This step by step install is a hand written record, while the install took place. Disregard any typo'sLet me start by saying that the BSD's are very responsive & quick, so do not hit buttons rapidly. :lol: I might, make a openBSD/ solaris/pitbull LX guide in the future, if I have the time. openBSD & solaris/trusted solaris actually are the fastest two installs & downloads.This freeBSD 5.1 install was executed VIA CD/DVD-ROMAnd the ISO was downloaded from www.LinuxISO.org Pre Install measures: Download Aida32 from these mirrors www.webattack.comorwww.downloads.comyou will need to pr
Is there anyplace that documents exactly what steps I need to take to be able to talk to an ODBC server through PHP3 on FreeBSD?I've installed the iODBC driver manager, phpinfo() reports Unified is active -- but now what? What the heck is the next step?
I've used serial console on Redhat before, and all I did was direct grub to put the output to the serial port, I was wondering if anyone has done this on FreeBSD or by chance knows some sites that would help make this possible.
Do you know what version of MySql can I use under FreeBSD 5.2.1?

HiI managed to get freebsd 5.2-Current up and running which is cool I managed to get project evil up and running, however, I can't assign and ipv4 address assigned to the card:ifconfig ndis0 inet 192.168.1.50 netmask 255.255.255.0 ssid default wepmode on wepkey 0x(key)when I do an ifconfig ndis0 the inet address is missing but the inet6 address is there.I just tried to assign an ipv4 address to another card (ethernet) and it did the same thing, but if I set rc.conf to assign an address to the ethernet card during boot it works fine, this would be an option for ndis0 if i could only figure out
I personally would love to see an FreeBSD option at Slicehost. Now that FreeBSD can run as a 32-bit host ( ok I know that Slicehost seems to only wan't to run 64-bit hosts but maybe an expection ? )From FreeBSD press release ( http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.0R/pressrelease.html ) "FreeBSD now supports host and guest modes in VirtualBox, and can run as a 32-bit Xen DomU guest."There is a discussion on this @ Linode forum, I think well at least some people would join for only the FreeBSD option :) ( I would rejoin )
I'm creating some tables similar to this: CREATE table clients ( client_id int(10) unsigned NOT NULL auto_increment, birthdate date NOT NULL default '0000-00-00', lastname char(15) NOT NULL, firstname char(15) NOT NULL, PRIMARY KEY (client_id), KEY birthdate(birthdate) ); Then I run mysqldump to see what was created. In windows I get: ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1; but in FreeBSD I get: ENGINE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1; How can I caulse FreeBSD to default to InnoDB tables also? I can't find a configuration file to see if I can change the default. William
I had problem starting Clonezilla. I had an old machine with xp on it which was bloated, but it had some sensitive data so i wanted to clone the disk and have it as a backup.I downloaded clonezilla.iso for the architecture i686 and burned it. When i booted from the newly burned Clonezilla cd, everything was fine, the menu loaded fine so i selected the Clonezilla live. It went into a loop constantly printing some exceptions about ata2: and in the end resulted as a boot failure.Unfortunately, i don't know how to paste that log here, because i end up with some compromised console with a humble li
Why aren't there any FreeBSD slices?I really can't live without it. There's no way I'm going back to Linux.

I'm the maintainer of the textproc/sphinxsearch port of the Sphinx search engine toFreeBSD. A few weeks ago a user asked me about enabling the Sphinx Search Engine tabletype in MySQL. This is something I'd muttered about doing when I originally created thesphinxsearch port, and given the recent release of SphinxSearch 0.9.8 it was high time todo something about it.I've come up with two patches: one for the databases/mysql50-server port, and the otherfor databases/mysql51-server port. These have been submitted to the maintainer of all ofthe MySQL server ports, but there has been no response as

On a semi-dedicated freebsd 4.1.1 server I have running jdk 1.1.8 which seems to be the last official port for freebsd Now I wish to install tomcat.Since I am running an older jdk version (1.1.8), I am a bit in doubt which tomcat version to go for.I would welcome any advice.
Are there any plans of adding FreeBSD slices? I can't be the only one that prefers a BSD server over a Linux one. =)
i'm using an debian OS ( lenny 5.0.7 ) to setup a pxe server on clonezilla. I installed the DRBL server & configurated this like it should be according the FAQ on the site. My clonezilla SE allows me to create "clones" of the pc's that i connected with the live CD. It also allows me to restore my client pc's but only if i enter the live cd of the program and connect to the server by using the wizard that is provided.I'm trying to set this up that it allows PXE booting for the installation , so i can preform a multi cast.When i'm doing an pxe boot from a client it goes well ( it g

clonzill web page says* Method 1: Use Clonezilla live to restore the image to a virtual machine (e.g. VMWare workstation or Virtual Box). Then mount the restored partition to read the contents.* Method 2:1. Prepare a large disk in Linux2. Say if your image is /home/partimag/YOURIMAGE/, if the image is like /home/partimag/YOURIMAGE/*-ptcl-img.* (e.g. /home/partimag/YOURIMAGE/sda1.ext4-ptcl-img.gz.aa), follow this to restore the image.If the the image is like /home/partimag/YOURIMAGE/sda1.ntfs-img.aa, sda1.ntfs-img.ab..., run"file /home/partimag/YOURIMAGE/sda1.ntfs-img.aa"to see it's g

