Trouble: cant do anything

2003-10-29 Thread Carvalho Paulo
  Hi,
  I kind of newbie to freebsd, so go easy on me.
  First of all I was having troable to install version
5.1 on my machine, but then i finaly got it (or at
list I thought so). When I boot the system it asks me
to write the path of my shell, and since I don't have
any installed I just press ENTER. Then I try to create
a file and the system says that it's a read only file
system. How do I enter the normal system? 
  Thats is just one of my problems, I will send more
questians later...
  Thank you.

Your system isn't booting up all the way to multiuser mode.  Instead,
it's stopping at single user mode.  This is generally an indication
that something is wrong with one of the very low-level parts of the
system (generally the filesystem), and you're being left in single
user mode to give you a chance to fix the problems.

Try the following commands:

# fsck -p
# swapon -a 
# mount -a

The fsck command may or may not burble about checking file systems,
but it should eventually tell you that the file systems are clean.
The other commands should run without emitting any errors.  If they do
print out anything untoward, copy it down and send it to this list and
someone should be able to advise you how to fix things.

Once you've successfully got past that step, your file systems will be
mounted read-write and you will be able to edit files as necessary to
cure the problem that stopped you booting up properly the first time.

Once you're satisfied with that, just type 'exit' to get out of single
user mode, and the system should carry on booting up to multiuser
mode.  Once you see the 'Login:' prompt, you might permit yourself a
little jig of triump, as you've successfully booted up.

Cheers,

Matthew

IDE card reader

2003-10-29 Thread David Lodeiro
Hi all, 

I have an IDE card reader ( compact flash, secure digital, MMC, and memory 
stick) that I am trying to get to work. However when I start my system with 
it installed it crashes on boot up. 

This is what it outputs

Fatal trap 12: page fault while in kernel mode
fault virual address= 0x4b
fault code  = supervisor write, page not present
instruction pointer = 0x8:0xc03558bc
stack pointer   = 0x10:0xd6aa6c 54
frame pointer   = 0x10:0xd6aa6c 58
code segment= base 0x0, limit 0xf, type 0x1b
= DPL 0, pres 1, def32 1, gram 1
processor eflags= interrupt enabled, resume, IOPL=0
current process = 24 (irq15: ata1)
trap number = 12
panic: page fault

and it then gives the option to pause or reeboot.

If I boot up with a SD card in the reader, I get the exact same message, but 
with the following just before it:

afd0: MODE_SENSE_BIG - ILLEGAL REQUEST asc=0x24 ascq=0x00 error=0x04

and it repeats this 4 times

If anyone can give me any info, explanation as to what is happenening, a link 
to another site, anything, please let me know

Thanks in advance

Hi

I don't see the Adaptec 2120S Raid card in the Hardware.TXT file but I see
in some mailing list there are some question for this raid card.

My question is : This card work or not in FreeBSD 4.X (even 4.9 I can
wait), but I don't want to use FreeBSD 5.1 for this server because It's in
production for many pepoels.

Thanks for advanced.

Re: Log every access to a file

  How do you create/add a system log to monitor every access to a specific file (say 
  a database file accessed through samba)? A sample line for syslog.conf would be 
  greatly appreciated ?? :-)
 
 Samba has extensive logging capabilities itself -- which generally
 bypass syslog entirely, although there are options available to use
 syslog.  It will certainly log who is accessing the server and from
 what machines.  I don't think it has the capability to monitor
 accesses down to the level of a particular file though, but read the
 manuals carefully to be sure.
 
 If you really need to log all accesses to the file, then probably your
 best bet is to only make the file available via a web interface, which
 can be set to require passwords before it will allow access and will
 supply the logs you require.  Alternatively, databases such as
 postgres or mysql can keep detailed logs of all queries run against
 them.  
Actually, there are two options that will allow you to monitor accesses
of any particular file.

The first is to periodically stat that file. This is incredibly simple
to do. The disadvantage is that if the file is being accessed very
often, you may miss some accesses (if you're checking every second, and
two people access in the same second, you'll only see one access); if
the file is being accessed very rarely, it's a bit of a waste of cpu and
disk time to keep checking it. But, nonetheless, this is sometimes the
best way to go.

I've attached a script statlog.py (requires python 2.3) that will do it
for you. It read a list of filenames (one per line) from
/usr/local/etc/statlog.conf, and begins monitoring each one, and outputs
to /var/log/statlog.log any time there's been a change to A/M/C time. By
default, it checks once/second, but you can change this with the -f flag
(./statlog -f 5 means five times/second, ./statlog -f 0.5 means
every two seconds, ./statlog -f 0 means as often as you can--which
you probably only want to use in conjunction with nice or idprio_.

The second is to use fam. I should mention that I've only used fam under
linux, and, after a brief glance, it looks like the FreeBSD port
(/usr/ports/devel/fam) is not as powerful--in particular, FreeBSD
apparently doesn't provide imon support (a way for the filesystem to
make a callback to a usermode app like fam--no dnotify or anything
similar, either, apparently). Which implies that it's probably just a
heavier-weight way of doing the exact same thing--periodically stat'ing
a list of files--and that there is no better solution available.

But I could be wrong, and it's probably worth testing to see if it works
better for you. Also, if the files are stored on nfs-mounted drives (and
this may be true for smb also, but I don't know), and the nfs server is
running fam, the checks are passed off to the server, which makes them
faster (and, if the server is running linux or another imon-capable OS,
gets around the worries mentioned above).

You should have no problem getting fam itself working if you follow the
instructions in the message you get when installing the port/package.

Anyway, the second script, famlog.py, is a slightly-modified version of
a script that I've used for a similar purpose in linux. It reads the
filenames in /usr/local/etc/famlog.conf, tells fam to monitor all of
those files, and sends its output to /var/log/famlog.log. 

If either of these is useful to me, let me know. If you need help
automating stuff (making an rc.d/famlog.sh wrapper, and maybe a
logrotater), modifying either script to use syslog instead of its own
log file (should be a one-line change), etc., just ask. 

