Just get some binaries and put them wherever you want. Shared libraries must go in /compat/linux/lib or /compat/linux/usr/lib. > > I want to experiment with some linux stuff under freeBSD.

You'll need to make two cross-compilers first: one build = FreeBSD host = FreeBSD target = Linux and one build = FreeBSD host = Linux target = Linux (Linux emulation) Not for the faint of heart. (I couldn't do this, so maybe this is all wrong). -- [off topic ends here] -- For sane people, no tarballs, just binaries. :-) But yes, just put the programs wherever you want. But they must be branded: $ brandelf -f 3 myprog -- Josh _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
