I just installed PCBSD in dual boot config with XP on a friends PC. Both Ubuntu Gibbon and OpenSuSE kept nagging during the partitioning about ntfs mount errors, I eventually got fed up and tried PCBSD.

What do ya know, PCBSD just partitioned and installed its bootloader in the MBR, where do you want to go next.

Now if only ix systems will make up their minds and implement a package system that is in sync with the FreeBSD ports system and doesn´t perse interfere with the installed packages and libraries from the CD, we are pretty much on track I would think.

Anyway nice release, thank you:-)

You could try DesktopBSD.

You could try DesktopBSD.

Indeed, according to the DesktopBSD FAQ:

DesktopBSD uses all of the powerful and functional features that FreeBSD offers while PC-BSD rather introduces new, alternative systems instead. The best example of this is DesktopBSD’s Package Manager, which is in fact simply a comfortable front-end to the reliable and well-established FreeBSD “Ports” system. PC-BSD on the other hand utilises a new system of installing packages using a *.pbi package. The latter does not integrate with the system installed but wraps itself around the operating system and uses what it needs.

Thanks for the tip:-)
