Installing FreeBSD 5.3 on QUARKPRIME

From Earlham Cluster Department

Jump to: navigation, search

Initial installation

The install of FreeBSD 5.3 was fairly typical, with the exception that ACPI had to be disabled. This can be done by selecting "2" at the boot prompt, and permanently by adding hw.acpi.0.disable="1" to /boot/loader.conf.

After booting, the 54GB RAID-5 volume was partitioned like so:

/ UFS2 512MB
/clients UFS2 w/ SoftUp. 36GB
/var UFS2 w/ SoftUp. 3GB
/usr UFS2 w/ SoftUp. 10GB

After partitioning, base, compat4x, manpages, src, ports, and perl were selected for installation.

Configuration

The initial configuration consisted of adding the above-mentioned ACPI line to /boot/loader.conf, and then adding this /etc/rc.conf file:

usbd_enable="YES"

nisdomainname="cs.earlham.edu"
