Re: NetBSD packages
wow. i'm very impressed.
apt (should be trivial, I just haven't got round to it yet due to nothing
else depending on it)
i'm very interested in this.
console-tools/data (probably needs to be replaced by BSD analogues)
which are these? i'm not actually very familiar with debian.
e2fsprogs (need to build an analogous ufsprogs package - does it need to
i believe these should be easy to build.
kernel-image (obviously needs to be packaged NetBSD code)
ldso (package NetBSD one)
note there are two: /usr/libexec/ld.so (a.out) and /usr/libexec/ld.elf_so,
but you will also need a linux one in /emul/linux/whatever/it/lives.so.
libc6 (package NetBSD one)
? libc6 is glibc? i'm not sure it works on netbsd.
libpam (package netBSD version?)
don't think this exists.
procps (NetBSD version)
i would avoid using a /proc based ps(1) with a modern NetBSD kernel.
our /bin/ps is not setuid, or setgid, and works extremely fast. you
should definately use it.
sysvinit (need to decide what we're doing with this one - use BSD init and
lose ability to switch runlevels, or port/write a System V style init)
i believe you should go for a full sysvinit, but i know that this would
be a hard sell back to the netbsd camp. (extending our rc.d / rcorder
system with some runlevel-like feature would probably work though?)
i'm going to have to check out your work.
