Default How to use safe mode setting for normal booting (some solved
Hai Hard working guys,

I have installed pcbsd 1.4 on my computer using VESA for graphics installation
(On Normal installation screen did not fit on my monitor). After installation
the machine is rebooted and I got a dual pcbsd initial graphical display screen
on left and right of the top half of the screen, then computer seems to be halted.

Switched off and started in safe mode and worked smoothly and
it shows 1024 x 768 resolution and i got a full screen.

Rebooted again and allow to boot in normal mode and again system hangs
after displaying the above dual screen( no keys working)

So I started in safe mode again and using sysinstall and
change the following line in /etc/ttys
ttyv4 "/PCBSD/bin/pdm" xterm on secure
to the line below
ttyv4 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" cons25 on secure
saved the file and rebooted in normal mode and got the textmode screen.

Now I run the command
# Xorg -configure
and tested it using the following command
# Xorg -config /root/xorg.conf.new
it displays a graphical screen with mouse X pointer, after pressing ctrl+alt+bs
i got the # prompt and copied /root/xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11 folder as xorg.conf.
Then allow to boot in normal mode but failed.
( I had played with xorg.conf several times after searching on google, but no help)

How I could correct the problem?

I am posting this using safe mode with my broadband internet connection
and i can send these details to forums.

The vmware image of pcbsd 1.4 is working with windows xp on this computer
without any problem.

Q1.Is any limitations for safe mode?
Q2.How I change the default boot mode to safe mode?
Q4.How I could use the same dispaly settings for normal booting?
Q3.Can I increase the waiting time in initial boot option screen before auto booting ?

My System Spec:

Pentium D processor 2.80GHZ 800 MHZ FSB 2 MB l2 cache with SATA 80 GB HD
Asus P5RD2-VM Board
SOCKET 775,ATI RC410 (ATI RADEON Xpress 200 series)
ULI M1575 FSB 800, SATA SAMSUNG HD 80GB
LG DVD WRITER IDE TYPE
DDR2 1 GB MB RAM

Default Re: How to use safe mode setting for normal booting ( pcbsd 1.4)
Sorry for the urgent posting,

I Found some solutions

By increasing the value autoboot_delay in /boot/loader.conf, solved the delay problem in bootmenu

By selecting ( option 2 in boot menu) boot pcbsd with acpi disabled solved my booting problem and pcbsd 1.4 boots successfully.

But how to set this option as default boot option ?
