I'd have to come up with some wording. And ofcourse a design.

Thank you so much for your interest!


What you're looking for is something similar to the firefox extensions 
site? The author presents his extension and users can add comments or 
rate it. You can show the most popular by rating or downloads - for 
freebsd the latter would be difficult though.

Chris,

I will use a CVS tag to update a release for any officially reported 
security issues.  You can look up the right tags here:

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvs-tags.html

However, with production boxes, I have either non-production boxes I 
update first to test the release, or secondary production boxes I update first.


I only update these systems if the security issue will effect the 
use.  For instance, if it is an issue with ipfw, but I am not using that 
on a box, I don't bother to update it.


Hope this helps,

-Derek


Are you using these tags for the ports or the base system + userland?  I 
love the way that I can track the security/bug fixes by tracking a branch 
of the code for the src directory.  It would be nice if ports forked too.

Well you have the much hyped green laptop announced by Nicolas

There are tons of stuff on initiatives in developing countries to move 
to OSS, I have seen particularly South America hitting headlines while 
Africa seems to lack more behind.


Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Venezuela, AFAIK, have passed laws to move 
to OSS.


Congress member Villanueva have hit headlines worldwide for his work to 
move Peru onto OSS. His letter exchange with Microsoft in Peru have been 
translated into many languages.


  http://www.wired.com/news/business/0,1367,54141,00.html

And there's the Brazilian minister of culture who offered to license his 
music under an open content license.


  http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/12.11/linux.html

China have long ago announced a national flavour of linux - red I assume :)

Unfortunately FreeBSD doens't make the headlines like Linux does, so 
FreeBSD is almost never considered as an alternative - in particular 
when initiatives are made by politicians, I think they largely 
understand OSS as Linux rather than a class of alternatives.

It should be possible to capture on the interface in promiscuous mode.

Re: coming back up after power failure (UPS)

2006-03-10 Thread Alex Zbyslaw

Bob Johnson wrote:


-  When the UPS believes it is about to run out of battery power and
shut down, the OS shuts down to single user mode and starts a script

- If the UPS does shut down, when power is restored, the BIOS will
detect the event and power up the PC normally.  It will boot as
normal.
- If the UPS never shuts down (because line power is restored) the
script eventually times out and reboots the system anyway.

I tried to make this work a few years ago, but could find no way to
start a script after shutting down to single user mode.   I posted a
query about it but got no replies, so I quit worrying about it.  I've
since seen some hint that it is now possible to do that, but I didn't
follow it up.  Can anyone tell me how to do that?



man rc.d :-)  Every script in /etc/rc.d with a shutdown keyword will be 
run when shutting down with the param stop.  If your NUT shutdown 
script touched some special file, your rc.d script could key off that to 
do a reboot in 5 minutes.  I thinks that's what you're describing.

My guess is that your connection to the remote machine is via a
NAT (Masquerading) connection, and there's no activity on the
connection.  Running something like top when you're not actively
using the connection will probably prevent the timeout.

 

If that's the case then running ssh -o ServerAliveInterval 60 would do 
that.  If it works, you can stick the option in your .ssh config file.

Given that the communist block has fallen, I would say that the concept
of 3rd world countries is rather obsolete, dont you think? :) 

  guess this may be coming to an end, or not expanding, since the new

 Yeah, sure, government did the same here in Thailand, cheap PC at $250
 with Linux, and every body did installed Windows on it as soon as they
 get home :) Because Free Software was simply not working and that was
 not what they used at school, in the internet cafe and such, there
 were not the latest and coolest games...

FWIW, I was born and raised in Argentina, and moved to Australia when I
was 23. I can tell you that as far as 1994 open source was already
making strides in the environments you usually relate to OSS
(universities, etc), which I think is somewhat in line with the rest of
the world.
By 1998 I was personally involved in 3 companies (private
tertiary education (linux) and web hosting (linux and freebsd) ) using
open source (linux and linux + freebsd, respectively). I then moved to
Sydney, and found out that things in the first, Anglo Saxon /
Commonwealth world were somewhat different...but not as much as one
would expect. eg.:
 - Individuals still install their WindowsXP / Office / others CD from a
friend (which is actually a copied CD from god knows where) - just like
in Argentina.
 - Individuals couldnt care less about it - just like in Argentina 
 - Companies still will install their MS Windows OS from a copied CD,
or knowingly use more licenses than they are entitled to.

