Hi, my name is Claude, and I'm new to FreeBSD. I've installed it on a hard drive by itself, and I get it to boot. The install seemed to have completed without a glitch.
My problem is that I expected the booting process to finish in the graphical user interface. Instead, it stops at a CLI prompt. Maybe I did something wrong. I tried re-configuring by booting off the CD, and I selected KDE as my user interface. But something in the configuration goes wrong, and it tells me to select a simpler interface. I've tried a couple of the others, with the same result.
I did not modify anything in the kernel. Is that the problem? My computer has a Soho P4X400 Dragon Lite MB, an Intel Celeron 2.2 GHz processor, 256 MB of DDR400 memory, an Nvidia GeForce2 video card, and otherwise runs Win2000 and WinXP Pro flawlessly.
I've read all sorts of help files, but am still pretty lost. Can you advise me as to how to proceed from here? Is there a forum I can post this to?
Thank you very much!
