Transcript

  • 1. Getting Started With PC-BSD Ken Moore PC-BSD/iXsystems Indiana LinuxFest July 27, 2013
  • 2. What is FreeBSD? The Good ● Unix-like OS descended from AT&T UNIX ● Legendary stability and security ● The ports system ● Unified development model ● Excellent documentation ● BSD License The Bad ● Generally difficult to install/configure ● Lacking some of the more PC-oriented device drivers
  • 3. BSD License
  • 4. GPLv3 License
  • 5. GPLv3 License
  • 6. GPLv3 License
  • 7. GPLv3 License
  • 8. GPLv3 License
  • 9. GPLv3 License
  • 10. GPLv3 License
  • 11. GPLv3 License
  • 12. GPLv3 License
  • 13. GPLv3 License
  • 14. GPLv3 License
  • 15. What is PC-BSD? FreeBSD Simplified! ● Pre-configured desktop/server installation ● Desktop-Environment agnostic ● Automatic ZFS setup ● Up-to-date package repositories PC-BSD Additions ● Graphical Installer ● Warden (jail management) ● PBI package format w/ EasyPBI ● System backup/restore functionality ● Many graphical system administration and device management utilities Important! PC-BSD is only available for 64-bit systems, and has standardized on the ZFS filesystem
  • 16. ZFS What is it? ● Enterprise-grade filesystem and logical volume manager ● Developed by Sun Microsystems and released in 2005 ● FreeBSD versions were available starting in 2007 Features ● Instant snapshots (local backup) – Send/Receive snapshots ● Allows boot environments ● Software RAID (z1, z2, z3) ● Self-healing with data corruption detection
  • 17. PC-BSD Installation
  • 18. Post-Installation Initial Setup
  • 19. Welcome To PC-BSD!
  • 20. PC-BSD Control Panel
  • 21. System Configuration - Basic ● Safe method of system configuration ● Any/All Desktop Environments without re-installing the OS ● Add additional drivers or development toolkits
  • 22. System Configuration - Advanced ● Full control over each individual package on your system ● Complete FreeBSD ports tree available as pre-built packages ● Updated package sets released twice a month ● Conflict resolution/management for any changes
  • 23. Other Utilities System Usage ● AppCafe Manage End-User applications ● Life-Preserver Automatic Data Backups ● Mount Tray Connecting External Devices System Configuration ● Network Manager Wired/Wireless connections ● Sound Configuration Set desired audio device
  • 24. The PBI Package System The Purpose ● Provide a safe, system package independent, method of installing/updating applications Additional Goals ● Ensure that applications do not require an internet connection for installation ● Minimize library duplication to preserve disk space The Implementation ● Written in pure shell (/bin/sh) ● Intelligently shared libraries between PBI's ● A single PBI contains all libraries, files, and data needed for an application to run. ● Completely independent of the local system packages and other PBI applications
  • 25. EasyPBI ● Graphical front-end to the PBI build system – Generate build instructions (a PBI “module”) – Run the actual build process ● Tight (but optional) integration with the FreeBSD ports collection ● No technical experience required ● Average time to create a module for a FreeBSD port: 5 minutes start to finish
  • 26. The Warden ● Jail management system ● Integrates many ZFS features (snapshots, etc..) ● 3 Types of jails: traditional FreeBSD, ports jail, Linux jail ● Export/Import jails between systems ● Command-line application, with an optional graphical interface
  • 27. Which Version? *-RELEASE Track ● Currently FreeBSD 9.1 ● Better for production systems ● Stays with the offical FreeBSD releases ● Updated packages sets on or about the 1st and 15th of each month *-STABLE Track ● Currently FreeBSD 9.2-Beta1 ● More development oriented ● Will have newer drivers and FreeBSD improvements sooner ● Updated package sets on or about the 5th and 20th of each month ● Update to the latest -STABLE version on the 1st of each month Remember! PC-BSD is for 64-bit systems ONLY! DVD, USB, and live USB images are available for download at: www.pcbsd.org
