What is FreeBSD?

FreeBSD® is an advanced operating system for modern server, desktop, and embedded computer platforms. FreeBSD's code base has undergone over thirty years of continuous development, improvement, and optimization. It is derived from BSD, the version of UNIX® developed at the University of California, Berkeley. The FreeBSD website has all the information needed (especially the FreeBSD Handbook) to install and configure FreeBSD itself.

KDE on FreeBSD

The KDE/FreeBSD team hopes this site will be a valuable resource for all who are interested in maintaining the high level of compatibility between FreeBSD and KDE Software (through KDE4, and now with Frameworks, Plasma Desktop and Applications) that has been seen to date. The goal is to facilitate the discussion of patches, finding bugs, suggesting features and hopefully becoming a valuable member of both the KDE and FreeBSD communities.

Here on the KDE Community Wiki, we provide technical information on how KDE is built and packaged on FreeBSD and how you can contribute -- for instance by building software from the KDE community yourself.
