Also, I'm not sure when you guys tried Gentoo, but as of late (within the past ~1 year), the quality of the packages and system as an OS has improved quite a bit, in the sense that many stable items now install and work properly in the OS. Another off-topic comment I admit, but I thought it should be mentioned...
I've been trying to deal with it for the past two months, on and off. OpenOffice would not compile, Xorg took a lot of tweaking and a few attempts, and a few other programs provided a bit of challange. Only KDE went more smoothly than it did in FBSD.
I'd like to see portage in FBSD though, since ruby is pretty kludgy. Either that or a different means of recording package data and dependencies (been thinking of Perl for a while..).
Where does Ruby fit into this? To my knowledge, ports uses Perl to my knowledge, and Portage uses Python. And while I wouldn't mind a few of the portage features, such as about 10k more packages, and a few of the interface/display options, I'd still rather use FBSD any day. -Jim _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
