FreeBSD is a complete system, not a collection of projects that are put together by people building distributions. I don't believe you can easily download *just* libc. The documentation is included as man pages in the source tree. It's not clear what the best way to get the soruces is. You can go somewhere like: <URL: ftp://ftp2.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/i386/4.7-RELEASE/src/ > and get slib.*. Those files can be cat'ed togeter, ungzip'ed and the untarred. You can also try fetching the sources from the CVS server. Be aware that you WILL NOT be able to use standard Linux utilities with the FreeBSD libc. There was a project to tweak the FreeBSD user code - libraries and commands - to run on a Linux kernel. I'm not sure what happened to it. If you google through the FreeBSD mail archives, you can probably find a URL for more information. <mike -- Mike Meyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://www.mired.org/consulting.html Independent WWW/Perforce/FreeBSD/Unix consultant, email for more information.
