Revision as of 15:20, 17 June 2014



The "System Selection" screen, shown in Figure 3.2a, allows you to install a desktop (PC-BSD®) or a server (TrueOS®) operating system. It also allows you to restore the operating system from a Life Preserver backup. The rest of this chapter concentrates on a desktop installation. Refer to Install a Server for instructions on how to install a command-line only server.

Figure 3.2a: 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.

In the example shown in Figure 3.2b, the user clicked “Customize” then expanded “Emulators” and right-clicked "VirtualBox" to access the “View Packages” option for this component.

Figure 3.2b: Browsing Additional System Components

The following components are available for installation.

NOTE: Fluxbox is always installed and available in the login menu of a PC-BSD® system.
  • Drivers: if you have an NVIDIA video card, make sure this box is checked so that the required drivers are installed.
  • i18n: if you expand the + you can select to install localization for the operating system and for the KDE desktop.

Check the box of a component that has a + next to it in order to check or uncheck its sub-components. All components that are checked will be installed.

Once you have made your selection(s), click the "Save" button to save your selections. The "PC-BSD Package 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 meets 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.
