FreeBSD or PCBSD neither works. Page 3

The FreeBSD Foundation is pleased to announce that Konstantin Belousov has been awarded a grant to implement support of GEM, KMS, and DRI for Intel Drivers.
From the PC-BSD 9.0 Handbook:
"The FreeBSD Foundation and iXsystems are funding a project to add native DRI, GEM, and KMS support to the FreeBSD kernel for version 9.1. In the mean time, video drivers that require these kernel hooks currently use the X.org driver with those features disabled. Usually this means that the card works but may be missing features such as 3D acceleration.
It has been reported that Centrino based-laptops will fail to boot the installation DVD in both live and install mode. If your laptop has a built-in Intel chipset and will not boot the installation media, select "Run X in VESA mode" from the installer's boot menu. Once the installation is complete, you will need to select the default vesa driver from the display settings menu as selecting an Intel driver will freez
FreeBSD or PCBSD neither works.

I have tried both FreeBSD and PC-BSD, but neither seems to work.
Linux Mint 14 64-bit runs fine as live DVD, so I don't think there are HW problems.
My Mobo is: GA-B75M-D3H (rev. 1.1)
and the processor: i3 ivy bridge
PC-BSD 9.1 didn't even start:
The start-up stopped, when it didn't find /bin/sh and wanted a shell. the only shell it accepted was csh, but any command in csh(1) crashed with a segmentation fault. Even ls(1). Writing /bin/<tab> let me see what was there in /bin, and all the shells seemed to be there.
The FreeBSD 9.1 installed, but X didn't.
Since 9.1 has no packages, I used 9-stable/Latest.
It's just that the Intel HD-graphics weren't there to be installed.
Can someone give me step-by-step instructions what to do to get the X working with FreeBSD? Given my experiences (above), I don't think PC-BSD is an option.
Just "recompiling" is not enough, because I don't know about configurations nor the paths (in which directory to give the commands in).
FreeBSD or Ubuntu Linux for Compaq Laptop

I recently got into the process of testing and installing some desktop linuxes for some priests who were just about tired of paying for a new version of antivirus ever so often and maintaining their antivirus software. I suggested linux for them as an alternative. I would have suggested freebsd, but I know that it would take some time before they could actually get used to console every time they needed to do something that required root privileges.
In all my testing I came across the ubuntu linux distro and I was pretty impressed by the way it was put together. I was even more impressed by its power management when I ran its live cd on my laptop. I currently run FreeBSD 6.0 on my laptop and have had no problems performance wise with it. However, The power management is an issue of concern for me - something I have noticed that ubuntu manages easily.
When FreeBSD runs, my fan is always running at some level.It is always humming away. However with ubuntu installed the fan eventual

What are the major differences between the different forms and falvors of BSD.

Is there a theme or environment that works for an HTPC?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 27, 2013
Been using Ubuntu as my HTPC for a while now, just got a HTPC remote and am finding the standard Ubuntu theme far too small to be used from the couch.
I tried using XMBC but the lack of proper web browser integration is a deal breaker and trying to get a browser to work via the advanced launcher makes it exit from full screen and sometimes breaks it all together.
I was wondering if there was a theme or desktop environment for Ubuntu that has large icons, text and buttons which would be ideal for navigating from a distance. I've tried searching far and wide but have come up with nothing apart from the gnome tweak tool but thats not really a solution.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
Which version of android and/or web browser works best with flash
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 2, 2011
I am using Android 2.1 froyo. I also installed adobe flash player 10.2 from the Android Market place.
The default web browser on the tablet seems to crash when I it encounters flash that is multimedia like audio and video.
It's funny how flash works great with linux distributions and not well in android.
Does anyone know which version of android and/or web browser works best with flash so the crashes are minimal.
I appreciate feedback. Thanks

[SOLVED] Would it be smarter to install the 32bit version or the 64bit version? Page 2
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 7, 2014
It's funny how much debate the 64 vs 32 questions always seem to bring but end up personal choice in the long run, unless you become a soft\hardware computer scientist? I'd still point out GRUB can dual boot both and some new code will not run...
however on on some systems (mostly older) with some tests (according to some people and\or software:)
and so on debatable unless you buy the right hardware but that's another debate.
