I just noticed I have not updated this in a few weeks. Sorry about that.
I have my R810 running PCBSD 10.0.2, and I just patched and configured WiFi on it. I need to figure out how to submit a patch to see if I can get the Centrino supported in the main-line kernel so I do not have to compile a custom kernel just for that.
I almost have this working where I can switch to it full time. I need to deal with getting my killer apps installed and working. I had most (all?) of them working before, so I know I can do it again.
Currently, FireFox is not working for me for some reason, but Chromium is, so I will use that for now.
I have started a wiki to keep some notes for myself on this (what SA has not done that?), so I hope this process will be easier this time.
