just finished installation

I think this is a great idea to have a arch like bsd.
Thank you all guys !!

I've just finished the installation. It's incredibly simple and fast.
But suddenly, I found out I have no idea about a BSD system.
Somehow I managed to start sshd and configure network.
The problem is that it seems very different from other BSDs.
So, I can not google and find out what to do next.
Instructions from wiki page of FreeBSD simply won't work here.
I even don't know how to have sshd autostarted.
How embarrssing !
Hope there is a entry in wiki about what to do next after installation.

Re: just finished installation

`rc-update add sshd default`

The difference here is that ArchBSD uses OpenRC instead of BSD's init.
However the base system is a FreeBSD system otherwise (kernel+world).
Installing packages works just as in ArchLinux, though it's a testing iso so some manual configuration fixes here and there may be required, I don't know for sure.

Re: just finished installation

Thanks !! I love this !!
I just migrate from systemd to openrc on my arch linux box recently.
I personally dislike systemd and openrc is just awesome !!

Re: just finished installation

It's still early stages and needs a lot of issues fixed and some more scripts wrote for openrc, but it's getting there slowly.

It's be a big help if you post issues you have to have them fixed quicker.

Re: just finished installation

I'm still having some probs with my (pure) zfsboot, gpt,  ...,  on my new Asus K75DE notebook, and as such for now, no worries, I'm a bit "rusty" with zfs on bsd obviously,
and anyway, a FreeBSD/Arch installation is not the easiest ride by a long shot, no matter what. -LoL.
I'll just stick to a UFS boot config when I get around to it for now.
And of course, unfortunately I'm also right in the middle of my own home reno project, and so no time to test for a little while.

But I'm glad the iso is finally out, CONGRATS!, and when I get around to it, I will definitely post my probs with everything archbsd-related.

...so yes please, POST any and ALL of your ISSUES ppl,
'cause that's how we will get ArchBSD eventually fixed up, and more fixed up, and more ....
smile

EDIT: actually, I got a lot farther along, once I figured out a tip from here>: http://ostanin.org/blog/2011/12/19/root … freebsd-9/
...for my example-(attempting a pure-zfs install), ...;

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ada0 bs=512 count=1

  ...

No matter what though, I sincerely think the (pacstrap) / "Netinstall" method is defintely the BEST way to roll this properly, in the long run. ?
Cheers.
