If your CD-ROM is ATA slave, then try changing it to ATA master. If it
is master, then try slave.

I had same looking problem with much cheaper hardware (MSI motherboard

Re: C Program to execute programs in same console

2006-04-05 Thread usleepless
Hi Jon,

could you give another example ( not cd ) of a command which you would
like to execute in the calling shell?

usleep

 usleep,

 What I am trying to do is execute the command in the calling shell.
 So, if I were to execute my program, which changes the directory, it
 would do the following:

  pwd
 /usr/home/username/
  ./myprog ..
  pwd
 /usr/home/

 That's basically what I'm looking for.  Being able to modify the
 calling shell with a program.

 Thanks,

  Jon,
 
  i believe you are mixing up some concepts.
 
  1. if i read your title C Program to execute programs in same
  console. i think this is easy, just use system(ls *.txt) and you
  are done. i believe you can choose wat to do with the output, i am not
  sure.
 
  2. but you come up with the cd-command, which you want to change the
  context of your parent shell.  changing the home-dir of the current
  process ( your program ) can be done with chdir. altering the context
  of your parent-shell-process can not be done, except for setting
  environment variables ( through the proper C calls )
 
  but if you are running your program, your shell (interpreter) is
  temporarily not there:  your program is running the show. every
  system,execvp or whatever call will give you a child-process with a
  new shell, not the parent-shell-process. i believe you may set
  environment variables in your parent shell with the appropiate library
  calls, but not through a system/execvp call.
 
  so, maybe you should define what you really want to achieve. for
  example, qdvd-author runs alls kinds of external programs to generate
  thumbnails and slideshows for example.
 
  anybody please correct me if i am wrong.
 
  regards,
 
  usleep

Perhaps connecting to the shell via a pty, and then sending it a 'cd'

Glad you got it fixed. While I'm not having this
problem, I've never tried to portdown grade something.

For your particular problem could you recite the steps
in the group so that if I or someone else should ever
have to do something like this in the future (with
this port or another) we can follow through. I know I
sure would like to shake a finger at a few
portmaintainers for putting ports that are beta in

Re: Question bout migrating from 4.X tree to 5.x or even 6.x

2006-04-05 Thread Erik Norgaard
Robert Yoon wrote:
 I am planning on upgrading from the 4.x tree to the 6.x tree.
 I have been reading online and have found little or no reference
 information.

I think a lot of stuff was written when 5.3 was announced, that was when
5.x branch was declared stable IIRC.

 I would like to actually do this without a make world scenario, and have
 read some info bout booting off a usb device with 6.0 on it and copying
 stuff over.
 Anyone know of or heard bout this by any chance?

If you have an extra machine or can afford the downtime, then you might
save yourself a lot of work by simply doing a clean install this time.
IIRC this was the recomended method for upgrading 4.x to 5.x.

Part the reason I guess is that there has been a lot of reorganizing so
building and installing from src may leave a lot of junk around.

Recently make targets, delete-old and delete-old-libs, have been
added but I'm not sure if that would clean up after 4.x.

 Also what recommendations would you make if you were to upgrade from 4.x
 tree to 5 or 6?

I think the major jump is going from 4.x to 5.x, I have since 5.x made
incremental upgrades to 6.x without any problems. So, you might as well
go straight to 6.x and skip 5.x entirely.

Cheers, Erik

  Hi
 
   I am looking for ways to manage our LAN by having each user register
  their ipaddress, mac address, workstation os, etc. in our ldap directory.
  Now in our pcrouter, the users will first send his login credentials to
  the pcrouter, and then the pcrouter will check against ldap if this login
  is correct, and if it is, then it will now do an ldapsearch/compare
  operation to see if the source address (ip/mac) of the user trying to
  gain network access is indeed belongs to that user. Only then, the ipfw
  ruleset will be changed to allow traffic originating from this source
  address...

  snip
  Does it have to be LDAP and ipfw?
 there is authpf which..

