Jigdo freebsd port


I would like to know if it's possible to use Jigdo freebsd port on my Mac OS X 10.2.5 install on my eMac 700 G4, mine is one of the ones equipped with the combo cdrw/dvd-rom drives and I would like to use it to burn a 68k Mac Debian 3.0 disc set. I know this is the wrong forum, but while on the topic of Debian which of the 6 iso images do I really need to get up and running and which are optional?

In case it happens to matter if I need to use the root account I've already enabled it so it's ready just in case and since I'm the only user I'm the adminastrator.

Well, I must say I have absolutely no idea! You should definitely try it out, and although I don't really know about the limitations of Mac OS X, you might be able to install the windows one through wine, or some mac windows emulator.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help,
Andrew

The FreeBSD port wont't help - the FreeBSD ports system only runs on FreeBSD. If you download the source tarball it might build on OSX.

Thanks llama_meme, but I'm still very much a newbie to *nixes in general and was wondering what commands I should use from terminal to build the Jigdo source. Any thought's on this?

It will probably be the usual:

./configure
gmake
gmake install

routine. But there should be an INSTALL or README file in the tarball with more detailed instructions.

I already tried ./configure, but it won't run. I think Apple's Mac OS X may not have some command line tool necessary for compiling software from source. Could you think of any packages I might need that I wouldn't already have?

The error said: ./confiigure: Command not found. The jigdo readme also says I should run ./configure without gui and make for some reason unknown to me.

That's strange because the ./configure command should come with the souece tarball - it's not an OS command.

I'm starting to think it may just a compatibility reason beyond us.

silly question. Did you unzip and untar the source cd to the dir before running ./configure? and if gmake && gmake install don't work try make and make install.

Just btw, the reason I say gmake rather than plain old make is that the BSDs have their own (non-GNU) make installed as 'make', and you have to use 'gmake' to get GNU make. Which one Apple has installed as 'make' by default I'm not sure.

All I know is I typed ./configure and got the previously mentioned error. Oh and btw the way I got the source was from a tarball. If I'm supposed to type something other than just ./configure like maybe ./configure jigdo then maybe that's what I did wrong. You know, if you guys want to know more about Darwin there is a basic package that only includes Darwin for x86 if you're feeling ambitious and want to investigate it further. I feel that may be the best way to do this so everyone around here knows more about Darwin and Mac OS X anyways as I bet we'll have more questions related to the two in the future.

Oh, btw since this thread was originally created I'm now running Mac OS X 10.2.6 (I don't know if it affects the freebsd underpinnings, but better to be safe than sorry) as that may change the state of things a little.
