Re: [pfSense] Install CD - I don't know where to go with this

That or the wrong image was burned to the disc...

Mark - which ISO did you download? As for doing a boot image on USB I 
found that to be pretty simple but I made the image on my Mac and not in 
Windows.

I used WinISO, which lets me fiddle with the boot record, so I burned a CD
and then made an ISO from it and the ISO has a boot record.

But it won't boot.  I went through the same exercise with Oracle Linux and
got the same results.  The same machine boots up a Windows OS just fine.

[pfSense] thermo sensors from motherboard

2014-10-31 Thread Martin crysman Zahradník
Hello, please, I am a newbie to pfsense, I just want to ask if the termo
sensors available to system (on motherboard etc.) are available in the
pfsense user frontend? Is pfsense able to send mails (with the
temperature included)?

Thanks a lot

Re: [pfSense] Install CD - I don't know where to go with this

2014-10-31 Thread Walter Parker
I use imgburn to burn all of my pfSense CDs (and Windows, Linux and FreeBSD
DVDs). I second the recommendation. If you have picked the correct image,
it should boot unless there is something strange with the HP hardware. The
fact that a Windows disk boots doesn't prove that hardware isn't strange
or have some sort of other issue. I'd double check that everything is
correct.

 What can you do? The speed increase from SSDs in a PC means its almost

 And in a firewall/appliance, the benefits from no moving parts/lower

 As for Nano, I thought it mounted almost everything as RO and only
 changed settings to write down settings changes, and RRD databases etc
 on reboots?
 
 I think I’ve already responded to this.
 
 nano is a  10 year old “solution” to the problems that existed at the time.

 That doesn’t mean it’s a bad solution, but though it’s author is a brilliant
 individual, he obviously didn’t envision SSD in 2004.
 
 Are you saying the nano release only covers the boot-slices?

See how the there are three partitions in the below?  Observe the sizes 
(“922257 sectors”) of the first two.

$ file pfSense-2.1.5-RELEASE-1g-amd64-nanobsd-20140825-0744.img 
pfSense-2.1.5-RELEASE-1g-amd64-nanobsd-20140825-0744.img: x86 boot sector; 
partition 1: ID=0xa5, active, starthead 1, startsector 63, 922257 sectors; 
partition 2: ID=0xa5, starthead 1, startsector 922383, 922257 sectors; 
partition 3: ID=0xa5, starthead 0, startsector 1844640, 102816 sectors, code 
offset 0x31

 I thought the nano/embedded versions also write less to the disk.
 I don't have a full install handy to check, but the nano install
 definitely mounts the drive RO, and all runtime stuff (/var, /tmp) is
 run out of RAM disks.

Yes, and I am aware of the differences with the “nano” builds.

CF devices don’t have the same type of sophisticated wear-leveling and virtual 
block remapping that modern SSDs and eMMC devices have.

Yes, I am saying that compression (which on a modern 64-bit Intel / AMD CPU is 
way faster than disk I/O (yes, even to a SSD)) and making those sectors 
available to the drive has
potentially far greater impact than the crippled nature of the “nano/embedded” 
version.

We’re not changing this for pfSense software version 2.2, but you can bet 
$CURRENCY to $SNACK_FOOD that it’s being evaluated and tested for something 
subsequent.

/divDoes windows 7 actually burn disc images? Have you tried active ISO

 The fact that a Windows disk boots doesn't prove that
 hardware isn't strange or have some sort of other issue. I'd double
 check that everything is correct.

I've seen several machines that will only optical-boot a Windows install
disk.  Nothing else.

For these machines, I have been able to take a disk drive created on
another machine, put it in the difficult machine, and it will boot.
But that's booting a spinner, not optical media.