  Ofcourse this does not cover the IP|MAC address checking you mentioned,
 but I don't see how this enhances security. It will be easy for a user to
 change his IP|MAC address.
  /snip

  Our main problem is that in our company, each user has his own
 workstation(no one else uses it).. However, due to poor implementation of
 ip allocation strategy, any user can change his ip to whatever ip address
 he wants, thus it would be hard for us to really monitor who is doing this
 and who is doing that (because it would be useless to see the ip address of
 the one who's eating up or bandwidth or doing p2p when we cannot determine
 who is this user this ip belongs to. This leads us to our decision to have
 every user assigned a static ip address and have him register his mac
 address, all stored in ldap directory, and have him authenticate to the pc
 router first before being allowed to access any server.

All these are not problems with the solution I suggest below

 Authpf is somewhat 
 close to this idea but perhaps it was designed for environment wherein
 users have no permanent workstation, or user can come from any location,
 even outside the company(at home)

  I have created a draft of my proposed solution:

  First, user will authenticate to a web based login form which is tied up
 against the ip[f|fw|tables] ruleset.

  When the user submits the form, the cgi will then verify if the user is
 really who he claims to be by doing an ldapbind using the credentials
 provided. Also, the script will check if the request is coming from an ip
 address that is assigned to that user, by comparing it to his ldap
 attributes (somewhat prevents users from using other user's ip address).

  If everything goes well, the script will happily change the router's
 firewall ruleset to allow the user to pass thru. (note that in our setup,
 we have allocated a single class C ip block for all the staffs(120) (no
 need to have separate blocks since all policies applies to all). Also, we
 have placed all the servers (mail, proxy, file, printer, im etc) in a
 different block to make sure that authentication will happen first before a
 user is allowed to access any of those servers.

  Next, we will also provide a logout form(the same as logging out from ssh
 session in authpf) so that the ruleset can be reverted back when the user
 does not want to access any network server anymore. The problem with this
 is that users may be too lazy to logout to the network authentication.. In
 authpf, even the user did not logout from his ssh session, when he turns
 off his computer, the ssh session will automatically be terminated. I'm
 thinking perhaps I can have a nagios server constantly monitoring each
 user's network connectivity and then changing the firewall ruleset once the
 user's machine is unreacheable...

  Another problem I am thinking is that, when a user has already
 authenticated to the router and have his ip address verified and has been
 allowed in the firewall, another smart user might immediately change his
 ip/mac address to that of the authenticated user, and thus making it hard
 to track his network activity again.. I'm still going to investigate if
 arpwatch can fill this need


  What do you think???

I think all these can be addressed with mpd  RADIUS... read bellow





If it isn't too much trouble you can use PPPoE and/or PPTP
with mpd  RADIUS.

You'll then have:
 1) username/password authorization
 2) dynamic or static IP address assignment from
  predefined ranges
 3) accounting per username
 4) traffic control per IP address(ipfw dummynet)*
 5) other interesting RADIUS or PPP features. For example:
  a) idle-timeout(the user is not using the network
  and will be logged off).
  b) session-timeout(the user will have a forced log-out
  after, let's say, 10 hours).
  c) session control. You will know if the connection is
  up, no matter the traffic.

*) actually very few ipfw rules. Two rules per bandwidth
 category (384/128, 512/256 etc). I used ipfw tables
 for that. mpd can also do per-user ipfw-rules if you
want that

Then make sure /home/ken/rn is executable.

I'd also suggest moving your `rn' script in `/root/scripts/rn' and
making `root:wheel' its owner.  The crontab entries from `/etc/crontab'
are executed with root permissions, so giving the user `ken' control
over what runs is creating a backdoor for anyone who gets access to that
non-root user account.

My first thought was to buy some blank sticker paper and print your own,
but I realized that I didn't know any FreeBSD software that would map a

someone knows of a port for this...

Subject: Attacking our pc router at work


Hi,
 
 I have one question. What if I change my ip and mac address at 
the same time to that of our pcrouter's ip and mac... Will this 
going to kick out that router in our network, causing the rest 
of the entire lan to be out of service??

Yes.

