Hello. I'm brand new to FreeBSD. I'm mostly enjoying it so far. I'm playing with installing the Eclipse IDE port right now. I say playing with because I started to install it and saw the list of dependencies and shuddered. I like to keep my system relatively clean and tend to start a new install of Linux (and now BSD) as bare bones and add only what I need.
We're usually focused on making sure things work instead of keeping dependencies to a minimum. FreeBSD is not Windows (or some flavors of Linux) where you're afraid of installing any software because it will never really uninstall. Here we've got most things very clean and automated. So just go ahead and take it easy about all the dependencies. You're not installing Eclipse on an embedded system with 4Mb flash memory, are you. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
