Re: [Richard Stallman <email@example.com>] Re: Debian & BSD concerns
Ditto. Soon as you upload the packages, I'll try em. I see it as being
pretty simple: compile a BSD kernel capable of booting off ext2, enable
linux compatibility support by default, then just replace a few simultaneous
packages, such as init, procutils, pppd, etc.
Are there thoughts on whether we should do a "conflicts" between these
things, or use update-alternatives, and then provide a command to flip a
system over between being setup for one kernel or another? I'd like
changing kernels to be as easy as a simple command that runs a whole whack
of update-alternatives, and a reboot.
