[nycbug-talk] FreeBSD completely headless install?
Wed Jan 11 13:17:55 EST 2006
I sort of suspected that, but I can't find any info on the freesbie
site about what the default root password might be to ssh in with. I
can see how to make it work from a custom image (I think) but if I had
a waorking FreeBSD system to build FreeSBIE with, none of this would
be an issue.
Note to self: never pack the peripherals, even if it's only for a
couple of months.