(NOTE: The attachments are scrubbed from the copy of this message sent

Check the kevent(2) man page.  It's a generic mechanism for having the
kernel message your process when some condition occurs, such as
modification of a file.  Unfortunately other than knowing something
happened, it doesn't tell you a great deal else, like who it was that
made the alteration.

Even so, fam(1) has apparently not been patched to use kevent(2) under
FreeBSD, so, yes, it's probably going to operate by polling the file
status every so often.

Matthew

I have a freebsd 4.4.1 workstation on my LAN
configured to obtain it's IP address through DHCP. The
proxy server is a Microsoft Proxy Server and it will
not allow the freebsd machine to access the Internet.
Only windows workstations are able to connect to the
Internet. In all the documentation that I have read on
PPPoE it explains how to connect to ADSL or ATM
through a second nic. Surely bsd will connect to the
outside world just by knowing the gateway address? Do
I have to still configure ppp.conf and if so what do I
put in it? If somebody could just point me towards
some documentation I'd be most grateful.
Thank you.

i would like to change the colors of the shell to FG=green BG=black. I do
_not_ ask how to change the promt, i rather want to change the default FG BG
colors, so that with whatever program (be it Konsole, putty, ssh.org, ...) i

these colors in the clients itself, however this is not what i want.

Where do i set them up? Thank you!

run XFree86 at 512x384

2003-10-29 Thread Zhang Weiwu
Hello. I'm running FreeBSD 5.1 on Thinkpad 600X -- my old Pentium 500MHz 
notebook with neomagic at XGA resolution.

My CPU isn't fast enough to view some divx movie in enlarged mode, but 
the movies looks bad just in a small window. I wish I can setup the 
XFree86 server to run at 512x384 resolution, which is very close to my 
movies' size. I know it can be totally impossible. I just want to try my 
luck here if someone knows right about it:)

I remember I played games at 512x384 several years ago on a PII Windows 
PC, so this seems to be a reachable resolution on some cards. However I 
don't have knowledge if my neomagic card support it, neither do I know 
where to look for the supported resolutions. Of course I can use VGA 
resolution, but VGA looks bad, because on LCD: some pixels are stretched 
to two, some stretched to three. If I can use 512x384 then every pixel 
is stretched to four, which would look better.

Do I need to add a modeline to the XF86Config? What about ModeLine 
parameters?

Besides, if 512x384 is possible, I can play NEO*GEO arcade games with 
xmame smoothly. I will love it.

Thank you.

Drive Geometry -- confusion.

2003-10-29 Thread nw1
FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE-p13
This document can also be viewed @ https://69.3.136.141/freebsd/installation/geometry

Install 4.8 from CD-rom

Drive Geometry confusion.
My BIOS allows me a very limited amount of settings when it comes to an HDD.
The following are the only settings offered by my BIOS:

Read Prefetch - [Disabled | Enabled] - set to (Disabled)
Disk Bios Translation - [LBA | CHS | Disabled] - set to (LBA)
Local Bus IDE Mode - [High Performance | Compatible] - set to (High Performance)

Size - 8455 MB --Auto-detected-- This is actually an 80GB HDD model: WD800JB.
(Unable to change the 'Size' setting.)

The only other setting that could remotely be associated with any HDD's
installed would be the 'boot order' of the devices.

... sysinstall main menu | Custom | Partition :

Here's where I'm confused;  The following dialog message is printed:

WARNING: A geometry of 155061/16/63 for ad0 is incorrect.  Using a more likely
geometry.  If this geometry is incorrect or you are unsure as to whether or not
it's correct, Please consult the Hardware Guide in the Documentation submenu or
use the (G)eometry command to change it now.

Remember: you need to enter whatever your BIOS thinks the geometry is!  For IDE,
it's what you were told in the BIOS setup.  For SCSI, its the translation mode
your controller is using.  Do NOT use a physical Geometry.

## With the above two (2) paragraphs having been said,  All I have at this point
is the physical geometry given by the WD800JB specs --which the above
paragraphs are currently fobbing me to use.

Lets press enter for OK and move further into this...

We're in the FDISK Partition Editor where it states on the second line from the
top: DISK Geometry: 9729 cyls/255 heads/63 sectors = 156296385 sectors (76316MB)

If I understand correctly, the physical geometry of this WD800JB is:

Cylinders = 16383  
Heads = 16 
Sectors/Track = 63 

As seen on/at: The Westerndigital.com site.
http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=699p_cr
eated=1037217622

I'm inclined to use the above three (3) values, however, The above FreeBSD
installation 'dialog' expressly *forbids the use of the physical geometry.
Is this not confusing to you as well?

Why does the installation forbid us to use the 'physical geometry? --I'm sure
there's a valid reason, I'd like to hear it.

Can someone explain what to do and, for future reference, -- *why do that?

As stated above; I'm confused.

I may be wrong because it been a while for me to make changes, but you 
need to edit your  .profile  for the system . Here you can set it up. 
You can even set it up where fortune, mot, or any other programs you

you can also set path up her at well.

You will need to set an ansi color.

Do a search on google for .profile you might find examples.

arplookup 192.168.0.1 failed: host is not on local network confusion

2003-10-29 Thread lists
Hi,

In my server, I have three ethernet cards: xl0, xl1 and vx0. xl0 and xl1
are bridged and one of them is connected to my ethernet switch, the other
to my wireless acess point. xl0 has an IP address of 192.168.1.1.

vx0 is connected to my ADSL modem. My ADSL modem (D-Link ADSL 300G+)
insists on using an IP address of 192.168.1.0, but via DHCP it hands vx0
one of the IP addresses in the /29 that I have from my ADSL provider.

In dmesg I often see: arplookup 192.168.0.1 failed: host is not on local
network

Now obviously 192.168.0.1 isn't on the same network as xl0's 192.168.1.1
since xl0 has a netmask of 0xf00.

But what is causing this message? Something I read suggested dhcpd, which
I have handing out IP addresses on 192.168.1.0/24, but I don't see why.

I am aware that this has been discussed before, but I can't see anything
misconfigured, and while this is only a minor annoyance I would quite like
to get it fixed.

ifconfig looks like this:

xl0: flags=8943UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST mtu 1500

 Subject: Drive Geometry -- confusion.


 FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE-p13
 This document can also be viewed @

 Install 4.8 from CD-rom

 Drive Geometry confusion.
 My BIOS allows me a very limited amount of settings when it comes
 to an HDD.
 The following are the only settings offered by my BIOS:

 Read Prefetch - [Disabled | Enabled] - set to (Disabled)
 Disk Bios Translation - [LBA | CHS | Disabled] - set to (LBA)
 Local Bus IDE Mode - [High Performance | Compatible] - set to
 (High Performance)

 Size - 8455 MB --Auto-detected-- This is actually an 80GB HDD
 model: WD800JB.
 (Unable to change the 'Size' setting.)

 The only other setting that could remotely be associated with any HDD's
 installed would be the 'boot order' of the devices.

 ... sysinstall main menu | Custom | Partition :

 Here's where I'm confused;  The following dialog message is printed:

 WARNING: A geometry of 155061/16/63 for ad0 is incorrect.  Using
 a more likely
 geometry.  If this geometry is incorrect or you are unsure as to
 whether or not
 it's correct, Please consult the Hardware Guide in the
 Documentation submenu or
 use the (G)eometry command to change it now.

 Remember: you need to enter whatever your BIOS thinks the
 geometry is!  For IDE,
 it's what you were told in the BIOS setup.  For SCSI, its the
 translation mode
 your controller is using.  Do NOT use a physical Geometry.

 ## With the above two (2) paragraphs having been said,  All I
 have at this point
 is the physical geometry given by the WD800JB specs --which the above
 paragraphs are currently fobbing me to use.

 Lets press enter for OK and move further into this...

 We're in the FDISK Partition Editor where it states on the second
 line from the
 top: DISK Geometry: 9729 cyls/255 heads/63 sectors = 156296385
 sectors (76316MB)

 If I understand correctly, the physical geometry of this WD800JB is:

 Cylinders = 16383
 Heads = 16
 Sectors/Track = 63

 As seen on/at: The Westerndigital.com site.
 http://wdc.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/wdc.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_
faqid=699p_cr
eated=1037217622

I'm inclined to use the above three (3) values, however, The above FreeBSD
installation 'dialog' expressly *forbids the use of the physical geometry.
Is this not confusing to you as well?

Why does the installation forbid us to use the 'physical geometry? --I'm
sure
there's a valid reason, I'd like to hear it.

Can someone explain what to do and, for future reference, -- *why do that?

As stated above; I'm confused.

  Well, I've got my 120G disk up and running and
 now I'd like to understand something odd.

  I went into /stand/sysinstall to put down the
 partition and slice tables and the FS and found that
 it determined the geometry (cyl/head/sectors) as
 15107/255/63 .  Since it warned that the values must
 match the BIOS values, I set them to the 59131/16/255
 that the BIOS reports.  It rejected this entry and
 went back to its own.  I also tried the values
 reported
 by the ata driver on startup; these too were rejected.

  Since it's working (with about 117G -- that's
 Gi_b_abytes) it must be OK (famous last words!) but
 what's going on here?  Why does it demand the values
 reported by the BIOS if it will refuse them, and why
 does the driver come up with another set of values,
 also unacceptible to the disklabel/fdisk machinery?


I expect that most people reading this are aware of some of the
limitations of BIOS disk addressing, including the physical disk
addresses in the disk partition table in the MBR (master bootstrap
record) of bootable PC disk drives which allocates only 10 bits for
the cylinder number, 8 bits for the head number, and 6 bits for the
sector number.  There is also a Fixed Disk Drive Parameter Table
available through the traditional BIOS.  The table format allocates
16 bits for the number of cylinders, 8 bits for the number of heads,
and 8 bits for the number of sectors per track.  Since BIOS sector
numbers begin at one (not zero), the BIOS addressing limitations are
usually given as 1024 cylinders, 255 heads, and 63 sectors per track.
(Note: 1024*255*63 sectors is just under 8GB.)

The ATA/IDE specifications limit you to 65535 cylinders, 16 heads,
and 255 sectors per track (see http://www.t13.org).  If you accept
both sets of limitations at once, you get a maximum of 1024

 this is the source of the bh errors.  I will disable this command and see

 Is there a way to do this is PostFix or is this done automatically?

The correct way to do this is with the configuration lines I gave in
the previous message.  The one causing the error you see in the log is
the first of those configuration lines.  

Modifying the periodic scripts directly will work too, but you'll need
to keep merging your changes as you update the system, so it's a less
recommended approach.

 If I understand correctly, the physical geometry of this WD800JB is:

 Cylinders = 16383
 Heads = 16
 Sectors/Track = 63

A simple calculation from these figures gives a total capacity of about 8.4Gb.
In no way are these figures real (or even equivalent) for an 80Gb drive. The 
problem is that the hardware/software does not have the bit capacity to 
recognise more than 16383 cylinders. The 80Gb corresponds roughly with the 
155061/16/63 figure.

In fact modern drives at the disk hardware level expect simple absolute sector 
number for addressing not CHS, and in fact there may be different numbers of 
sectors to a track dependent on its diameter. So the 155061/16/63 figures are 
only some sort of equivalent CHS used in translating CHS addresses to 
absolute sector numbers. In principle you could pretend the CHS geometry was 
almost anything you want so long as it allows translation of hypothetical CHS 
addreses to real absolute sector addresses.

The catch comes in the limitations of the bios/software/hardware registers to 
hold the CHS quantities. Using maxima for heads (255) and sectors (63) keeps 
the number of cylinders to a realisable value. Hence 9729/255/63 looks like 
the right choice.

