Re: Arch BSD: Arch Linux Atop The FreeBSD Kernel

Just saying, but this would have to be systemd-free since it's on BSD

Re: Arch BSD: Arch Linux Atop The FreeBSD Kernel

The red is striking!  This will be an interesting effort.  Lots of packages will need to be compiled for BSD.  I noticed Openbox, SLIM and other ArchBang typical packages are already there.  The would need to be a lot of work on the wiki.  Right now the installation instructions take you to the Arch Linux wiki, but I think there will be some significant differences in how the ArchBSD will work.  oliver pointed out the most obvious, no systemd.

Certainly an interesting idea, early days yet just have to keep an eye on progress.

Re: Arch BSD: Arch Linux Atop The FreeBSD Kernel

EDIT: hey, thanks for that newsworthy post Stan.

...but I fear this is going to end up like debian's/kFreeBSD, actually, I'm wrong, it's more similar to the Gentoo/FreebSD project?
Correction: : BSD kernel + GNU/Linux userland BSD-userland,...., which still won't fix DRIVERS !, what about drivers ? I'm not sure how they'll deal with that -that's been an on-going issue with *BSD on the average user's  PC's/desktops/laptops ....

.... I mean, WHY is Arch even bothering with this idea ?
Wouldn't this be considered "anti-systemd" by Arch dev's standards' ?  -LoL.

Shhhhhh !, Lennart Poettering must be having a shit-fit right about now.
wink

oops, my bad, ArchBSD has absolutely nothing to do with the (lead)developers of "Arch" -> "...Arch BSD is an independently developed, ...." apparently.
-my mistake.
Anyway, that's ok, I'll still try n help with any "testing", 'cause they are sure gonna need it.

Re: Arch BSD: Arch Linux Atop The FreeBSD Kernel

... other news is it'll be using, along with other stuff, Arch's mighty "pacman",..., along with "OpenRC", (ZFS, from BSD is also a bonus).
so yep, NO "systemd". -yay!

Re: Arch BSD: Arch Linux Atop The FreeBSD Kernel

damn, I wish I never saw this now, what the heck is it with all these BSD-Haters' on Phoronix forums lately ? -(actually, a whole all 3 of them) -LoL.
anyway, I'm not helping much there, fanning their flames.

ArchBSD is a noble and smart effort, but only if BSD/dev's would also see the helping hand coming towards them. or is it ?
:confused now:   sad

Re: Arch BSD: Arch Linux Atop The FreeBSD Kernel

http://bbs.archbsd.net/viewtopic.php?pid=37#p37

(I volunteered to ask the below - and not archbsd):

There's a list of todo's over at archbsd, if anyone would like to help them out a bit, and got some spare time, or if you know someone who'd like to help?, with anything, then that'd be great, in any way.
- you guys know me here, and I'm defintely NOT trying to steal anything/anyone away..., on the contrary.

Thanks.
smile
