Unable to install GhostBSD 3.5

Postby Hiroshi Katayama » Mon Nov 18, 2013 8:16 pm

In trying to install GhostBSD 3.5 using USB external CD drive.
DVD stopped during installation

Code: Select all
Ghostread() eror=5
Can't exec getty

CD

FreeBSD/X86 boot up loader, Revison 1.1

stopped.


GhostBSD has a trouble installing from USB CD ?

Thanks

My motherboard is AMD64 Quad core using PC-BSD 9.2, just change hard disk to other one ( currently formatted as ZFS) for installing GhostBSD now.

I am using FreeBSD since 3.X.
What else I should reply ?

Thanks

Installing using USB memory stic does work until startx.
Looks like Xorg conf or around there, seg fault happened.

Xorg -configure set as Radeon. BUT ATI driver does not work, so change xorg.conf to vesa. vesa does work but depend monitor's resolution. So my acer is O.K. but asus is error.

Thanks for your help, I will check tomorrow.

Sorry I wrote to simple?

GhostBSD installers to check video card during installation, and found radeon and write xorg.conf. Then xinit or somewhere try to start X and segment fault happens.

I do not know so much about x or Gnome or KDE guis. I never see any ATI support by FreeBSD variant, most set as vesa.

So I change as super user by editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Looks like xorg.conf was rewritten during installation as radeon which is my FM2 CPU's on chip video.
Then I changed following portion

Code: Select all

Section "Device'
             Driver "radeon" to
             Driver "vesa"
After modified then Save
at prompt
startx


So gnome ? or some GUI screen comes up.
That's all.

Could you give me how to make zfs on boot and how to start install program at gui screen.

Thanks

Hiroshi

You can not change some parameters, you need to put a # to comment it so that way will not be rewritten.

When you said "So gnome? or some GUI comes up" you make me the idea that you do not know what are you talking about.
What you download will install, if you download GhostBSD + Mate than that will be the result.
And I do not understand what happened at the end, you finished to install? Because in a place you said it start and later you said it does not.
