How to Install FreeBSD (with Gui!)

Hello, Lillian here! Wanna learn how to install FreeBSD, with a nice GUI, Firefox, a nice terminal experience, and other goodies? I had some spare time so I made an instructional video for exactly that!

This goes over:

  1. Installing FreeBSD
  2. Setting up your GUI (windowmaker, xorg, rox-filer)
  3. Updates
  4. Terminal experience; zsh + oh-my-zsh
  5. Other goodies!

This setup is pretty much what we use for the official Hypatia Software Organization Developer Image.

Sorry for the choppy and unprofessional video; I didn’t have much time to put this together, so please forgive me! ?

  1. Nice vídeo Lily, I learned more, do you have installed also in OpenBSD? thanks for the vídeo i will use in my laptop, see ya

    1. Firstly, thank you so much for your reply; it is very appreciated! I’m so glad you liked the video. 😀

      If you’re installing FreeBSD on a laptop, make sure to include powerd! Otherwise your laptop will frequently overheat x.x

      I can do an OpenBSD video 😀 Maybe I’ll have another org member do that, unless you strongly prefer that I do :p