The rate of this behaviour is higher in Argentina than in Australia,
but I suspect it's mainly because 1 single license of, say, Windows XP
can be as much as a whole month's salary in AR, whilst in AU it may be
a week's. 

So, yes, I agree that opensource makes a huge difference in quality
(mainly) and cost (somewhat, because those who wont buy the software
wouldnt do it anyway), but as Brazil, Germany, France and so many other
countries are showing , the best way (IMHO)  to foster OSS is to get
the goverment and education instutions to lead the way by spending
wisely the tax payers $.

And I agree with Giorgios post - talk to the people in the
countries...or go spend some time there - it's far more complex than
you think.

Sorry for the /rant :)

 To build a kernel with the IP filter, follow these steps:

 make freebsd5 - went successfully
 make install-bsd - went successfully
 FreeBSD/kinstall - generated patch error about conf.c file not being found...

Here's your problem then.

This is *NOT* the way to install IP Filter on a FreeBSD system.
You should only upgrade parts of the base system using the process
documented and recommended in ``/usr/src/UPDATING''.

Start over with a clean /usr/src and /usr/obj tree and read the file

We're currently operating with 2GB ECC Registered PC333 ram, but are finding a

total) - but what about FreeBSD?


System is running:
- Apache (about 10-12 mod_perl httpd's @ 90MB ram each)
- Apache (about 20-30 very basic httpds for static stuff @ 12Mb each)
- Sendmail, including MimeDefang and SA processes at some 90MB each
- MySQL 4.1 running about 70MB Ram
- Samba (smbd's running at 30Mb ram each 30-50 in use at any time)
- A number of Perl processes ranging from 1Mb - 900Mb each
- Other misc, but the above are the major ones

jail startup, despite all jails are started normally. On the other hand,
the /etc/rc.d/* scripts are executed normally and base system

TFT monitors and Xorg

Hello,

Probably a stupid question, but I'll take my chances.
For years now I only used normal monitors on windows, linux, FreeBSD
but soon I'll get a Samsung 930BF TFT screen.

What I'd like to know is, if Xorg is capable of seeing this monitor
and sets the right options. I know it does a good job with other
monitors, but as I understand TFT's are quite different in some
aspects.

Do TFT's use HorizSync and VertRefresh the same way as normal monitors?

Maybe I worry about nothing, but I hope someone will explain things to
me than.

The ATA driver is still a bit flakey with more than 4GB of RAM, so make 
sure that you are using either a modern SCSI controller or a RAID

I have yet to get it working, but I've been focusing explicitly on an
Opteron blade using an amd64 install.  It seems as though you may have luck
by using an Intel blade (these are by far more common), and doing the
install via the Java-based console provided by the Management Module.  It
seems as though the keyboard just 'works' once you boot into an installed
system.

However, as I've not personally gotten it to work (and won't be able to play

approach will work.

disklabel messup.

2006-03-10 Thread Steve P.
I was using sysinstall's disklabel facility to poke around. I
accidentally did Undo on my installed 6.0 working slice.

Now, the mount points for my partitions fail to appear, even though I did
not write them. I just exited sysinstall.

The odd thing is that the system shows no adverse effects even on
shutdown reboot. I guess /etc/fstab provides the info to reboot.

What is the best way to get the mount points, etc back so
sysinstall/disklabel shows them correctly?

Would I use the disklabel command directly to reconstruct?

Thanks.

Steve.

Попробуй добавить правило count сразу до или после

Compiling an app made for linux

2006-03-10 Thread Josh Paetzel
I'm trying to compile a browser called flock from source.  My hope is 
to create a FBSD port for it.  The compile bombs out with the 
following error:

updater.o(.text+0x1373):/usr/home/jpaetzel/flock/mozilla/toolkit/mozapps/update/src/updater/updater.cpp:220:
 
undefined reference to `pthread_join'
gmake[6]: *** [updater] Error 1

I have linux compat enabled.

