Re: Dell Latitiude E6410

Thats fine, your efforts are welcome. I did try FreeBSD with later installing gnome3. The only stumbling block I ran out of time to learn was how to install the correct graphics drivers as video playback was "1 frame at a time" if you know what i mean. Apart from that gnome 3 was a pleasant experien...

Re: Dell Latitiude E6410

Right, I've tried the Hipster version of OI BSD - that gets as far as text relating to OPENSolaris. Sadly that doesn't boot either to the UI. The only one that does on my 6410 is TrueOS but I'm not keen on the UI - the icons are just black and white but in high resolution, OI didn't change anything ...

Re: Dell Latitiude E6410

I'll give 11.1 a go tonight but I'm pretty sure I've tried that... Interestingly enough TrueOS boots from USB OK and I did have a tinker with FreeBSD + Gnome 3 which worked OK however trying to play videos was not a nice experience so I gave up trying to install the correct graphics drivers after a ...

Re: Dell Latitiude E6410

Ahh changing the BIOS HDD addressing sounds a plan, I'll check that.

It boots up off the USB stick OK to the point the "desktop" is initialising. I tried startx at the prompt but it says the X failed to initialise and returns back to a prompt (IIRC)

Dell Latitiude E6410

I'm having problems booting on a Dell lat E6410. it just boots to a prompt at the point its meant to load the GUI. I'm assuming it is something to do with the NVIDIA GPU?

Re: Nearly perfect for me, but..

Thanks for all the posts. I have a good feeling about the BSD projects. I have and used to run a Free BSD server (7.0) I think it was and was smiling from ear to eat, why? Because unlike Linux distributions although useful I'm finding it's all a bit political over nothing - they all get from A to B ...

Re: 10.3 slow mouse

My mouse device is "sysmouse". Not sure if that is something to do with it. I know BSD can be fickle with hardware configs :)
