Simply trying to install postgresql - the message I included is what the system prints out when installing from the ports collection.

While installing postgres I get the following:

You need to create the null device in your jailed Linux environment. Run this outside the jail, then press enter:

mkdir -m 0755 -p <Jail root dir>/dev
rm -f <Jail root dir>//compat/linux/dev/null
mknod <Jail root dir>//compat/linux/dev/null c 2 2
chmod 666 <Jail root dir>//compat/linux/dev/null

Do I HAVE to make a jail? I was just going to run the postgresql port on my FreeBSD box, sans-condom. The box only has one user and there are no security concerns to speak of.


PostgreSQL is available via the FreeBSD ports system. It does not require a jail or linux emulation.

What are you trying to do?
