Hi there,

1) the errors with OktoPkg keep comin like:

"
Updating GhostBSD repository catalogue...
pkg: Repository GhostBSD load error: access repo file(/var/db/pkg/repo-GhostBSD.sqlite) failed: No such file or directory "
have to see what s missing or maybe misconfigured but the DNS prob seems to be solved...
the internet stays tricky as well:
1st start of GhostBSD with running wlan gives me again: "server not found", a reboot of GhostBSD with running wlan and everything runs alright and very fast!?

2)with temperatures and CPU/RAM I will look this evening and see what comes out of it.
I read about the Acer E5-553G model that because of its slim design and the AMD A10 it may produce heat up to 60° underneath, so maybe this has to be cooled externally as well.....
at least the fan is running and it s not too hot!
3)
The hangs on boot loader are still there with following behaviour:
a) when 1st Win10 is started and a "reboot" done with F2 for FreeBSD later on, it hangs on the welcome screen and no countdown works.
b) if Win10 is closed with "shutdown", choosing F2 later works mostly within BSD loader but occasionally BIOS starts, so there me be still a confusion because of F2 for both BIOS entry and FreeBSD/Ghost!?
c) ending GhostBSD with "shutdown" and working again with GhostBSD session always works!
The rest looks good so far, since last major update there weren t any not-starting menu entries anymore as well!

ASX wrote:"No address record" means your dns settings are incorrect:

Likely you can successfully ping an IP address
Code: Select all
ping 8.8.8.8


but you cannot ping a URL:
Code: Select all
ping www.google.com


If that is the case, like it seems, add this to your /etc/resolv.conf:
Code: Select all
nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4


then restart the network interface:
Code: Select all
sudo netif restart
sudo routing restart


now try to use the internet ...


Hi ASX

could get along with everything so far with some setbacks on network and browsing!

1) unfortunately for the BSD version of Seamonkey there s almost nothing available, so I ll have to switch between mail by SM suite (just used to it) and browsing via Firefox and for Netflix use the Windows version of that!
2) really a pity that the Qualcomm/Atheros wlan chip isn t supported, so I have to live with a 54g mode instead of the n mode as before with my HP laptop! :(
3) tried Your nameserver entries and did the network restart but that puts the resolv.conf entries always back to the start with only nameserver 192.168.0.1 for the router.

WHAT I found out, was, that in wpa_supplicant.conf, the protocol was set to "RSN" instead of the usual "WPA" I had before. donnow, what THIS does to stability.
So far the network is very unstable, evry couple of minutes the dongle has only half the power and sometimes wlan network is completely off and has to be re-activated/enabled again!
That implicates loads of timeouts as well when browsing...
A change of USB port didn t help either.

But I can both ping ip addresses and URLs on the command line.
So network is still the main problem at the moment...

well, as there was no feedback I guess I have to live with tricky wlan support and freeBSD/Ghost, as others in the freeBSD forums tell the same....

(at the moment it works better but sometimes it helps to keep a constant ping open in a terminal, not the best way!) well, that was yesterday...
well, as even that is not stable (trying to activate wlan now for almost an hour), is there a wlan dongle one can recommend under FreeBSD/GhostBSD or is it better to run newer laptops under Linux?

cheers

well, I give it one more chance but then have to switch as I (minimum) need a working internet to have a complete system.
if neither the qualcomm nor the dlink/realtek wlan works I ll have to change to linux again. a pity.
trying now again manually loading kernel drivers and whatever but that wlan keeps comin and goin and and always dns probs with the reslov.conf ALWAYS overwritten when network restarted leaves me overchallenged here! sorry! :cry:

DHCP always rewrite resolv.conf, you can set your card to a static IP or make resolv.cong not rewritable with:
Code: Select all
chflags schg /etc/resolv.conf

ok, thx Eric!
but are there ANY experiences with working USB dongles that work stable under GhostBSD?
I d order another one if that gets me rid of the wlan problem.
I tried every step from Your FAQ as well as the kernel load & driver tipps from FreeBSD forums as well but I always loose wlan activity and/or network via networkmngr in Ghost 11.1. That was less problematic with 10.3 but will this version be supported in one or two years?

I have Belkin F5D8055 v2 that was working amazingly and lately, I did get some problem but today it looks to work fine. I think my wife laptop have Qualcomm/Atheros I could try to look but I can not wipe her Ubuntu MATE.

You can look for run device https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?que ... .1-RELEASE

Thx Eric!

I have an Acer laptop with the new Qualcomm/Atheros QCA9377ac, which isn t recognized by BSD at all.
and my Dlink dwa-131 is pretty unstable unfortunately.
