Hello, I have installed FreeBSD on a server and on a laptop. The laptop is more important in indicating some of the changes in FreeBSD. After all, you need graphics, wireless, sound, etc. for a good experience. All of these currently are and have been issues for both Linux and FreeBSD.
I actually am using FreeBSD on a laptop that had Debian installed. There were too many issues with hardware on an older laptop that, from everything I found, should have worked well. Problems with suspend/resume, graphics card, wireless, and sound. I had been reading about improvements in FreeBSD and decided to try it. There were no issues with sound, graphics, and minor suspend/resume. Wireless did not work in 6.3, but was simple in 7.0. I had to add 5 lines to loader.conf, 3 to rc.conf, and create a wpa_supplicant.conf file. All done. My only remaining issue was initial desktop configuration of kde/kdm. That brought me to DesktopBSD and PC-BSD. Both worked well enough, though PC-BSD is better. I've had to update the kernel to 7.0 to get wireless working, non-trivial but simple. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
