Everything about FreeBSD says you have to take some time to learn how to use it. I have been using FreeBSD for 6 years (and others much longer) on many different machines from different vendors and have found it to be much more solid that most of those you spend large $$$ for in the commercial marketplace. But, you don't get something for nothing. Although FreeBSD is free, there is a cost and the cost is using some intelligent effort and learning how to use it. It works as the book says. If you are using a 4.xxx handbook to run a 5.xxx version of FreeBSD, then you might just notice the mismatch. > > George > > NOTE: I hate wasting time on unresolved issues that are claimed to be > resolved by the experts! You haven't paid enough money to have your problems resolved by experts. FreeBSD is developed and supported by volunteers who do not get paid for their work. If you bought a package, you paid for someone to burn the CDs for you and maybe include a printed handbook. You did not buy FreeBSD. If you want to sell your soul to MS, go ahead. ////jerry > > -----Original Message----- > From: Jerry McAllister [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: Monday, March 22, 2004 3:01 PM > To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] > Subject: Re: MAKEDEV - where is it? > > > Hi, > > > > would anyone know where the MAKEDEV file in FreeBSD version 5.1 resides if > > it does? > > I cannot find the file anywhere! > > Better do some studying or searching.
