Dear FreeBSD list members,

I am newbie on FreeBSD list. I am just studying the BSD system. Before this month I used Debian Linux only.

So, on linux I many times issued the following command: ps ax. It means: list all processes.
When I issued the ps -ef command on my FreeBSD, the output was: unable because procfs missing.

So, what can I do with my FreeBSD, if I want to issue a ps command?

I will look forward to hearing from you?
