Re: Now the SSD is Borked [SOLVED]

There could be leftover data on the MBR or EFI from previous GhostBSD installs. I would dd the first 100MB of the disk with something in the like of: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ada0 count=100M I had a similar problem with a computer, in that I did not re-format my root FS and simply let the installer d...

Re: GhostBSD with KDE Plasma

Casper I was actually able to set-up Enlightenment on my GhostBSD laptop and it works very well. I will test a setup of OpenBox and will let you know how it goes. Although there is only about a 10 to 20 percent CPU/RAM savings vs the current Mate environment. My whole purpose for this was to have a...

Re: Problem trying to install ghostbsd on SSD disk !!

Hello, Simply reporting back. I was able to install GhostBSD on a SSD. I used a SanDisk 180GB SSD. One item to note, I used the whole drive for GhostBSD. Also, I completely wiped the drive with 'gpart' then created a GPT type partition table format. I did not try it on a mbr type partition table for...

Re: How to install GhostBSD into the usb key?

There are many installers out there that you can use to create a persistent Live USB system. The one i use is Muilt-i-system.
You can check the process here: http://liveusb.info/dotclear/index.php?pages/install

Re: Problem trying to install ghostbsd on SSD disk !!

It is odd that install fails on SSD. I have a SSD so I am going to try to install GhostBSD on it. Also, since you are able to install GhostBSD on a platter disk, try the process below. On Platter disk: 1. install GhBSD On SSD: 1. create at least root /, and Swap (create, usr, var, etc. if you prefer...

Re: Preparing a multi boot install

I would say it may be easier to install GhostBSD and Linux dual boot this way: 1. with a blank HDD (or blank it on step 2) boot to GhBSD via your dvd/usb/iso, etc 2. assuming an 80GB hdd, with gpart create a blank slice for GhBSD root and swap, say 40 for /, and 4 swap, thus 44GB slice 3. create bla...
