Re: Standard cross platform encryption program

About the warning...meh. I think either the NSA hassled him or he just got tired of maintaining the work and decided to quit. I get that you only work with ports. Part of what I'm asking is that you be aware that such exist and to think about it. I did add lots of caveats. I understand you can only ...

Standard cross platform encryption program

There's a program called VeraCrypt. The newest version is supposed to work on FreeBSD. I would be very appreciative if it was part of the GhostBSD DVD. https://www.veracrypt.fr/en/Downloads.html A little background to understand why. There was a program on windows called Truecrypt(open source). It a...

Re: Live CD works fine fail when installed to USB stick

Well I haven't written back because I had a massive destruction of my drives. Seems that where the partition manager says it's going to write GhostBSD is not necessarily where it's going to write. I noticed it was writing to the wrong drive and stopped it but lost about 500GB of data. I had a lot ba...

Re: Live CD works fine fail when installed to USB stick

The reason I want BSD instead of linux is it's a system. Linux distros are all so different and change so much so often that I see it as a waste of time to learn the same thing over and over. I want to learn one way and stick with it. I do understand the difference. I wish the Lawsuit against BSD ne...

Re: Live CD works fine fail when installed to USB stick

I'm thinking about taking a different tact. The goal is to not touch any of my regular partitions. I want to use a CD or USB to boot a partition. I made a partition on a drive. I found this boot manager called Plop Boot Manager. I'm hoping I can boot BSD using it. It has a boot CD rom. So I don't us...

Re: Live CD works fine fail when installed to USB stick

Thank you for responding. I used CLI back in the day on PC's..DOS. I hated it. I can do it and understand the idea but don't know any of the commands. I know it's faster but I don't understand why anyone likes CLI. Unless you have the commands memorized you have to write them down or have a book wit...

Live CD works fine fail when installed to USB stick

Thanks for making GhostBSD. I want to move to BSD but slowly by starting with booting to a usb and then adding drivers and programs I like. I'm installing on a 32GB usb thumb drive. The CD boots up and works fine!!! :) I installed from the CD to the USB drive. Failed first time. I forgot to write do...
