FreeBSD Day 2
So far FreeBSD has been great! It's so easy to use. I got perl 5.8.5 working well with mysql 4.1. Tomorrow I'm gonna get apache working and maybe even Gnome If I'm really lucky.
Monday I take over the world.
Just for an example of how easy things are in FreeBSD... This is how I installed mysql.
# pkg_add -r mysql41
Of course it had to download the binary and configure itself. But man, MySQL starts on startup and everything. I didn't have to do anything besides change the root password.
And if I wanted to install from source.
# cd /usr/ports/databases/mysql41
# make install
This is so cool. And I am so not.
