i Miss You BSD but i been seeing Solaris
i been using Solaris alot recently especially the 2008.11 version
i Find at times it feels just too slow.
There are also times that i have experienced crashes.
Also if i kill a program (running process) using the
GUI method that forces a misbehaving program to close.
i find it is still in the running processes.
and i have to close it from there.
With Nvidia there had been A few times when i changed my screen resolution from 1280 X 1024 to back to 1025 X 760.
My screen would turn black andi would wait a few seconds for a prompt asking me if i am sure i want to keep that settting.
i never did see that prompt, So i had to reboot the machine. like i use to do with windows.except with the power off or reset since i was unable to even escape into another Virtual terminal like in BSD
Then that setting woud take effect with no problem
The reason i am using Solaris also is i have 2 UFS drives i had created in Solaris and i can not write to them unless i am using Solaris.
i had no problem mounting them in UFS Explorer from windows and not sure if i can mount them in BSD but if i can im sure it would be read only.
I MIss BSD because it moved much faster and it was rock solid like they say.
i did have fun building things from scratch
even though at times i still feel like a novice and i tend to
forget some things i use to know.i still have Notes from all my old question and answers as welll as old BSD Books i not sure them books will do me much good now since so many things changed alot.
Also if i do install BSD im wondering which Nvidia driver to use
for my Geoforce FX5500 woud it be the legacy driver or not.
Also i want to install my usual Second Life Chat program
and i know that is always a pain to to finally get going since it needs certain linux libs.and has to be tweaked ad tinkered with
ok im not crazy abot KDE4 eitehr yet and i do understad to
get back to classic mode i just right click the KDE Menu button unlock widgets and chosoe classic mode.
i might even stay with Gnome as i been using in Solairis or have both.
I miss you BSD and i guess im in love with you both
and there are times when you dissapoint me Solaris.
i will have to think this over lol
it does all boil down to my UFS Drives really.
i can not move the data off them theres at least 1 Terra bytes between them both.so im not sure if i can mount them read only or read and write from BSD or not
Anyways thanks for listening
The journey is better then the destination
