GhostBSD tiling spin

In the past GhostBSD has supported more spins before the decision was made to concentrate on MATE and Xfce. However ideas like bringing back a GNOME spin have been around for a while and users have reported that there's interest in an even lighter edition of GhostBSD, preferably with just a WM insta...

Re: How to increase kernel messages resolution?

Hi giocitta! I was pretty sure that this is a boot-time tunable but didn't remember where I read it off the top of my head. But I found it: man 4 vt is what holds the information that you are looking for. Basically you should try to set kern.vt.fb.default_mode to a higher resolution in /boot/loader....

Testing 11.1-BETA1

Took the chance at the weekend to do a little testing: I backed up data and did test installations of GhostBSD on several machines. Almost everything worked well. Here's just two things that I encountered for now: 1. On one machine with Intel graphics SLiM (well, actually X11) wouldn't start. I logg...

Re: Nearly perfect for me, but..

Hi amtrakuk, we're having a little "chicken and egg" problem here: FreeBSD is an excellent server operating system ! When it comes to the desktop, it's admittedly lacking behind quite a bit. We're trying to improve things in this regard. There's TrueOS (formerly PC-BSD) which aims at providing a mod...

Re: xorriso in ghostbsd-build

For testing purposes I can only recommend using Vagrant. Especially if you have a good internet connection, you always have the latest releases three terminal commands away. All available releases can be found here: https://app.vagrantup.com/freebsd

I have everything safely transferred over. But some of the important stuff I also burned to dvd's as well. Big thanks again to ASX and kraileth, for the how to load discs and the different file formats.
Glad everything worked well for you now! I'm marking this thread as solved.

Re: 'Auth.log' Log file filling up

If somebody wants the doas part fixed, too, he or she needs to find a volunteer with some C coding experience (and preferably somebody who's able to convince the Ted Unangst and the OpenBSD guys to accept a patch upstream). Some suicide attitude is needed to ask something that (removing logging) to...

Re: 'Auth.log' Log file filling up

Well, to me it would not make sense supressing these messages. They shouldn't be generated in the first place, right? Why would running 'ifconfig wlan0' make sense on a machine that has no wlan0? (or any wlan capability) I think 'WytWun' is right: something is not quit right here. That's actually t...

Re: 'Auth.log' Log file filling up

To me it would make sense if doas supported suppressing log messages for certain commands. However I don't think that it has such a feature. Yet?
