Some documents may not be available in all languages.
The document's format. We produce the documentation in a number of different output formats. Each format has its own advantages and disadvantages. Some formats are better suited for online reading, while others are meant to be aesthetically pleasing when printed on paper. Having the documentation available in any of these formats ensures that our readers will be able to read the parts they are interested in, either on their monitor, or on paper after printing the documents. The currently available formats are:
A collection of small, linked, HTML files.
One large HTML file containing the entire document
Adobe's Portable Document Format
Plain text
The compression and packaging scheme.
Where the format is <literal>html-split</literal>, the files are bundled up using <citerefentry><refentrytitle>tar</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>. The resulting <filename>.tar</filename> is then compressed using the compression schemes detailed in the next point.
All the other formats generate one file. For example, <filename>article.pdf</filename>, <filename>book.html</filename>, and so on.
These files are then compressed using either the <literal>zip</literal> or <literal>bz2</literal> compression schemes. <citerefentry><refentrytitle>tar</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry> can be used to uncompress these files.
So the PDF version of the Handbook, compressed using <literal>bzip2</literal> will be stored in a file called <filename>book.pdf.bz2</filename> in the <filename>handbook/</filename> directory.
After choosing the format and compression mechanism, download the compressed files, uncompress them, and then copy the appropriate documents into place.
For example, the split HTML version of the <acronym>FAQ</acronym>, compressed using <citerefentry><refentrytitle>bzip2</refentrytitle><manvolnum>1</manvolnum></citerefentry>, can be found in <filename>doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/faq/book.html-split.tar.bz2</filename> To download and uncompress that file, type:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>fetch</userinput>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>tar xvf book.html-split.tar.bz2</userinput>
If the file is compressed, <application>tar</application> will automatically detect the appropriate format and decompress it correctly, resulting in a collection of <filename>.html</filename> files. The main one is called <filename>index.html</filename>, which will contain the table of contents, introductory material, and links to the other parts of the document.
Where do I find info on the FreeBSD mailing lists? What FreeBSD news groups are available?
Refer to the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/eresources.html#eresources-mail">Handbook entry on mailing-lists</link> and the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/eresources-news.html">Handbook entry on newsgroups</link>.
Are there FreeBSD IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channels?
Yes, most major IRC networks host a FreeBSD chat channel:
Channel <literal>#FreeBSDhelp</literal> on <link xlink:href="">EFNet</link> is a channel dedicated to helping FreeBSD users.
Channel <literal>#FreeBSD</literal> on <link xlink:href="">Freenode</link> is a general help channel with many users at any time. The conversations have been known to run off-topic for a while, but priority is given to users with FreeBSD questions. Other users can help with the basics, referring to the Handbook whenever possible and providing links for learning more about a particular topic. This is primarily an English speaking channel, though it does have users from all over the world. Non-native English speakers should try to ask the question in English first and then relocate to <literal>##freebsd-lang</literal> as appropriate.
Channel <literal>#FreeBSD</literal> on <link xlink:href="">DALNET</link> is available at <systemitem></systemitem> in the US and <systemitem></systemitem> in Europe.
Channel <literal>#FreeBSD</literal> on <link xlink:href="">UNDERNET</link> is available at <systemitem></systemitem> in the US and <systemitem></systemitem> in Europe. Since it is a help channel, be prepared to read the documents you are referred to.
Channel <literal>#FreeBSD</literal> on <link xlink:href="">RUSNET</link> is a Russian language channel dedicated to helping FreeBSD users. This is also a good place for non-technical discussions.
Channel <literal>#bsdchat</literal> on <link xlink:href="">Freenode</link> is a Traditional Chinese (UTF-8 encoding) language channel dedicated to helping FreeBSD users. This is also a good place for non-technical discussions.
The FreeBSD wiki has a <link xlink:href="">good list</link> of IRC channels.
