Is there an existing implentation of syvint for BSD? Has anyone
modified the Debian version to work? I'm terribly unknowledgeable about
such things, but it seems it would be possible to trick sysvinit into
thinking it's talking to glibc. Couldn't someone just tweak the header
files? That seems to be all that would be neccessary to get sysvinit to
compile on BSD, although I don't know if that would make it work once
it was compiled.
The reason I ask is that this seems like one of the first steps to
molding a BSD kernel into a Debian system. I haven't heard any mention
or seen any evidence of work in the one download I was able to locate.
Also, is there any place I could go to get some remedial
instructions about running a chroot development environment? I'm not
sure I completely grasp how you can make a discrete system this way. I
had just planned on using a mininal install.
I'd appreciate any advice I could get on these matters. I'm very
interested in this project, and would like to contribute some work
without reinventing the wheel.
