I have mostly ported GNUstep to DragonFly, I just need to submit patches now for both GNUstep and DragonFly. To know more, you can contact me. Quentin Mathé
You can install GNUstep using the /usr/ports/devel/gnustep meta-port. However, not all required dependencies seem to get installed.
If you install the following in advance, you should be fine: wmaker, libxml2, libxslt, libgmp4, libart_lgpl2, libaudiofile, portaudio, ffcall, glitz. A complete list of dependencies can be found here.
Additionally, you may also want to install mDNSResponder.
Note : Prior to FreeBSD-6.0, there is a bug in kvm(3) that requires a mounted /proc for GNUstep to work properly. Until this bug is fixed, make sure you have an entry for /proc in your /etc/fstab:
proc /proc procfs rw 0 0

It was reported that this runs GNUstep as well. For more details see the topic of the IRC channel #gnu-kbsd on irc.gnu.org
FreeSBIE is a Live-CD Version of FreeBSD.
MidnightBSD is based on FreeBSD 6.1 pre-release. The goal of the project is to create a BSD with ease of use and simplicity in mind.
The most intriguing thing about MidnightBSD is their integration of GNUstep into the system.
Installing GNUstep from pkgsrc is really straight-forward for NetBSD if you're using a recent pkgsrc distribution. NetBSD/i386 has no known problems right now, however there are reports of crashout problems for gdomap on NetBSD/sparc which may be related to ffi/ffcall issues.
In terms of pre-requisites, ensure you've got a working X11 environment on your system and preferrably are using WindowMaker as your window manager.
To install GNUstep, you need to cd to your pkgsrc tree and then cd to the right package directory, on my system:
then go to the package you wish to install, for example:
and issue the command:
This command will download source code and whatever dependencies and compile and install them. The version of the meta-packages I used (released with NetBSD 2.0 and called gnustep-1.10.0nb2) installs the following GNUstep components as parts of the meta-package:
A number of dependency packages are also installed.
This may be overkill - if you don't need all the applications etc, you can install the packages individually.
