Re: dual or many boot GhostBSD with Linux [SOLVED]

Thank you for your reply.

I have GPT Partition and a BIOS boot partition.

I am searching for clues how to get GhsotBSD recognized by grub, the best I ever got was unknown Linux version, but wasn't added to the grub menu.

Re: HP printer install checksum failed

When setting up the printer, and hplip finds the printer and it offers to download the files, can you cancel and choose your own ppd file? I could, but for now I changed the HDD, I installed it on an 12 years old laptop, and it is just too old. If I would know how to install ghostBSD for dual or ma...

On Linux it just works and it doesn't matter on which distro. How come it worked in 10.3 and not anymore in 11.1?

Re: HP printer install checksum failed

Hi. I'm not sure what you mean by checksum error. Do you mean you get this error when installing the HPLIP package? For scanners there's xsane which I use for scanning with HPLIP or if your adventurous there's this: https://github.com/chessgriffin/freebsd-ports/tree/master/myports/simple-scan Sorry...

HP printer install checksum failed

Hi there,

just wanted to install my HP Laserjet which worked in 10.3 and now in 11.1 ALPHA it provides the checksum error.

Also, I am unable to find any scan software in octopkg, my favoured is simple-scan, but as I said, there seems to be no scan software at all in BSD??

Thanks for any help ;-)

Re: GBD 10.3 install fine first update xorg dead

Hi, and welcome to GhostBSD! Sorry about the problems you are having. I'm using GhostBSD 10.3 on my laptop and it's running fine so perhaps we can solve your problem. At the moment we are going through a transition period where we are switching to using our own repositories, not the FreeBSD reposit...

Re: GBD 10.3 install fine first update xorg dead

Thanks for your reply NevilleGoddard , I might try the new version on my gaming laptop and the 10.3 version with your servers on the work laptop I try my OSes on.

I will come back and post my results, but that take a while before I get to it.

Thanks

GBD 10.3 install fine first update xorg dead

Dear Ghost-BSD Friends, using Linux for a very long time I thought I gave GBSD a shot and when I installed it on my old laptop, I was very impressed. But... I started an update and after I rebooted there was no xorg no more. I tried to start xstart etc. no dice. Guys, that is Linux from the 90s and ...
