OK third update:
Restarted the plan this time using Debian GNU/kFreeBSD as base after I
found out that the glibc-bsd project is still alive and kicking but was
just moved around without much notice...
Plans for tomorrow:
get a .mapping file for our convert2smgl script for debian
get our init system working - will most likely need some tweaks in the scripts
get spells for freebsd-utils, freebsd-buildtools, freebsd-loader,
freebsd-kernel, freebsd-libs, libfreebsd, libbsd, freebsd-moused
made, will NEED to host snapshots since I don't want svn+neon as
a basesystem depends...
modify current glibc spell to apply bsd related patches...
hopefully if all goes well get a working smgb chroot by end of the week...
make a basesystem-freebsd or modify the current basesystem spell to have
support for both... NOTE: diff depends, net-tools aren't really usefull/usable
I'd like to also thank the folks on #gnu-kbsd for their help in this.
They are the ones that maintain glibc-bsd and mess with all of this.
I'd like to ask for our cauldron wizards to take a look at the scripts
And see if our own iso scripts can be made to play nice. I will offer
the virtual machine and later my own box to generate the iso for this
when I have a chroot with all the spells in. I am using test grimoire and
devel sorcery though.
I still haven't decided if I should go with freebsd-5 or freebsd-6/-current.
I'm leaning more towards -6/-current as that has more hw support and would require
no extra patching of the kernel sources since their patches were accepted upstream.
It was a rather good day today...
Thank you for your attention now I'm off to sleep...
