Moving to #Freebsd ?

I am thinking of moving my main server to FreeBSD. My main goal is to learn the OS. I have gotten so use to Debian and It seems like it is no longer a challenge to me. At least I think with #FreeBSD, I do not have to worry so much with upgrading. Right now, since I track Debian Unstable, I have to constantly update when I am in there. Also I also have to update the kernel. All of this I know are avoidable. I could just go with Debian stable and I could just choose to use the distro kernel and not have to worry with compiling the kernel.

Anyway, I think this would be a huge undertaking. I probably would have to plan this in stages. For one, how do I migrate without significant downtime???


FreeBSD upgrades


I am upgrading my one and only FreeBSD box. I don’t use FreeBSD much but I was thinking of installing LDAP and Kerberos on that  box. When I did the freebsd-update script I ran into some problems. It turns out I am missing some directories. I don’t know if this is a bug or this is purposely done to make us create our own directory. I guess I am spoiled by apt-get in Debian where everything happens automatically. I kinda like it because it forces me to learn. I am looking forward to more adventures in FreeBSD land!