No one's gonna caught 
me right??

That depends.

Arpwatch can only watch if an ip address has moved 
to another mac address but not when both ip and mac has moved 
to another ip and mac... Do you know any possible solution to this??


Yes, buy good managed switches and install mac-level filters.  People
that run dumb hubs or unmanaged
switches in a large network are effin idiots in my book.

In a small network, like 20 or fewer stations, a savvy admin who
has encountered this trick before (ie: someone who has worked
college networks since there's always a few smart guys in the
fresman dorms who try this every year) can simply start pulling
out patch connections from the main hub or switch until the problem
goes away.

Typically corporate nets don't have these kinds of problems since
not many people want to risk getting fired.

RE: Questions regarding RAID support

2006-04-05 Thread Ted Mittelstaedt
Hi Paul,

  That if I'm not mistaken is the  Intel 82801ER (ICH6R) south bridge
chip set, and
you want to start by booting FreeBSD 6.1 BETA4 on that and seeing what
comes up.

  I am not sure what you mean by partial support  If you set your
Matrix array
up as a RAID0 only or RAID1 only you should see a disk titled ar0 in
the install selection
screen.  if you set it up as RAID0 and RAID1 you should see 2 disks,
titled ar0 and
ar1.

Hey everyone, I'm currently working on setting up a server with
RAID1. The
servers motherboard has an on board Intel MatrixRAID
controller. FreeBSD6.0
currently has partial support for this controller, given my
circumstances I
can wait awhile before the server goes live and was curious if
anyone had any
ideas as to the ETA for full support for this controller?

Thanks in advance

kdegames cannot be downloaded ?

2006-04-05 Thread Yuan Jue
hi all.

After portupgrade, I noticed that kdegames has updated to 
kdegames-3.5.2. The weird thing is kdegames-3.5.2.tar.bz2 cannot
be downloaded through any server in the Makefie. 

And, when google kdegames, the response is always time out, while
google other key words like kdeedu or kdenetworks would show the
right result quickly.

Does anybody know why? Thanks in advance

Re: Best way to print photos

On Monday 03 April 2006 15:27, M. Warner Losh wrote:
 OK.  I got bordered photo printing working.  I haven't gotten
 borderless printing working, alas.

 The key points I learned:

 (1) Install print/cups.
 (2) Install graphics/hpijs.   This filters .ps - goo the printer
 groks (3) Install graphics/gimp.  This makes .ps files
 (4) Kill lpr/lpd before starting cups.
 (5) Make sure you configure lpr/lpd not to startup on boot
 (6) Remove lp* binaries
 (7) Setup buildworld /etc/make.conf so it doesn't build lpr with
 NO_LPR or WITHOUT_LPR
 (8) Add printer via localhost:631 web interface.
 (8) Set printer to draft mode via cups for testing
 (9) Use firefox to generate test prints.
 (10) To print from gimp, I have to remove the '-l' from the command
  line every time I print in the printer setup.  This causes the
  raw .ps file to go to the printer, rather than via cups'
  postscript filter for the printer.
 (11) To get photos, one must set photo quality via cups setup
  interface.

 #10 is was tripped me up for a long time.  That's why printing to
 the black and white printer worked for me (it was a postscript
 printer), while it failed to the color.  I hadn't noticed before
 that it printed the raw postscript and then lots of new lines. 
 Since these newlines weren't accompanied by CR, all text was off
 the edge of the papper, all I got was a bunch of blank pages.

 #5 bit me on boot.  Since cups replaces the /etc/printcap
 unconditionally, when lpd started it failed to start.  I lost a
 bunch of print jobs before I worked out where they had gone and why
 things had gone south.

 I'd love to know how to print borderless prints (right now I get
 1/4 (8mm) boarder on the prints).  I'd also love to know how to
 setup gimp correctly.  However, these are really side issues now
 that I have basic functionality working.

 Thanks to everybody who was helpful in getting me to this point. 
 It got me over the hump.  My HP DeskJet 5850 is working great as a
 color printer with CUPS and my LaserJet 2200 continues to work like
 before.

