Installation GhostBSD 18.08-2018-08-14-17 iso

Post by slughorn » Sun Sep 02, 2018 6:45 am

After installation of GhostBSD 18.08-2018-08-01-14 iso on VirtualBox.
GhostBSD 18.08-2018-08-01-14 iso worked fin on Virtualbox.

I thought to give it a try on my spare computer.
With both isos I got the following messages.

Code: Select all

Waiting for X server to begin accepting connection server terminal with error (1) Closing Log file
xinit: givin up
xinit: unable to connect to X sever: socket is not connected
xinit: server error
I hope it will help to improve the installation process.

Hi Naville,
the mainboard is a GF8100VM-M5 based on NVIDIA* GF8100 chipset with integrated NVIDIA GeForce Series DirectX10 Vertex Shader 4.0 graphics processor
and AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core processor.
I know this is an old machine (10 years old) and I plan to upgrade this one during the winter season:-)

It is probably better to try the latest ISO https://download.ghostbsd.org/releases/ ... ES/latest/

Today I tried GhostBSD 2018-08-30-16-59.iso

It shows the same error as above. No installation possible.

To exclude hardware issues I tried some Linux-live-Isos. They started.

Hi ericbsd,

I tried to install GhostBSD-2018-09-09-19-39.iso. I got the same result as above: error...

I reinstalld GhostBSD 11.1 on the same machine and it works. There must be a difference between FreeBSD 11.1 and 12 current in this area of hardware detection.

I will upload a new iso for you to try The way the iso was working it was only set for the latest Nvidia drivers.

Try that new one https://download.ghostbsd.org/releases/ ... -10-40.iso

If everything goes fine after installation the first boot you should have the right Nvidia drivers installed.

Many thanks.
I download it now. But my spare time for the next days is very rare. You will here from me as soon as I have installed it.

Today I tried GhostBSD 2018-09-14-10-40.iso
I got to the live screen, MATE-desktop with the new awesome background picture. There I had no LAN connection.
Than I started the installation. After restart I got no graphical login manager. Only CL login and password. No MATE.
Which service have I to start, to get MATE?
I know I'm a DAU and have to read the FreeBSD handbook. But GhostBSD 11.1 started MATE without additional help.
