I have reworked my msql package, based on the FreeBSD work (but why did they
called package a 'port' ??).
I have choosen different directories for some things, and I want your advice :
/usr/local/Hughes/msqldb Official distrib.
/var/db/msqldb FreeBSD port
/usr/pkg/msqldb my choice
/usr/local/Hughes Official distrib.
/usr/local/etc/msql2 FreeBSD port
/usr/pkg/etc my choice
/var/run/msql2d/pid my choice
/var/spool/sockets/msql2.sock my choice
Databases directory is changed in the FreeBSD port only with a lots of patches
in sources files. I don't want to do this, it's too much confusing.
One other thing: I need a user to own databases and to be used to run daemon
of the server. I choose 'ingres' because it exists, but maybe I must create a
new account (with a script ? examples ?).
Thanks for all your advices.
