Installing and Configuring PC-BSD - Parts 4 (& 5)

Opps, I missed this. Part 4 of the continuing series focuses on getting the following up and running on our PC-BSD/FreeBSD systems:
  1. amaroK: *nix music player
  2. Limewire: P2P file-sharing application
  3. Azereus: bittorrent P2P distribution application (my personal favorite bittorrent client, FWIW. Java required. See Part 1 to install it if you haven't already.)
  4. Streamtuner: internet radio stream directory browser
The author states that Part 5 (covering K3B, system updates, and other good stuff) will be out shortly. If you missed any of the previous sections here are the links:
  1. Part I
  2. Part II
  3. Part III
[Updated: 29 Aug. 2005.]

Part 5 in the series is now available!

Covers installing K3b which, as our author indicates, is"the greatest DVD/CD burning tool in the UNIX world." I agree, it is a wonderful frontend to CD/DVD mastering tools. Also covered is:
  1. Updating the PC-BSD system from FreeBSD 5.4 to 6 (Beta)
  2. Installing SNES9X--a Super Nintendo Entertainment System emulator for *nix
  3. Inkscape--" Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, Freehand, CorelDraw, or Xara X using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format." This is one of my personal favorites...
  4. Bluefish--"...a powerful [web] editor for experienced web designers and programmers."
  5. chkrootkit--a system rootkit scanner. Michael provides instructions for scheduling automatic scans with cron and outputting the results to your home dir.
