GhostBSD4.0 Installation questions

Postby licuq » Fri Oct 03, 2014 8:09 am

Hi,

I am currently installing GhostBSD4.0

Which version of Shell I have to choose according to you? There is a choice of 8 versions: bash, csh, fish, ksh, rbash, sh, tcsh, zsh
fish is the default selected shell. Can I go for fish?

Why does the installation seems very long when copying files?

Installation done. I am currently on desktop connection, but it seems it does not support my keyboard layout. I have to look what are the corresponding keys to enter my password.

What is the first thing to do after the installation process is finished?
Code: Select all
sudo pkg update

"pkg update" is the right packages manager? Because I'm new and confused with the wiki that says in some cases "bxpkg" and in other cases of "pkg"?

After doing an update, the desktop is broken. I find myself in the login command line prompt and the serverX does not start.

Edit: I reinstall everything completely.

Edit:
During installation, I get this error message:
Unable to mount 18.3 GB Media
DBus error org.gtk.Private.RemoteVolumeMonitor.NotFound: The given volume was not found

Fish is the default shell and I recommend it to every one.

It is copying over 8Gb of file which take time.

bxpkg was our graphical packages manager before pkgng replace pkgsrc.
pkgng is the default Package Manager it is a CLI Package Manager and is pkg, update is an option like install, upgrade, help.
Help option is useful to have more detail one pkg command.
Code: Select all
pkg help

pkg upgrade will broke Xorg.

This error have nothing to do with the installer, Mate try to mount the drive you install GhostBSD in.

I have see today that FreeBSD have an new_xorg repository.

If you replace:
Code: Select all
url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/latest",
by
Code: Select all
url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/new_xorg",


It will solve the problem of upgrading.
