Thanks for the explanation. Added now.

"dpkg -S dtrace" on io (kfreebsd-i386 testing, so no 8.0 kernel yet)
says (beyond others):

kfreebsd-image-7.2-1-686: /lib/modules/7.2-1-686/dtrace_test.ko
kfreebsd-image-7.2-1-686: /lib/modules/7.2-1-686/dtrace.ko
kfreebsd-image-7.2-1-686: /lib/modules/7.2-1-686/dtraceall.ko

And "dpkg -S zfs":

kfreebsd-image-7.2-1-686: /lib/modules/7.2-1-686/zfs.ko

I fear that this is less important since Xen seems to become less

Would be interested to see them when they are working / ready. :-)

Hehe, I started with Lynx (including Lynx Style-Sheets) and text-mode
as presentation tool, because I didn't get X working on my very first
ThinkPad (an 760ED from 1996) for quite while. S5 was the consequent
successor. :-)
