Questions about the installation of FreeBSD

Installing

HI Guys, I am new to Ghostbsd. From what I have seen of it so far I am very impressed. It is one of the very few OSs which will work at all now with my 1999 GeForce 64 MB graphics card. Due to changes in the Linux kernel for example this will no longer work with any current Linux version. However, intially I had much trouble installing Ghostbsd. Now with the new beta release 2 it has installed OK, but I still cannot get either of my wireless cards to work. In the verbose run-up at boot both of these are recognised, but then they are not enabled.

This is strange because PCBSD installs both of my wireless devices straight away and all works, but Ghostbsd does not. This is a great pity because the GUI of Ghost bsd and its approach represent a great improvement on PCBSD, and I would like to be able to use it. The wireless devices which will not install are a Marvell chipped card and a Ralink 54M USB wireless link. Can anyone advise me please as to how I can connect these? Thanks.

I installed GhostBSD, but how do I install the Russian language to Mate? :?
I'm new to GhostBSD. It was my first installation. I had a little experience in FreeBSD.

To change your keyboard layout under X, in a terminal,
Code: Select all
setxkbmap gb

will change it to English British, just swap your country code letters for the 'gb'.

Actually you can change the language and Keyboard in the login window when you select your user. but it is not possible on the live image at the moment.
