as the shitty & useless Linux-advice on StackOverflow & Co echo-chambered and propagated by leech-sites all over the internet: "Z doesn't work" - "try A", "try B", "try C", "try D", "try E", Try and effing Try, until "Now it works" OR "Silence". Whatever random shit that happened to be the last "try" in the chain becomes "The Solution" to the problem where the cause was never discovered.

Gone are the happy old days of rational thinking and check-lists: "Z probably doesn't work because Y isn't running or maybe Q needs to be installed. First check Y, then ...."

FreeBSD is much better than Linux on this point (and many others).
