[PC-BSD Testing] Alpha2 for testing

I know this program...

is the old "norton commander" from DOS or PC-DOC (the IBM version.. a lot better than MS-DOS) dear old days...

didn't know that they were still making this one.

there are free versions out there, WINSCP can do the same things that this program does, just set the right column to be local (I think.. never done it before).

If necessary I can find the free versions that I was used to used in win95 and see if they evolve into *nix..

good memories when I was playing with my 80486dx2 60Mhz with the turbo on :-) and a good load of 4Mb ram and 20Mb HDD

probably there are free versions already ready for BSD... I'll dig

    Hey all, thanks for the reports from Alpha 1! Lots of things have been
fixed since then, and Xorg 7.4 is acting a bit more normal now, so I've
gone ahead and cut a release of Alpha2 for everybody to play with.

Some of the highlights:

* Fixed nvidia driver support
* Included new kde printer application
* Fixes slew of Xorg-related bugs and problems from update to 7.4
* Patches which improve KDE's plasma stability
* Numerous other small bugfixes :)


As usual, please report bugs to this list, especially any regressions
you've found from 7.0.x.


      Kris, there's something with /boot/loader has changed.
I couldn't make boot USB, as usual. Seems this 1byte difference between 
alpha2 and alpha1 loaders breaks something.
I changed it with /boot/loader from alpha1 and could succesfully boot 
and install from FAT32 flash. "Howto" coming soon ;)
About system itself = new theme is good, a little speedup (comparing to 
alpha1) is present.

Let me know how to solve this, i've not personally changed anything 
related to the boot process, aside from updating to the latest FreeBSD 
7.1-Stable. Did something change in FBSD as far as you know?

  We lack of good, strong, solid filemanager, like TotalCommander. Maybe 
we could get a sane PBI ? :) Just thoughts, yet.
I'm not seeing TotalCommander in the ports tree? If there's one you like 
in ports, let me know and I can get a PBI made up of it. I'm doing a 
couple a week right now, in my spare time while working on 7.1 :P
  It's because it's windows app :)
  But it should be easy built, like WinFirefox;
  TK itself could be obtained from http://www.ghisler.com/
  If this not very difficult, can we have it? :)
