Unable to install PC-BSD 10.1

Hello.

I have tried now three times to install PC-BSD 10.1 on a laptop bought 
for the purpose.

The laptop on which I have been trying to perform the installation, is 
an Acer V3-772G, with 16GB RAM (which, when I gaet PC-BSD installed, I 
want to have increased to 32GB), an NVidia GEForce GT750 graphics card, 
and a 1TB HDD. I have been trying to install PC-BSD into partition 10 
(the system uses GPT, not FAT, so it is not a logical partition).

When I set up the partitions, using the partition manager in the Debian 
7.5 Linux installation, I did not set partition 10 up to be used by 
Debian, so it is not formatted.

I have successfully (well, kind of; the soundcard does not work with it) 
managed to install Debian Linux 7.5, running the XFCE desktop 
environment, with GRUB 2 (although, that did not find the Windows 8 
operating system, but that is no great loss, as I found it too difficult 
to use, anyway, and forgot the password, so can't do anything with it, 
except delete it).

Apart from the PC-BSD 10.1 installation process not accepting network 
connection other than by using DHCP (why do these installations of operating 
systems, default to DHCP?), It refuses to accept that 95GB is more than 
50GB.

A copy of the installation log file content, is below.

Thank you in anticipation, for any assistance to get PC-BSD 10.1,

Virtualbox shared folder mount

Hi again,
I have installed PC-BSD on virtualbox, host Lubuntu.
I made a shared folder and named it "lubuntu".
Now, bidirectional clipboard works, so I think the guest-additions are 
properly working.
Can I check this?

I try mount -t vboxfs lubuntu /mnt

This doesn't working. I get back: "mount: lubuntu: Operation not 
supported by device".

How do I solve this problem?

Lazarus installed but: Error: directory rtl not found

Hi there, I am new to PCBSD but I like it. Therefor I ask some help.
I try to install Lazarus, I try to install Lazarus on all my OS's. Used 
Appcafe to do.
My PCBSD is still running on Virtualbox with as hast Lubuntu.

Now the error I get is "directory rtl not found". Installing fpc bt 
downloading a tar from there website doesn't help.
To be sure I installed PCBSD fresh. So clean install and direct the problem.

How to solve this problem?

Re: Fwd: PAM and PCDM

PCDM does not support non-local users at the moment. We are currently working on this.

You will need to switch to using KDM for the time being if you need LDAP support right away.

Hello, I have a fresh installed workstation with PCBSD 10 and configured LDAP-Authentication by hand, not using the gui. For ssh, su and kdm it works well, but in PCDM I only see the local user. I also configured /etc/pam.d/login. How do I have to configure PCDM to work with PAM and LDAP like the other applications?

pc-thinclient install issues

We are having issues installing the thin client server using pc-thinclient. The install script will error out and we have not been able to continue.

 

We have tested using the 10.0 release and 9-release downloaded today with both desktop and server versions.

 

Extracting FreeBSD environment… This may take a while…

cp: /usr/local/etc/pkg-pubkey.cert: No such file or directory

Updating repository catalogue

ERROR: Error 3: pkg –c /usr/home/thinclient install –y pcbsd-utils

 

Thanks

pkg upgrade checksum problem

I'm trying to upgrade the packages on 9.2-release
and apparently one of the packages has an
incorrect checksum(see below).

How do I proceed and get all the packages
on my system upgraded?

Here is my CLI(s):
sudo pkg-static upgrade
The upgrade will require 561 MB more space

1 GB to be downloaded

Proceed with upgrading packages [y/N]: y
docbook-1.4_1.txz 100% 2216     2.2KB/s   2.2KB/s   00:00
pkg-static: docbook-1.4_1 failed checksum from repository

System Info:
$ uname -v
FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE-p1 #0: Sat Nov 16 04:38:22 UTC 2013 
root@...:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC

$ pkg -v
1.2.5

pkg upgrade problems

I'm having a problem with the pkg utility and upgrading packages.
I've read various websites and the blog on "End of the PKG Woes"
but I still can't get this to work.

When I run "sudo pkg upgrade" from the CLI the result is:
"Updating repository catalogue"
"ERROR: Failed getting packagesite"

Then, I tried "sudo pkg-static upgrade" which resulted in:
The upgrade will require 523 MB more space
1 GB to be downloaded
Proceed with upgrading packages [y/N]: y
pkg-static: 
http://pkg.cdn.pcbsd.org/9.2-RELEASE/amd64/All/perl5-5.16.3_4.txz: Not Found

The process just stops there and no packages are upgraded.

pkg -v
1.2.5

uname -v
FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE-p1 #0: Sat Nov 16 04:38:22 UTC 2013

Originally, I had pkg version 1.2.3 and I thought that might be causing
the problem. So, I installed the latest version(1.2.5) from ports but that
didn't fix it.

9.1 9.2; video

Greetings,

After years away from freebsd, last used it supporting freebsd desktops for MindSpring in a call center,
I'm trying it again at home.

While I'm still amazed at the speed, stability, and memory management of freebsd, I have 2 questions.

1. I have two 32 bit netbooks that can't go beyond 9.1 pcbsd (zfs?), but updated to freebsd 9.2 on top of pcbsd
9.1, seemingly without fault, what problems may I encounter running this "split" system?

2. I've installed 4 linux distros and pc-bsd on these netbooks, and only redhat's fedora can handle dual
monitors correctly. I haven't been able to google an answer to making the others handle dual monitors as
well as fedora 19. Suggestions?
