I am trying to install FreeBSD 12.1 on my ThinkPad. I burned an image to
USB from, install went through ok but ran into "startx" issues
(Cannot run in framebuffer mod...). Tried a few suggestions on google but
nothing worked;(

I am trying to see if TrueOS is something I could use to install. But
unable to find USB .img file for the latest TrueOS 18.X....I do see .iso
but need .img for installation via USB on laptop.

I am new to FreeBSD world, and would really like to get "a" desktop version
running on my laptop (later need to download latest sources, build and play
with latest versions).

Any pointers/suggestions highly appreciated!

Thanks a lot!
