BSD Challenge

#189

Decided to take a short-cut but Trident wasn’t doing it for me, GhostBSD now installed. Plan is to configure Compiz-Fusion to get rid of screen tearing and then do something to auto-mount USB drives.

I’m contemplating making up a custom spin of GhostBSD using Cinnamon, and then taking the challenge.

It’s in their build scripts, but they haven’t released a version based on it yet.

I was initially afraid that I’d be stuck on Linux because of my Trezor, but it looks like GhostBSD has better support than Linux at this point. I’m cautiously optimistic.

Also gotta bake in amdgpu support. Vesa’s not going to cut it.

Might be a weekend project.

I LOVE YOUR FEROCIOUS DETERMINATION. It pushes me forward.

Either fierce determination, or the classic engineering problem of forgetting to double your estimates.

BSD Screen weirds me the hell out!

GhostBSD in VM… I have to re-run dhcpcd eveytime I grab a shell. It’s like it disconnects when the screensaver kicks in.

Great security feature, really annoying as a user.

Screen has nice bottom bars, like Byobu, but doesn’t persist across those screensaver-like logouts.

sudo trueos-update upgrade

keeps failing…

I see BSDNow ep301 titled GPU Passthrough… Anyone tried? any good for games?
If it was, I would definitely give it a go…

If you want to game on Linux. I think it was just regular pci passthrough to a Linux VM and manual xorg configuration to fire up the GPU.
