Аннотация: Books on BSD; Users' guides; Administrators' guides; Programmers' guides; Hardware reference; The 4.4BSD manuals Getting FreeBSD on CD-ROM.

While the manual pages provide the definitive reference for individual pieces of the FreeBSD operating system, they are notorious for not illustrating howto put the pieces together to make the whole operating system run smoothly.

Since the last edition of this book, a number of other books on FreeBSD have appeared. We'll look at them first, though you can consider most of them to be an alternative to this book.

The 4.4 BSD manuals

The original 4.4BSD manual set includes the man pages and a number of documents on various aspects of programming, user programs and system administration. With a few minor exceptions, you can find the latest versions in /usr/share/man (the man pages) and /usr/share/doc (the other documents). If you want the original 4.4BSD versions, you can check them out of the repository.

If you prefer a bound version, O'Reilly and Associates published the original five-volume set of documentation for 4.4BSD as released by the CSRG in 1994, including the AT&T historical documents. Compared to FreeBSD, much of this documentation is severely out of date, and it's also out of print, though you should still be able to find it second-hand. It comprises the following volumes:

  • 4.4BSD Programmer's Reference Manual. These are sections 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the man pages for 4.4BSD.
  • Programmer's Supplementary Documents. You can find the latest versions of most of these documents in /usr/share/doc/psd.
  • 4.4BSD User's Reference Manual. This book contains sections 1, 6 and 7 of the 4.4BSD man pages.
  • 4.4BSD User's Supplementary Documents. You can find the latest versions of most of these documents in /usr/share/doc/usd.
  • 4.4BSD System Manager's Manual. Contains section 8 of the manual and a number of other documents. Youcan find the latest versions of most of these documents in /usr/share/doc/smm.