 Now, all I gotta do is to figure out my OfficeJet 4200, at least
 the scanning portion...  But that can wait until my photo printing
 backlog is cleared...
I'm working on the scanning bit.  I've got a preliminary version of 
hplip ported.
http://am-productions.biz/docs/hplip.tgz
I'm working on getting some feedback from the hplip folks about why, 
GetInEP is returning a bogus endpoint in the Device::Read method.  
The side-effect of this is not being able to read from the device 
(eg. scanning, and status information).  Device::Write works, so I'm 
able to at least print to my Officejet 5510v.  The key right now for 
hplip, you have to run the printer as a ugen device not ulpt.
Currently in the port Device::Read is overly complicated because it 
needs to handle it's own buffering since ugen doesn't buffer bulk 
endpoints.

If you'd like to try to get it setup, you need to:
1) make sure your printer is attaching as a ugen device.
2) install the port using the linked skeleton above
3) Add the following to you rc.conf:
hpiod_enable=YES
hpssd_enable=YES
Note:  right now those daemons run as root, I'm going to change that 
once everything is working, but for right now that was easiest.
4) Stop cups
5) You MUST start the services in the following order
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/hpiod start  /usr/local/etc/rc.d/hpssd start 
 /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cupsd start
5) Run hp-setup and follow the prompts.
6) You should have been able to print out the test page in step 5.  If 
not, send the relevant parts of your syslog output.

Free BSD Upgrade Problem

2006-04-05 Thread dharam paul
Hallo all!
I am very new to FreeBSD.
I installed freebsd 5.4
I upgraded to source of RELENG_6_0 while I fetched in
the ports of current release by use of '*default tag=.

I followed following steps after downloading above
with CVSUP: (Please pardon me , I am from windows
background for my language
I backed up my kernel, 
#cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
#cp GENERIC GENERIC1.BAK
next
#cd /usr/ports
#make installworld
#make buildworld
#make buildkernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
#make install kernel KERNCONF=GENERIC
Now restarted 
#shutdown -r now
and logged in in single user mode.

Now the display was
*** Displaying difference of difference between
./etc/master.password  installed version
---/etc/master.passwd Thu MAr 23 13:46:04 2006
+++./etc/master.passwd Mon Jun 6 20:19:56:2006

(I am  not writing here all the output of differences)

Do you wish to delete what is left of 
/var/tmp/temproot?

My action: I opted for no.

Message: 
You installed a new master.passwd file so make sure
you run '/usr/sbin/pwd_mkdb -p/etc/master.passwd' to
rebuild your password files.
Would you like to run it now

My action: I opeted 'y

[EMAIL PROTECTED]
(After this I rebooted and I can not login now)


Now my question:
What is the remedy available to me now? I can not load
my backed up kernel also. Or may be that since I am a
newbie, I am not not following the correct procedure.
Do I have to reinstall the system now?

I started this upgrade process because my delay pools
were not working on squid in freeBSD 5.4.
Thanks and regards.

To quote from Kevin Kinsey original post:

So, you installed from source, or from the ports/packages system?
It reads like you installed from source, to me.

I did install samba from the ports...

At least it's working now, right?  Good catch of the problem!

It's working without problems, yes :)

Perhaps I'm not reading you right, but if you mean you want to print
your images all the way to the physical edge of the paper, I think
you are out of luck.

As I understand it, most consumer model printers simply do not
(physically cannot) support that. In PDF terminology, you've got the
MediaBox (paper size) is one thing and the Bleedbox (printable area)
is another, smaller thing. Then there's the Trimbox, an even smaller
area where printing is thought to be reliably accurate.

Of course, if you can print borderless on your particular printer
via Windows, then you should have a reasonable expectation of being
able to do that in FreeBSD as well. However, if you regressed your
setup I think you'd find that the hardware is the limiting factor.

What you said about printing all the way to the edge of the paper is
generally true of consumer grade printers, especially laser printers.
This printer, however, is definitely able to produce borderless prints
with Windows.

