The usb device is da5 however it does not show in df. I has something to do with hardware search/ finder. Example I just tested manjaro install and solus install bothe find wired connection 1 and both have internet. During install it says no internet but on reboot it finds wired connection 1. On both test installs it finds the usb as well. My learning curve with freebsd is growing. However this hardware issue is annoying.

It won't show up in df output until you mount the USB drive. Please try the following command:

mount -t msdosfs /dev/da5 /mnt

If you still don't see the USB drive in your df output, please post the output of the following command:

ls /dev/da*

... taking care to include the asterisk ("*") character at the end. Thanks.

Nice. Now copy your files from the /mnt directory to the /tmp directory and take it from there as discussed earlier in this thread.

I have added pkg and realtek. I have run ifconfig and now have an active re0 active - so how do I set this for internet. Also the realtek-re-kmod-v196.04_3.txz not .4_3.txz is the correct file name

I am not accustomed to quitting.
That's what I like to hear.


How do I copy the files to /tmp? I know this is basic but I need help to do this. If I do ls /dev/da* it shows as /dev/da0. So what next? cp /dev/da0/pkg-1.16.3.txz /tmp ? Is this correct?
I use x11-fm/xfe as my File Manager, always have it ipen with the desktop and leave that instance of it open till I exit the desktop.

If I need to work with files as root I issue the su in a terminal to become root in that terminal. Then summon # xfe from that terminal. Now the File Manager will appear with a Warning that you are running as root.

Now you have your usr File Manager open and the root File Manager you just called. Drag and Drop the file from your root FM to the correct Directory of the usr FM. Easy as that.

That is only telling you how to copy a file. Not how to incorporate it into the kernel.

You have to make a /media/da0s1 directory before you can mount it. # mkdir -p /media/da0s1
Then you can use one of these commands:

Code:
# mount -v -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media/da0s1

# umount -v -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media/da0s1

# mount -v -t msdosfs -F32 -o large /dev/da0s1 /media/da0s1

# umount -v -t msdosfs -F32 /dev/da0s1 /media/da0s1

Run the command and let us see it.

If you lost Internet conectivity after a reboot chances are you have the worng network interface designation in /etc/rc.conf and that will tell us.

Hello
Well I worked it out. When I was checking /boot/loader.conf I found I had two " " Must have accidentally typed it twice. Another lesson learnt. Its all up and running again with updates and basic pkg tests.

Please post text instead of an image, this one is hard to read (and wastes bandwidth).

pkg:repository meta has wrong version or wrong format
pkg: Repository FreeBSD load error: meta cannot be loaded No such file or directory
Fetching meta.conf: 100% 842 B 0.8kb/s 00.01
pkg: cannot parse repository meta: error while parsing <unknown>: line;3, column: 0 -'key must begin with a letter', character: '<'
Repository FreeBSD has no meta file, using default settings

So the net config can see the controller DNS is set correctly.

Dude, you have two threads going on this one topic. Please, just follow the advice of one, and this one seems the most pertinent to your current situation: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/install-error-on-new-install.81554/post-525424

Re: photos: If you have console access, then enable ssh, and use a terminal emulator from another system. Then you can capture the output and post it in textual format. It's much easier to read and the preferred way unless you have no other.

Why two IPs? On the one interface? Are you using aliases?