What library do I have to feed to it so that it can use this function?

TFT monitors and Xorg

2006-03-10 Thread dick hoogendijk
Hello,

Probably a stupid question, but I'll take my chances.
For years now I only used normal monitors on windows, linux, FreeBSD
but soon I'll get a Samsung 930BF TFT screen.

What I'd like to know is, if Xorg is capable of seeing this monitor
and sets the right options. I know it does a good job with other
monitors, but as I understand TFT's are quite different in some
aspects.

Do TFT's use HorizSync and VertRefresh the same way as normal monitors?

Maybe I worry about nothing, but I hope someone will explain things to
me than.

FreeBSD wiki

2006-03-10 Thread Jamie


I found a really interesting FreeBSD wiki at www.freebsdwiki.net which
covers FreeBSD admin info.

Does anyone know of a wiki for FreeBSD developers? Looking for info on
FreeBSD kernel and some OS theory. The former focuses on administration.

Local portaudit server.

2006-03-10 Thread David Robillard
Hello,

We use the port security/portaudit on all of our FreeBSD servers.
Currently, every machine has to out on the internet to download the
portaudit vulnerability database from the FreeBSD server.

Since all of the machines are downloading the exact same file, we
would like to setup a local portaudit server. This server would fetch
the vulnerabilty file and all the rest of our servers would fetch it
from the local portaudit server.

Has anyone done this setup? Any help/pointers would be great.

Thanks,

David

You could use ipfw to count the traffic to/from each user - something like
this will count traffic for the user foo:

ipfw add count all from any to any uid foo

See my sig for a hack that implements this.

 Here's your problem then.

 This is *NOT* the way to install IP Filter on a FreeBSD system.
 You should only upgrade parts of the base system using the process
 documented and recommended in ``/usr/src/UPDATING''.

 Start over with a clean /usr/src and /usr/obj tree and read the file
 ``/usr/src/UPDATING'' for instructions about upgrading from source.

Dear Erik and Giorgos,

Thanks a lot for your assistance! I just cvsuped one hour ago,
build/install kernel/world and now everything is working just fine! I
had probably a bad luck during first cvsup...

One last question (just for curiosity). What is the procedure for
_upgrading_ of ipf? I mean, since ipf is already included in the base
(v4.1.8), is it possible to upgrade it to v4.1.10?

Thank you once again and have a nice day!

Tippingpoint SMS client software

2006-03-10 Thread Edwin Groothuis
Greetings,

We recently obtained a Tippingpoint SMS server which is currently
safe guarding our network against the bad guys.

Unfortunately, the client software for Linux (which is nothing more
than a Java program) does and doesn't really work on my FreeBSD
machine:

- It tries to install the a Linux JRE.
- The installation program aborts halfway with errors in the Java program.

I unpacked all the .jar files and got the first part of the client
program working: It asks me for an SMS server, username and password.
Filling them in, it connects to the SMS server, I see some certificates
being exchanged but the client then throws a horrible An error
occured connecting to the SMS server. which absolutely is useless
here.

So my question... has somebody gotten the Tippingpoint SMS client
software running on FreeBSD?

Edwin

FreeBSD cluseter ?

2006-03-10 Thread RJ45


Hello,
I have the tastk to make a project of a server cluster for 20.000
mailboxes.
In which way may I create a cluseter of imap servers using FreeBSD ?
any suggestions or hints ?
The is the problem of the imap mailboxes. How can I syncronize them
in real time on both machines ?
I as thinking to cyrus imapd or dovecot as imap server, but anyway 20.000 
mailboxes are really huge...

And with cyrus imapd is impossible to achieve a real fail over system
even using cyrus murder.
Anyone knows which kind of solutions are used by yahoo for example ?
thank you

Rick

Yep.