You're free to burn as many CDs of FreeBSD as you like and distribute
it without limitation.

If you want to use the daemon logo, you'll need to get Dr. McKusick's
permission, as he owns the copyright.  He's usually pretty good about
allowing you to do whatever you want, as long as you're not doing
something nasty.

I don't know what the status is on the newly created logo.

RE: Update from Ports removes dependency data

  and my algorithm isn't really airtight, but I'll give you the
algorithm
  I'm using.  The script just uses pkg_info, pkg_version, and grep.
 
 Sounds like you're reinventing the wheel..portupgrade does all this
 and more.
 
 Kris

Portmanager works great as well (in my experience anyways). It
automatically rebuilds things as needed when new ports come along
(including ports built with old dependencies).  It even handled
everything properly when a new version of perl came along. Its as simple
as 'portmanager -u' in most cases.

Linksys EG1032 support

2006-04-05 Thread Ashley Moran
Hi

We've just upgraded our office switch to a gigabit Netgear one.  We bought a 
stack of Linksys EG1032 cards because the hardware list says they are 
compatible with FreeBSD 6.  I've got one working in my desktop (dmesg 
identifies it as re0: Linksys EG1032 (RTL8169S) Gigabit Ethernet) which is 
running on an MSI K7N2 Delta2.  But on our Asus A8V Deluxe servers the card 
is not recognised (even the exact same card).  Any ideas why it wouldn't 
work?

Can anyone recommend a gigabit card that will run in 6.0-REL (amd64)?  I was 
about to order two D-Link DGE-530T cards but I found a page 
( http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-doc/2006-March/009897.html ) 
saying they don't actually work due to chipset changes.  Now I'm scared to 
buy ANY card in case the manufacturer has actually branded up a different 
chipset under the same name (which is a ridiculous practice IMHO).

Thanks Ashley

re-attaching STDOUT

2006-04-05 Thread Nathan Vidican

say one runs a command like so:

tar tvzpf _some_big_tar_file_will_take_hours_to_list.tgz 

then later I exit... leaving it running (note the '')

How do I later return and grab the output still coming from that command; where 
does the output of a command left running in the background go to?


Can I re-direct the output of a given command so a specific ttyv on the machine 
itself from a remote command; ie redirect stdout for a given command to ttyv2 ?


(tar was just an example, should apply to _any_ command which gives output to 
STDOUT).

 Hi,

I have one question. What if I change my ip and mac address at the

Your question is off topic for this list.

Use inteligent switches (not hubs) and port security (you can allow only
a specific MAC address behind a switch port). You could also use static 
entries on the switch for some MAC addresses (entry on a switch is a MAC
address + port behind which the address can be found) but that isn't as
safe. An attacker can generate traffic with lots of source MAC
addresses. Every switch has limited memory to store the MAC addresses
and usually when the table is full it starts working as a hub. A
sophisticate attacker may still be able to contaminate end stations - if
he sends a gratuitous ARP reply to a station where he pretends he is the
router (changes the MAC address), he will receive the traffic for the
router and can also then make man-in-the-middle attacks (insert himself
into forwarding chain of the station).

More sophisticated solution is using 802.1x - port-based authentication
- a switch will only start forwarding traffic to you once you
authenticate and you of course shouldn't be able to authenticate as the
server.

On FreeBSD you can disable ARP and/or create static ARP entries and it
will protect you a little but you also need to configure some protection
on the network infrastructure.

It's quite a complex issue to protect against this type of attack and I
am no real guru so please take what I said with a grain of salt.

Re: C Program to execute programs in same console

2006-04-05 Thread Jonathan Herriott
usleep,

What I am trying to do is execute the command in the calling shell. 
So, if I were to execute my program, which changes the directory, it
would do the following:

 pwd
/usr/home/username/
 ./myprog ..
 pwd
/usr/home/

That's basically what I'm looking for.  Being able to modify the
calling shell with a program.

Thanks,

 Jon,

 i believe you are mixing up some concepts.

 1. if i read your title C Program to execute programs in same
 console. i think this is easy, just use system(ls *.txt) and you
 are done. i believe you can choose wat to do with the output, i am not
 sure.

 2. but you come up with the cd-command, which you want to change the
 context of your parent shell.  changing the home-dir of the current
 process ( your program ) can be done with chdir. altering the context
 of your parent-shell-process can not be done, except for setting
 environment variables ( through the proper C calls )

 but if you are running your program, your shell (interpreter) is
 temporarily not there:  your program is running the show. every
 system,execvp or whatever call will give you a child-process with a
 new shell, not the parent-shell-process. i believe you may set
 environment variables in your parent shell with the appropiate library
 calls, but not through a system/execvp call.

 so, maybe you should define what you really want to achieve. for
 example, qdvd-author runs alls kinds of external programs to generate
 thumbnails and slideshows for example.

 anybody please correct me if i am wrong.

Award BIOS Upgrade Fees - Slightly Offtopic

Write a shell script.  If using sh/bash? run it as . shellscript or if

   alias foo source shellscript

Then when you type foo, any cd inside the shellscript will affect your 
current shell.


e.g.

% cat foo.sh
cd ..
% alias foo source foo.sh
% pwd
/tmp
% foo
% pwd
/
%

This is a rubbish alias since it only works if you are in the same 
directory as the shellscript, but I'm sure you can do better :-)


To my mind you are still explaining the solution you have come up with 
for some problem, but have not actually explained the original problem.  
Your solution is generally impossible since one process (your C

Subject: Award BIOS Upgrade Fees - Slightly Offtopic


I just encountered what I consider to be a totally outrageous
problem.
I've got a system with a BIOS issue.  The motherboard maker has
decided
to use Award's BIOS and they want a minimum of $39.95 to email me
the
BIOS update that I need to fix the system.



I thought I post here, even though it's a bit off topic to see if
any of
you have encountered anything similar and to see what you've done to
resolve the issue.



The system in question is loaded with FreeBSD.



TIA,



Jimi Thompson, CISSP

no, you should contact the list which comes closest to the problem: if
there is a problem with hylafax, check the hylafax
website/mailinglists.

if you suspect there is a problem with the combination of freebsd and
hylafax, you want to check the freebsd-mailinglists.

just like any other program you might use.

hylafax is a very mature package, has been running on freebsd for a
long time and has a nice configuration script. hardware may prove to
be more of a problem than software.

before configuring, read the README or other docs provided. check the
hylafax website too.

i am not in any way affiliated with hylafax nor hylafax+freebsd. i am
just another user ( 1 modem ).

Re: Portupgrade Ruby | warning: Insecure world

have any of you seen that warning before,? and do you

This comes from a recent security-minded change made
to ruby.  Your PATH references something in /tmp, and
since other userids *could* change things in /tmp,
this is warning that you might have a security problem.

I think several ruby users have found this recent change
is perhaps a bit over-zealous in it's warning.  Which is
to say, it is annoying.

You could change your setting of PATH to avoid this.
Perhaps the pkgtools.rb script could be changed to
automatically change the PATH, but in this case it
would have no idea *why* you reference some directory
under /tmp in your PATH.  So it's probably a bad idea
for the script to change the value.

Negative look ahead with capturing using pcre

2006-04-05 Thread Erik Nørgaard
Hi:

I am trying to write some rules for filtering email with postfix header
rules. In particular, I'd like to discard anything in a character set I
don't understand, or rather accept ascii, iso-8859-* and utf-8.

So I have created the following rule for mime header checks:

/^Content-Type:.*?charset\s*=\s*?(?!us-ascii|iso-8859-\d+|utf-8)(.*?)?.*$/i
WARN   MHD1000 Invalid charset: $1. Use UTF-8 or ISO-8859-X

I have two problems:

First: This rule catches a lot of legitimate mail, ascii or iso
character sets

Secondly: I'd like to catch the character set that is rejected so I can
adjust it if legitimate mail gets blocked. In the above I don't allow
windows-1252 for example.

