I’m thinking of putting up a FreeBSD Journal here. I’m having a hard time remembering all the different things I’ve done to get my machine customized. It would help if I kept track of all the things I did. Plus, it will be a good resource…
FreeBSD Error Message
I thought this was a cute error message: Unable to go to your saved /etc directory in ?! Argh! Something went seriously wrong! It’s quite possible that your former /etc is toast. I hope you didn’t have any important customizations you wanted to keep in there.. 🙁
Fixed Sharity Light Problem
Fixed the problem. I had (wrongly) set the hostname for my XP box as 10.0.0.1. D’OH! It should have been 10.0.0.2. Works perfectly now!
FreeBSD machine configured
My FreeBSD machine is configured to the Cisco 678… I just need to figure out how to configure sharity light again… Hmm… Oh yeah, I took out the 20Gb harddrive from the XP box and put it into the FreeBSD box. FreeBSD recognizes it. No surprise.
Got my Cisco 678 modem today. It’s set up and seems to be running fine. Ran into a few quirks (why does this always happen to me?) but ironed it all out. Need to configure my FreeBSD machine now.
New DSL modem, a possiblity of Employment and not going to California
Qwest is sending me a Cisco 678. The 675 doesn’t work with our current line. Also, using the Intel Pro/DSL 3200 USB modem is a pain. It royally sucks. Plus, my FreeBSD machine doesn’t recognize it. If I get the 678, I can just hook it up to the uplink port of the hub and…
How hard can installing a new OS get? Pretty damn hard. It took three hard disks and two other OS’es to get it right. Huh what? Yeah you heard me… I wanted switch from Windows XP Home to Windows XP Professional. So I pull out a pre-activated copy (muhaha) that my buddy gave me a…
I learnt some new stuff. CvsUP is pretty neat. I learnt the hard way that when you do a make buildworld you have rebuild the kernel the non-traditional way. My kernel wasn’t compiling and for a moment I thought I would have to go through all that madness with write failure on transfers again. See,…
It works!! It works!! The machine wasn’t able to resolve IP addresses. So I added the IP of the nameserver (that I got from my WinXP box my using nslookup) to /etc/resolv.conf and now it works. =D I’m sooo happy!!
vi resolv.conf…. nameserver 220.127.116.11… reboot… cross my fingers… hope this works…
