Re: GhostBSD 11.0 ALPHA1 is ready!

ericBSD, as of this post 4/21/2017, we still need the NVIDIA-375.39 driver added to the installer. The installer sees the card but says no file found!! I would help out and put it in there if I knew what the heck I was doing.

Re: Prealph4 11.0

Ok, thanks for reply. I did get PREALPH4 Xfce4 working. It had a typo in loader.conf, so the loader would not load the kernel modules. I installed the lastest NVIDIA dirvers and it seems to be working very well. I will install APLHA 1 and see how that works and let you know!!!
