I've been reading the list for a few weeks now and trying
out 6.2STABLE. I've been using Linux for the past 6years and
dos/windows a lot longer before that. Now I'm trying out
something new and I really like it. Even better, there are
both a mailing list and a newsgroup for support, wahay! no
[expletive] forums! IMHO something that is done FOR the
users and for which I am truly grateful.
I've checked out all the main functions I want from FreeBSD
and had them all working (hehe, but since broke some) so I'm
happy it will do the things I want so far.
First question, what is recommended regarding doing updates.
Is it best to just do all of them? I have always had
problems doing this e.g. with Mandrake and other Linuxs and
so am reluctant, but if it is usual I'll give it a try. (I'm
also reluctant as I assume a full update will update xorg to
7.3 and I have 7.2 installed with the latest nvidia 9#
driver and it works beautifully so would rather stay with that.
I have read the Handbook, but still have a problem
understanding how to map my ext2 and ext3 partitions to the
UFS notation. e.g. I have a drive hda, it has a swap an
unused space and four partitions one of which is my home
partition hda7. How do I refer to this home partition using
ad0??? notation (as this is what I understand I need to do,
if not please enlighten). I have installed the ext2fs
utilities/drivers and can mount an ext2 fs written on dvd
I intend to do a completely fresh install and would like to
compile for my specific pc kit. Would I be best doing this
following installation and initial setting up? and is it
possible to load something from a package now and later
reinstall from ports?
