I have trouble with the package manager in GhostBSD 3.5 my sound card is a sound blaster audigy 7.1 which is not supported so I usually rebuild the kernel, then download oss 4.2 2008 and manually install. but now the package manager stops working. no faults shown in terminal, also
Code: Select all
portsnap
does not work saying no mirrors found
So how do fix
Code: Select all
 portsnap
or the package manager as it just shows the welcome screen then crashes

You need the kernel module enable in /boot/loader.conf.

Code: Select all
snd_emu10k1_load="YES"       # Creative Sound Blaster Live
snd_emu10kx_load="YES"       # Creative SoundBlaster Live! and Audigy


FreeBSD have put the used one in the default kernel.

I got the package manager working again I deleted OSS 4.2 2008 from /var/db/pkg i think that was the folder and the package manager started working again, not that I use it.
ports are now working, FreeBSD update working,
I reinstalled office it took several attempts but its also working now,
I have both nautilus and Gaja file managers is this correct?

No, it is not normal, but if you update some ports it might have install nautilus, because nautilus is dependency of some package by default in ports config, but they don't depend of it for functioning.

If you read the posts I have already made you will see that I have already sorted it all out and every thing is working.

GhostBSD still use pkg_add -r because of bxpkg use pkg_add. pkgng is part of the system but not useable for the moment.
