Hi, I was wondering if there is any way (preferably an easy way) to build Linux applications from source on FreeBSD with the intention of running them in FreeBSD.
My conundrum is this: I want to be able to use a Java (and perhaps Flash) plugin with Firebird on my FreeBSD workstation. From what I understand, a native FreeBSD Java web browser plugin doesn't quite exist and isn't likely to in the near future. There's a linux-mozillafirebird port in the www ports tree that would let me use the Linux Blackdown Java plugin, but that does not build with GTK2, and thus, cannot utilize anti-aliased fonts. So, I am left to roll my own. I'd like to be able to build Firebird in FreeBSD, but I have a Linux installation that I can use if that's either not possible or not so easy. I suspect that I'll have library issues to deal with, but beyond that I don't really know. I skimmed through all the documentation on FreeBSD.org, but anything dealing with Linux emulation seems to only mention running Linux apps, not building them to work with the Linux emulation layer. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
