PC-BSD® Life Cycle

From PC-BSD Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

On this page we try to describe a life cycle of an average PC-BSD® from boot to shutdown, find a weak places, and think about some improvements.

I will use "Use Case" in a freeform.

  1. User starts pc
  2. OS goes by detect devices stage
    1. If "disk checking" not needed, skip it.
    2. If "Disk checking" needed, do it.
  3. Starting X
    1. Need setup X - start script
    2. Not need setup X - start pdm
    3. Not need setup X - start pdm, pdm failed - oops! PC-BSD® currently not know what to do ;)
  4. Displaying login screen
  5. Logging in (setting sound levels)
  6. Start Update checker, some GUI services (?)
  7. Running various programs, scripts, etc
  8. Switching user (actually we should view login screen again)
  9. Logging in (setting sound levels again)
  10. Start Update checker, some GUI services (again)
  11. Shut down pc
