Easy installation and maintenance

FreeBSD operating system provides an easy-to-use software package manager (pkg) and ports to install and maintain software applications. There are thousands of software applications available under the FreeBSD package manager and ports collection.

FreeBSD package manager

Terminal ~
# Install Firefox
$ sudo pkg install firefox

# Update Firefox
$ sudo pkg update

# Get info about Firefox
$ pkg info firefox
Name           : firefox
Version        : 85.0.2,2
Installed on   : Tue Feb 16 17:24:40 2021 IST

# Remove Firefox
$ sudo pkg delete firefox

FreeBSD ports collection

FreeBSD Ports is another option available to install software applications. Ports install software from source code. Installing software from the FreeBSD ports collection can be fine-tuned by enabling and disabling compilation and configuration flags.

Terminal ~
# With ports collection installed,
# change to Firefox port directory
$ cd /usr/ports/www/firefox

# Compile and install Firefox
$ sudo make install

# Remove temp build files
$ sudo make clean

# Remove Firefox
$ cd /usr/ports/www/firefox
$ make deinstall
