-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Thanks to all. Looks like it's going to be a "guess and test" to find an OS I really like. I'm probably eventually going to get Panther when it comes out. Since I work for a school...academic price is nice and cheep! :)
Again, thanks to all. - --Brian - -----Original Message----- From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] On Behalf Of Paul Beard Sent: Friday, October 10, 2003 6:23 PM To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Subject: Re: FreeBSD on a Mac G3?

Very nifty. Works very well. I used Fink for quite a while but it seemed to lose focus on reliability. I moved to darwinports (which offers source code ports and packages) and it seems to work just fine. - -- Paul Beard / 8040 27th Ave NE / Seattle WA 98115 / paulbeard [at] mac [ dot] com / 206 529 8400 weblog @ <http://paulbeard.no-ip.org/movabletype/> _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: PGPfreeware 6.5.8 for non-commercial use <http://www.pgp.com> iQA/AwUBP4c9hERPmxonqOz6EQLnpACg9F2GFce1x6Vz2Ar+qCiyjEHAjaYAoLvy jUzv7KgLACPpcGf60EaI9HZC =QsYs -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
