WiFi Not Working

This is on GhostBSD 10.1 MATE 64-bit. (the latest .iso) I've been through the FAQ section and the FreeBSD Handbook section on Wireless Networking and, from what I can tell, my WiFi should be working but it's not. Here's the output from sudo ifconfig | grep -B 3 802.11 : run0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST...

Re: Installer wiped my hard drive

but GhostBSD installer should have prevented the installation on an extended partition. ... something didn't worked as intended. I was wondering if that was true. Yeah, something got messed up. Oh well, it's water under the bridge now. I can either cry about it or move on (I choose the latter.) How...

Re: Installer wiped my hard drive

I thought about that after the fact. However, it still shouldn't have wiped out all of my partitions, including another primary partition. If it had wiped out only sda2, I'd have gotten over it. However, there was still no good reason for it to wipe the entire disk.

Re: Installer wiped my hard drive

The layout prior to installation of Ghost BSD was as so: sda2: Extended partition containing: sda5: Linux swap sda6: Peppermint OS sda7: nothing (this is where I put Ghost BSD) sda1: Primary NTFS data partition (holdover from when I used Windows, I hadn't switched to another file...

Re: Installer wiped my hard drive

I no longer have a Live GhostBSD because that .iso was on the disk that got wiped and I had to overwrite the USB drive with my Linux distro to put it back on the computer so that I'd have an operating system that I could boot into, since even GhostBSD wouldn't boot. I'm trying to recover my data usi...

Installer wiped my hard drive

I'm an experienced Linux user, but I decided to try BSD with Ghost BSD 10.1 Mate (the one that was just released.) During installation, I selected "Manual Partitioning" and I created a new partition for Ghost BSD. I didn't touch my Linux or my Data partition, nor did I tell the installer to use the ...