4.8 on i386

2003-10-29 Thread support
Hello,
Are there issues with trying to install 4.8 on i386 machines? I've tried 
upgrading from 4.2 on ISO cd to using the FTP site directly, even tried 
a clean install from the ISO but the istall continues to fall apart while 
retrieving anything with the Xserver and the binary itself. I just, this 
AM, used the FTP direct upgrade (thinking my ISO burn was faulty), 
skipped through the Xserve stuff that failed and allegedly did a 
successful upgrade. On reboot I get:

booting(kernel)...
can't load 'kernel'
can't load 'kernel.old'
no bootable kernel
ok

I have a Mylex 760 raid card, is this the impediment? The 4.2 is 
successful without a hitch. I have an AMI 3.0 bios, a Super p6dgs/dbs 
motherboard. I've downloaded the ISO from different FTP sites and 
still get the same result from ISO install attempts. Any words for the 
unwise here?

thanks,

Dan

I won't call you unwise, but it's a lng way from 4.2
to 4.8.  If you've still got a 4.2 world and a 4.2 kernel, I'd
try to use cvsup/makebuildworld/../../../mergemaster (etc.)
to get to 4.4, then 4.6, then 4.8 or 4.9..
Can you explain the phrase FTP direct upgrade a little

afbackup keeps ejecting tapes

2003-10-29 Thread Noah

afbackup-3.3.5


Hi,

okay I am having a difficult time here. I must be misunderstainding something.
I have one tape drive and two clients. one of the client machines dis also the
server which has a single tape drive attached to it. the tape drive handles
only one cartridge at a time. I am rotating backups between 3 separate
cartridges. each weekly backup should be able to fit on one tape only since
the tapes are 50GB each.

I have already used these tapes for backup. The tape recently rotated.and as
soon as the tape was inserted I received mail to run the cartready program and
did that.

then afbackup ejects the tape from the drive and sends me the following message:

The device /dev/sa0 on host hostname.domain.com is not ready for use. You are
requested to check the device for possible errors and to correct them.

Best regards from your backup service. 

do I need to do more then cartready? Am I missing a step to rewind the tape?

Any ideas here

thanks,

Noah

first of all, I use mostly innodb tables, and secondly, and besides, there

Help with incorrect received date on microsoft clients

2003-10-29 Thread Leon Botes
System is freebsd 4.7 with up to date sources.
Mailer is exim 4.24 with mysql
Pop3 server is TPOP3D 1.5.2

System was exim 4.10 and tpop3d 1.4.2 before upgrade

After upgrade of exim and tpop3d clients using outlook or outlook express
with versions less than 5.5 have the received date of all emails showing 4th
October 2001.
The mail is received by exim and dropped correctly into the users mailbox.
Viewing the mailbox file contents shows no reference to this date only
correct date headers.
So telnet into the pop server and view the mail - no reference to this
incorrect date and all headers correct. Yet when the client draws the mail
through their mail client with version prior to 5.5 the received dates are
incorrect. Only the time varies.
To fix the problem is simple upgrade the few hundred clients to explorer 5.5
or above - right.
Any had this or got ANY suggestions. Amavis is running on the server but it
does the same even if i remove amavis from the exim configure file.
By the way it does it on both our servers on separate networks after they
were upgraded.

Please help.

rxvt: backspace won't work?

Hello. I just have rxvt installed and working.

The problem now is that when I am in vi, in the input mode (press 'a' or 
'i' to enter input mode), if I press the backspace, a '\?' is resulted 
instead of deleting the character befor cursor. This also happens when I 
use less(3), when I search something with '/' the searched text cannot 
be backspace-deleted.

In the meantime xterm works fine, everything behavior just like in the 
real console.

Did I missed some thing in Xresource?

Thank you. I am running fluxbox/FreeBSD 5.1 on thinkpad 600XD.

could you not have a cron job which stops the process at a certain time,
then
starts it back up at another time?

e.g. in '/etc/crontab' add the following

*TAB18TAB*TAB*TAB*TABuser_to_perform_action_such_as_rootTAB/path
/to/tacacs/stop-script
*TAB6TAB*TAB*TAB*TABuser_to_perform_action_such_as_rootTAB/path/
to/tacacs/start-script

replacing TAB with tabs

so it'll stop at 18 hours (6pm) and start at 6am

 No clue what TACACS+ is, but if it involves the network you may want to
look
 into ipfw and then setting up a cron job.

http://www.easynet.de/tacacs-faq/tacacs-faq-2.html

snip
What is TACACS, XTACACS, TACACS+, RADIUS?
All of them are protocols which allow a network access server (NAS, for
example a
Cisco 2511 or a 5300) to offload the user administation to a central server.
There
are now three versions of an authentication protocol that people commonly
refer to
as TACACS, which is as acronym for Terminal Access Controller Access
Control

Screen eating all CPU

2003-10-29 Thread Johan Paul
Hi all!

I was just wondering what could be wrong with my screen. Just like many
other I would like to have it for IRC over SSH.

I installed screen on my 4.8 normally using pkg_add -r screen. I update
the ports tree with cvsup on regular basis and the version that got
installed was screen-3.9.13.

As soon as I start screen for a normal user the load starts to rise.
Slowly, but it will reach 1.00. I have run screen under Linux for serveral
years without problems - what could have I missed?



Best regards,

 Check the kevent(2) man page.  It's a generic mechanism for having the
 kernel message your process when some condition occurs, such as
 modification of a file.  Unfortunately other than knowing something
 happened, it doesn't tell you a great deal else, like who it was that

And for a way to easily use this facility from shell scripts, check out
sysutils/wait_on, in the ports tree.

Confused about perl versions and perl modules

2003-10-29 Thread Jim Hatfield
I'd love to understand the interaction between perl versions,
FreeBSD versions and perl modules.

Frinstance I have a 4.7 system with only the base system perl,
and a number of perl modules from the ports collection.

The perl modules seem to install themselves under
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/ and put the man
pages under /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.00503/man.

Would this be different if I had perl 5.6 from ports installed
and had done a use.perl port before installing them???

I note that on a 5.1 system under /usr/local/lib/perl5 there
is both 5.00503 and 5.6.1 and site_perl and under site_perl
there is 5.005 and 5.6.1. This seems kind of surprising given
5.x doesn't have a base system perl and the ports version is 5.6.

I guess the real question is, if I move from base to ports version,
do I have to uninstall and reinstall all the modules from ports?

 I won't call you unwise, but it's a lng way from 4.2
 to 4.8.  If you've still got a 4.2 world and a 4.2 kernel, I'd
 try to use cvsup/makebuildworld/../../../mergemaster (etc.)
 to get to 4.4, then 4.6, then 4.8 or 4.9..
 
 Can you explain the phrase FTP direct upgrade a little
 more clearly?  Do you mean using /stand/sysinstall?

