Re: Windows 10 & GhostBSD

Hi, Achim. About the headset issue, it probably means GhostBSD hasn't or can't configure the audio pins properly. The good news is I had the same problem on FreeBSD 10 and fixed it. Also on my old laptop the headset works properly out of the box. if you run dmesg -a or look in /var/run/dmesg.boot y...

Re: Installer not starting X; nvidia vt issues?

but I notice it pretty hard to submit something here on the forum! Both my Linux laptop & on my Android phone I have to try always two or three times to submit a post, cause the delivery takes long and then the posted text and the editor version both are shown!? when I then do a 3rd or 4th refresh o...

Re: Installer not starting X; nvidia vt issues?

Hi Neville Thanks for Your reply! Well, as I never tried to install Free-/GhostBSD via commandline, I m a bit lost on that.

Re: Installer not starting X; nvidia vt issues?

well, I found an old screenshot of my FreeBSD 11 installation where I put the depth on 24 with resolution 1024x768 which worked for the screen section of xorg.conf. but it seems I have to have an installed system to "save" that xorg.conf which I don t have as I usually first use the live system´s gr...

Re: Windows 10 & GhostBSD

Hi Folks I just made the last repository upd and have now found a stable way for wlan with GhostBSD 11.1: found an old Dlink GWL-122 with Ralink 2070 chipset that gives stable internet now. So older Ralink and Realtek seems to work best for now! if I get through this horrific parametric stuff for th...

Re: Windows 10 & GhostBSD

Hi wb7... well, after lots of experimenting I must say, with a "user friendly system" I don t expect to start kernel compiling and havent done so for years anyway. But thanks for the hints. Right now my main working system is a OpenSUSE Linux 42.3 and I work on GhostBSD 11.1 via ext. USB disk. I hop...

Re: Login

Hi, as with two previous installations I had login probs,too but found another issue on FreeBSD forums concerning a missing 'xinitrc' file in "normal user" directories. I tried with 'german-at' as well as 'english-US' keyboard layouts with same behaviour: could only login with "root" but NOT with no...
