Devuan kFreeBSD

Do you remember the "Debian GNU/kFreeBSD" project? It was closed for lack of volunteers but I think it was a great idea.

It would be fantastic if Devuan could inherit and revive this project!

Devuan GNU/kFreeBSD just the name rocks!

we need a build environment.. currently only OBS provide this for persoinal test, the devuan build ci system forces people to follo devuan rules and in that way we cannot test property .. with OBS people can play with the package until get something refined and tuned! like my php fixed pacakges without shitstemd

Re: Devuan kFreeBSD

These projects died.
Gentoo's experiments with BSD kernels are fossiled history too.

Maybe digging out the last Debian/kFreeBSD and slowly upgrading from that status quo would work?

Didn't find newer references in my currently undercaffeinated attention span.

Re: Devuan kFreeBSD

The wiki said it was been just a technical preview however it had been the only, working, alternative kernel available for Debian...

Re: Devuan kFreeBSD

I don't remember the timeline good enough, but there was a very unfinished Debian/kNetBSD too, plans for Debian/kOpenBSD, and there still is Debian/(k?)Hurd.

"Debian, the universal OS" ... is this subtitle still in use?

The de facto (k?)Linux monoculture this world is aimimg at is a danger!

That is actually the point, but this is not Linux monoculture, is Red Hat monoculture. I am totally fine with corporate shaping Linux the way they need with their distro, but it is disappointing when all the distros must follow its lead because it wants all the support available to develop and reduce the cost of the products of its portfolio, doesn't matter it is still free software. You kill free software when is developed with corporate mindset.

Re: Devuan kFreeBSD

Don't forget the influence these big players have on the kernel.
That affects all Linux based systems.
