PC-BSD 9.0 installer doesn't explain anything about FreeBSD slices
|Reported by:||Boug||Owned by:||kris|
PC-BSD was created to allow non-expert users to easily install and use an alternative system to Linux, Windows or Mac OSX. And as this, it has to explain it's particularities to non-expert people, especially about it's partitioning way.
So, it would be nice for new and inexperienced users that the PC-BSD installer explains briefly how PC-BSD is partitioned : it might briefly explain the FreeBSD slices and that the root partition is in fact a part of a slice which itself has to be a primary partition created from an ext2-3-4, FAT, NTFS or any other file system for the system to be installed!
Imagine you are a pure FreeBSD newbie : how would you know that? The most of the new PC-BSD users come from the Linux world, and even me, who was a very experienced Linux user, I was lost with the slices partitioning system with no explaination at the beginning.
