Hi ... sorry to bother you ... I noticed your address(es) in certain readme
files and/or man pages.  I am trying ( with no success ) to run various 
"ported" FreeBSD-1.1 apps under Linux.  These files came with my 
slackware (Trans-AmeraTech(sp)) CD.  Some apps work ... most don't.  The 
common response when a run is attempted is :

Segmentation Fault

with no core file generated.  Tried to trace through with gdb and 
xxgdb ... gdb is no help.  xxgdb complains about some typewriter value ( 
have a feeling that is an xxgdb setting than a FreeBSD setting ... but, 
I could be wrong ).  The xtrek app ( with xtrekd ) is the app I have been 
trying to get to work for the longest time with no success. 

Here is the contents of my /cdrom/FreeBSD-1.1 directory :

The order is alphanumeric.

I know everyone is busy with real problems.  Being able to run ported 
apps under Linux would be great if possible.  If anything, the 
knowledge gained on just the "this is how you run a ported BSD app" 
would be worth its weight in gold!  Please respond soon ( 
hey! even a pointer to a certain FAQ or HOWTO would be great even ).

Thanks again for your time.

PS : (raw numbers)

"
CPU = 486DX2 / 66Mhz
OS = Linux Slackware 2.1.0 ( upgraded kernel 1.2.0 )
DASD = 16M (RAM), 32M (SWAP), ~470M (DISK)
X Client/Server = X11R5 2.1.1 ( I think?? )
"
If more numbers are needed, please reply! :)

Later

PPS : I was going to mail Dave Gagne and Mike Bolotski ( both from the
U of BC ), but I did not have time to track down e-mail address.  These
two individuals are responsible ( I think ) for the first version of xtrek.
