INSTALLATION

The installation went well, even the language package from PC-BSD 1.5.1 for 
German worked.
Only the Nvidia drivers did not work. The generic nv driver worked.

PBI

PBI installation and deinstallation worked well. As announced, not all 
programs installed through PBI worked.

MULTIMEDIA

Sound, Internet, Kopete, playing movies all worked.
Playing DVD's did not work. Neither in Kaffeine nor in Kmplayer.

HARDWARE

Mounting the second harddisk, connecting a USB MP3 player with a harddisk and 
a USB stick all worked.

CUSTOMIZATION

The default PC-BSD color scheme is not saved. Changing the color scheme means 
losing the PC-BSD color scheme.

FREEBSD

The locate command does not work (database too small). Using periodic weekly 
to change this does not help. It seems that the command periodic weekly does 
nothing.
