Re: Latest Updates Bring MATE 1.8 to Ghost 10.3

My 10.3 update this afternoon was huge (> 1GB!), but upgraded MATE from 1.2 to 1.8, and that's welcome. Just an fyi, and thanks to the team. :D Should be 1.12 to 1.18, but I'm sure that's what you mean. ;) Yes, quite some time ago Eric was busy porting 1.18 to FreeBSD. It took some time but eventua...

Re: i386 / 32 bit GhostBSD

For those who care about the i386 arch and GhostBSD: I proposed a "middle ground" solution a while ago: Reduce i386 to one desktop spin (Xfce is certainly the better choice here), don't install our repo config there (so that it uses the mainline FreeBSD repository like we did before) and make that I...

Re: PlayOnBSD for default pkg

You mean installed by default in every GhostBSD installation? I don't think that this is a good idea. It is very easy to install it for those who want it and it makes no sense to force this on people who don't need it at all. At some point in time package selection (or rather: profiles) would be a n...

Re: Nearly perfect for me, but..

I wish I had the time and knowledge in how to make the LEGO bricks rather thank just know how to stick them together :) Believe it or not: Even Eric who has founded the project started with pretty much no prior knowledge. He had an idea and stuck with it for years. GhostBSD is the result of his dev...

Re: How to increase kernel messages resolution?

Hi kraileth, I followed your suggestion, carefully read "man 4 vt", put 'kern.vt.fb.default_mode=1024x768"' in /boot/loader.conf, but it didn't work. "vidcontrol -i mode" prints only the header line. "dmesg | grep error" gives back "module_register_init: MOD_LOAD (vesa, 0x....., 0) error 19 ---- sy...

Re: BSD Randomly Halts on Boot

I don't see this behavior with 10.3 on the same machine. Has anyone else seen this behavior? Should I take this issue to the FreeBSD forum? Yes. That's still fairly early in the boot process while the kernel detects the hardware. GhostBSD runs a unmodified FreeBSD kernel and thus you should hit exa...

Re: Edit MATE menu?

Oops, this has been quite long-standing without any answer... :( I probably missed it because it was in the wrong section of the forums, so I moved it here now. About the problem: For me editing the menu works - not as I would have imagined, but at least at all. I've successfully disabled and re-ena...

Re: 10.3 slow mouse

I've checked it on MATE as well and can confirm that it works as it should. Tested it with GhostBSD 11.1 / MATE 1.18.

If it's still not working for you, please give us a bit more detail on what hardware you are using.

Re: GhostBSD tiling spin

Here are the first two ports, BTW. To make it easier to look at them, I'll paste the main content of both Makefiles here. Would be nice if somebody could take a look and if we could eventually import them (they are probably not of much use on their own, but the two ports will satisfy the dependencie...

Re: GhostBSD tiling spin

As long as you support and maintain the spin, I see the no problem with that. Sure, as soon as a working package for the WM is available, I'll roll an image and if I'm happy with it upload it somewhere as an unofficial spin. Then anybody who's interested can try it out. Should I find that it works ...
