Hello world :)
well, here's my situation. i am a newbie in freebsd to start off with.
I booted up the FreeBSD4.4 Mini-ISO straight from cd, it totally skips the
kernel configuation mode. goes straight into probing and freezes in the
sysinstall. and if i tried to press another key when it prompts "press enter
to continue..(?)" and used the command "boot -c" (a person told me to tried
that.. i believe in #freebsdhelp) it will scrolls all of this random text
continuosly (i think its suppose to be the kernel configuation menu... but
the screen is full of scrolling text)
here is the weridest thing... i replaced the default keyboard i normally use
(a generic acer ps/2 keyboard... with those annoyoing wakeup/sleep/power
buttons.. & the windows buttons ) with this anicent ps/2 keyboard i dug up
(no wakeup, sleep, power buttons) and then the installtion works?!?!?!
also.. after i installed FreeBSD with the old keyboard.. i replaced it with
the new one.. and the bootup freezes?!
um. sumone explain why does this happen and how to fix this problem? or is
it just my bad luck? *shrugs*
P.S for those ppl that mite figure to say "use the old keyboard.." most of
the keys are mega *ed (gotta press REALLY hard to register one letter)
and i dunno if i should get a new keyboard just in case this mite happen!
oh yeh! .. i forgot.. machine spegs
