DragonFly Release 2.4 Possible Upgrade Issues The kernel is unable to find the root and stops at the mountroot prompt. Due to the upgrade the drive may have changed names. Hit scroll-lock on the console, scroll up and locate the root drive. For BOOT+HAMMER try specifying: "hammer:xxxs1d", where xxx is the drive. For UFS try specifying: "ufs:xxxs1a", where xxx is the drive.

Work in progress! How to achive true full-disk encryption (FDE) Introduction DragonFlyBSD supports encryption and booting from encrypted root natively via CRYPTSETUP(8) and INITRD(7). However, to boot DragonFlyBSD in the first place, a plain-text boot partition is needed. Through a more elaborate boot process, it is possible to encrypt even the boot partition. Motivation Why would someone want to do that? Let's take this hypothetical scenario: At the airport your Laptop is confiscated with the intention...

Chapter 18 Serial Communications *Reorganized, and parts rewritten by Ivailo Mladenov. * Synopsis UNIX® has always had support for serial communications. In fact, the very first UNIX machines relied on serial lines for user input and output. Things have changed a lot from the days when the average terminal consisted of a 10-character-per-second serial printer and a keyboard. This chapter will cover some of the ways in which DragonFly uses serial communications. After reading this chapter, you will know:...

[!toc] Scenario I previously had dragonfly bsd installed in vmware workstation 6.5 on a windows xp host. I upgraded to windows 7 and decided on using virtualbox 4.04. I installed virtualbox 4.04, but I needed a way of moving my dragonfly bsd guest to virtualbox. Fortunately it is fairly simple to move vmware vmdk images to virtualbox. You just have to open virtualbox and in the storage flip you can search for disk images. Just select the main vmdk image you want to import. But here is where my problem...

Classical: DragonFly includes a ncurses-based disk installer, that will install DragonFly to a local disk on the machine where the image is booted. Steps: 1. Use the ISO image (for...

docs/howtos/howto reinstall hammer
* THIS GUIDE IS INCOMPLETE * Scenario I have got a 250GB SATA harddisk with DragonFlyBSD 2.3.2 32-bit installed on it. Actually I want to repartition my harddisk in order to install other OSes besides DragonFly, so for that I need to shrink the current installation size. Above all, I would like my system just like it is now. Although several methods could be used, as this is a HAMMER installation, I'm going to use HAMMERS's mirror-{read,write} capabilities. This assumes you cannot store the PFSs in another...
