comment How do I get the MD5 sum of a directory's contents as one sum?
@WarrenYoung it was perfectly fine for traditional find, gnu find however does not seem to have the -s flag. Thus, there should be two answers, I think. Also, on non-GNU systems it is md5 instead of md5sum. Thus, GNU: find somedir -type f -exec md5sum {} \; | LC_ALL=C sort | md5sum, other Unices: LC_ALL=C find -s somedir -type f -exec md5 {} \; | md5

@Gilles, I just noted that GNU find indeed does not, I am on FreeBSD, where it does according to the manpage.

@Gilles this can be fixed by setting LC_ALL=c before executing the command for consistency.

@RolandSmith Does that already work? I understood it did not as of the sysinstall situation, but great!

comment What distributions have rolling releases?
than it is certainly true for those FreeBSD branches, given that FreeBSD does not contain non-base packages, whereas a Linux distro does. So, you are really following a source branch of the "base" system, to translate it to Linux terms.

Should development releases such as Debian Sid or FreeBSD Stable and Current be considered as rolling releases too?

comment Installing FreeBSD without removable media from CentOS 6
It is possible to install FreeBSD without installer: daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=1538. This process is different since 9.x, so be sure to have a guide for the correct version.

comment Which BSD to start with?
One should note that PCBSD is the odd one out when it comes to packaging, since it focusses on binary packages with full dependencies for ease of installation, as opposed to the ports trees in typical BSD's. (Although, since PCBSD is built on top of FreeBSD, their ports are reachable.)
