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.

Kernel modules

Quag7, when you find something interesting in LINT (4.x) or NOTES (5.x) try: man module, most modules have their own manpages that explains what they do and how to use them.

Also note that on 5.x there are two NOTES files to look into, one machine independant (/sys/conf/NOTES) and one for the specific architecture that you are using (eg. /sys/i386/conf/NOTES) if you are on IA32.
