OK, so far I have experienced a higher speed with the new PC-BSD, the
shut-down is almost instantaneous, the boot up is a lot faster, but I
have some issues with the network configuration and user creation.
I have already sent an email with some of the issues, but I was thinking
that I would summarize them in one emails and add a new one (all of
those experienced in 2 different machines and with LXDE as desktop):
- Creating user via the user management doesn't work. The
/home/<user> folder is created and empty, the owner of the folder is
root:wheel and not the user itself. if I chown the folder then I can
login with suck user, else I get errors like "folder is full" or "folder
does not exists"
- manually setting the IP of a network card with netmask
"255.255.255.0" gives an error that the netmask should be in range
between "0..255". I set it to 126.96.36.199 and then manually modified in the
- changing the hostname completely stops the network from working. I
was not able to reach out with dig, but I could ping direct IP address
in my internal network. Wondering if maybe some files needs to be moved
or services restarted (I tried to restart the network unsuccessfully).
But anyway, I would suggest a request to reboot when the hostname is changed
- Setting the proxy to "http://sub.domain.com" removes everything but
the "http" from the configuration
- DNS settings were lost after I changed the hostname.
- If you try to customize the DNS, then press the "public server",
then pressing "OK" or "CANCEL" will cause the network configuration to
- Missing the configuration for the "NO_PROXY" domains, currently it
automatically adds 127.0.0.1 and localhost
- Video Card first boot configuration doesn't work. I tried to
install 9.1 on an old DELL 270, there was 9.0 installed and working, I
simply formatted and reinstalled. At first boot I start to get black
screen when the video was identified, then starting to get weird errors
and some random reboots. The videocard is an Intel. I haven't tried to
install the 9.0 on it again, but I will probably do it soon.
