Re: Maybe FAQ
I may be asking questions to be already FAQs, but I cannot find any
FRQ , so ... I ask :-)
There is a short one - http://wiki.debian.org/Debian_GNU/kFreeBSD_FAQ
Fell free to extend it by answers bellow ;-)
Take also look at links from http://wiki.debian.org/Debian_GNU/kFreeBSD
1) Is there any way to upgrade to Debian-*bsd an existing, running
FreeBSD installation (wheter it makes sense or not)
I am unsure about this. You can prepare filesystem on a different
partition/slice and use chroot to install basic files.
Look inside iso at
there should be base.tgz somewhere inside debian-20061213-kfreebsd-i386-install.iso.
But at least multi-threaded programs will not work under pristine FreeBSD kernel.
2) Can *.deb packages co-exist with classical BSD ports ?
It is not good idea. Please use chroot for things like this.
3) Are the *.deb packages for *bsd handled the same old way they did
on linux, or they simply use /usr/local filesystem ?
In the same way as on other Debain system - usual prefix is /usr
4) What about some specs I once read about leaving the use of
/usr/local to the system administrator (Maybe these are concerning
only to Linux...)
There are (almost) no files from any *.deb in /usr/local/
It is really left for local system administrator.
Sorry for terse answers, but my Christmas time
is dedicated mainly to my family.
