First, I would like to thank all the users of this NG that help me with
my many installation problems. Today my FreeBSD system is now able to
connect to the internet (via dial-up PPP), I have X Windows configured
and Netscape Communicator installed and running properly.
I have a few questions that came up tonight as I was messing around with
my system. First, I am using the ICE window manager and I would like to
change the background from the default pattern, how can I accomplish
this? I like the ICEMW shell the best out of the two three that I tried
(twm, fvwm2 and fvwm95). Anyone have any other suggestions for a clean
My second question is a little more in depth. Currently to connect to
my ISP I am using ppp and the following steps:
set speed 115200
Manually typing my login information in
I get kicked out of term mode and then type add default HISADDR
I just kinda stumbled into this process and it is working perfectly for
me; however, being that I still know very little about FreeBSD or Unix
for that matter, is there a better way to accomplish this??
My last question pertains to my system memory and how much is shown as I
am booting into FreeBSD. I have 192MB of memory, buy on boot up FreeBSD
is only seeing 64MB, is there something I need to set so that it sees
the other 128mb?
Again, I really appreciate all of the help this NG has given me. Sure
beats the hell out of any of the Windows based NGs.
