Explanation

Although every effort is made to create accurate instructions, sometimes the need for adjustment comes after a version of the handbook has been published. It is hoped that those changes are few and occur seldom. Here is where errors, omissions, and other changes or improvements will be recorded, organized by title and version.

PC-BSD® Handbook

The handbook portion of the wiki now primarily focuses on two versions, the most recent release and the upcoming (work-in-progress).

Which would you like?

Release (10.0)

2.6 Obtaining PC-BSD


2.6.1 Selecting Which File to Download


There are two versions available for each type of file: one for 32-bit (i386) systems and one for 64-bit (amd64) systems. It is important that you download a file that matches your computer's processor type (32- or 64-bit).

It is important that you download a file that matches your computer's processor type (32- or 64-bit). Each media type includes a file, pcbsd-media which identifies the release version.

4.5 Dual Booting


4.5.3.1 Adding PC-BSD to Legacy GRUB


Root: The root of the partition containing PC-BSD. In the above example, PC-BSD is installed on the first hard disk (hd0) and on the first partition (,1). Start counting your hard disk from zero (e.g. disk 0 for the first hard disk, disk 1 for the second hard disk) and your partition from one (e.g. 1 for the first partition on that disk, 2 for the second partition, etc.)

4.5.3.2 Adding PC-BSD to GRUB Version 2


If you are trying to dual-boot with GRUB2 under Fedora 16, run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg as the superuser.


If you are trying to dual-boot with GRUB2 under Fedora 16 or Gentoo, run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg as the superuser (Please note that if using Sabayon, you need to use grub-mkconfig instead of grub2-mkconfig).

To enable Chinese input, it may be necessary to create and/or edit the .xinitrc file in your home directory to add two lines:
1. export XMODIFIERS='@im=ibus'
2. GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus
