halt -p should powerdown your computer, unfortunately this doesn't work for all mainboards because of ACPI differences/perks.

Yes, the wpi(4) driver, which is included in FreeBSD.

Doesn't the msk(3) driver (Again, included with FreeBSD) work?

In any case, you can extract this archive with:
% tar xf installbsd70x86v10.51.2.3.tar.gz

math/pspp is at version 0.6.0, you probably have an out-of-date portstree.
See chapter 4.5.1 of the FreeBSD handbook for instructions on how to update your ports tree.

All usefull documentation is provided in fvwm(1) manul page,
if you are interested in something special there is offical fvwm forum. (but feel free to PM me - I'm fvwm fan)

I personally find the http://fvwm.org/doc/unstable/index.h... documentation and the manual pages for the flibin' virtual window manger the best resource -- gorking at it untill it makes sense or your head explodes (which probably requires both to do really awesome things).

Creating the basic configuration file through the menu will yield a fairly basic but "as expected" enough configuration but a personalized setup is better fvwm is very much a build it your way frame work imho.


ps:

fvwm-devel / 2.5 is stable enough for typical usage

You'll need Freebsd 7.0 to use those devices.

well, hi all i'm i confuion now i read several articles about freebsd and i want to ask :
1. is emulating other os make that os superior against the other (example: window can emulate freebsd and freebsd can't)?
2. what should i do first postinstallation compile the kernel or install desktop environment and prepackaged software?
3. is there any simple to understand how tos like mounting flashdisk automatically from any user, , monting cd withouth terminal, setting xdm or kdm, etc... ?

thanks

My babelfish seems to be unable to translate this to English.

The order doesn't matter, but you probably don't want to compile a kernel in the first place, it had no performance/stability benefits, and only takes up time...

The only reason to compile a custom kernel these days are:

0/ you want or need something that needs adjustments to the kernel configuration build -> the handbook explains how to build a custom kernel.

1/ you want/need to build a custom kernel with support for one of your devices that lacks support for building/using the driver as a Loadable Kernel Module (LKM).

2/ Your computer has so little resources that you need a bare bones kernel -> unlikely unless your installing to a Toaster Oven or some other embedded job.

3/ You want to recompile the kernel for your arch. E.g. FreeBSDs x86 kernel uses 'cpu I486_CPU' as the lowest common demoninator, most consumer PCs are i686 based or better.

so, the conclusion is :
1. emulating other os don't make that os more superior than other os
2. i need a stable environment to make a custom kernel
3. i don't need to make custom kernel if i don't need it, right? but i need it to activate wpi kernel like Martin Turmoij says and msk too,right? so do i need to delete unescessary device recognition example: i dont have realtek netcard do i have to delete it? how could we now the one needto delete and the one that not need to?

'emulating other os'

can mean many things when people are not sure of what you mean.


For me, it means simulating the look, feel, behavior, and design of another operating system -> for example GNU/Linux are made to resemble UNIX.


For you it could mean running an operating system within an emulator, which has jack-shit to do with operating system superiority -> it is to do with emulator superiority ^_^

For some it might mean things like the support for FreeBSD, Linux and Windows ABIs.




If you need to build a custom kernel to get the wpi driver working, you'll need to -> someone here might know if there is a lkm option or not.


FreeBSD 7s GENERIC kernel configuration has the msk driver compiled in.


It is no problem to remove devices from the kernel config that you don't need when building a custom kernel, just remember you may have to recompile the kernel if you ever get one of thoe devices.

yes, i've tried to type x -config or x --config to make a configuration file and there is a message like this :
there is no such file or directory. i'm sure i've installed x with the distribution.

Unix is case sensitive garfield270584:

% X -configure
or
% xorgconfig

You mean the msk(4) driver?
Does the interface show up when you enter the command:
% ifconfig

If so, then try using dhcp:
# dhclient msk0

Of for a static address:
# ifconfig msk0 192.168.100.10 netmask 255.255.255.0

Try using 1 xinit instead of startx.

1. i've tried ifconfig and there is no marvell interface. what's the problem?
2. oh yeah, i'm going to repair my school computer tomorrow cause it cannot open freebsd slice at all maybe something is wrong when i install freebsd into it.
3. i read a zfs thread from this forum too and i've tried it, it works :
1. is there any risk if i do that step? what is the risk ?
2. what the benefit of zfs truly ?
