i'm trying to get freebsd, but i can't find any download site for it. does anyone know of one?
This thread is 18 days old ... dunno where cabmustang has been.
downloading FreeBSD on 56k dialup
It only takes 27 hours to get it on 56k actually, I know from experience
for cd1 right ??
Yup, thats all you need to get up and running tho, the rest can be grabbed later (or by DSL owning minions )
The amount of Linux and BSD distributions that I've downloaded over 56k is stupid, all I gotta say is thank god for download managers
well if I was on 56k I would just buy the sets for 25 bucks and have them ship it
If I like the linux distro I try to help them and buy the thing, actually donate to Slackware every year as well.
Installing FreeBSD over XP and failing horribly?
Heard lots of talk about FreeBSD recently ... might give that a shot too
FreeBSD its grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat
Just like Frosties!
yeah i should probably just buy it, but i'm completely broke and need a new power supply. and downloading on 56k is sloooooooooow especially with a no name provider, downloads at like 2.5 kbs
FreeBSD is widely used by ISP's and Such .. It is a nice Linux Distro ... I have it and will probably put it on my server when it is done ...
Correction: FreeBSD is not linux ... it's BSD Unix.
Any Screen Shots of the BSD? I have the CD's but i havent installed it
NetRyder, yer right : BSD IS NOT LINUX
Alex, There are no true screen shots when it comes to *nix it's primarily a CLI meaning there's not much point having a screen capture, there are of course WindowMaker, KDE, Gnome, etc which you can use for your desktop environment (after installing and configuring X *grumble* )
here is a nice windowmaker shot if you need an example ... mmmmm windowmaker
heres a screenshot of ls -l in /usr/ports/
This was actually taken with PuTTY on XP, but the effect is the same
