I just received an Email from the Mailing List advicing me to create a /etc/resolv.conf... He was also kind enough to provide me our DNS... domain oisca.org nameserver 188.8.131.52 nameserver 184.108.40.206 I created a /etc/resolv.conf with this one as what you have suggested When my system starts: The booting process halts for a few minutes saying "continuing vi sessions:" and then boots and starts gdm... after gdm starts, I can log in but I can use my built-in mouse... after logging in...it halts for a few minutes before I can use my built-in mouse... when i invoked this command: # host freebsd.org halts for a few minutes to read and then... #host not found, try again Any suggestions on what happened... I would really appreciate it....Thank you... Rommel B.
