Greetings - I've got a new Netbook I'm itching to install FreeBSD on, and would prefer to avoid hassles by testing out the hardware with a LiveCD first. FreeSBIE seemed like an appropriate choice, but the website is out of commission, and what I read on the web seems to indicate the project is no longer maintained. There's the FreeBSD Live CD project, run by a Brazilian users' group, but it looks more complicated than I'd prefer. And I just discovered, through a posting on the Daemon Forums, the RoFreeSBIE project, run by some Romanians.
Where to start? I'm aware of the FreeBSD integrated fixit mode, but that's not what I'm looking for. I am looking for the FreeBSD equivalent of Knoppix Linux, which will run a graphical desktop and give me an idea if FreeBSD can work with my Atom dual core processor, Intel onboard NIC and Wireless, the dinky little webcam, and so on, even hardware that I wouldn't be able to identify by name in order to search the web for info. Has anybody had good or bad experiences with any of the above methods? A search of recent posts from this mailing list turned up precious little, and the RoFreeSBIE site looks very interesting. That's probably where I would start, but like I said, I'm curious to see if anyone on this list has had experience and would like to make recommendations. Otherwise, I'll let you know how it goes! _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
