Language Selection Screen/9.2
The next screen, seen in Figure 3.1.1a: indicates that the installer successfully loaded and is ready to present you with its options:
Figure 3.1.1a: Welcome and Language Selection Screen
The installer is divided into three logical areas:
- The left panel which lists the screens the installer will step through. The current step is highlighted in red text.
- The main area in the centre where the installer expects user input.
- The bottom navigation bar where you can go forward, backward or Abort the installation.
This screen allows you to select your language. PC-BSD's menus have been translated to several different languages and you can see the status of your native language at the PC-BSD Translation Site. If your language does not show 100% translation at this website, it means that not all of the menus have been translated yet and that the untranslated menus will instead display in English. You are welcome to join the PC-BSD Translators Mailing List if you would like to assist in translating menus to your native language.
By default, PC-BSD menus will display in English, unless you select another language in the drop down menu in this screen.
Unless you specify otherwise, PC-BSD will create a hostname for your computer. If you prefer to set the hostname yourself, check the "Custom hostname" box and input the name you wish to use. The hostname can not contain any spaces.
When you are finished, click Next to go to the next installation screen.
