Query about dual and multiple booting of PC-BSD

Hello.

Is PC-BSD 9.1 intended to include being able to be automatically
detected by bootloaders that come with Linux, such as GRUB, as Linux
installations are automatically detected by GRUB?

As an example, on this computer, I have Windows 7 Professional, Ubuntu
Linux, and Debian Linux 6, installed, and, the installation of GRUB,
in the last installation of Linux, detects and offers as boot options,
the operating systems previously installed. It does that
automatically.

I would use PC-BSD 9.0 but have not been able to get it detected by GRUB.

I have Windows 7  and Debian Linux, installed on various systems, and
have PC-BSD 9.0 installed on a 32 bit system, to try it, but, as I
could not get it to work with GRUB, have not tried to install PC-BSD
9.0 on a 64 bit system, as PC-BSD 9.0 has so far, been too problematic
for me.

I have not been aware thus far, of either PC-BSD 9.0 or 9.1, being
able to be automatically detected by GRUB, and, if PC-BSD 9.0 would be
automatically detected by GRUB, I would have been trialling, and,
probably, using, it.

If it is not already intended, I suggest that it would be conducive to
expansion of the installation and use of PC-BSD.

zfs partitions or pools

Dear PC-BSD -

So since I have 2 drives that did not dismount properly I think I will  
reinstall the partitions.

Is the proper way to install zfs to install the disk mbr and then use  
zspool to create a tank?  I see that PC-BSD says that it now installs the  
OS as 4096 bit blocks.  How may I find where to tell the zspool that I  
wish 4096 as I have read you said previously the default was 512.

My OS SSD is dual boot so it is MBR.  I had been running my storage drive  
as GPT from a previous RC1 install.  Is that causing me a problem?

When using RC1 I installed Windows 7 UEFI [GPT] and then attempted to  
install RC1 in my other partition as GPT to no avail in an experiment.

Actually I guess I am asking where a quick and dirty tutorial would be  
located.

Scrubbing unclean disk

Hi PC-BSD -

I thought I would say also that under SU I issued this command:

fsck -y -F -t /dev/gptid/98d1fd52-f450-11e1-9426-c86000707666 and my  
machine executed the command.  Still after restarting I get the same error  
for each drive.  I have been advised previously that perhaps I should have  
tried zspool hence my question.

An error occurred while accessing '1.8 TiB Hard Drive', the system  
responded: org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.Volume.UnknownFailure: mount:  
/dev/gptid/98d1fd52-f450-11e1-9426-c86000707666: R/W mount of  
/media/98d1fd52-f450-11e1-9426-c86000707666 denied. Filesystem is not  
clean - run fsck.: Operation not permitted

Hi PC-BSD -

I have one available storage disk in my workstation and one available USB
backup disk.  Without being an expert after I installed 9.1 RC-1 I used
gpart to make my partition on each drive and format them zfs as GPT.  So I
do not have a pool I think to which they belong.  I have 9.1 RC-3 now and
I have been trying audio and video players.  So I caused the PC-BSD to
just close and reboot when I clicked on my DVD.  So now my storage and USB
disks are unclean and I cannot mount them.  FSCK of course has no command
for zfs file system.  From the forums if I had a pool I would use zspool
scrub [pool] and then zspool clear [pool].  How may I try that on a disk
that I have not included in a pool.  zspool list of course shows my root
partition as tank0.

PS - The Audacious audio player has really outstanding sound.  It took me

about 20 minutes to determine how to use it.  Actually I rebooted PC-BSD  
on 2 video players then I discovered that finally Dragon Player is working  
this build - although the video is really nice movement on the screen  
isn't quite smooth.

Problem configuring NETGEAR G54 Wireless USB adapter

Dear all,

Hello.

I have installed PC-BSD, latest version 9.0. After checking for the
supported wireless usb adapters, I found that NETGEAR G54 Wireless USB
adapter WG111V3 is supported by PC-BSD 9.0.

The driver urtw is loaded fine; I can see the wireless usb detected in
the network configuration; I can see that my network is detected and I
enter the security key.

The problem:
After all the configuration it still says, No carrier. Link status is
always DOWN. I think it should just work but there is some problem.

Request you to help me in setting up my wireless usb.
Thanks.

claws-mail and spelling


Hello,

I managed to rebuild claws (using optionNG) to use all the required
plugins, but now have problem with spelling (checker).

On Linux I used to use aspell and english & croatian dictionaries, but
I see that Free(PC)BSD port uses enchant, so wonder which dictionaries
I shoud use now?

Sincerely,
Gour

Have you tried linphone in AppCafe? The linphone website indicates that g729 support is available with
plugins, but doesn't say how to get those plugins.
