hi,

is there actually someone that has succesfully installed portage on fbsd??
because as straight forward as the howto seems to be, the troubles arise when we do

emerge -eva system

Indeed, emerge complains about the ebuild of the first package (freebsd-mk-defs-5.3), ebuild seems to be fulla errors.
Another issue is that eerror is missing and einfo is missing as well (says emerge -eva system).

People on #gentoo-bsd don't even bother to answer...so here am i..

Can anyone advise something or should we just only wait for a fresh and decent well tested install process?

Thx by advance

Hi!
I have 5.4-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso. So, I have all /usr/sys stuff. Can I just tar&bzip2 this sources instead of downloading tarballs? Can anyone list the contents of this tarballs?

EDIT: I found extract.sh script, that does all this work =) So my problem is solved, I think :)

I followed the guide but everytime I do "emerge packagename" or even "emerge -p package name" I get the following:

Code:
ARCH is not set..."


And part of the error message asks if I set the /etc/make.profile symlink correctly, which I verified I did right.

Hello, ok probably know the answer to this one already, NO, but would you say gentoo/free bsd is ready fro productions use?

i ask because i love gentoo/portage but gentoo has poor support in web hosting area and i have been looking to setting up h-sphere cluster which does support freebsd.


cheers

I prepared a qemu disk image with freeBSD 5.4-release (minimal). If you are interested, you can find the link here: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-375930.html.

The post is in italian (my language! :D), but the link to the image is:

Ciao! (bye in italian!)

I have been away from G/FBSD front for a long time. RL stuff caught up. :(

The latest instructions for installing G/FBSD are now on official gentoo webspace, here.

But as the end of that page warns,
Quote:

At the moment, there are still quite a lot of known issues. Here are the ones really worth noting:
  • Some init scripts depend on the clock service which we don't provide right now. You can just remove it from the dependencies of the script and report that on our bugzilla. Please remember to use the "Gentoo BSD" product for your submission
  • Some ebuilds have hardcoded -ldl flags to link against libdl to get dlopen(). This needs to be fixed
  • xorg-x11 6.8.99.14 and .15 won't build. Until this has been fixed, you can revert to xorg-x11-6.8.99.13. An ebuild can be obtained via ViewCVS
  • glib and gnome in general need a lot of fixes to be backported.


In other words, this work is still not production-ready.

Ive been curious about Gentoo|FreeBSD for some time. I used Gentoo for the first time on my sun Ultra 5 workstation since after using Solaris 10 ... the package management left me feeling... lost. after a week. Emerge felt so natural.

I was using FreeBSD for a long time before i tried gentoo then. And i was used to Ports, ( Portupdate is your best freind. The freebsd team NEED to put it in the base package! )

But the question is.... What is Gentoo|FreeBSD aiming for... Gentoo using the FreeBSD kernel and only the gentoo userland... or something ... more?

Like... Adding Portage to FreeBSD itself, modifying the apropriate things to enable the builds via simple emerge... perhaps even reaching the level where the it can Emerge a system update ... this is the one thing ive had no end of trouble with FreeBSD... gentoo made it a breeze.. but on BSD i couldnt manage it, i had to stick to the Release ISOs cause the upgrade via recompile was to daunting. If Gentoo|FreeBSD could automate that with the same simplicity it has on Gentoo|Linux. Then id be sold.

And while were at it... As long as Gentoo|FreeBSD and an existing FreeBSD install with X, Userland, tools, progs, etc, can co exist... im more than happy to test things...

I think Gentoo|freebsd is the best of both worlds... giving the best of BSD and Linux in the one system.

I realy like seeing projects like this, Portaris, and GeNToo even. theyre inovative and encourage better cross platform code :) (where possible )

Hello,
Before, excuse me for my bad english
I use Gentoo/freebsd in vmware. I have install xfce and now i wan't install KDE. I have unmask kde3.5.6 but that freeze in kdebase with
Code:

checking if UIC has kde plugin available...

You can see the screenshot : http://www.frogdev.info/fbsd/machine.png
After one day I have the same message.

I have unmerge and emerge qt-3 and kdelibs and I have tried every version of qt-3*

I see this bug http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81066 but that don't resolve my problem.
If you have any idea :lol:
