I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt, and figure you just haven't learned yet how to effectively find documentation. These are some documents that may be of use to you for tuning FreeBSD. Kernel config: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/kernelconfig-building.html System configuration files: man 8 config General performance tuning: man 7 tuning Security tuning: man 7 security Security tuning for the X Window System: man 7 Xsecurity Searching for FreeBSD docs on the web: Go to Google and add "freebsd handbook" to your search string, with quotes. If that doesn't work, try "freebsd" (without quotes) instead. Searching for information in manpages: Use either the "apropos" or "man -k" command, with a search term as an argument. For instance, "apropos tuning" or "man -k tuning" would have led to the tuning(7) manpage. When you find a manpage that is in the same general topic area, but you still want more information, check the "SEE ALSO" section of the manpage. The "FILES" section is sometimes useful for finding more information, too -- and sometimes, the listed files have their own manpages. Learning to research your own answers is a good idea for a whole lot of reasons. FreeBSD is one of the most well-documented OSes I've ever seen, so perhaps your tendency to ask questions without bothering to try looking up the information in standard documentation first is based on experience with other, less well-documented OSes. Once you become more familiar with the quality and extensiveness of FreeBSD documentation, you will surely find that some simple research is faster for most tasks than any user community mailing list or telephone support line could ever be. Hope that helps. -- CCD CopyWrite Chad Perrin [ http://ccd.apotheon.org ] John Kenneth Galbraith: "If all else fails, immortality can always be assured through spectacular error." _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