Will CVS let me pull in a revision between two existing ones?

2003-10-29 Thread Doug Lee
I'm finally setting up a CVS repository for work we do at my company,
and after piling through cvs.info and bouncing around in cvs(1) and
through a number of CVS-related web sites, I think I've found answers
to all of my questions but one:

Can I import (or otherwise pull in) a revision of sources that is
chronologically between two revisions already in the repository?

The reason I want to do this is that we have source files embedded in
projects which sprang from, eventually returned to, but are not
identical to any revision in our local library of code modules.
Example of development cycle:  While working on a project, a code file
I'll call file1 is written.  It becomes useful in some similar form in
several projects, so we take the time to write a generic version and
put it in the code library.  Sometime later, while working on another
project, I find I have to update it within that project.  The update
turns out to be useful elsewhere, so it later gets merged by hand back
into the library.  (Yes, I know...this whole scenario is the whole
purpose of systems like CVS; but of all the things CVS can do, time
regression (so I can have managed all this right the first time) isn't
one of them.)

If I can indeed slip a mid-way revision in somehow, I can start
building the repository immediately; otherwise, I fear I'll have to do
a massive file organization first to line up all the revisions of
individual files.  In the docs, I saw a (dangerous but possible) way
to remove a mid-way revision, but not a way to make one.  I'm up for
editing repository files if I must for this, but I want the final
result to look like I committed the revisions in chronological order.
Due to the way CVS numbers revisions, I doubt what I want can be done,
at least without a major repository overhaul; but I figure it won't
hurt to ask anyway.

Thanks for any help.

Problem with date...

Re: Screen eating all CPU

2003-10-29 Thread Johan Paul
 I installed screen on my 4.8 normally using pkg_add -r screen. I update
 the ports tree with cvsup on regular basis and the version that got
 installed was screen-3.9.13.
 Its a known bug. Install screen from the compiled ports and it will all
 be fine

Great, thanks - it worked! Now it doesn't eat all my CPU which is nice.

But I have another problem related to screen. That is when I start screen
my terminal emulation gets messed up. For example if a hit backspace or
delete I get a ~ and the bell and my left- and right arrows doesn't work.
This hasn't either happend to me under Linux. What could cause this and
where can I controll the terminal emulation...? This happens to me with
both tcsh and bash - if it has anything to do with the problem...

Thanks again!

You can produce the date formatted as you wish but for 1 day ago by:

% date -v-1d +%v

It's also a good tip when dealing with files with a datestamp in their
name if you use a format more like:

% date +%Y-%M-%d

(ie. 2003-10-29 for today).  This has the very useful property that
your directory listing will come out in *date* order.

 Subject: disappearing email?
 
 I have a client with a POP account on my server. Their main connection to
 the internet is via AOL. Some messages (not all) that they send out via this
 POP account (through my SMTP) never reach the server at all. They never
 bounce back, but never hit the server. I've sat in front the computer,
 checked the outlook settings, deleted and re-created the outlook settings,
 etc. That is all correct. The only thing I'm starting to notice is that if
 they send an e-mail with 1 address in the TO: line, it has better luck
 than if there are multiple addresses in the TO: line, however, that
 doesn't seem to affect things always. I had a client with this problem in
 the past - we took them off of AOL and moved them to a local dial-up
 provider. After that, there were no missing e-mails. I wondered if anyone
 else had encountered a similar problem, and if they ever found out what the
 culprit was. I hate telling my clients, Don't use AOL without a reason for
 the disappearing e-mail. Thanks,
 
 Joe

Re: disappearing email?

2003-10-29 Thread Rick Duvall
I am running my SMTP server on both ports 25 and 1025.  The idea here is
that we have a number of off site workers on a DSL account in which the ISP
won't allow any port 25 connections from the inside to the outside of their
network unless they are incoming SMTP from outside of their network.  These
offsite workers have to use port 1025 to send email through our mail server
to avoid the port blocking rules that the ISP has implemented.

Sincerely,

These are all various kinds of reports of the disk not reporting back

to check is the drive cable.  I've been getting the command timeouts

probably on its way out -- but that it might take months to get there.

How can I find out why the connection to WWW didn't close,
and prevent that from happening in the future?
I believe that what happens is that samba starts a process
which handles connections as they come-and-go from the
client machine.  If you make additional connections, you'll
notice that they all happen to 'pid 3064' (in the above
example).  I expect samba does this because there are times
when the windows client will make a whole bunch of very
short-lived connections, and it's better to have one process
which keeps track of client-information than to rebuild all
that information every time.
I'm not much of an expert on the low-level details, but I can
say that what you're seeing is also what I've seen, and that
I believe samba is supposed to work that way.

Actually, this doesn't show any signs of problems with the disk
surface itself.  The firmware on the drive is failing to report back
when the disk controller was execpecting it to.  I think the drive
cable is the most common problem when this occurs, although the drive
or the controller can be reponsible too.

I've been getting these messages on my -STABLE machine for the last
couple of weeks or so whenever the disk is stressed.  I haven't yet
gotten around to trying a new drive cable.

 how can i do a surgace scan of sorts so I can make them with badblock?

Aside from the fact that you're treating the wrong problem, you can't
do that within FreeBSD.  Modern drives do such sophisticated bad-block
mapping internally that it is no longer worthwhile to maintain such
facilities in the OS.

ACPI on FreeBSD-4.9-RELEASE, silly question

2003-10-29 Thread Juan Rodriguez Hervella
Hello,

I've just added the device acpica to my kernel,
and after rebooting it seems to be working well.

What I haven't found is any tool to use this. I
see that FreeBSD-5.1 has acpiconf and
acpidump, but it seems that FreeBSD-4.9 doesn't
have them.

What else can I do with this implementation of
ACPI for FreeBSD-4.9 ? Moreover, KDE-3.1.4
only has APM support

PS: Please answer me directly because I'm not
currently subscribed to the list !

 I believe that what happens is that samba starts a process
 which handles connections as they come-and-go from the
 client machine.  If you make additional connections, you'll
 notice that they all happen to 'pid 3064' (in the above
 example).  I expect samba does this because there are times
 when the windows client will make a whole bunch of very
 short-lived connections, and it's better to have one process
 which keeps track of client-information than to rebuild all
 that information every time.
 
