re: install fails
rc2 reachs the disk set up screen and everything just stops, no HDD activity at all. the last time that I attempted to install pcbsd 1.0 rc2, using a disk set purchased directly from PC-BSD store, it sat at that screen for a half an hour, doing nothing..
So I just gave up and went online to the forums, using my eMac, and I read Kris Moore's
notice about the install bug.
The PC I use is a clone built with an Asus mobo #A7V333 (using a Via chipset) an a ATI
Radion 9100 graphics with an AMD Athalon processor 1.4gig and 1.5 gigs of RAM. I use
a hdd swap-out kit, that is a frame holder mounted in a 5.25 optical bay, with a carrier that actually holds the hdd, allowing me to use different hdd's (and therefore different distro's)
I use an Envision 17" LCD on this setup an haven't encounted any issues with it after using at least a half dozen or so different linux distros, including PC-BSD 8.3 which I 'm using today..
I'd appreciate any ideas you might have as I really like PC-BSD and I'm still too much of a newb to resolve some of the more serious issues I occasionly encounter :?
