New in Linux (FreeBSD Installation)
Im from a windows environment, (MCSA and more) and having real hardship successfully installing FreeBSD 7.2. I just cant seem to install FreeBSD until beatifull splash screen.
I can get until to X11 (as i'm told) but typing startx. from there my keyboard and mouse don't work.
( i easily installed Ubuntu, set up email and updates. I really didn't have hustles with Ubuntu.)
Check /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors (lines beginning with "EE").
Moved: This thread is more suitable in <*BSD> and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.
Add these lines to /etc/rc.conf
If : Just a default xorg-7.4_2
Alwayes send your xorg.conf entirely(with the exceptions of comments)
There's two type of free implementation of X11 -- current release
XFree86™ 4.4RC2 && Xorg 7.4
As of FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE, the default flavor of X11 was changed to Xorg (Hot/Relax Licence!)
Starting with version 7.4, Xorg use HAL to autodetect keyboards and mice (Above Solution)
FreeBSD IS NOT Linux. Maxiumum differences are in kernel && base system, and a average but important differnce in third-party app/util compiling/installing.
So, If you want to use freeBSD you must review it's manuals from scratch.
Does FBSD 8.0 support the Broadcom BCM 4312 wireless NIC...? and 64 bit support for Nvidia GPU...?
Then you must either reboot, or run:
Broadcom BCM 4312 wireless NIC
The bwi(4) driver supports Broadcom BCM43xx based wireless devices:
Apple Airport Extreme
Apple Airport Extreme
Compaq R4035 onboard
Dell Wireless 1470
Dell Truemobile 1400
Linksys WPC54G Ver 3
Linksys WPC54GS Ver 2
US Robotics 5411
>>64 bit support for Nvidia GPU<<
NVidia binary drivers for hardware OpenGL rendering
in X, using the GLX extensions
Supported Architectures:i386 && amd64
It features x86-64 (amd64)
support. In order to use this driver release, your system will need to have
either FreeBSD 7-STABLE after 702106 or FreeBSD 8.0 and above.
Both the FreeBSD/x86 and FreeBSD/x86-64 driver packages include 32-bit Linux
ABI compatibility libraries; 64-bit Linux libraries may be included with a
future release (when support for Linux/x86-64 compatibility is added to
FreeBSD/amd64). The FreeBSD/x86-64 package does not include the FreeBSD/x86
OpenGL libraries; however, the libraries shipped with the FreeBSD/x86 driver
package have been tested on FreeBSD/x86-64.
Port was updated to serve both versions seamlessly. No need to specify
anything to distinguish between architectures.
amd64 (EM64T) (x86-64)
AMD Athlon 64
Multi-core Intel Xeon processors except Sossaman
The single-core Intel Xeon processors “Nocona”, “Irwindale”, “Potomac”, and “Cranford”
All Intel Core 2 (not Core Duo) and later processors
All Intel Pentium D processors
Intel Pentium 4s and Celeron Ds using the “Cedar Mill” core
Some Intel Pentium 4 and Celeron D that using the “Prescott” core
normally whenever i have that kind of problem i just edit the xorg.conf file; in the serverflags section i make sure the AllowEmptyInput option is set to false i.e.
Option AllowEmptyInput false
whixh will make sure the keyboard and mouse are never disabled
Thanks guys, I certainly will try out your suggestions.
Currently my machine is downloading a whole lot of stuff (ports) from ftp://freeBSD.org. This is because someone sad I do not have any files under X11 in my hard disk. THe unfortunate part is that its taking days to complete the download :-(
