Re: i386 / 32 bit GhostBSD

I've pretty much purged my 32-bit machines. I do still have one old 32-bit lap top running Puppy Linux, which I keep in my workshop simply to play streaming music with (it has a nice sound system), but is pretty much worthless for other web use. Many of us who have some experience with PC's end up i...

Speed Compliment

My Ghost 11.1/MATE install boots from post to password login in 45 seconds, and has the desktop ready to go in a minute and 15 seconds, including typing in the username and password. And that's with a 10-year old Asus M2N-MX mobo with an Athlon processor and 4 GB of RAM. Good job, guys.

Re: What gstreamer plug in needed? [SOLVED]

This appears to be a player software problem. I added the gstreamer ogg, vorbis, and aac plugins in addition to the gstreamer 1 versions. I can now play somafm and HBR1 streams on Firefox and Rythymbox. On Exaile, I can now play the HBR1 streams, but not somafm, my other online favorite. On that pla...

What gstreamer plug in needed? [SOLVED]

I know, it's weird music, but I like to listen to it now and then. I've added HBR1 - Dream Factory to both Goggles and Exaile. The station has a choice of either AAC+ or Oggvorbis encoding. I've installed the gstreamer "bad" plugin among others, but in both cases, the players give me an error messag...

Re: 11.1 Alpha Video Driver?

I uninstalled nv, and then installed nvidia-driver-340, nvidia-settings, and nvidia-xconfig. /boot/loader.conf did not contain: "nvidia_load=YES" so that remained the same. However, I did have to open as root /etc/rc.conf and add: kld_list="nvidia" I then ran as root: nvidia-xconfig rebooted, and vo...

My BSD machine is a home built system using a ten-year-old Asus M2N-MX mobo, a socket AM2 Athlon 64 processor, 250GB/2GB, an nVidia GeForce 210 video card, GBD 10.3, and MATE. This afternoon, I found a leftover 2 GB DDR2 stick in my RAM box, and put it in the system. Although System Monitor shows it...
