NetBSD 4.0: your experiences with binary / source pkgs?
[ I posted a similar query on the other forum just before it imploded, so this may sound familiar to some of you. ]
The situation is this:
Due to some issues I've run into installing binary packages (which I am not interested in discussing in this particular thread), I thought it would be a good idea if I solicited feedback from other NetBSD users.
My questions: Have you installed binary packages on NetBSD 4.0? If so, did you find the experience to be mostly trouble free?
I am asking this to try to determine whether binary packages are really a viable option, or if source packages are the way to go for things to work smoothly. (Either outcome is OK. I just want to know where I should be spending my time and energy.)
Any feedback gratefully received.
Kill your t.v.
