Re: Upgrade Borked System

I'm not sure what has happened during your updates. I can see a few things that have run afoul on my systems, too, and can only tell you what fixed things for me. I haven't suffered any ill effects from updates, so I may not be in the same boat. I can sympathise with your frustration, though. As for...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

Sorry guys, you're looking at my Linux roots showing. If you type 'bash', it'll switch your shell temporarily and those scripts will work properly. I'll work on getting them right for csh, tonight. They need to be run as user root.

Re: How to enable Multimedia Keys for my Keyboard

Have you tried xev and xbindkeys? It might be more work than it's worth, but it allows you to map special keys to other keys or even commands. Install xev and see if the keys actually show up: xev | awk -F'[ )]+' '/^KeyPress/ { a[NR+2] } NR in a { printf "%-3s %s\n", $5, $8 }' Stolen from: https://w...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

"Semi infinate" made me chuckle, but I feel for your situation! If you're willing, the commands below should be able to sort things out for you automatically. I have no idea how long this will end up taking. It could be quite a while, maybe even hours. It might be worth your time to just reinstall t...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

ericbsd , that would be awesome. As for frogprince , if you see any output from pkg check -s it tells you what package is having problems, and you can run pkg install -fy <pkg name> to force a reinstall and fix any issues. HOWEVER, there are some packages that won't 'fix'. On my machine, libgdata a...

Re: Upgrade Borked System

I'm always late, but there are a few commands that could possibly help out, in order. Run these in a terminal, of course.

If there is something missing:

Code: Select all

pkg check -d

If there is something corrupted:

Code: Select all

pkg check -s
I hope it says something useful.

Re: How to boot GhostBSD from a GRUB 2 config?

I'm dual booting from Fedora, though I'm booting less and less from it. Here is my grub2 entry:

menuentry "GhostBSD" {
set root='hd0,msdos1'
kfreebsd /boot/loader
}

You should be able to modify my second line to hd1,msdos3 and be good to go.

Re: Preparing a multi boot install

Better late than never? I'm trying to do something similar with Fedora. I'm looking to get away from SystemD. This page gives some recommendations about boot loaders: https://wiki.ghostbsd.org/index.php/Custom_Disk_Partitioning_Installation TL;DR Use Linux's grub. You can adapt the code at the botto...
