Re: Running Debian GNU/kFreeBSD in a FreeBSD jail ...
2. when I did an 'apt-get install sshd', it tried to create a symlink from
/sbin/MAKEDEV -> /dev/MAKEDEV, but FreeBSD 6.x uses devfs, which you can't
link into ... is there a flag for apt-get that will disable that behaviour?
Well, you can link (devfs /dev devfs rw 0 0):
ls -l /dev/MAKEDEV
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root root 13 Jan 17 08:20 /dev/MAKEDEV -> /sbin/MAKEDEV
It is created during each startup by /etc/init.d/makedev
May be jail have extra restriction.
