[News] New Walkthrough of FreeBSD 8.0

Hash: SHA1

FreeBSD 8.0 installation walk-through

,----[ Quote ]
| Unfortunately, FreeBSD is a great operating 
| system with an unholy awful installer â 
| compared to other operating system installers 
| currently available. Some people are 
| comfortable with text-mode installers, some 
| arenât.
| They are nothing to be afraid of if you have 
| a moderate amount of knowledge, but for those 
| who absolutely require a more up-to-date 
| installer, PC-BSD may be of more interest 
| than FreeBSD. Having said that, the 
| installation is probably the hardest part of 
| using FreeBSD, so if youâve made it through 
| this, FreeBSD is a lot of fun to play with.



Benchmarking Debian's GNU/kFreeBSD

,----[ Quote ]
| There has been an effort underway within the
| Debian development community to pull the
| FreeBSD kernel within this distribution to
| provide an alternative to using the Linux
| kernel. In essence with this Debian
| GNU/kFreeBSD project you have the standard
| Debian package set providing a GNU user-land
| with a GNU C library, but the FreeBSD kernel
| is running underneath. The Debian project has
| also been working on Debian GNU/Hurd to
| effectively do the same thing but with the GNU
| Mach microkernel. But unlike Debian GNU/Hurd,
| with the release of Debian 6.0 "Squeeze",
| Debian GNU/kFreeBSD will reach a release
| status. With the Debian Squeeze release being
| just two months away we have decided to
| provide the first public set of benchmarks
| that compare the Debian GNU/kFreeBSD
| performance to that of Debian GNU/Linux. We
| have tested both the 32-bit and 64-bit builds
| of Debian with the Linux and FreeBSD kernels.


Debian pushes development of kFreeBSD port

,----[ Quote ]
| The Debian Release Team is pleased to announce that it sees
| the port of the Debian system to the FreeBSD kernel fit to be
| handled equal with the other release ports. The upcoming
| release codenamed 'Squeeze' is planned to be the first Debian
| distribution to be released with Linux and FreeBSD kernels.


Debian GNU/kFreeBSD amd64 development machine

,----[ Quote ]
| The Debian GNU/kFreeBSD porters are pleased to announce that there is now a
| Debian GNU/kFreeBSD amd64 machine available to the Debian developers. It is
| kindly hosted by "ETH ZÃrich, Department of Physics". We would like to thank
| them for their contribution to the GNU/kFreeBSD development.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
