Bsd usr ports updating permission denied
Not like "portage is a strong point" but more like "feature XXX in portage rocks, but then YYY is better under bsd's ports because it has ZZZ" I am mainly intersted in the differences between portage / ports, init scprits, system configuration, kernel features (not stability, this has been widely covered).
Multiple languages support including asia languages chinese and japanese is also a requierement for me. Ports: * Things are tested before making it into the ports tree, sure things fail, but nearly as often as ebuilds.
Anyway, it's interesting to see that so many gentooers seem to like freebsd. If sytem should be a server and reliable without problems with setup and configure - Free BSD. I've used Free BSD, Gentoo, and other Linux Distros, and I'll just say this: Other Linux users will talk about how tough it is to Install and run a Gentoo system. Free BSD is a rock solid OS for what it's designed for - running servers.
I used it for years, and rather liked it myself._________________By the way, Netcraft stats showing that BSD/OS is on top and not Linux doesn't mean that Linux is unstable, unless of course you don't know what you're talking about. I would never use it as a Desktop because it's just too restrictive and too much of a pain.
Thus it is not possible to see a HP-UX, Linux or Solaris system with an uptime measurement above 497 days. But I've never had a security issue on any of my servers, so I can't say for sure which is more secure. I would never use it as a Desktop because it's just too restrictive and too much of a pain.
If I was building a server, I'd use Free BSD or Hardened Gentoo (I run servers on both). I saw a lot or answer in here saying things like "i like gentoo better" "bsd makes a better server" "portage ownz ports" "ports ownz portage" and so on.
I provide below technical details for questions in the comments section. On top of that, I beleive Free BSD has a better kernel, better TCP/IP stack, etc.Steven Hmm, this thread reminds me that I couldn't get freebsd to install on my newer box, which is why I ended up trying gentoo in the first place.Whatever I find on Internet focuses on: hide errors.None properly handles the process return-code / exit-code.Versions before 5 won't even boot from the install cd (they freeze up probing the hard drives); 5.3 boots but refuses to write a partition table. If it is the first one, then it means comparison between Ports and Portage. If we compare Linux vs Free BSD, then it depend what for your sytem done.This leads me to believe that freebsd just doesn't like my disk controller. For home comps and new technologies such as reiser4 and so on of course Linux.I use command find within bash scripts to locate some directories and then inspect their content.I evaluate command find success using the exit-code: a value zero works, otherwise fails. I need to prune files when: Otherwise it has not full access, which means: prune it.hello , between these two options what do you recommend 1.gentoo and freebsd on seperate partitions but on same system 2.
