TrueOS Install Stalled


It stalled at Panic.

Left me at db prompt.

How do I fix this please?

Only option I picked was Grub bootup instead of default TrueOS.

If it leaves you in a working console, type
Code:
dmesg
and post what it says

If not, grab a photo of screen output. Critical to your enquiry is the task it crashes on. If, for example, it says "Going off to check disks now" and it never comes back, you can guess what happened :-P

Thanks!

Backed off from TrueOS.

Installed last version of PCBSD.

Good ole' PCBSD made it through install!

Gave me a few scares. Had to set video to VESA. Have a run of the mill Nvidia card so that didn't happen before

with PCBSD 8.

Taking note of the FreeBSD features a little more now.

Will snoop around about upgrading to TrueOS.

Probably wait for next Version. Let it get sorted out.

Excellent that you have a work-around.

If you'd like you could help by taking a more active role in the waiting. The minimal to help would be posting that dmesg content here either as a text attachment or, much better, between [code] [/code] tags so the type of problem hardware can be known. Contributing as a beta tester can also help get such bugs fixed faster. It's not hard and is needed to keep the project moving forward.

And one important point, in addition to posting the dmesg here, have you also reported the bug yet so that it is known to the developers and can be worked on?

Appreciate it.

I will reread that list you made and see.

I will say that's quite a screensaver on PCBSD w/Lumina desktop.

Make's me feel real technical. Maybe I will learn to use FreeBSD with the commandline?

No. I came to may senses.Pheww!

How do I upgrade to TrueOS server?

Some preparation is needed first. In preparation for an 'upgrade', I would say that it would help to post the dmesg here, since there is difficulty with that specific hardware and the dmesg would show just which hardware you have the problem with. You should definitely report the bug so that it is known to the developers and can be worked on and (optionally) post the bug report number here so that we in the peanut gallery can follow along.
