FreeBSD Last week it was BSD week: OpenBSD 4.5, NetBSD 5.0, and DragonFlyBSD 2.2.1. FreeBSD 7.2 completes the picture, with every major BSD now having a new and fresh release waiting to be installed on your desktop, laptop, or server.

FreeBSD & DVD Playback

Thanks for all the positive comments. I am downloading the ISO to give it a go now.

One question. How do I play DVD on FreeBSD?

I need to install libdvdcss2 from debian-multimedia.org for my Debian box to play DVD.

It took me about 5 seconds to google the answer. This is when most people will tell you to RTFM, which stands for "Read the FAQ, Moops". This instruction was originally given to the Moors, but it was mistranslated as Moops.

It's been a while for me running a FreeBSD desktop, mostly servers but I did use VLC to view a DVD once. I think I had to mount the DVD manually first then point VLC to it with the File menu.

YMMV
