so after giving up on portage on NetBSD and DragonFlyBSD i try it on OpenBSD considering that there is already the OpenBSD/Gentoo project (http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/gentoo-alt/bsd/obsd/index.xml) i thought i would fallow this gude (http://dev.gentoo.org/~g2boojum/bsd.html). i tryed it and it didnt work at all. it bitched about how it couldent find various libs. they were usually there, however it would ask for libm.so.6 when there was libm.so.5. after i copyed all of it and it stopped asking for libs i tryed "emerge info" and got this:

[08:39:22] [root @ OpenBSD] /usr/lib # # emerge
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

then i debugged with this and got:

[08:40:34] [root @ OpenBSD] /usr/lib # # systrace emerge info
Error: Can't open display:
Killed

Why not try Gentoo/FreeBSD as it is more developed and 'supported'

Moved from Portage & Programming to Gentoo on Alternative Architectures. Split off some inapproprate wordings as well.

because i dislike FreeBSD. anywy if you guys have a OpenBSD/Gentoo project you should support it, not point to something else

There was some work being done to port Gentoo to OpenBSD but I think that pretty much stalled, and has become vapourware.

It might return though, I, for one, would like to put Portage on my OpenBSD machine. Last time I did it, it didn't run too badly, but it was still quite immature. I'd have a guess, that in this case, you'd need to start from scratch -- a lot has changed in Portage since that port was attempted. Cascading profiles were added for starters, also, there isn't an x86-obsd keyword, nor OpenBSD profiles in the tree anymore.

Most of the effort is being focussed on FreeBSD, but it does share similarities with OpenBSD... so a port certainly isn't out of the question.

At the moment all the 'official' Gentoo/*BSD development is on FreeBSD. There are people working unofficially on NetBSD and Dragonfly, but the OpenBSD port is pretty much dead at the moment.

But yes, as Redhatter said, the differences between the systems aren't too great, and most of the work we've been doing should apply to any of them.
