Re: Maybe FAQ


I am having troubles with the install disc. By the end of the
installation the cd cannot load sometimes the kernel, sometimes the
documentation etc... I thought it could be my cd is damaged, so that I
downloaded the iso again and md5sum
debian-20061213-kfreebsd-i386-install.iso shows

f8c1531e61750e757ba6600687186ff3  debian-20061213-kfreebsd-i386-install.iso

whilst in the web page it is


this is obviously not the same message digest...

now what?

Petr is encouraging me to install debian-bsd (he seems to be the only
member of this list having done it)

let me know

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

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.

It is not good idea. Please use chroot for things like this.

In the same way as on other Debain system - usual prefix is /usr

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.
