Should I post here. I tried GhostBSD live on my laptop and it did not go well.
Laptop is HP 8710whttp://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/publ ... -c01491231
the iso is:
The wifi did not work. the wifi did not turn on by default and pressing the laptop buton for wifi did not work. I looked for a config application but couldn. Like:https://launchpad.net/wicd
couldn't find it.
I tried to open mate terminal, xterm to see if there was something like ifconfig and every time I tried opening a terminal the screen went blank for a few seconds then two identical error message boxes appeared on the top right and left of the desktop. It said something like: Vboxclient failed to connect to virtualbox kernal service rc=VERR_Fl...
Also sometimes a small window would appear asking about classic or purity station - maybe a tool tip explaining what this would help for a new live user...seems like it added flavor to desktop config...
Since I couldn't get wifi and could not open a terminal I decided to bail and reboot to my usual OS. I couldn't find a shutdown reboot option in the menus (I'm sure I must of missed it). So I did ALT-F2 and that worked and I reboot with that command window.
I'm getting to like the Linux distros I try less and less as they "improve" with new versions. Wanted to try GhostBSD but wifi and getting a terminal is obviously important. the md5 hash checks OK.
