GhostBSD 4.0 RC 1 the Live Disk Will Not Boot

Post by leegold »

GhostBSD 4.0 RC 1 DVD will not boot it stops at creating xorg.conf file.

3.5 would boot...

Any ideas?

I think the problem is my monitor's EDID.

When I tried Debian it installed OK but as it boots it's very verbose, and there's major "complaining" about the EDID.

That my guess what the issue is - handling a monitor with a "bad" EDID.

You could see if RC2 will work, now available - however, the dvd did not boot on my laptop. (I am in the process of reporting this.)

I have uploaded RC2 which I have done some changes on the Xorg system. You can find images here http://sourceforge.net/projects/ghostbs ... s/release/

The installer of GhostBSD only supports creating BSD partitions, if you want to re size a Linux partition you will have to do it before. If you're confused how to create a partition on GhostBSD use the option auto label it will be easier.

I am experiencing this exact issue now with the 4.0-RELEASE live disk. Was this fixed in RC2? I'm downloading the image to test right now.
