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.

To be clear, is this system using legacy GRUB or GRUB2?

That section has been updated for 9.1. Does the updated version help to get the correct entry?

Does this mean that GNOME will not be able to be set as the default desktop?

Actually, this is simply an automated choice of default (determined by some quality of the machine to be installed upon). It will pre-select between those two supported desktops during install, but for better or ill, the user may still modify or choose alternatives. Another automated choice of default relates to ZFS as the filesystem, which I believe is determined by two things- 64bit and greater than 2GB RAM, but the criteria for ZFS has changed from beta to rc1, and may change again for rc2 and final release.

I wish you success in your endeavors!

Query about PC-BSD 9.1 and multiple booting

Hello.

I am wondering whether PC-BSD 9.1 will come with GRUB (version 2?)
included, and automatically configure it, or, be able to automatically
configure an existing installation of GRUB, so that GRUB will
automatically find PC-BSD and offer it as an option, in providing
multiple boot options.

I have been running Debian Linux; on another computer, I have Debian 5
installed, in addition to Debian 6 (the multifunction printer
software, apparently, instals on 5, but not on 6), and, on this
computer, I also have Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux installed.

On the other computer, and HP/Compaq NX5000, I had installed also
PC-BSD 9, but, when it rebooted, no option was available to boot into
PC-BSD 9, and I have not been able to get PC-BSD 9 as an option in the
installed GRUB on that computer.

Thus, while I have managed to instal PC-BSD 9, on a computer that has
other operating systems installed, I cannot boot into PC-BSD 9, as it
is not found by, and, I cannot get the bootloader configured to find
it with, GRUB.

So, I am wondering whether, when PC-BSD 9.1 is released, it will
incorporate GRUB so as to enable, in such a way, or otherwise cause,
GRUB to find and offer PC-BSD as a boot option, as I have been unable
to achieve that, and now have an inaccessible installation of PC-BSD
9.

Also, I note that, from what I have read thus far about PC-BSD 9.1, it
will only offer KDE and LXDE as defalt desktops;

"
Systems containing more than 2GB of RAM will default to the KDE
desktop and all other systems will default to the LXDE desktop.
"

Does this mean that GNOME will not be able to be set as the default desktop?

Thank you in anticipation.

EasyPBI (9.1-RC1), java/jdk16 PBI

Hi all -- 


Firstly: 9.1-RC1 (accidentally picked up the other day) is smashing. 

Secondly: I'm working on trying to build a PBI for java/jdk16 with EasyPBI. I'm afraid that I'm getting lost in the weeds. 

I have the required .tars from Oracle & FreeBSD; e.g.
bsd-jdk16-patches-4.tar.bz2
diablo-caffe-freebsd7-amd64-1.6.0_07-b02.tar.bz2
jdk-6u3-fcs-mozilla_headers-b05-unix-24_sep_2007.jar
jdk-6u3-fcs-src-b05-jrl-24_sep_2007.jar

and I've tried placing them in /usr/ports/distfiles, but EasyPBI doesn't seem to recognize them there. Is there another location to place them, or a way to point EasyPBI towards them? I tried using the Module Editor to include them as resources [that's probably incredibly wrong now that I think about it more], as well as treating the files as external links [I wasn't able to get that working].

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or guidance you can provide.
Cheers,
Bridger

PS You might be wondering "Why try to build JDK16 when OpenJDK is already a PBI?" I use an editor/testing environment for work that is built against Oracle's JDK; I've been getting some odd graphics-related errors and I wanted to try JDK16 to see if that fixed the problem.

spam on forums.pcbsd.org

Hello!

Due to the recent increase in spam on forums.pcbsd.org, a vbulletin site, I would strongly suggest the asirra captcha method that worked so well for the wiki. Unfortunately the available plugin version is in German. Perhaps assistance can be given to translate as needed and port to FreeBSD?

Being so upset with MS Windows, why do you not simply use Ubuntu, or
Debian (I am a Debian user) to format the whole of the hard drive, and
then install PC-BSD as the sole operating system on the computer?

