I have been trying to add my Toshiba P15-S409 to your list of compatible laptops, but I keep getting a "Copcha failed" message. If you would like to add it, the data is as follows:

Tony Henrie
Toshiba Satellite P15-S409
ACPI fully functioning (the rest I don't know)
Running PCBSD 1.5 (FreeBSD 6.3), also worked with PCBSD 1.4.1 (FreeBSD 6.2)
Atheros 5212 internal wireless 802.11b/g fully supported.
Using Nvidia 169.12 video driver, vert refresh rate set at 60-120

Hey, I was recently given a brand new dell laptop, because I am moving out and going to a University, so I needed my own computer. The computer I have at home is slow and filled with spyware, mostly due to my little sister and all the crap she downloads. I want to take really good care of my new laptop, so does anyone have any advice? What should I avoid (such as, kinds of sites)? What programs (free or inexpensive) should I use to protect the laptop? How can I maintain its speed? Thank you.

FreeBSD is not supsetible to 99.9% of malware you will find on the web.


This is not a Windows support forum

Usually a good start is to remove Windows, go ask for help in the "Installation" section, I'm sure we can answer your questions, there.

Spybot, Zone Alarm and AntiVir all offer free programs for Windows machines. But, as has been mentioned, an OS other than Windows would be even better protection. Preferably PC-BSD if your laptop is compatible. :-)

Can this conspiracy be joint? I didn't get an answer to my NTFS problem. Or is it just that my Dell Latitude C610 isn't fully compatible? On my DualCore with PS/2 mouse I never have a mouse while installing and never tried more than that. Actually it works much better on laptops - if there was a powersaver on. It was not visible for me. Maybe it was an angel?

Not any USB-WLAN recognition from PC-BSD, but from FreeBSD in the background. And no NTFS read!!!!! Shall Mark Shuttleworth lend you a hand?

And to the mentioning of spyware etc.. If you don't use WINE it's great. If you use it - normal in 1.5x - you have Windows viruses. And you got to check if the firewall has the right device. In UBUNTU Ultimate it's the same.

Not sure how similiar the D610 is, but I believe Vermaden has a Dell C600 laying around; might ask him via PM or post on DaemonForums.org. As to USB WLAN / NTFS / WINE, I would suggest a thread of their own ;-)