 I'm not much of an expert on the low-level details, but I can
 say that what you're seeing is also what I've seen, and that
 I believe samba is supposed to work that way.

I just checked again, and the connection was closed at 12:13 local time,
about 24 hours later.
I guess that's acceptable, as long as it *does* finally close on it's
own.
Thanks for the reply!

How to view kmail stored email from console

2003-10-29 Thread Jason Dictos
Hi All,

I have FreeBSD 5.1 with KDE 3 running kmail. Kmail pulls from the
local mailbox into its mail archive. I'd like to figure out a way to reading
kmail email from the console. Is that possible?

I can already read mail in my mailbox via the console by using mutt, however
when kmail reads messages from the mailbox it deletes them and stores them
in its own special file. So what I'm trying to do is read that file via  a
console program.

Thanks,
-Jason

Printing as a user - FreeBSD, Apsfilter, KDE

2003-10-29 Thread Michael Dunham
hello..

I am using FreeBSD as my desktop.  I'm looking for help to print as a user 
from KDE.  I can generate a test print from Apsfilter just fine in the shell 
using the setup script.

I think I either do not have a spooler set up right, or a permission perhaps.
I also don't really know what I should select for the printer in KDE or if
there should be a command line entry.

I did have the sample lp setup in my printcap file at one point, currently
that is commented out.

I'm Running:
FreeBSD  Current (5.1)
Printer Canon BJC-610
Parallel /dev/lp0
LPD on start up
Ghostscript-gnu

As SU checking for the lpt:
freebie# dmesg | grep lpt
lpt0: Printer on ppbus0
lpt0: Interrupt-driven port
freebie# ls -l /dev/lpt0
crw---  1 root  wheel   16,   0 Oct 29 09:09 /dev/lpt0

From Apsfilter setup:
Checking permissions of /usr/local/share/apsfilter
found dir owner=root, ok!
found dir group=wheel, ok!
changing permissions of /usr/local/share/apsfilter... done.

Now we are checking file permissions in spooldir

Your line printer scheduler's spooldir seems to be: /var/spool/lpd

drwxrwxrwx  2 root  daemon  512 Oct 17 01:25 /var/spool/lpd

The Owner of your spooldir seems to be: root
The Group of your spooldir seems to be: daemon

First time through on test print returns a printer busy and resets printer
Second time through works fine
I reset printers as suggested in setup

From KDE 3.1.4

using OpenOffice  Writer, from open document
selected Generic Printer.
Windows fly by but nothing happens.  As I understand it, generic printer
should be lpd and should be captured by Apsfilter.


using Kmail, selected
print through external program, ps (only possible selection: postscript
printer, reports idle, accepting jobs), print command line empty.
Reports generating print file, then:
A print error occured. Error message received from system:
Empty print command.

Using Kmail, selecting Generic LPD print system, no device, no option to
 print

Using Kmail, cannot select LPR/LPRng (port not installed at this time, will
not compile on 5.1)  not an Apsfilter issue obviously.

Using KDE Control Center, peripherals, printer
Print Through External Program, PS_printer (only device available)
Unable to send, empty print command

Any help or config file to check would be greatly appreciated.

acpidump
acpicadb (this doesn't have man page !!)

So... I still don't have acpiconf

Should I wait until KDE-3.2 ?
I've just wanted to test this on my new laptop, but it's not

  The second is to use fam. I should mention that I've only used fam under
  linux, and, after a brief glance, it looks like the FreeBSD port
  (/usr/ports/devel/fam) is not as powerful--in particular, FreeBSD
  apparently doesn't provide imon support (a way for the filesystem to
  make a callback to a usermode app like fam--no dnotify or anything
  similar, either, apparently). Which implies that it's probably just a
  heavier-weight way of doing the exact same thing--periodically stat'ing
  a list of files--and that there is no better solution available.
 
 Check the kevent(2) man page.  It's a generic mechanism for having the
 kernel message your process when some condition occurs, such as
 modification of a file.

Thanks. This is pretty cool, but it's missing a few things.

First, it works only on UFS filesystems. That's no big deal; fam could
use kevent on UFS and poll other filesystems. However, that does seem to
rule it out for the original poster's purpose (the file he wanted to
monitor was mounted via smb).

More importantly, kevent apparently doesn't notify you when a file is
accessed (or does changing the atime trigger NOTE_ATTRIB? in that case,
it does--but to distinguish between an access and a change you'd have to
stat the file). This seems to make it unusable for fam, as well as for
the original poster's purpose (he wanted to see all accesses to a file).

It also doesn't seem to notify you when a file in a directory you're
watching is changed. This might would make fam much more complicated.
However, I think the same is true of dnotify, so the extra code can
probably be borrowed from the dnotify patch

 Unfortunately other than knowing something
 happened, it doesn't tell you a great deal else, like who it was that
 made the alteration.

Well, fam doesn't tell you anything more either; neither does imon nor
dnotify--or stating a file directly. The OS and filesystem don't keep
track of things like who was the last user or process to touch a file.

If you want that, you could take fstat snapshots and hope to catch
everyone who has the file open (this should work if users tend to access
it for a long period of time, say a second or more). Or you could get a
lease on a file and see who breaks it (although many programs might try
to write the file without breaking your lock first, and just fail and
give up--and besides, I don't know if that would work in FreeBSD the way
it would in linux). Or you could put a fifo/socket/loopback
filesystem/something between the actual file and the pathname people use
to access it, and thereby control/monitor all access to it; etc.

 Even so, fam(1) has apparently not been patched to use kevent(2) under
 FreeBSD, so, yes, it's probably going to operate by polling the file
 status every so often.

Well, it looks like it would be a pretty easy patch to fam (especially
since someone's already generalized the imon code to allow using dnotify
instead), but if it can't provide information on accesses, it'd also be
a useless patch (which might explain why nobody's done it yet?). 