I had installed PC-BSD 9 on an HP-NX5000, but could not get it found
by GRUB (that laptop now has also Debian 5 and 6 installed, but their
GRUB's could not find PC-BSD, so it is invisible), and I could not get
a solution to the problem, but, perhaps, if you installed PC-BSD 9 as
a sole operating system on the computer (I think it would be worth
checking for hardware compatibility for the whole of the computer,
first), it might work, and, boot, without problems?

unable to boot into pcbsd [no matter what !!! ]

I have been desperately trying to escape from the Gates Automatic
Operating System [GAOS] with no success.  You see, I cannot install
PCBSD for the simple reason that I am not able to make it boot on my
equipment,
A brand new Acer AMD Quad Core with the Windoze 7 virus preinstalled,
and a nearly worthless system BIOS that simply disregards user
selections regarding what to boot and in what order.  If the "trusted
boot" specification
in Windoze 8 is more annoying than this, I hope someone has the decency
to sue them under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act.  Your boot loader is
unceremoniously disregarded during those rare moments in which the BIOS
actually 
does what I have asked it to do.  I have a "striped RAID" that utterly
destroys a 500GB hard drive to house a <3GB operating system.  IF I
could get PCBSD to boot and IF it appears that the hardware would run
serendipitously,
my primal instinct to format the drive and expunge the accursed GAOS
would be difficult to suppress.

At some point perhaps your team can take an AM3407G-UW10P Acer and try
to determine why it is that this system is listening to a hard drive in
primal mode.  My understanding of the boot sequence is that our hardware
does 
not yet know what precisely it is, or how to proceed.  This does not
appear to be the case.  In fact, the hardware not only knows what it is,
but it also understands that an "alien" operating system is trying to
boot up and furthermore 
unless my carefully attentive monitoring is substantially in error, the
BIOS appears to make a choice to boot the GAOS partition even when I
have instructed it to boot *anything* except the hard drive first.  The
days of "hey, why don't we 
just disable the hard drive from the boot sequence?" appear to be over. 
No such option exists [Acer likely will not see another purchase from
me.]

Folks, it's a real problem and one that requires a solution before the
GAOS Gang simply locks you out.  If an aggrieved consumer files suit
under the Anti-Trust Act, DOJ will take 7-10 years. We need a viable
solution faster than the
United States District Court is able to proceed.  I wish I could tell
you *how* your boot loader is prevented from running; unfortunately I
cannot provide much useful information.  You may, however, rest assured
that I am no silly 
incompetent.  I have tried for 90 days and not once have I been able to
boot into PCBSD on this brand new platform.  I can barely get Ubuntu to
boot from a live DVD. Microsoft apparently sees PCBSD as the only real
competition

your fancy operating system runs on my brand new platform.

building Samba on 8.2 fails

Hello,

I had installed Samba35 and had it working with PAM and SSH, however after a reboot PAM broke. Kept getting
the error;
in openpam_load_module(): no /usr/local/lib/pam_winbind.so found

The file was actually in that path. Never the less, I tried re-installing;

portsnap extract && portsnap fetch update
cd /usr/ports/devel/libtool && make deinstall && make install clean
cd /usr/ports/security/krb5 && make deinstall
make KRB5_HOME=/usr/local install clean

and finally;
cd /usr/ports/net/samba35 && make KRB5_HOME=/usr/local install clean

With my fingers crossed I hoped for the best and yet I received the following error during compiling;

Subject: [PC-BSD Support] Does multimedia CD/DVD play on your system?
Hi folks,

When I tried to play music CD or film DVD on my PCBSD 9.0 64bit machine with all my multimedia-related applications such as VLC, MPlayer, KsCD, xmms etc, my system just does not play those CD/DVD at all. When I insert the disc into my DVD drive and then click on the play button on those application, the progress meter just move for less than a second and then it either

1. does nothing - if only one track/file is selected; or
2. switch to the next track in less than a second, and then switch to another next track in less then another second, and on and on - if more than one track are selected from the play list

So far I have not been able to play any multimedia disc on my PCBSD9 machine at all due to this symptom.

I wonder how many of you have encountered this issue? Have any of you been able to play multimedia discs on your PCBSD machine without doing any additional setting? What would have caused this issue?

Cheers,
Sam

Hello!

I also discovered that many multimedia applications do not seem to be able to play music directly from the CD.  Once I ripped the music to my HDD, they worked fine, so I believed it to be a deficiency of those applications.  However, I happened to try decibel for playing CDs directly, and it works nicely.. I may have had to adjust the input and or output devices within the settings, but that is all.  I have not compared this one functional multimedia application to the others to discover why it works.  Ordinarily I use Clementine (clementine-player) for streaming audio or playing music files.
