An update of the Gentoo GNU/kFreeBSD proof-of-concept tarball has been rolled out. Improvements include an up-to-date toolchain (gcc 4.0, glibc 2.3.5, etc.), and the system being bootable and usable as a standalone system. It is now provided as a CD installer for anyone with minimal Gentoo experience to try it out.

It’s good to see this project actually get some progress. I look forward to seeing more work done with Gentoo Mac OSX and FreeBSD portages, as it would be nice to have portage be portable (ducks flying objects).
Very cool. I havn’t tried it yet. I wonder what sort of limitations there are compared to Portage on Linux?
I Just dislike this kind of misture of linux and FreeBSD, since is just the kernel that changes, what’s the point ? A linux userland in a BSD Kernel.
What, Linux kernel is just not enought and you ppl need a real kernel, a BSD kernel ?
Leave linux with is own minor kernel, or start using HURD
Long live to FreeBSD
