Re: Two questions about DragonflyBSD and this FreeBSD projec

Eric is a FreeBSD user, & that is why FreeBSD is used as the base system, because he has knowledge of that flavour of BSD, & his main aim was/is to help new users into using FreeBSD, by creating a live installable version.

Always download & use the latest stable versions of software or O/S, unless you have a specific reason to use old stuff.

Re: Installing GhostBSD into a 16 GB USB drive: can't boot

I remember having this sort of problem before, I think you will find that your 16gb drive is trying to boot from/as the second drive, as that is what it was when it was installed. You will need to alter the boot code on the 16gb drive to make it the first drive to boot, use your 4gb drive in live mo...

Re: ditched wireless, went wired and still no internet

All GhostBSD CD/DVD's are live installable, (as are the 'image' files).
There has been some problems with missing software on some 4.0RC releases, mainly 32bit.
Many people say they had 3.5 up and running, so no harm in trying it.

Re: Does Ghost do wireless?

I don't know if NDIS is in GhostBSD as standard, but I doubt it. Never having had to use it myself, I can only point you to info. Mounting a Linux partition from BSD can be tricky as not all Linux filesystems are supported. Basically the syntax is the same :- mount <drive> -t <filesystem> <mount-poi...

Re: dual boot with linux

You will need the UFS file system support in grub, not many distros have it.
Edit: Then, I think, you can 'chainload' it. (It's been some time since I dual booted any of my machines.)

Re: Does Ghost do wireless?

Linux drivers don't normally work on BSD, but you can try, (the kernels are quite different).
I don't think there will be any harm in trying, put it into the 'firmware' directory & reboot.
If it works you're lucky, if it doesn't, just delete it.

Re: dual boot with linux

Will the bsd boot loader pickup the Linux partitions?
It should - it did the last time I dual booted.
