    Default Debian GNU/kFreeBSD Becomes More Interesting

    Phoronix: Debian GNU/kFreeBSD Becomes More Interesting

    Since last year we have been talking about Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, one of the official ports for Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" that will bring a 32-bit and 64-bit FreeBSD kernel as an option to using the Linux kernel. Debain GNU/kFreeBSD still has the Debian user-land complete with its massive package repository and apt-get support, but the FreeBSD kernel is running underneath instead of Linux. Debian GNU/kFreeBSD has matured a lot over the past year and most recently it has switched to using the FreeBSD 8.1 kernel by default and also now supports ZFS file-systems...

    What do you mean? PTS here works here without problem. Only needed to manually compile php-gtk, which is very easy actually.

    As of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, i am testing it one week now (few bugs reported), but it works expectionably stable. Most programs works correctly, and it can be used. ZFS also works, as described, just install zfsutils which is now in Debian repository.

    @Michael

    Some tests did not get a result run when i tested it. You meant something which php needs to support with newer versions of PTS.
