comment Important data lost in Gnote
I did some research and it seems a flag in the kernel limits my access to programs' memories, for example. Thus, I can't recover the note frome Gnote! Can I change the flag without rebooting? If I reboot, will the note be definitely erased or will it still be in /dev/mem, if it is in the first place?

comment Important data lost in Gnote
It happened again, on a different note, which I opened it to copy to a safe place... Anyway, hoping to recover this other very important data, I did cat /dev/mem > mem, mem being a file which now holds 1028kB of data. Isn't it strange that the file is so small, since /dev/mem should be tens of times bigger? If it is, how can I save /dev/mem entirely? Then, do I use grep the same way I do with files that are not binaries, to find my "sentence chunks". In fact, I hope the note which Gnote destroyed is still in /dev/mem, but I'm not sure if /dev/mem contains things such as loaded files.

Is there a way to discard the non-typed characters from /dev/mem? Using grep or something like that?

comment Important data lost in Gnote
Thank you, but the file is just too long. There is at least a week of activity recorded on it and it has mainly black characters I don't understand and very little typed characters. Anyway, what was on the note was not just typed, but written on various dates.

I did search. No clue for recovering since the file has not been deleted but edited (against my will) and the error message and other queries such as "gnote lost data" or "gnote bug" don't give any link. On my own, I'll just delete gnote, use gedit, do lots of backups, and rewrite the file by memory, even if it was very long...

comment Network configuration problems in FreeBSD
Sorry for the late comment; I lacked time and had forgotten the root password... I checked the sysinstall DHCP configuration screen and the first field, "Host", and the one under it, "IP Address", are both automatically filled with "NETGEAR_EXT" and the IP address. The others are empty. Also, during boot, I see some messages about inet, IP addresses, and "NETGEAR_EXT". I also see "NETGEAR_EXT#" as root. However, ping fails and sysinstall's installation of packages using FTP fails too. Is the key in your answer the password for the router? There isn't any on mine. What should I do?

It's okay. BSD uses ndis and Linux uses ndiswrapper to load Windows' drivers.

What was the downvote for? Did I miss something really big in the process :p?

For my network card? Well, there's only a Windows driver which has been converted successfully in both Linux and BSD... So I thing the problem lies in the configuration: gateway and other stuff I don't know where to find!

Yes. I think something is missing in rc.conf but I don't know what to put in it. I think it's something like ifconfig_ndis0="inet someipaddress", but where to find this IP address? And will it be enough?
