FreeBSD works great for many tasks out of the box. As an open source operating system, FreeBSD can be customized to optimally perform specialized tasks. This talk will cover some of the nuts and bolts of managing a customized version of FreeBSD. It is aimed at the server market rather than the embedded space. Topics will include strategies for maintaining local patches to the source tree, deploying unattended installs, and upgrading the OS version.
