Does anybody have experience with installation Gentoo/FreeBSD ? Following http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/gentoo-freebsd.xml I am running
Code:
emerge -e system
With my Gentoo installation to run this command takes some 3 hours. But now emerging sys-devel/gcc-4.2.2 lasting 3 hours. Is it normal or should I interrupt it?

Hey,

Good to see more people experimenting with Gentoo/FreeBSD! :)

Now, onto business... The amount of time it takes for packages varies. gcc is a well-known large package which will often take a number of hours to compile, even on relatively modern systems.
Here's how long it took on my 2.4GHz P4 computer with 1GB RAM:

Code:
Pythagoras ~ # qlop -tH gcc
gcc: 4 hours, 31 minutes, 29 seconds for 4 merges
Pythagoras ~ #


So, yeah, don't cancel the compile. Else you're gonna be waiting even longer, and I'm sure you won't want that ;)

If you're an IRC user, feel free to pop into #gentoo-bsd on irc.freenode.net!

welp

Thanks Welp. I finished installation. When configured kernel I did not make any changes. Problem is that I am not able to boot into Gentoo/FreeBSD. Former lilo.conf looked like that
Quote:
LBA32
boot = /dev/sda
map = /boot/.map

menu-scheme=Wb
prompt
timeout=50
delay = 50
default = Windows

image = /boot/kernel-2.6.22-gentoo-r9
root = /dev/sdb5
label = Gentoo
read-only

other = /dev/sda1
label = Windows
table = /dev/sda

other = /dev/sdb1
label = FreeBSD
table = /dev/sdb
and everythings worked fine.After finished installation of Gentoo/FreeBSD I added
Quote:
other = /dev/sdb2
label = GFBSD
table = /dev/sdb
but my LILO booted FreeBSD even if I choose GFBSD. I added
Code:
loader=/boot/chain.b
Did not help.After that commented part
Quote:
other = /dev/sdb1
label = FreeBSD
table = /dev/sdb
but my LILO still keeps booting FreeBSD. I am not able to find out solution at the moment.

I'm also currently going down the road of installing Gentoo/FreeBSD. However I encounter some problems when rebuilding the system.

I downloaded the stage3 via the link in the documentation and did a "emerge --sync". Now the problems start:


  • portage and bash block each other (manual resolution fixed this)
  • python cannot be upgraded because /usr/sbin/python-upgrader belongs to python-2.4.4, but is a package on its own with ptyhon-2.5 (manual resolution fixed this)
  • groff configure complains about g++ not being smart enough to compile it (what the heck???)
  • ...


It goes on like this with a few other issues. Searching the forums didn't turn out any problems like those. My experience with gentoo (4 years sysop @ university) also suggest that I'm doing something wrong here. (Blame yourself first...)

Did anyone encounter similar problems?

Sincerely
Meikel

I did not have problems like you during installation. Problems started with installation of the applications. Up to now I was not able correctly install xorg-server.I would like to know if anybody can run Gentoo/BSD as main OS.

Is it like this?
Code:
checking that C++ compiler can compile simple program... yes
checking that C++ static constructors and destructors are called... no
configure: error: a working C++ compiler is required

I am facing this error while building groff. Also, i have mysqld, nmap and bunch of other apps segfaulting. I copied a simple C++ program from a friend, it compiles fine but then I get segfault while running it.
Here's the output of g++ -v
Code:

Use actual FreeBSD. Gentoo/FreeBSD is a mess.

The project isn't a mess, and yeah, it's still alive. The team is doing an huge work to port g/fbsd to 7.0. you can find more infos on my blog http://davzero.wordpress.com or looking at gentoo-bsd ml. If you want to help or get more informations send a mail to bsd@g.o or drop two lines in #gentoo-bsd (Freenode network)

Regards

dav
