Getting a quick start

For those of you with new installations of DragonFly, David Rhodus noted that the package builds on are up-to-date, and these commands may come in handy:

pkg_add -r XFree86
pkg_add -r
pkg_add -r

Installer and partition problem

Quoted from the download page:

IMPORTANT ERRATA ADDENDUM: Using the installer on a multi-slice disk will improperly resize the target slice when it is not the last slice, to be the same size as the last slice, leading to a corrupt disk! We will have an update to fix this problem in the next 24 hours!

A serving trick

If you’re using a DragonFly or a FreeBSD computer to mirror the release data, don’t forget to turn on net.inet.tcp.inflight_enable=1, as that will improve performance.
