AW: Re: Linux system to use pkgsrc?
> pkgsrc on Linux?
You may take a look at Gentoo Linux
as i remember guys who are still using pkgsrc on Gentoo (however).
The Gentoo linux distribution does many things similiar to the *BSDs (i.e.
provides install from sources very easily) and the "portage" system in many
ways is that what "ports" or "pkgsrc" provides.
Additionally Gentoo is highly configurable / adaptable within the filesys
"geography" and it easily allows to run different package / port managements on
the same system (i.e. you can bring pkgsrc in /usr/local or other own prefix).
So it might be a good chioce for your needs here. Just check it out...
I assume even other *BSDish geeks would be happen with Gentoo if they - however
- require Linux.
