I would like to do some benchmarking against my 4.5-STABLE but I have no idea which ones in ports/benchmarking are any good. Any ideas? I would also like to disable any debuging parts and do a make world, but I have to look into that a little farther. Hopefully this “release” can hammer out some of the bugs with different apps, and make this branch a reality. 2002-04-10 12:33 am Anonymous Let’s see…nope, no real 1394 support. Back to Windows hell I go… 2002-04-10 12:40 am Anonymous Why would you need 1394 support on a clearly-defined-by-its-maintainers *Server* OS? 2002-04-10 4:43 am Anonymous I have a new harddrive on the way, I think I might be giving this a try. 2002-04-10 3:19 pm Anonymous http://docs.freebsd.org/mail/current/freebsd-firewire.html You’re both incorrect, there is firewire for FreeBSD, and it even makes use of it’s clearly-defined-by-its-maintainers purpose. Firewire over IP is used if you need to go over the 4.5 meter limit of firewire cable. So not only is there regular firewire, but you get to send it over the Internet!
