Lost the Desktop [SOLVED]

Hi, I fired up my GhostBSD 10.1 32bit PC that has been running Mate Desktop since I installed 10.1. I decided to apply updates through The Green Pacman Ghost Icon OctoPkg. It has been weeks since the last time I updated. I did the updates and rebooted. After I rebooted and logged in I was greeted wi...

OctoPkg and Downgrading a Package [SOLVED]

Hi, It's nice that OctoPkg is now able to easily keep our software up to date. Is it possible via OctoPkg to downgrade to a prior release of an application. The latest Hatari V1.80 broke the VM hard drive support. V1.70 worked fine. I've waited a year for BSD to get current to V1.90 in BSD but it is...

Re: Live User doesn´t login

I read somewhere in the past that there is a way to see the boot logs. I never had to do it so I need to find out where the logs get created to. If someone else knows off the top of their heads please chime in. Does your PC have a DVD Drive? If so try creating a DVD and booting off of that just in c...

Re: Live User doesn´t login

Hello and welcome to GhostBSD. To help you out we need more information. Which of the GhostBSD downloads did you use? 10.1 or older, Mate or XFCE, i386 or AMD64? Also in a Virtual Machine or real hardware? I run older hardware and use the 10.1 MATE i386 and just booted off the ISO in Virtual Box and...

Re: Hybrid ISO for testing.

I have seen the Virtualbox pop ups too on real hardware. I don't recall though on my Dell if I am running 10.1 i386 B1 or B2 but the Virtualbox warnings do occur at boot up.

Re: How do I mount my NTFS and FAT32 drives?

I mostly run GhostBSD in a Virtual Machine with either Virtual Box or VMWare Workstation. I do have a P4 that I do run GhostBSD 10.1B1 on but I only have one hard drive in the machine that has GhostBSD on it so I don't know how it will behave with a FAT16 or FAT32 hard drive in the machine. But with...

Re: How do I mount my NTFS and FAT32 drives?

For me when I plugged in a USB FAT16 or FAT32 Thumb Drive GhostBSD 4.0 automatically mounted the drives.

Re: Hybrid ISO for testing.

I downloaded the i386 ISO and installed B2 under Virtualbox. Only strange thing I noticed was that when booting is that you get to a Log In screen and have to press Enter before you get to the desktop to be able to do the install.

Re: How to correct this error in xorg?, in Ghosbsd 4 of 32 b

I think what Eric meant was that not having the exact same hardware as you he can not debug and correct this issue and that with the next release of GhostBSD with the updated FreeBSD core that the problem will be solved.

Setting up a Printer in 10.1

Hello, Not sure if this is a bug or just not knowing what I am doing. In GhostBSD 4.0 I was able to setup a network printer without issue. In 10.1 A2 and now B1 I can not setup a printer. I fired up my 4.0 VM and went through the process there and what I noticed is that in 10.1 A2 and B1 it appears ...
