GhostBSD 4.0 BETA1

Post by bsdkeith » Thu Jun 05, 2014 2:43 pm

Using i386.img dd'ed to pendrive.

Running live :-
Wrong keyboard & no wifi, wifi manager said none found.
Used setxkbmap gb to sort out the keyboard mapping.
Configured wifi with settings written down from a 3.1 install, /etc/rc.conf & /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, & ran service netif start. Still no wifi connection.
Tryed logging out & back in, restarting netif, stopping & starting netif, to no avail.

Tried to install :-
Using whole disk & boot loader,
Strapline reads 'Welcome to GhostBSD 3.5' - will need changing.

First attempt starting from desktop icon, somewhere after a while the installer just disappeared from the screen, so, I thought maybe it finished but didn't tell me.
So rebooted from hard drive (installation), which brought me to a 'mountroot>' prompt, stating error 19. (That install I left 'fish' as the shell.)

Second attempt, running gbi from the commandline, I noticed that there were an awful lot of /mnt/mnt/mnt before the filename being installed, I managed to count 32 /mnt before the filename at one stage!
The installer seemed to be adding an extra /mnt with each file being installed. Anyway, the installer crashed whilst adding /compat/linux/sbin/mkfs.ext4dev.
I also took note that /dev/ada0p2 was mounted on /mnt. On trying to boot from hard drive this time, came to the same 'mountroot>' prompt, I tried entering ufs:/dev/ada0p2 & various other permutations that I could think of, but kept getting 'error 19'.

So there seems to me to be a problem with the installer script & maybe wifi configuration with the wifi manager.
(Didn't think it worth going any further with testing at this time/stage.)

All the best,
Keith.

Will have to get back to you on that one. The laptop that I was using has now got FreeBSD 10.0 (with Fluxbox) on it. :)
I shall dd 4.0BETA1 to pendrive again & try running it live on there to get the results from ifconfig.
I'm afraid this machine I'm on at the moment is running one of the competition. :lol: (PC-BSD10 'straight out of the box')
It looks like I will be using BSD more in the future - they say a change is as good as a rest. :geek:

Network Manager comes up, but says there are no networks found.
Not sure if my wifi card driver is in the GhostBSD kernel. It works OK with my FreeBSD install, it was configured as part of the installation.

I have find all problem I had my self right now. I will since My new laptop Lenevo ThinkPad T530 use iwn I have found fix for all iwn card supported by FreeBSD kernel.

I also see that that your card has not been configured by Networkmrg from the log you gave me and that is also why wpa_supplicant.conf is not present.
I said,
I have try GhostBSD 4.0 i386.img on my new laptop I had notice that the network manager is present on i386.
But I have omitted a word - I have try GhostBSD 4.0 i386.img on my new laptop I had notice that the network manager is "not" present on i386.

When refer to the network manager I refer to the one we are making not the FreeBSD Wifi Network Manager.
