Part II. Common Tasks

Now that the basics have been covered, this part of the book discusses some frequently used features of FreeBSD. These chapters:

  • Introduce popular and useful desktop applications: browsers, productivity tools, document viewers, and more.

  • Introduce a number of multimedia tools available for FreeBSD.

  • Explain the process of building a customized FreeBSD kernel to enable extra functionality.

  • Describe the print system in detail, both for desktop and network-connected printer setups.

  • Show how to run Linux applications on the FreeBSD system.

Some of these chapters recommend prior reading, and this is noted in the synopsis at the beginning of each chapter.
