Playing with FreeBSD


Got boot-only iso and managed to install it on my Parallel Desktop on my Macbook Air with Yosemite. 

Of course it just CLI.

Strange, the root shell have tab completion feature, but the normal users didn’t.

(DuckDuckGo-ing)

The answer come from 2003 and 2005 Mailing-List, :)

To enable tab completion
 
$chsh -s /bin/tcsh

 
(it didn’t enable tab completion actually , it change shell with tab completion feature :) )
We could so use
 

$chsh -s /bin/csh 

 
tcsh shell support tab completion too.

 
Another thing is, normal user can’t use sudo command (because it’s not installed, :P )
So,  install sudo first (I used pkg command instead of pkg_add)

 
#pkg install sudo 
 
 
edit /usr/local/etc/sudoers as root and visudo command (don’t edit it using regular vi editor, or ANY editor)

%visudo

add this

username ALL=(ALL) ALL

 
and life become more easier...