Another issue: In linux, you can open a file O_NOACCESS (== O_ACCMODE,
if you don't #include anything extra), which gets you an fd to pass to
fstat/fcntl/whatever even without read or write access to the file. I
assume the dnotify patch to fam uses this. This doesn't seem to work in
FreeBSD. If you try to open a file O_ACCMODE, you get EACCES. Therefore,
you'd have to open the file O_RDONLY to get an fd for kevent--which
means you can't monitor a file that you can't read, which would be
another limit placed on fam by using kevent.

Plus, kevent doesn't seem to give you information on what's been changed
within a directory, so fam would have to do some dirty work on each
access (or monitor all files within the directory...). I think the same
is true with dnotify; if so the kevent patch could use the same code as
the dnotify patch, which is probably fine.

Still, it's a good idea; I'll look into this a little deeper.

Re: X11 and Xfree86

2003-10-29 Thread andi payn
M.D. DeWar:

 What is the purpose of them exactly. I have read the sites but being 
 alien to the unix world it confuses me.
 Do they just make unix a windows type enviroment ?
 Is KDE/GNOME the same or they like themes to X windows.

The simple answer is: X plus KDE or GNOME provides Unix with a
Windows-type environment. KDE/GNOME are an integral part of that
environment. KDE and GNOME themselves _have_ themes, and those are like
themes in the Windows world.

You want either KDE or GNOME, with all the default stuff that comes
with it. In fact, install them both, and play with each for a while.

In fact, there's a similar separation in Windows--some of the user
environment is provided by Windows itself, and some by separate programs
(especially the Windows Explorer program), but this separation is much
cleaner under Unix/X. Furthermore, GNOME or KDE themselves separate into
a number of separate layers (this is also true to some extent in
Windows, but even to the application developer most of this is hidden).
This difference has some advantages, and one big disadvantage.

The biggest advantage is flexibility. You can run KDE or GNOME, or a few
other alternatives, or a more bare-bones X setup with no desktop
manager. You can run KDE apps under GNOME, and vice-versa (and so on for
the other alternatives). In fact, you can replace almost any piece of
the puzzle and everything will work smoothly.

The biggest disadvantage is that novices have all these different pieces
thrown at them. Instead of just Windows, they have to contend with, say,
Unix, X, Metacity, Gtk+, GNOME, Nautilus, Panel, GDM, GConf, and ESD
(and that's if you only run GNOME). 

So, let's look at these pieces briefly:

* Unix is the operating system. (Linux people like to further divide
this into the kernel and the rest of the OS.) The Windows equivalent is
the NT kernel, its Win32 executive, the cmd command-line shell, a slew
of command-line tools, a bunch of background services, etc.

* X (aka X/Windows, X11, etc.) is the GUI. It's equivalent to part, but
not all, of the Windows GUI. You can see what X does by just running X
on its own, as Erik Steffl suggested. X also comes with a variety of
tools, like xterm, and libraries for building X applications.

* Metacity (kwm for KDE) is the default window manager. X plus a window
manager is the equivalent to the Windows GUI itself. This is the part of
the system that lets you drag windows around, assign hotkeys like
Alt+Tab or Winkey+F, etc. You have a wide choice of other window
managers, many (but not all) of which are completely compatible with
GNOME or KDE.

* Gtk+ (Qt for KDE) is a widget toolkit. It's equivalent to (the GUI
parts of) the Win32 API. As a user, you never worry about this--you run
programs that were built with Gtk+, just as Windows users run programs
that were built with the Win32 SDK, and they just run. But unlike
Windows, Unix/X has a dozen or so toolkits. You can run apps built
against different toolkits together (although they they may not have
exactly the same look and feel--a GNOME/Gtk theme only affects Gtk+
apps, etc.). You may have noticed something similar in Windows XP--most
applications have XP-style buttons and borders, but some (including the
cmd command-line window) have the old-fashioned Win95 style instead.
(Maybe it's better to say that Windows XP has 1-1/2 toolkits?)

* Nautilus (or Konqueror, for KDE) is the default file manager. It's
almost equivalent to Explorer in Windows. Just like Explorer, Nautilus
or Konqueror manage the desktop background window and all of its icons,
and provide the My Computer and Network Neighborhood browsing, and
can even be used as web browsers if you want.

* Panel (or Kicker, for KDE) is the program that handles the taskbar
and menubar and start menu. It's the rest of Windows' Explorer.

* GDM (or KDM, for KDE) is the login manager. This is equivalent to the
Login application in Windows. If you set up your system to boot into
graphical mode, this is the program that asks you for a username and
password (and maybe which desktop environment you want to run, etc.).
Or, if you've set things up for autologin, it runs without you ever
having to see it (just like in Windows).

* GConf (no KDE equivalent) is a preferences warehouse, like the Windows
registry. If you've never run regedit, you can probably ignore this.

* ESD (or ARtS, for KDE) is a sound server. This lets you handle sound
over the network, just as X lets you handle graphics over the network.
It also lets old apps that try to monopolize the soundcard work together
properly. You may have noticed on Windows that some programs take over
the soundcard and nothing else can make any noise, but that this is less
true with modern software. The same situation holds in Unix. Plus, like
Windows XP, FreeBSD has some tricks to make old software cooperate
(sysctl hw.snd.pcm0.vchans). And often, it's not a big deal anyway. So
often a sound server is not necessary for local use (and

afbackup keeps ejecting tapes

2003-10-29 Thread Noah
OS: freeBSD 4.8-STABLE
afbackup-3.3.5

Hi,

okay I am having a difficult time here. I must be misunderstainding something.
I have one tape drive and two clients. one of the client machines dis also the
server which has a single tape drive attached to it. the tape drive handles
only one cartridge at a time. I am rotating backups between 3 separate
cartridges. each weekly backup should be able to fit on one tape only since
the tapes are 50GB each.

I have already used these tapes for backup. The tape recently rotated.and as
soon as the tape was inserted I received mail to run the cartready program and
did that.

then afbackup ejects the tape from the drive and sends me the following message:

The device /dev/sa0 on host hostname.domain.com is not ready for use. You are
requested to check the device for possible errors and to correct them.

Best regards from your backup service. 

do I need to do more then cartready? Am I missing a step to rewind the tape?

