Hi there, i;m since thursday running FreeBSD besides my Linux. (They are
both gr& OS-es, I'm not going to play advocacy for either one of them).
However I have 2 small questions:
1 - How come when I compile a new kernel and I use the GENERIC conf file
and I throw out all of the hardware that I don't have nor need and
I only enable SMP (I run on SMP) that my kernel is over 8Megs while the
GENERIC kernel is only 2.4M (still very large when you check that agains
Linux kernels) I however made the kernel with the config -g options.
Perhaps the debug message make this binary so big. Or perhaps the
GENERIC kernel has everything in modules (I don't know how to make
modules yet :) and perhaps I have a monolitic kernel. Wich I would'nt
understand since I use the GENERIC config.
2 - Can FreeBSD run the BSD 4.4 binaries? Probably yes but I like to
here that for sure. And how good is the iBCS2 do all SCO apps run on