We are in the process of doing online creditcard validations on our FreeBSD/PHP 4.0.5 webserver. To do this, we have to set up an HTTPS connection to our payment server. (That is, open an HTTPS url from within a PHP script). After digging around a bit, I learned that you can compile PHP with the cURL library to do this.BUT.... on the cURL download page (http://curl.haxx.se/) I see that the FreeBSD port does not support SSL. Does anyone here have experience with this or know of an alternative that we could use?Thanks!BartWebmaster www.blender.nl
Is there a way to get ASP running on a server running apache webserver and FreeBSD OS?
Simply put, accidentally saved the ISO or w/e Clonezilla uses to my hard drive and it formated it. Gotta re-install the OS and update ALL over again and DL all my programs. Getting really tired of all this. =/ I can't find a backup system that works for me. Remastersys says it's too big to save it as an ISO, using the tar setup sends me to the CLI, and Clonezilla won't save to anything but my hard drive and not a flash drive...please help.
Since Clonezilla is based on Debian/Ubuntu, I figured I would ask this here:Does anyone know if its possible to add a boot splash to Clonezilla to cover up all the rolling text on startup? Its being booted off a USB thumb drive, so you don't have to worry about ISO re-mastering.What do I edit in syslinux.cfg to give it a boot splash? Or is it even possible?
http://www.opensolaris.org/os/articl...eebsd_kernels/Scheduling and SchedulersThe basic unit of scheduling in Solaris is the kthread_t; in FreeBSD, the thread; and in Linux, the task_struct. Solaris represents each process as a proc_t, and each thread within the process has a kthread_t. Linux represents processes (and threads) by task_struct structures. A single-threaded process in Linux has a single task_struct. A single-threaded process in Solaris has a proc_t, a single kthread_t, and a klwp_t. The klwp_t provides a save area for threads switching between user and kernel modes. A single-thre

We need IBM Director agent for IBM X sereis servers we use in our product to monitor hardware faults and generate alerts for the same. We can't use Windows or Linux version of the Director agent as the OS we use is FreeBSD. Now my questions are:a) Can we somehow run IBM director agent (the Linux version) on the FreeBSD system ? (FreeBSD is supposed to have binary compatibility with Linux)b) If we can't, can our development team used the MIBs associated with the IBM director in a home grown SNMP agent. What kind of license will be needed?
I just inherited a bunch of FreeBSD servers that need to be upgraded (hardware), and since I have very minimal experience with FreeBSD, I have been toying with the idea of migrating them to another OS. Trouble is, I have no experience with Ubuntu. Does anyone recommend one of the other? If I decide to go down this path, is there anything I should be aware of for making a smooth transition between OS's?

HiI am currently working on a R&D project to investigate the connectivity of our inhouse product to other DB's. One of them is DB2. My current problem is that we run our product on FreeBSD with the 4.3Kernel. It is a PHP Web based aplication that needs to be able to connect to other databases. I know PHP can connect to DB2 as i have done this (under windows) to our database server wich is on Red Hat fedora Core. So my problem is how can i get a FreeBSD ODBC driver going that will allow me to connect to DB2 fromt he aplication server. I hacve tried copying over the sqllib dir and require fi

Is there any interest in the FreeBSD/Gentoo project ? Gentoo was always my distro of choice, and I later found OpenBSD. NowI've found found this combo that's great (I'll go with FreeBSD instead of OpenBSD) if I can just get an install going.'Just "testing the waters"............
all I am hoping someone knows a way using my target drive.I cloned my laptop hard drive to the first partition on a 1tig ext drive. I can see the partition in disc utility but I can not mount it or see a name. Same with gparted.In disc utility I can see that it is bootable but I can not rename it or anything. I am thinking of formatting the partition and re-cloning. In the options for clonezilla I used the second option (not the image option.)Any advice would be greatly appreciated,
I have installed fedora 7.0 to my laptop and for school purpose I have to format it and install freeBSD. Can anyone please tell me how i format fedora ? since i can't simply go to bio and delete the partition like windows anymore....

can anyone please tell me how I can send email with freeBSD? I guess the:mail -s " subject" [email protected] is for system internal mail only??? do i need to browse my for example hotmail.com ,,, login and then create the email from there? ..... or if there is a better way to send an email?

Hi, my laptop is bascially my life in terms of my work - I travel a lot and am paranoid that I will lose/damage the many useful programs, tweaks, preferences etc that I have accumulated.Does a program like clonezilla literally copy every tweak, program, etc when it makes an image of your OS?I have a dual boot so I imagine that it can completely clone both windows 7 and ubuntu, (seperately).So basically if the worst happens then the re-install will re-install all the tweaks and programs right?

I'd like to have an good comparison of FC 4 vs FreeBSD6 for use as a web server. I am upgrading a dedicated server and have these two OS's to choose from. I am also deciding between the following 3 processors with the same HD (160GB) and RAM (2GB):AMD 64 X2 Dual Core 3800AMX Athlon 64 3200Intel P4 3 GHzThe server will primarily host sites running PHP/MySQL applications with moderate load (150K-250K hits per month).I understand FreeBSD is rock solid and secure and I'm also very comfortable with the FC4 environment. I need to know if there is a benefit to running either of these with the Dual Co
