Subject: [gentoo-user] Can Portage be used with FreeBSD or NetBSD?
Date: Tue, 01 Jun 2021 09:59:53
1 Can Portage be used as a package manager with anything other than Linux?
3 I like some features of Portage; think it might be better than FreeBSD ports or NetBSD pkgsrc, or is just a case of the grass being greener on the other side?
5 I like the option "--with-bdeps=y", wish FreeBSD's synth and poudriere had that option.
7 But I don't want to use Portage where it would be incompatible.
9 Portage's assumption of location of python binary and /bin/bash are contrary to anything non-Linux, or even a Linux that uses another shell such as dash or mksh.
