FreeBSD

11 Sep 2006 • 1 min read

OK, so after much head banging with installed FreeBSD on my laptop because FreeBSD won't boot from an extended partition, unlike Linux I finally have this beastie installed.I spent a portion of the weekend hacking on baselayout and now have it booting and rebooting without error which is very nice indeed 😃 Once I get my wireless rt2500 card working on it, which requires I get the pcmcia bit working first then I'll be happy putting that into portage - package.masked of course ;)The bad news is that my laptops in-built ipw2200 doesn't seem to be supported yet - oh well, can't have everything I suppose.
