Why FreeBSD 4 is on 4 cd and FreeBSD 5 is only on 2 cd? What is cut off?
The next releases of FreeBSD 4.x may also go to 2 CD.Quote:> Why FreeBSD 4 is on 4 cd and FreeBSD 5 is only on 2 cd? What is cut off?
The primary reason that 5.0 went to 2 CD is the number
of supported platforms went from 2 to 4+ [ia32, ia64,
alpha, sparc64, ppc (although ppc isn't tier 1, yet)].
If you have 4 CD for each cpu, then you'll have 20 ISO
images at 650 MB a piece. This is approximately 10 GB
of data, and many systems that mirror FreeBSD can't
afford that much space.
1. Problem reading CD on freebsd burnt on freebsd
At office, I have burnt an image of a file (name in 8.3 format, about
9MB size) in the standard
ISO 9660 format using the mkisofs and burncd utilities available on
When I tried to read it on my home PC, both in NT and freebsd (I have
on my home PC), I am facing 'bad address' or read error problems. What
could be the reasons ?
At office, I used a HP ReWritable CD drive. At home, I am using a
Samsung CDROM drive. I have
recorded the data at the lowest speed (-s 1), but stll it doesn't help.
