IPFW and PF firewall enabled

I sow that PCBSD-7.1 default installation has both pf and ipfw firewall enable.
I don't see any reason to do this. I’m missing something or just someone forgot to disable one on them.
Thanks.
Santiago

We used to just default to "pf" being enabled, however we ran across a 
few software packages which required ipfw to  function, and decided to 
just build it, and leave it open by default. However, this will probably 
change with PC-BSD 8.0. Any apps which rely on ipfw will need to be 
updated to use PF by then :)

Drivers for Canon MX series of multifunction printers

Hello, I'm just trying out PC-BSD and so far I like it.  I'm not a techie (although I probably know a little more about computers than the average home user), so I don't know how to write code, compile anything, command-line anything, whatever.  I'm just looking for a solid alternative to Windows that is more stable but doesn't force me into small amounts of hardware power for big $$$ (i.e., Apple Macintosh).

Getting to the point - When I was trying to install my Canon PIXMA MX700 multifunction printer last night after installing PC-BSD, I did not see it or any MX series Canon printers listed.  Are there any plans to make a PBI for the MX series for PC-BSD/FreeBSD?

Also, again since I'm not a techie (but I'm picking up on a few little things here and there), I'm a little lost in the area of installing a printer on a network with PC-BSD, even with the GUI.  Here's my situation: I have a NETGEAR WGR-614 wireless router.  The computer I installed PC-BSD on, though, is hard-wired with Ethernet, as is my printer in question.  How would I go about, in a strictly graphical way (no command line), add this printer?  Do I choose Network Printer, then Internet Connected Printer (I forgot exactly what it said)?  What do I put for "host"?  Is that the same as the IP address for the printer?  If so, how do I get the computer to talk to the printer every time if that IP is assigned by DHCP?  Do I have to make that a static IP, and if so, how?  Then what do I put in for directory right below that?  And getting back to the first issue, what driver do I choose from the list if MX700 is not there?  Is there a similar driver that works just as well?

On a completely side issue, just in trying out PC-BSD, the first night my VLC player crashed twice.  What's up with this?  I thought FreeBSD and Unix in general was pretty much "crashproof".  Oh well, at least when it crashed it only gave an error message with an OK and that was it; I was able to get out of it immediately.  Not like Windows, where I can oftentimes click "End Now" over and over until many of those windows pop up and nothing will work unless I physically turn off the computer or, sometimes, have to hit the button on the power strip!  I want no more of that crap in my computing life!!

Thanks,
Dale

PC-BSD PBI viewer and <what if> expanation

Is there a way to download a pbi and before installing it ask it what
changes its going to make to the system?  SOME PBIs are more invasive
than others and it would be nice to be able to look and see whats
going to happen before it does.

Example, the current qemu pbi still includes an old aqemu version that
is incompatible with the version of qemu that is installed.  would be
nice to know this BEFORE installing something that I just have to
uninstall later.

Why doesn't audio CD show up in Dolphin?

I can't get audio CD's to play in PC-BSD 7.1 (Galileo).  No icon even shows up in Dolphin or the "Computer" section of the launcher.  Is there a fix for this?  Also, I downloaded the Codecs PBI according to the Quick Start Guide.  Double-clicked it, entered my password, and nothing happened.  Well, at least no user feedback anyway.  I opened Xine and was able to get to the motion menu of one of my DVD's.  However, I could not play movie, go to chapter selection, nothing.  I tried to close out of the program, nothing.  (I thought this kind of thing was supposed to happen only in Windows!!!)  I finally had to turn the computer's power switch off.  What's the equivalent of Windows' Ctrl-Alt-Delete for such crashes?  Why am I getting such crashes in a supposedly flawless OS?  Could it be my hardware?  According to the Quick Start Guide again, I certainly meet the requirements (although I use an ATI video card, maybe that's it):

Dell Dimension 4400 Desktop, with:

Pentium 4 2.00 GHz
Crucial DDR266 640MB RAM
Western Digital 160GB IDE Hard Drive
ATI Rage 128 AGP (not sure if 2X or 4X) 16MB Video Card
Integrated Audio (whatever Dell Dimension 4400 included - you can find all the specs of everything on Dell's website)

In any case, when I'm not getting crashes (I also get them practically every time I use VLC Player), the system is running pretty sluggishly.

I know I have a lot of questions/issues, but I'm having a lot of problems and am just trying to get functional here.  I really want to love PC-BSD and sing its praises.

Dale

Error with RealPlayer

Hello.

I just installed linux-realplayer from the ports (on Galileo Edition). When i try to run:

% /usr/local/bin/realplay

(realplay.bin:24512): Gtk-WARNING **: Imposible encontrar el motor de estilos en module_path: «qtcurve»,

(realplay.bin:24512): Pango-WARNING **: No builtin or dynamically loaded modules
were found. Pango will not work correctly. This probably means
there was an error in the creation of:
  '/etc/pango/pango.modules'
You may be able to recreate this file by running pango-querymodules.

(realplay.bin:24512): Pango-CRITICAL **: _pango_engine_shape_shape: assertion `PANGO_IS_FONT

Pango-ERROR **: file shape.c: line 75 (pango_shape): assertion failed: (glyphs->num_glyphs > 0)

Can anybody help with this, please?.

Thanks you very much, in advance.

Rance,

If you wish to inspect a PBI pre-installation, you can always use the 
"extract" flag:

./<pbi> -extract

That'll extract its contents to a folder in your homedir and you can 
then inspect them before anything gets loaded up.
