Hi Ion-Mihai Tetcu, Thanks for the response. I did create the user account using sysinstall and failed to login after system reboot. I deleted the profile and recreated the adduser command. It works.
I have created a log file using dmesg, but, I am unable to copy on to the floppy disc. When I try to mount the floppy with mount /dev/fd0 /mnt, it gives me error message: Device is not configured. I am trying to copy the log file to floppy disc so that I can attach this file to the e-mail running on windows system. I formatted the floppy using fdformat command, and when tried to mount, it gives me error message "incorrect super block". Now this format is not copatible with windows system. I also created another dos fat partition and tried to mount so that I could copy the log file to dos partition, it won't work. I have used this method to transfer the files on a Linux system. Is there a way to transfer files from FreeBSD to Windows? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Ion-Mihai Tetcu" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: "Admin" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Thursday, December 18, 2003 12:58 PM Subject: Re: FreeBSD 5.1 PowerPak Installation problem > [cc'ed back to the list] > > On Thu, 18 Dec 2003 12:36:37 -0000 > "Admin" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > Hi Ion-Mihai Tetcu, > > Hi, > > Please use reply all, so that a copy of the message gets to questions > list also. > > > The minimal system which I built earlier on my P4 2.53GHz system got > > corrupted during adding XFree86 package using sysinstall.
