Re: is pf firewall installed in GhostBSD

pf is not included with the stock install, look at fwbuilder in octopackage.

MATE Stock Quote Applet Won't

"The server could not be contacted. The computer is either offline or the servers are down. Try again later". I've been getting this message for two months now. The problem seems related to MATE 1.18, since the older version worked. Is there a way for me to fix this? Thanks in advance.

Re: Can't Exaile after Update

eric: I just booted the system again (I had in fact rebooted after my update), and now everything is working fine. This smells to me like a HD problem, so I will get a new one and try again.

Thanks for responding!

Can't Exaile after Update

I just installed a big update for 10.3, and now Exaile won't open. Has anyone else seen this behaviour? Audacious works, so it's not hardware.

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: I really appreciate your patience with me on this situation. I ran zpool scrup tank through to its conclusion, but it found no errors. I found this entry on a search: http://www.freebsdonline.com/content/view/662/528/ "If you get on FreeBSD the following error: pam_chauthtok(): error in service...

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: I ran zpool scrub tank which went quickly, but did not fix anything. I still got the same error message for passwd, and although the boot process runs perfectly normally through the nVidia load screen and into slim, I still get a black screen after logging in either as root or username. When I ...

Re: Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

ASX: my spelling on the disk slice id was only in my post; it was correct on my system. When I repeated the fsck attempt, I got the same result. I ran: gpart show -p which told me that the filesystem on ada0p2 (there is no line through the zero, but it is a zero; I was careful about that) is clearly...

Newbie Fouled Up System with 10.4 Upgrade [SOLVED]

This is not a panic, since I have a very nice 11.1 system running on another disk, which is what I'm sending this from. But reading about 10.4 made me curious, so I looked up upgrading Ghost 10.3 to 10.4 in "the usual way". After some investigation, I ran: freebsd-update -r 10.4-RELEASE upgrade and ...
