I installed FreeBSD 5.0 this weekend at home and removed it five hours laters. Two problems made this use of this OS prohibitive for me, although I was hoping to stop using Debian and start using FreeBSD.
1) Awful performance on the sound subsystem under heavy load. If I copy large files, or start the X-Window while playing an MP3, it would simply stop playing while the disk is being accessed. 2) (the most important) I have a second HD with all my data in ext3. Although I could remove the journal and use it as a ext2, it simply didn't work as expected and eventually it became corrupted and the ext2utils could'nt repair it. When I installed Debian again, it spent more then 40 min fsck the disk. 3) Really degraded performance on X-Window and Galeon. their performance under Debian (xfree 4.1) is MUCH more smoother and even perceivably faster! Can anybody here confirm if these are common problems, and if there are any settings I might tune for their removal? I really wish I could change to FreeBSD. ______________________________________________________________________ Post your free ad now! http://personals.yahoo.ca To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
