Original OSNews Interviews Today we feature an in-depth interview with three members of FreeBSD's Core (Wes Peters, Greg Lehey and M. Warner Losh) and also a major FreeBSD developer (Scott Long). It is a long read, but we touch a number of hot issues, from the Java port to corporate backing, the Linux competition, the 5.x branch and how it stacks up against the other Unices, UFS2, the possible XFree86 fork, SCO and its Unix IP situation, even re-unification of the BSDs. If you are into (any) Unix, this interview is a must read.

NOTES it is.

Ah hah, thanks Wes. I was looking for LINT, couldn't find it in 5.0 until someone on a FreeBSD support channel gave me a command to generate it, but it didn't generate what I expected. I'm looking at NOTES now, and this is just what I was looking for. Thanks. I'm going to read over this file completely. I am still digging into the documentation on a lot of things.

Actually I have been running portupgrade with the (-a) switch (Upgrade all installed packages) now for several hours, and it's going along swimmingly (To make another Gentoo comparison, this is like emerge --update world, pretty much).

I still don't have my sound working properly but it may be unsupported; it's onboard sound from a 5 year old computer. I haven't worked with it much yet.
