Re: netbsd-i386 apt archive gone?


I've been working on my Live (K)FreeBSD project and was attempting to package
the makefs program (http://www.daemonology.net/makefs/) for Debian. makefs would allow userspace creation of rootfs/ramdisks from user space (so you could use your site's existing Debian/Linux server to assemble the live ISO/NFSroot from pure binaries).

For live CD/DVD, you can also take a look at
It might be easier to just refresh some script in

One thing that would help is the purported-to-exist package of NetBSD's make ("netbsd-make" - http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=194260), which is a Build-Depend. It seems the apt archive holding that, and possibly more of the old netbsd-i386 port, is gone: http://debian-bsd.lightbearer.com/

You can also try to install pmake or freebsd-buildutils package
and use pmake, resp. freebsd-make. Both packages are available on all architectures.
