Go FreeBSD or go home. Someone should consolidate my posts into one thing, I can't edit posts.

Can't tell if serious.

It was more of an acknowledgement... "Okay, if you say so" since I wasn't at all familiar. :biggrin:

Yeah as much AS I hate FreeBSD I can't agree or disagree to myself of liking it for it's versatile usability from a networking approach or a general consumer approach.

What do you hate about it?

1. Obviously Berkeley University and the other arse hats that were involved in the development of Unix have no idea what usability is, I mean imagine using Mac OS X or MS Windows completely relied and based on commands, not a single GUI application to be seen. This includes the web browser.

 

2. It's a make or break type of OS, if you enter a command especially with port installations and something breaks, be sure to have a snapshot of the virtual machine or backup of the OS to revert to an earlier state, hence either commands make the particular functions work or break the whole thing together.

 

3. No add/remove program to be seen such as simple uninstallers and delete function in Mac OS X and Windows should a program installation stuff up. If you install a port with a given option to choose extra settings, make config extension sometimes doesn't even work, if you install a port that installs into the same directory as another port particularly a deprecated program or plugin, deinstalling it doesn't work and it will tell you to go erase those installation files one by one, this leads to another problem as you need to change directories for each files location that you want to modify. 

 

4. Obviously not user friendly, which is why most companies use the GUI version of Red Hat linux.

And women too.

 

Unfortunately FreeBSD ain't no Disney stuff.

I got as far as "BSD and Linux devs get on so badly neither is willing to write drivers for the other's filesystems" and stopped - all my data is on ext4, there is no way to read it let alone save anything under BSD (or at least this was the case a couple of months back).  They have fuse-ntfs to read/write to NTFS though, so if you're coming from Windows this might not be a deal breaker.

 

DefQon outlines plenty of things that it doesn't do well too - really doesn't sound a good choice for a newbie.  Interesting "sales pitch" though, I have to respect the honesty!

 

Anyway I prefer the cold, like this guy :bigsmile_face:

Yeah Linux ftw, but I like using all OS's, all have there weakness and advantages. 

post #296 of 387

Oh no.

A catalyst update broke my system. Can only login in Failsafe mode. :mad:

I feel the same way. This spring I'm also going to make an Ubuntu phone with my aging Motorola RAZR HD. Should be fun. :-)

Can't you just revert to the old one, whether through package management or manually?

I'd done a full system upgrade, so dependencies can be an issue. If I try to downgrade catalyst, I'll have to downgrade Xorg, and the Linux kernel as well.

 

So its a bit of a long process, I'll do it if there's no other option left, but I've posted on the Archlinux forum, maybe there's some solution.

 

Its working somewhat alright in Failsafe, just that there are no fancy window effects in KDE.

UPDATE:

Great Success!

 

I saw that I had enabled the wrong repository by mistake. :eek:

It had installed a beta driver, which obviously wasn't ready yet. A change in the repo name, a few package downgrades and finally the problem is solved.
