Frequently Asked Questions
- Which architectures does LBSD support?
- Since 5.9, both
- Is LibertyBSD FSF-approved?
- We're going through the process to be approved as FSDG-compliant.
- So what about security updates?
- You can find patches here.
You can manually compile and apply the patches yourself, if you want.
Or you could use
syspatch. Whatever floats your boat.
- Where are the man pages?
- In 5.6, man-pages were excluded-- but since then, they've been
included by default. We've added on to them, even!
- Where can I contact you, or get some help?
- You can write to
/f/libertybsd at raddle.me
(you're certain to get a response there), the #libertybsd IRC channel at
irc.freenode.net (almost certain to get a response, if a tad delayed), or
/r/libertybsd at reddit.com
(unlikely to get a response there).
If it's a more private matter, you can e-mail Jaidyn .
- Cool, whatever. Where's the sauce, mate?
- You can find the patched source-code in your local FTP/HTTP
mirror under 'src.tar.gz', 'sys.tar.gz', and 'xenocara.tar.gz'. If you want
the scripts used to patch it, you'll find those over at
the git repo."
- Aha! I've foudn something non-free in LibertyBSD!
- Impressive eyes you've got there!
Contact us right away, please!
(According to me, you deserve a GNU buck. ;))
- I have a problem with LBSD. Can I use the OpenBSD mailing list?
- You really shouldn't! LibertyBSD might be a simple downstream,
but it does have modifications-- so you shouldn't report bugs unless
replicated in OpenBSD, or ask for help. Don't bother them, please! Instead,
bother us. We'll help you the best we can. ;)
- Where's the ports tree? Package repo?
- They're in your mirror's directory for your version-- under
'packages' for the repo, and 'ports.tar.gz' for the ports tree. (The ports
tree and repo are pure and squeaky-clean, by the way~)
