Hi there, try using standard (also minimal) way, and that's 1. unplug your keyboard/monitor (if any) 2. -P in /boot.config 3. std.9600 in your /etc/ttys That worked for me dozens of times. It also gives you flexibility in case you decide to use keyboard/monitor at some point in future. Hope that helps -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.8 (MingW32) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iEYEARECAAYFAke4+G8ACgkQo6C4vAhYtCBVjwCZAQ8d8YXKfBYmojSetVedrlQr XxcAnRlFQVkm9t3kEnFcrGklh0+Rdpha =c661 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
