sure, if it runs on FreeBSD. Look for the porting handbook. If you're the only one that wants to use it, you may have to do the porting. > I tried about a year or so ago, but gave up.

Lots of ports run under linux emulation. http://www.freebsd.org/ports/linux.html Did you get it working well under emulation on FreeBSD? If so, then it would be a good candidate for a port (if anyone wants to use it and do the porting) Tim To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
