install ubuntu dual-boot

Post by Barbolux »

Hi! good morning

this is a newbie question of course, but since I could not find a simple answer yet, i logged on this forum to ask you.
i hope to learn a lot here in the next years!! :)

What is the best way of installing a Linux distro side-by-side with FreeBSD?

My distro of choice will be Lubuntu 14.04.3 LTS.

After some years of switching from Windows to Ubuntu, i have tested a few distros like Arch, Slackware, and had always wanted do choose FreeBSD. The most important applications i do use are GIMP, Inkscape, Scribus and xsane. everything works faster and more stable now.

The secondary distro i need for miscelaneous apps.

Thank you in advance! :mrgreen:

HI the best way will be to install Ubuntu first and install ghostbsd after with no boot loader or grub and configure Ubuntu grub to boot GhostBSD/FreeBSD.
