(Sorry for the inconvenience)

This screen, seen in Figure 3.8a, allows you to select which applications can be installed with the operating system.

Figure 3.8a: Applications Screen is Used to Select which Optional Software is Installed with PC-BSD


Highlight the software you would like to install in the "Available Components" box and click the blue > button to add them to the "Selected Components" box. If you change your mind, highlight the item in the "Selected Components" box and click the blue < button. Whatever shows up in the "Selected Components" box when you click the Next button, will be installed for you.

The following components are available:

  • Mozilla's popular web browser - (firefox)
  • Full featured office suite - (openoffice)
  • FreeBSD ports collection - (ports)
  • FreeBSD system source - (src)
  • Jail management and administration - (Warden)
  • Mozilla's popular E-mail client - (thunderbird)
  • Multimedia player with streaming capabilities - (vlc)

Note: You can still install additional software after PC-BSD is installed Using AppCafe™. The components in this screen are limited to those that came with the installation media. The advantage to installing here is that they can be installed quickly and don't require a connection to the Internet.
