This is the first post in our new forum. We welcome all of you to talk and discuss about NomadBSD.
Nice…DOH! Not first Let’s create an active community here…
Kudos for you all devs for creating this portable freeBSD system
keep up the good work guys, I´ll be waiting for the hd installation option
I’m a NUB when it comes to BSD & Nomad so I’m curious as to your waiting for HD instructions? I started yesterday from scratch and after 12 or more downloads and USB stick reloads I did manage to get a 1.3.1 running. But it was SLOW SLOW SLOW mostly due to USB stick performance. So I did see an HD install instruction in the manual and I am now running off a 1TB Seagate 7500 hard drive. Much faster!
Whoo Hoo I just decided to try NomadBSD and a forum appears! Perfect timing!
Love the operating system and I really like this forum’s format.
Keep up the good work!
I had tried 1.3.0 on a 14 y.o. Core2 duo laptop with generic graphics and it ran great. I tried getting into the command line and got a bit intimidated. I have just downloaded 1.3.1 and tried it on four different machines and found it happiest on a 10 y.o. iMac, in fact it is swift! Second is the Core 2 Old Reliable and an 6 y.o. i5 laptop (once I understood it needed a specific GOP setting). It is not happy yet on a new i7, with nVidia graphics, nor will it find the wifi on it.
The staff have been great. Kudos to them for what is a great way to enter the world of FreeBSD! Thank you! Now to see what comes next.