Any ideas here

thanks,

The answer to your question is cunningly hidden at the top of the
/usr/src/UPDATING file -- you know, the one the instructions are
always telling you to read -- and it's hidden there because it's a
secret, and that's the one place no-one would ever look for it.

I have Roadrunner cable service ( i know, it sucks, but i get it for

trying different things I've read on websites and books, but have yet 
to get it working.  Thanks.
If your switch is something like a Linksys broadband router, which runs 
it's own DHCP server and maybe PPPOE, you should be able to just do a 
dhclient on the FreeBSD machine and be good to go.

Otherwise, you can set up your own local subnet on the switch, and then 
set up internet connection sharing on one machine or the other, but 
you'll need to add a second NIC, run NAT and PPPOE, and so forth.

Should I upgrade to 4.9?

2003-10-29 Thread Dragoncrest
	I'm upgrading all my workstations to 4.9 tonight, but I have a small mail 
server (p120 with 120m ram) that's running 4.8 that does nothing more than 
fetch mail, sort it, scan it, then deliver it locally for me to pick up at 
my leisure.  I'm wondering if it would be in my best interests to leave it 
at 4.8 for right now or go ahead with the 4.9 upgrade.  The mail server is 
my only mission critical machine right now, so that's why I'm asking 
this.  It's the only box I can't afford to have go down.  Any help or 
suggestions is welcome.  Thanks.

Do you need to update it (security advisories, etc)?  If yes, then
update.  If no, then don't ;-)

Re: why is it known as unknown

On Wed, 2003-10-29 at 13:33, M.D. DeWar wrote:
 for curiosity and exciting dinner banter, why is it I see
 programs/application etc referring to FreeBSD as
 i386-unknown-freebsd4.8 system
 or when doing a configure it shows as that ?

The short answer is that 'unknown' means that the applications were
compiled to run on (almost) any i386-based platform. If that's not
enough of an answer, read on.

In most cases, you're seeing what your development tools saw as the
target when building the software you're running. So, you're running
software (including FreeBSD itself) that was built to run on an
'i386-unknown-freebsd4.8' system.

This string is in the format 'cpu-platform-os[-kernel]'. So, the
'unknown' is the hardware platform.

There are different i386-based hardware platforms--the 'pc98' platform,
for example. But the vast majority of i386 systems out there follow the
loosely-defined, de facto PC standard. Knowing that you're building
for an 'i386-pc' doesn't tell you much more than 'i386-unknown'.
Basically, whenever software for 'i386-pc98' and 'i386-pc' would have to
be different, 'i386-pc' doesn't tell you enough anyway. 

Fortunately, the target string usually gets matched up against a
wildcard string like 'i386-*-freebsd*' or 'i*86-*-*bsd*'. So,
'i386-unknown-freebsd4.8' will match the same things as
'i386-pc-freebsd4.8' anyway. So, most of the code you run is going to be
for 'i386-unknown', and code that you build locally will probably end up
targetted at that platform as well.

The same isn't true for all platforms. For example, since a DECstation
and an SGI box are quite different (and in consistent, meaningful, and
important ways), even though they both use MIPS processors, it's
reasonably common to distinguish 'mips-dec-*' vs. 'mips-sgi-*'.

Now you're probably wondering where the '[-kernel]' part comes in. After
all, there's only one possible kernel that FreeBSD 4.8 could be running
on--the FreeBSD 4.8 kernel. Same for Ultrix or Irix (you'll see
something like 'mips-dec-ultrix4.1') or any other Unix, right?

But linux isn't an OS, it's just a kernel, so you can't have
'i386-unknown-linux' or 'mips-sgi-linux', or rms will sing at you. The
OS that you get when you buy/download Redhat Linux or Mandrake Linux is
not linux at all, but GNU/Linux--the GNU operating system running on top
of the linux kernel--which is compatible with GNU/Hurd--the GNU
operating system running on top of the HURD thingy. So, in either case,
you should have 'i386-unknown-gnu'.

It's a pity about all that old code that checks for 'i386-*-linux'
because GNU/Hurd didn't actually exist until recently (assuming you'd
call 2006 recent), but what can you do?

Unfortunately, GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd aren't actually compatible in real
life, so 'i386-*-gnu' doesn't really help--you need to distinguish
between linux and HURD as often as between linux and FreeBSD. For that
reason, you have 'i386-unknown-gnu-linux' or 'i386-unknown-gnu-hurd'.
And you can then check for 'i386-*-gnu-linux' (plus, 'i386-*-linux'
still works).

Actually, some tools say 'i386-unknown-gnu-linux2.4.18', just like
'i386-unknown-freebsd4.8', so you really want to check 'i386-*-linux*',
just like 'i386-*-freebsd*'.

Not that this contradicts the fact that any other Unix only has one
kernel to worry about (GNU's Not Unix), but since most Unix programs are
built for linux as well (and vice-versa, fortunately, considering where
the hype), it affects Unix anyway.

If you want to know more about any of this... well, I'm not sure where
all the information is, although there is a ton of it. Start by skimming
the info pages for autoconf, I'd guess.

The middle part is really supposed to be the type of the system, so if
you were running on an IBM system it ougth to say i386-ibm-freebsd4.8
and if you used a system from Digital it might be alpha-dec-freebsd4.8. 
On PC systems it is often impossible to determine from a program what
kind of system it is, and it really doesn't matter much anyway, so the
middle part is just reported as 'unknown'.

SNMP help

2003-10-29 Thread Ronnie Clark
Hello all, 

I have been tasked with building two new FreeBSD
Servers for our enterprise. Today, I was told that
they have to have the ability to be polled by
OpenView. So I have to load SNMP on these servers. Any
suggestions as to what I should load to accomplish
this? 

Any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Ron Clark

Hi Kris,

 The dependencies might be installed, but are they *all* up-to-date?
 You typically cannot build new versions of software with old
 dependencies.  Use portupgrade to upgrade your ports.

I've done a 'portupgrade -frR firebird' which leads to the same
result.  Should I use other options?

Thanks,

Install the net-snmp port.

Try:

http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/ports.cgi?query=snmpstype=all

and the one you propably one is net/ucd-snmp. Works splendidly with
OpenView. Also be sure to look at the script extension.
