I've been working on this for some time on and off.

Be aware that this is not quality work and I don't exactly know what I'm doing most of the time.

pacman supposedly working with FreeBSD*:
http://gitorious.org/pacman-bsd/pacman- … s/untested

PKGBUILDS:
http://gitorious.org/pacman-bsd/srcpkgs/trees/untested

Packages installed in chroot (like base + base-devel in Arch)

bash
binutils
cloog-ppl
expat
fakeroot
fbsd8-world
gcc45
gcc45-libs
gcc45-staticlibs
gettext
gmake
gmp
gperf
groff
libarchive
libelf
libiconv
libmpc
mpfr
pacman-bsd
pkg-config
ppl
sudo
xz

The pkgbase for fbsd8-{kernel,world} is fbsd8.
fbsd8 is the only PKGBUILD where shipped (4.2.1-based) gcc is used for building. All other packages are built with gcc45.

I push to branch "untested" instead of directly pushing to master.

* Note: You might see some weird makepkg code. That's because  I'm experimenting with autosplit/autodup support for makepkg and debug support based on autodup. You can completely ignore this code.

Re: Arch GNU/KFreeBSD: A more informed opinion.

Awesome work.

If you need help you can ask me or other arch hurders.

By the way,  debian has a lot of patches for kFreeBSD and GNU Hurd.

Re: Arch GNU/KFreeBSD: A more informed opinion.

Hello everyone sorry about abandoning this, i lost internet for some time.

@nezmer, are you useing stock freebsd and installing pacman from there or are you cross-compiling? if so, do you mind explaining your proccess.

I've got the cross-gcc-pass1 glibc-pass1 and cross-binutils built, but im having the same error thie (e)glibc that some_guy was having. I may start working on your PKGBUILDS nezmer however id prefer gnu/kfreebsd

Re: Arch GNU/KFreeBSD: A more informed opinion.

It seems unlikely that kolbycrouch will respond -- he hasn't posted in almost a year (you can get this information by clicking on his user name in one of his posts).

Necrobumping is generally discouraged. You will probably get better help if you start a new topic.

I'm afraid I can't offer any real help but I want to encourage you to go on with your project. After seeing a review of PC-BSD 9.1 on the Linux Action Show I read up on BSD in general. It wasn't new to me but I knew most things just from hearing about them. So I installed FreeBSD 9.0 on an old computer and run it as a server. I like the whole concept behind BSD a lot.

Re: Arch GNU/KFreeBSD: A more informed opinion.

I'm just writing the new PKGBUILDS for the new core packages that will replace some that where used on Linux and to fix some that failed to build. I'm doing the FreeBSD-* packages at the minute:

pkgbase=freebsd-utils               # Build freebsd utils
pkgname=freebsd-utils
#_pkgname=freebsd-utils
_srcname=freebsd-utils-9.0
pkgver=9.0
pkgrel=1
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
url="http://www.freebsd.org/"
license=('BSDL')
makedepends=('gcc')
options=('!strip')
_svntrunk=http://svn.freebsd.org/base/release/9.0.0
_svnmod=$_pkgname

build() {
    install -d "$srcdir"/$pkgname/
    cd "$srcdir"/$pkgname/

    msg "Starting SVN checkout..."
        svn co "$_svntrunk"/bin/{chflags,kenv}
  svn co "$_svntrunk"/sbin/{atacontrol,camcontrol,ccdconfig,devd,devfs,dmesg,dumpon,geom,mdconfig,mount,mount_cd9660,mount_ext2fs,mount_hpfs,mount_msdosfs,mount_nfs,mount_ntfs,mount_nullfs,mount_reiserfs,mount_udf,mount_unionfs,mount_std,savecore,swapon,sysctl,umount}
        mkdir etc
        cd etc
        svn co "$_svntrunk"/etc/devd
        cd ..
        svn co "$_svntrunk"/usr.bin/{kdump,ktrace,mkuzip}
        svn co "$_svntrunk"/usr.sbin/{acpi/acpiconf,rpc.umntall,jail}

Re: Arch GNU/KFreeBSD: A more informed opinion.

Moderator comment:  I am not really sure what to do with this thread.  It is old and crusty, but it is in the Discussion section and is less prone to Necrobump closure.  I am also not sure I want to spawn another Arch BSD thread.

As an aside, I fear that the recent change over to systemd by Arch Linux may well pour water on the embers of this project.  If I understand correctly, systemd is not expected to play well with BSD.

Re: Arch GNU/KFreeBSD: A more informed opinion.

unles this isnot closed:

the b43-fwcutter, not supposed taht work only for extract firmware for Linux???
ipreute{,2} isnot supposed that work only in linux??
the filesystem utilities...bsd support all tose filesystems, like jfsutils?? I think you need remplace with the official bsd equivalents (I think for UFS the ufs-utils)


Well, I suppose that this is somekind of signature, no?

Yeah, it could be a problem, if it is, I will just go for the old Arch Linux initscripts.

The above tests where just to see what worked, what packages I needed replacements for, and which packages I need to patch.

interesting, I going to try it, and if I can get X11+wireless work, you are sure that you can get a new user big_smile

for other side what compiler you going to use, gcc or llvm/clang???

I've started building the base with clang. Also what wireless device do you use.


As for startup, I'm went with openrc, it's pretty much on par with systemd minus one or two features, and a huge improvement from the bsd rc scripts.

Your wireless is supported by:

iwn(4)                   - Intel IEEE 802.11n wireless network driver

As fir the intel graphics drivers, it will work under experimental KMS support and the latest Xorg package. It has intel drivers available.

you remmember that gma500 = poulsbo = not-suported-by-intel ???

but this give me more hoppe in arch/gnu/clang/freebsd

:: There are 2 members in group base:
:: Repository core
   1) freebsd-kernel  2) freebsd-world

Enter a selection (default=all):
