Anybody know if #FreeBSD ever got softmodem support (like the linmodem project). This is entirely for giggles, i do not need the modem in my laptop, itd just be fun to have it working.
So #clonezilla gave a few errors but i think it worked. If not I have the product key if i need windows.
I verified all the HW I could before the install.
The Bluetooth sorted itself which is good because i didn't wanna take it all apart to access the daughter board.
Installed #mate and slim but they didn't work till i actually installed xorg. Apparently pkg doesn't consider it a prereq.
That was as far as I got last night. Slim doesn't yet dump me into mate because i haven't setup any of my configs yet.
Next steps are to get X up and going properly. Also to see how many of the fn keys and stuff i can get working.
Im reading through Absolute #FreeBSD as i do this so I'll be configuring stuff as I learn.
Im also interested in setting up an ubuntu jail so i have it as a fallback for software.
@Capheind I know you are not asking for advise, so feel free to ignore it, but this could save you time:
Remember to enable slim and dbus in rc.conf and to setup an executable $HOME/.xinitrc with contents equivalent to:
