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.
