Why focus on KDE? It is not as that good.

Thay should give user a at least minimal choise:
Gnome
Xfce
KDE

I'd like to see most of the Window managers like E17, Icewm, XFCE, GNome ported on PCBSD...

E17, XFCE, Gnome are WMs? ;)

Then why even bother PC-BSD? go FreeBSD all the way and have everything build for YOU not for masses.

From what I read on their forum, they won't offer any other D.E. any time soon because they have other priorities and probably because they want to have a unified product. If you want a Gnome or XFCE desktop, you're better off using FreeBSD.

We ALREADY offering other window managers BY DEFAULT. FluxBox is default if you choose "server" installation method.

First way is to have /tmp attached to a memory disk. It could work similar to this:

# vnconfig -e -s labels -S 1024m vn1
# disklabel -r -w vn1 auto
# newfs /dev/vn1c
# mount /dev/vn1c /tmp
# chmod 4777 /tmp

It's fast and does not need to be cleaned automatically or manually. But it consumes RAM, of course.


You guys actually read what I wrote already? We use SWAP backed /tmp and it won't consume that much memory.

/etc/rc.conf:
# tmpmfs Flags
tmpmfs="YES"
tmpsize="800m"
tmpmfs_flags="-S"


That's all- this is default in PC-BSD.
