kfreebsd-amd64 base system ready
For those who want to play with it, there's a Debian GNU/kFreeBSD system for
Its stage is very preliminar and only useful for developers. Instructions:
- Install FreeBSD 6.0 for amd64, and setup network.
- Extract /boot/kernel from kfreebsd-image-6.0-1-amd64-generic, and use it to
replace the stock kernel from FreeBSD.
- Get base.tgz and extract it somewhere.
- Mount /dev (devfs) and /proc (linprocfs).
- chroot and run /native-install.
- Get /etc/passwd and /etc/group from a sane Debian system and copy them over
(/etc/shadow is NOT needed).
- Done. You should be able to install things via apt-get now.
This is due to Petr Salinger who did all the actual work of porting Glibc and
debugging it. Thanks a lot!
