Hi, sorry I'v not been in contact for a long time, I installed Ghost on the PC 's hard drive, the problem starts when I start the PC it gos to login and I type in my login name, then password, I type in my password, and then I get the above text on the screen, I tryed typing startx. I just can't get it to load on the PC and run.

Ghostbsd runs fine as a live dvd so I dont understand what the problem could be. PCbsd works fine but I wanted to try Ghostbsd.

It might be installation that have failed.
Any way I will release a 3.1 version to fix bug that was on 3.0 release.

Why then is it still available for download?, There is no warning either.I think that is pathetic,you are wasting peoples time and effort.

adson3492 3.0 it is available on sourceforge yes, but not from the website, also if people download old stuff when the newest available it is kind weird.

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