Hello list, I am in the process of migrating to using FreeBSD (from Linux, which I would like to leave entirely behind, how does one make sure they don't install something that requires the Linux compatibility packages?
I have a working BSD system installed using DesktopBSD; [EMAIL PROTECTED] /usr/home/pineal]$ uname -v FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #0: Mon Jul 23 21:48:53 CEST 2007 I am using this on one partition of one of my drives. I have a second 40gb drive to do a new install to to take over when I have finished playing and discovering on this current setup. The problem I have is that I cannot get dvds to play. I have read the FAQ and the Handbook, I made the changes suggested i.e. adding devices, but still to no avail. What actually happens when I play a dvd is that the dvd will play sometimes for about 20 secs then I get an error dialog saying either I do not have sufficient rights or the dvd is empty. Trying to play a music cd is similarly wierd. On play the first track may play and if it does will last for about 20 secs, sometimes a track will not play at all and eventually skip to the next, but I never seem to get any longer than about 20 secs? I have a fresh install of FreeBSD 6.2 STABLE installed on my second drive waiting to hopefully set up correctly. I have done no updates at all at this point. Could someone please give me some guidance with this? neal. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
