Error message grub (french double c thingy)
Hit any key (including enter/shift/etc.) brings new error: please insert proper device then hit any key to continue, or reboot
Format disk
Install freebsd with freebsd boot loader
same error as above
Format disk, install fedora 17 (test)
Fedora boots fine
Format disk
Install freebsd
same error as above but with no grub (french c thingy) proper device message still there
Install gnu/kfreebsd, fails to install grub
I found online some one with a similar problem in wheezy who said switching from default install to expert (closer to a AIF layout) helped him. Will try.

Don't think expert is all that complicated, do graphical expert and it's a breeze.

Even in ncurses its not that hard. Just a little longer. Anyway, that didn't work, but installing gnu/kfreebsd squeeze did. It boots! On a zfs root! (Atleast, I think. I've of it an odd bug where even though you say zfs it does ufs, I'm pretty sure it's zfs. I have to check. All thats left is to install a gui, get network working, and dist-upgrade.

Hey anyone with an SSD use a different command scheduler than the default CFQ? If so what one and how do you change it? I've heard that NOOP and Deadline are better than CFQ for SSDs but I wanted to check with you guys and also see how you changed the scheduler. Also, I heard that "discard"/TRIM in Linux is actually bad...is that because of an old version of it in older kernels (this was on the openSUSE website around 2011).

3.2 wasn't even released until 2012. I would want more recent info before doing anything like disabling trim

I will see if there is any that I can find. Still want to know how to change from CFQ to either NOOP or deadline.


PS: How do I check alignments? redface.gif Supposedly all distros from this year forward are 4k compatible aligned by default but I just want to check. Also, is it really my SATA2 ports that make it seem like outside of boot up...not much is different with an SSD vs HDD? Maybe I just expected much faster.

nope, linux just chaches ram so well the differance is minimized (ie your ssd isn't slow, linux just makes alot runs from ram so your drive doesn't matter as much)

as for me, freebsd 8 on squeeze doesn't have my network drivers for my nic or my onboard. using the freebsd 9 wheezy beta, rather then the weekly genorated images it's gets farther but still fails, I think after doing some reading because freebsd doesn't recognze part of the disk or something (ioctl, I think- I get errors either way) . freebsd installs fine but the bootloader won't work (likley same problem) headscratch.gif funny because I've used it before. so, I plan to use the gnu/linux wheezy beta images. for a triple boot. heres the plan:

sda1: 100mbs, fat32. /boot/efi (linux)
sda2: 500mbs, ext4. /boot (linux)
sda3: 9gb, linux-swap. (linux&freebsd)
sda4: 10gb, btrfs. (archlinux)
sda5: 10gb, ext4. (debianwheezylinux)
sda6: 12gb, ufs2. (freebsd)
sda7: 190gb, ext2(only fs that works out of the box on freebsd and linux). (linux&freebsd)

ok, so I found the issue- using gpt. for some reason my motherboard is demanding a bios boot partition on gpt, even though I never had to before (must be some setting) it was not an option on freebsd/kfreebsd so it's going to have to be linux. I tried installing arch but grub still fails (unrelated problem)so, Debian GNU/Linux it is. wheezy beta4. everything works! left two unformatted partitions for arch and somthing latter on. disk scheme:

sda1 ~ BiosBoot/FAT32 ~ 100MB

sda2 ~ Ext4 ~ 500MB ~ /boot

sda3 ~ Linux-Swap ~ 9GB

sda4 ~ BTrFS ~ 15GB ~ /

sda5 ~ unformatted ~ 10GB

sda6 ~ unformatted ~ 10GB

sda7 ~ Ext4 ~ 190GB(aprox.) ~ /home

so yeah. interested in playing around with things like snapshots and such, which I didn't get around to doing last time on BTrFS with arch.

It's pretty easy to check whether your root is ZFS or UFS

it depends on the game. the first thing I would do is check WineHQ search for your game, yours should have rated it saying how well it works, as well as any patches/ modifcations that may need to be used. also, there is a program called playonlinux, a wine frount end, I havn't used it but supposively it takes some of the work configuring games to work out.
