    Debian GNU/kNetBSD Sources


    Hey,
    I am after the Debian GNU/kNetBSD sources/ repositories; as the title suggests.

    Can anyone help me? I have been looking for the sources for the last few weeks, but i only seem to get pointed to the Debian ports page about the project which has long been abandoned.

    Probably doesn't help that it was abandoned in 2002, but surely the sources etc for the project do exist somewhere?

    Any help would be great

    I think you misunderstand...
    Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is the Debian GNU userland with the FreeBSD Kernel, which is still an active Debian port.

    Debian GNU/kNetBSD is the Debian GNU userland with the NetBSD Kernel, which is an abandoned Debian port since 2002.

    It is the source for the later which i am after, and if someone knows where i can find those sources it would be great

    Heh, thought it was your misunderstanding but turns out it's mine.

    Some thoughts...
    ask at Debian IRC on Freenode?
    Debian archive search? Debian Archive
    search/ask in the Debian mailing lists (eg: debian-bsd, debian-kernel)
    a note to one of the original devs?

    Good luck

    Yeah its always weird when you think someone is misunderstood but in actual fact it yourself.

    Thanks for the help though, didn't think of the Debian IRC

    They are the sources for Debian, but not for kNetBSD.

    It the Debian NetBSD project i am after not the FreeBSD project...

    Is there an archive of older releases and projects that have been abandoned/ discontinued, i am talking 2002 maybe even 2001.
