Wow, it's been over a month since I posted on
here! Been really busy, day and night, working
on the old Netserver, adding ports, learning
port maintenance, picking up all kinds of tips
on Dru Lavigne's blog at Oreilly, recompiling
kernels, doing complete src upgrade rebuilds,
even tried creating a src repository, but ran
into some problems. I also tried using cvsup
on my xp box, but it was a lot of work for
nothing. Always had problems with corrupted
mac messages when running cvsup. Read a lot
on it and the main problem is, ssh having to
be patched to run on anything but OpenBSD.
At least that's what I gleaned from it. It
even has problems sometimes on FreeBSD, but
it always links back up and starts d/l again
after a time-out. Windows wouldn't do that.
I've even got some "invisible" files left
behind in my home dir in cygwin on the xp
box from cvsup. Can't delete them, either.
What a trip! Took my son's old PIII 800 box
and setup PC-BSD on it. Tried Ubuntu first,
but ran into big time problems with setting
up Xwindows, so I just blew that one off.
Had a really nice desktop, but I never could
get it out of 480x640 mode. When I did, it
all went to hell. Only problems I ran into
with PC-BSD was with the menu editor. I got
my one account so screwed up, I just wiped
it out and recreated it. Too used to working
at the terminal, typing everything in. Never
have had great luck with X in nix or bsd's.
