How cool is this?
I'm going to attempt a compile and install of the nvidia drivers and compiz / emerald. Then I am going to install the MS core fonts and see if I can get my mouse wheel working.
Because, you know, sometimes Linux just isn't geeky enough!
It's been a fun rainy afternoon so far
Well, that didn't go well. I left myself with a box that wouldn't boot and I don't know what I did wrong! Ah well, I still have my Linux box
I'm going to start again and see if I can do it right this time
Well, that didn't go well.

You are gonna be Linux and BSD proficient (green with envy)
Good luck with it elija
And Yeah. That is cool.I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.
Accepting Death is the only way to stay alive.
Well, that's the base installed, ports updated and xorg compiled and configured. Gnome 2.30 is compiling and I am having a drink or two so that's all the configuration for today

It's been a really long time since I last installed any of the BSDs, but to be honest I didn't care much for them at the time. Having said that, I never gave them a fair trial either, so I should install them again some time soon and stick with them for a while to see how they measure up. Hope you'll have lots of fun with FreeBSD.oz
I knew Gnome would take a long time to compile but if I had known that meant 14 hours I might just have installed the binaries
Tomorrow is nvidia drivers, compiz, emerald, firefox and open office. Wonder how long that lot will take
I'm having a whale of a time
To be perfect you need to compile your system with your make.conf. I'm running Gentoo because it's source-based and I'm running FreeBSD because it is source-based. Although in case of FreeBSD they don't tell you this in the Handbook.
FreeBSD compiled for your CPU, how cool is that!
