Well, if you really need to get that adapter working, I'd try posting in FreeBSD's forums. Your post would get a lot of exposure there. The FreeBSD forums aren't nearly as vicious as Debian's, but there are a few users who will probably grind your gears, like DutchDaemon. Just don't feed the trolls.

Yes apparently no one is on the same page as myself over here. Seems everyone here just wants to down me and not help. I have a great idea, since I have the makefile from FreeBSD to just install that system and create the driver. Once that is done load it onto this free MP3 player(2gig) then reload PCBSD and install the FreeBSD driver. Am thinking that system might be more apt to make the file.

Have done a lot of research on all forums related to FreeBSD, PCBSD and linux. Have compiled a lot of information on my own. Seems most people here are more concerned about minding the P's and Q's then helping the situation and giving documented advice. Present company not included(Cobalt). As requested by another member I also posted the ifconfig and usbconfig this morning but have had no response. Guess I was foolish to think I would get a response. Well am off to the experiment mentioned above. Hopefully will suceed and I will post it.

You didn't have the decency to even put what continent you are on, but surely you can understand that people on the other side of the world from you (wherever that is) will sleep at a different time from you. It is even possible that people in you own locale will sleep at varying times. The first thing that I did when I got to my computer today was check out your posts. However, after reading the above, my enthusiasm for helping you is somewhat dampened.

As for the posting of your usbconfig and ifconfig outputs, it is about time. Withholding those was not a nice thing to do. Talking instead about things which are over people's heads (certainly mine) is not going to get you far. In fact I feel like you are just teasing me.

Nevertheless, I will go over to your other thread and leave some information about networking. I too am just a beginner so what I have to say will be rudimentary.

You're lucky anybody has bothered to respond to your posts at all, since up till now they've consisted mainly of personal opinion and vague complaints without any facts that would allow someone so inclined to assist you.

If Jesus can forgive, just maybe you can also Weixiong. Here is more results and still looking for real assistance, not cut downs. I don't copy paste your remarks, so why don't you just help instead of hurt. Everything I did looked good but no results please notify of further actions or commands I could be entering wrong.

Kernel module generation


The script will now try to generate the kernel driver module.
This is the last step. Once this module is generated, you should
be able to load it just like any other FreeBSD driver module.

Press enter to compile the stub module and generate the driver
module now:

Generating Makefile... done.
Building kernel module... done.
Cleaning up... done.

The file rt2870_sys.ko has been successfully generated.
You can kldload this module to get started.

Press return to exit.

mr bosak

why don't you get Free BSD cd set?

here's what's available at amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_sc...+cd&sort=price

Have A Nice Day!

I formatted yesterday and installed FreeBSD. Of course, since I am not the best at command line interface, I did not have any luck. It would have taken me a very very long time to find the files on a usb connection to my MP3 player(free one I got for attending a meeting) that I use as a flash drive.

If I had money, I would not be in this boat and would simply order the USB adapter, that Cobalt gave me a link for. (would buy in an instant as I am a true ASUS fan). Unfortunately, I am unemployed and attending College at Columbia State in Tennessee. The training I am receiving is for an A.A.S in Business Information Technology. The state pays for my training. I also recieve $120/wk in benefits.

My spouse and I are barely making it. I am striving to become well-educated in more areas than my studies. Mostly, I do not play games and consider the added studies of this OS, very rewarding. Sure, as with building cars(restoration/engines) there is a major frustration, When you reach for the stars, and fall on your face.

Was the same when I built my first computer(over 10 years, present is No.5). I screamed moaned and groaned. Finally, I got thru the frustration and found it interesting and exciting. Same is with this system. The more I read the more I am hooked. Damned OS is worse than drugs! I look forward to the day I fix these errors(with someone's help) and get it all working good. Take care pbu

Here is more information to go along with previous. To me it appears as though modeswitch is active but am unsure. Still, I have no connection all though I have done everything ever mentioned here and FreeBSD. Whatever the problem is, seems to be about 10 miles over my head(LOL) Got to laugh is kind of funny and am actually calling those command windows "HAL". I mean Hal says one thing and then another, not real reliable sometimes.

Anyway when you work as much on this as I have you start getting to laugh at things or you would really be upset and say something you will regret forever. Without further rambling here is more results:

mr brosak

help is on the way!

pretty sure i have boxed set Slackware.

it's a release or two back.

i will find it and have it ready to mail to you.

having USB memory to deal with is adding extra

layer of complication.

installing PC-BSD and FreeBSD under ideal conditions is

not a walk in the park.

Have A Nice Day!

Is very kind of you to help with this situation. One day, I guarantee I will do my best in helping others with this OS. I love it and am not going to give up. Currently, I made a terrible mistake.(I sure do some dumb things!)

Under superuser(Kdesu dolphin) I edited the loader.conf file to list my driver. I edited and closed not in mousepad which was a fatal error. This caused another, what I believe to be an unknown format type file being saved. I can no longer boot up. Now that I realize what a mistake I made it is too late. So someway have to either come up with proper command to get those files deleted and entry fixed in loader.conf or format/reload.

Such is the world of computing! Believe me I made far worse mistakes when I first started. Seems though if we never make mistakes as such, we never learn! Anyway, I deeply appreciate your generosity. Am looking forward to that program. I love programs and OS's better than most things in life!

Sure I have so many different interests in life, but learning is truly the best thing ever. Secondly, is using that knowledge to help someone! Is the greatest treasure on this earth and nothing can ever beat that. Bob
