hm, actually (almost) all linux applications are installed using RPM packages.

Using RPM database is not supported since FreeBSD has its own package database for all applications including linux ones. Said that I don't mean it doesn't work. If you need to use RPM database to register applications that does not exist at ports you may give it a try. But the best way is to create ports for those applications and install them from ports. BTW, they really don't need to exist at the official portstree. You may place them, say, to /usr/ports/local. A PR with them will be a good thing though. -- WBR, Boris Samorodov (bsam) Research Engineer, http://www.ipt.ru Telephone & Internet SP FreeBSD Committer, http://www.FreeBSD.org The Power To Serve _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
