Subject bsdi --> freebsd
Date Fri, 01 Aug 1997 18:41:49 GMT
Yeah, this is a little off topic; but I'm planning on moving from BSDI to
FreeBSD on hyperreal, and I was wondering if one of the local freebsd gurus
could provide some assistance.

FreeBSD claims to support BSDI binaries.  I'm /hoping/ that I could avoid a
full backup/format disks/restore from tape juggernaut by simply dropping in
a new binary as /bsd.  Then over time complete the install by recompiling
different services one by one.  Of course I'm probably smoking crack.  The
docs at don't talk at all about specifics of BSDI ->
FreeBSD conversion, suggesting I'll have to take the long road.  

Any suggestions or pointers would be appreciated.  Thanks!
