Re: Default web browser failure

Well, I ran some tests on the HD, and it is just fine. A little more info: the problem with Firefox refusing to start is caused when a package I install also updates Firefox from the version 70 which comes with FuryBSD to version 72. For instance, when I run "pkg install hplip", one of the dependenc...

Logging in to the desktop as root

My recommendation is to try Fury on some non-critical computer and experiment with it. Although my needs are less "c...

Re: Boot failing.

Hello: My solution MAY not help you, but here is what I had to do: I wrote the ISO to a memstick with Rufus (I used the portable version). When I booted to FuryBSD on an older Acer laptop, it ran fine, much to my surprise. Due to the touch-pad not being "fixed", I had to first plug a USB mouse into ...