Disappointed with version 6.0

2006-03-10 Thread Peter
I'm setting up a new server on 6.0 I've been planning for a long time
and I am very disappointed with two critical issues.  My motherboard is
the ASUS K8V-X SE that I chose because it was listed as compatible at
the FreeBSD/amd64 Project:

http://www.freebsd.org/platforms/amd64/motherboards.html

I wonder if going back to 5.4 might help?

Onto the problems...

1. I have 4 IDE drives:

primary controller: Maxtor 40 GB hd (master) and LG cdrom (slave)
secondary controller: Seagate Barracuda 200 GB hd (master) and Seagate
Barracuda 300 GB (slave)

Problem: The 300 GB drive is unusable.

I set it up ok with sysinstall during the installation but the system
will not boot properly if it has an entry in /etc/fstab.  I get many
errors like:

ad3: WARNING - READ_DMA UDMA ICRC error (retrying request) LBA=63

I also get input/output error if I try to examine its label with
disklabel.

dmesg output is at the end of this post when I booted without fstab
line.

The strange thing is that the two drives on the secondary controller
are so similar.  Same manufacturer, same product line, the speeds are
the same.  Everything is the same except the size.  I ran dos-level
diagnostics on it and no problems were found.

2.  I can't use my USB ports!

I get a line like this for each of my ports:

uhci0: VIA 83C572 USB controller port 0xb800-0xb81f irq 21 at device

The best place to start looking for information is at the FreeBSD

I am not an expert on this but you should be able to run multiple

Re: TFT monitors and Xorg

2006-03-10 Thread Joseph Vella
On Friday 10 March 2006 09:57, dick hoogendijk wrote:
 Hello,

 Probably a stupid question, but I'll take my chances.
 For years now I only used normal monitors on windows, linux, FreeBSD
 but soon I'll get a Samsung 930BF TFT screen.

 What I'd like to know is, if Xorg is capable of seeing this monitor
 and sets the right options. I know it does a good job with other
 monitors, but as I understand TFT's are quite different in some
 aspects.

 Do TFT's use HorizSync and VertRefresh the same way as normal monitors?

 Maybe I worry about nothing, but I hope someone will explain things to
 me than.

No you don't have to worry, Xorg has no problems with them.  I haven't even 
had to specify Hsync and VertRefresh.  But if you want to, Xorg has the 
options to get very specific with the settings.  Here's a section of 
xorg.conf for one of my monitors.  It ran just as well without all this 
stuff, but since I had the info, why not set it.

Section Monitor
DisplaySize   430   270 # mm
Identifier   Monitor0
VendorName   DEL
ModelNameDELL 2005FPW
HorizSync30.0 - 83.0
VertRefresh  56.0 - 75.0
Mode1680x1050
DotClock 119.0
HTimings 1680 1728 1760 1840
VTimings 1050 1053 1059 1080
Flags-HSync +VSync
EndMode
EndSection


This monitor has a non-standard resolution of 1680x1050 and Xorg has no 
problem with it.

The sharpness of a TFT display (especially on text) makes CRTs look quite 
blurry in comparison. After getting used to TFT I can't use CRTs anymore.

There is one difficulty.  That very sharpness actually makes many fonts appear 
horrible.  You might have to play with font.conf to get them looking good.  I 
had to set antialiasing, hinting, sub pixel rendering. I had to get the right 
combo and had to set them differently for different font sizes and weights 
and even family for some of them.

I've had poor results connecting some models with analog.  The same monitor 
had a night and day quality upgrade by using a DVI connection.  You can find 
good video cards with DVI for $50 (even less).

Another thing to note is that it's best to run them at their native 
resolution.   The Samsung you mentioned is only 1280x1024 for a large 19 
screen.  For me that would make everything too large.  If I was looking for 
19, I would want a higher native resolution.  If I was happy with that 
resolution I would be looking for a 17 monitor.  Of course I know nothing of 
your usage and preferences so YMMV (just a heads up).

I think the most significant hardware upgrade I've done in 15 years was the 
widescreen display.  Being able to have two windows open side by side is a 
whole new world.

This is what I have, right now it's on sale. Normally I'm not particularily 
fond of Dell, but this monitor rocks:
