PC-BSD May 2, 2009

Posted by Trezker in computer.

PC-BSD looks and works nicely.
It asks for root passwords often, so I guess it’s a secure system. I heard that’s what it’s famous for.

A lot of nice applications where installed by default, like remote desktop, personal organizer, address manager, media player, etc. The update manager works nicely, though it was split in two sections. System and PBI (programs), so you need to process them separately. The add/remove applications program seems nice. They have a good website where you can browse available applications.

As for hardware, it set up the display properly, something that Linux mint failed to do. It was nice to have a better resolution and no black border.

The D-Link wireless card didn’t work. BSD detected it but seems to have chosen the wrong driver or something. I failed to find an easy way to fix this problem. My Linksys USB wireless dongle worked though, that’s what I have on my main desktop. So at least I know BSD is capable of working some type of wireless.
