Tips and Tricks for FreeBSD


Want to have your prompt to display something like this ?
username@hostname currentpath>
Example: /usr/home/ghostrdr>
 If so, here is the command to do such:    set prompt = "%n@%m %~> "
For other options that you can have off the command prompt, do man tcsh

Problems with version 3.1 not seeing your hosts.allow, and hosts.deny after installing FreeBSD v3.1 ?
The problem with this is, if you compiled TCP Wrappers from the ports, then the 3.1 expects them to be in the /usr/local/etc not in the /etc directory. So, these files are no longer seen in the /etc directory anymore, they are seen in the /usr/local/etc instead, so to make sure your system is able to use these files, make sure they are in the /usr/local/etc and NOT in the /etc directory.

Want to tar up a directory, then gzip it once you are done with the tar ?
  Do the following :

  tar cvvfz target.tar.gz dir\
