(Sorry for the inconvenience)

The "System Selection" screen, shown in Figure 3.3a, allows you to install a desktop (PC-BSD®) or a server (TrueOS®) operating system.

Figure 3.3a: Desktop Selection Screen

By default, PC-BSD® will be selected and the default window manager will depend upon the amount of RAM on the system. Systems containing more than 2GB of RAM will default to the KDE desktop and all other systems will default to the LXDE desktop. To change the default window manager or to browse for additional desktops and components to install, click the "Customize" button. If you highlight then right-click a component and select "View Packages", a pop-up menu will list the packages that are installed with that component.

After installation, you can return to this "Customize" screen in order to install or uninstall additional components by going to Control PanelSystem Manager System Packages.

In the example shown in Figure 3.3b, the user clicked “Customize”, then expanded Development, right-clicked Development-Science and clicked the “View Packages” button to view the packages to be installed with this component.

Figure 3.3b: Browsing Additional System Components

The following components are available for installation.

  • Desktops: includes the following supported desktops: GNOME2, KDE4, LXDE, and XFCE4. If you expand the + next to a desktop, you can select which components to install with that desktop. You can select as many desktops and components as you wish to install.
  • Development: software utilities suited for developers. These include the valgrind debugging tool, QT development tools, CMake, GNU make, Subversion, and git.
  • Hardware-Drivers: if you expand the + you can select additional drivers to install: HPLIP (for HP printers), Handheld (for syncing with WinCE devices), and NVIDIA (for older NVIDIA cards). If you have an older NVIDIA video card or a HP printer, check the applicable box to install the required drivers.
Template:Word-note Fluxbox is always installed and available in the login menu of a PC-BSD® system.

If you check the box of a component that has a + next to it, it will automatically select all of its sub-components. You can click the + to expand and uncheck any sub-components that you do not wish to install.

Once you have made your selection(s), click the "Save" button to save your selections. The "System Selection" box will list the components that you selected for installation. You can now click the "Next" button to proceed to the next screen.

NOTE: if you are installing a desktop, the installer will display a pop-up message if it cannot find a physical or virtual disk that does not meet the recommended minimum size of 50GB. It will let you continue an installation on a smaller disk, but you may run into disk space issues on smaller disks.
