Re: Kfreebsd Install of 8-28 mini.iso SUCCESS :) - with some outstanding issues
FIX: Wanted to report that after I installed package " xdm ", KFBSD now boots to X (quick fix) :)
BUG: Delete key does not work on the TTY (non-X) consoles :( Workaround is to use Ctrl-D, but this should be fixed for console-heavy users. (It works on PCBSD.)
BUG: the ZFS-related commands are not useful with pipe "|" when displaying their Help pages -- i.e. ' zpool |less ' will not work as expected, and neither will ' zfs |grep allow '. However, if the command is returning a result, i.e. ' zpool status |grep tank ' -- this works OK. ' zfs get all |grep atime ' works OK.
