The Linux+FreeBSD mini-HOWTO

Niels Kristian Bech Jensen nkbj@image.dk

v1.11, 30 March 2000

This document describes how to use Linux and FreeBSD on the same system. It introduces FreeBSD and discusses how the two operating systems can cooperate, e.g. by sharing swap space. You should probably have some experience with Linux or FreeBSD and hard drive partitioning (fdisk) before you read this document. The tips herein are tested using FreeBSD 2.2.2, but they should be valid for newer versions as well. Do not hesitate to mail me if you have comments, questions or suggestions about this document. I would also like to hear from people who have experience using Linux together with NetBSD or OpenBSD.

1. What is FreeBSD?

2. The FreeBSD way of labelling hard drives

3. Sharing swap space between Linux and FreeBSD

4. Booting FreeBSD using LILO

5. Mounting filesystems

6. Running foreign binaries

7. Information resources

8. Credits and legal stuff
