GIMP 2.8.0 in FreeBSD Jail example


I've been wanting to check out Gimp 2.8 since I read the news release, and finally took some time to build it on my machine. It is not certain when the FreeBSD packages and ports will be updated and tested and published. There have been some people who have built it by updating their system packages, but I decided to build it in a jail chroot to avoid possibly royally dorking up my system. It runs through a 'remote' connection to Xorg server (same machine). However I do want to spend some more time investigating ways to safely 'break it out of jail'. ;-)

If you are interested in trying my alternate setup on your FreeBSD machine I have written some basic instructions at the following URL.

Have a great weekend.
