Re: i386 / 32 bit GhostBSD

Thank-you all for your replies. I have reviewed the situation and come to the conclusion the GhostBSD is not the way for me. Unfortunately mostly this is due to the apparent lack of commitment about maintaining a 32bit distro. This is a shame as there is nothing wrong with the hardware ( indeed I wo...

Re: GBD 10.3 install fine first update xorg dead

@ ASX, Thank you for the quick reply, I need to get hard disk reloaded with the OS first, so sometime after the weekend. P.S. I assume editing is via 'easy editor' (ee) with a command ee /etc/rc.conf (I just found '...freebsd/how-to-guides/freebsd-set-up-tips/', and that's what it says.) Much apprec...

I did...

Re: GBD 10.3 install fine first update xorg dead

I had the same problem after the first upgrade, according to Linux I have Intel Mobile 945GM/GMS 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller.

Re: i386 / 32 bit GhostBSD

I feel it's a shame that so many distros are abandoning 32 bit machines, there are plenty of them still in use. I've only just retired my 19year old IBM Thinkpad 600x due to processor cooling fan problems. Anyway I use a trusty old IBM/Lenovo T60. It was running PCLinuxOS (which I still like a lot) ...
