Please describe your experiences with the freebsd-386 binary distribution, both positive
and negative, here. Thanks.

Comment 1:

I am currently unable to test the FreeBSD/386 binary distribution, but I would like to
see it provided in a FreeBSD native package tools format. This will make it easier for
people to install / upgrade in the future.

Comment 2:

Just tried on FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p3/i386 with following procedure:
1. untar ... ok
2. run go version ... ok
3. run go test -v -short ... ok
4. run go test -v ... two issues detected, filed as issue #3225 and issue #3226.

Comment 3:

FreeBSD FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE-p5 #11: Sat Dec 24 01:38:45 UTC 2011

untarred to ~/go, 
tested go version, go get, go install, executed sample programs from

webfonts > /home/public/webfonts.svg
bubtrail > /home/public/bubtrail.svg
svgdef > /home/public/svgdef.svg

test by visiting

all working as expected.

Comment 4:

Works on FreeBSD/386 -- the recipe:

01:38:45 UTC 2011     root@x3:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/NFSN32  i386
$ env | grep '^GO'
$ echo $PATH

$ wget ''  # fet
the binary package
$ rm -rf go # remove the old go tree
$ tar xzvof go.weekly.2012-03-13.freebsd-386.tar.gz  # untar
$ go version # check the 
go version weekly.2012-03-13
go install
ls -l $GOPATH/bin  # show newly build binaries
ls -l $GOPATH/pkg/freebsd_386/  # show updated library
$ flower > /home/public/flower.svg  # run a command

Comment 5:

weekly 2012-03-22,
