As far as I am aware, it is still FreeBSD underneath, so if it uses certain drivers, then surely GhostBSD would. :|

Re: GhostBSD4.0-RC2

Sorry, I don't have it any more since it crashed on the HP-G62, but I'm sure it needs Intel.

I am not so sure that either would fit with the original intention of a light environment, but maybe as easily installable options.

Re: My 2 Cents on GhostBSD after a couple of Weeks

Personally, XFCE would be the better choice, not just because I prefer it, but also because the man behind it is, I believe, French, so if you had any problems, you could most likely communicate in your own language. :)

Re: Ghostbsd is Really Good, Forum Search, bxpkg deprecated?

I use PC-BSD as one of my OS'es and quite agree about zfs; it is too complicated for a normal user system. I too do not like having services started 'straight out of the box', this creates vulnerabilities, if not very careful. One thing they have is a choice of WM or DE on installation, this I think...

Re: GhostBSD4.0-RC2

I tried changing the driver in xorg.conf from vesa to intel. Rebooting leaves me at a text prompt, does not start the GUI login screen! :cry: When I login and run startx, it will not start. :cry: So, I change the driver back to vesa & reboot - I get the GUI login screen, but my keyboard layout has b...

Re: GhostBSD4.0-RC1

My HP G62 with RC1 crashed loading up Firefox yesterday, now it will not re start, something to do with a 'bad_filesystem'. I have used 'single user mode' fsck to check and repair the filesystem, but it does not restart, keeps crashing with a kernel problem when trying to load up. (This laptop uses ...

Re: Ghostbsd is Really Good, Forum Search, bxpkg deprecated?

I think/agree that ghostBSD should stay as close to FreeBSD as possible whilst making it easy for a newcomer to try it 'live' and then install it.