So, how do I do negative look ahead with capturing using pcre?

Thanks, Erik

PXEboot install failing to load kernel

2006-04-05 Thread Chris
Hi,

I am trying to perform a netboot install of FreeBSD 6  to a Thinkpad
X40 laptop from linux on my desktop. I've followed what guides I can
but the info is either for older versions of FreeBSD (the CD structure
has changed?) or assumes an existing FreeBSD install to work from (for
dissecting floppy images etc).

I have downloaded the i386 bootonly iso and I have followed portions
of several guides which has got me as far as tftp serving the pxeboot.
I assume the dhcp and tftp parts are working ok as the laptop gets
hold of pxeboot fine but then fails to load the kernel.

I have tried nfs serving the boot directory of the cd and the kernel
directory within that without any luck, is the kernel passed by tftp
or nfs? I have tried tailing var/log/daemons but the failure to load
kernel message on the laptop is the only useful indicator I get.

Any help to get me further along appreciated,

Chris

Using javavmwrapper

Can anyone give me some guidance in using javavmwrapper?  I have
searched high and low (I know someone will post the link I have
overlooked) but can't seem to find any detailed information on how to
use it. I understand that there are some environment variables I can use

Also, does it only help when compiling ports that use Java or will it
work to run an application with a different VM?

Try 'rndc dumpdb' to examine the contents of the cache or 'rndc stats'.

The dumpdb command creates a file /var/named/var/dump/named_dump.db and the
stats command appends a short report to /var/named/var/stats/named.stats
by default (although these can be changed very easily by modifying named.conf)

You can run software that was built by older versions, but not vice
versa. That means you can run software that was compiled by 1.4 on 1.5
but not the other way around. Unless you set something like '-target
1.4' when building.

The assumption that you have some other existing FreeBSD installation
makes certain things easier: In particular compiling the loader with
tftp support, posibly creating a custom kernel and a memory file system.
If you can get hold of these from download, then you should be fine.

 I have downloaded the i386 bootonly iso and I have followed portions
 of several guides which has got me as far as tftp serving the pxeboot.
 I assume the dhcp and tftp parts are working ok as the laptop gets
 hold of pxeboot fine but then fails to load the kernel.

pxeboot can either attempt to fetch the kernel with tftp or nfs, (the
standard pxeboot does not support tftp).

If it doesn't get the kernel then either there is a misconfiguration so
it doesn't fetch it correctly with tftp or the nfs server is incorrectly
setup.

You should post the relevant part of your dhcpd.conf.

 I have tried nfs serving the boot directory of the cd and the kernel
 directory within that without any luck, is the kernel passed by tftp
 or nfs? I have tried tailing var/log/daemons but the failure to load
 kernel message on the laptop is the only useful indicator I get.

I would recommend to go without nfs: You can have pxeboot fetch kernel,
and the loader.* files as well as a memory filesystem using tftp. It's
easier to setup the server part, you have to setup tftp anyway and
already have it working, going for nfs just introduces an extra source
for errors.

I wrote down what I did when I tried to setup pxeboot, , you may have
found it - and yes, I do assume that you have a working FreeBSD for some
parts, but read on, it may not be relevant for you. Check out

   www.daemonsecurity.com/pxe/

I want to update this so let me know if there are any errors or things
that could be better explained.

Re: Award BIOS Upgrade Fees - Slightly Offtopic

2006-04-05 Thread Derek Ragona
This sounds like it is offered as a 3rd party BIOS upgrade.  You didn't say 
who the manufacturer is, bust most of the better manufacturer's support 
their own BIOS updates directly.  Using a 3rd party BIOS is often used on 
non-support motherboards or older motherboards that are no longer 
supported, or for some special feature the original manufacturer does not 
support (different CPU's or controllers, etc.)


For a 3rd party BIOS, 39.95 is cheap.  They can be much higher, close to $100.

Thanks a lot for your help Kamikaze.  I apologize.  With me being
somewhat of a newb to the interworking of FreeBSD, I assumed that the
make.conf file would be referenced hen building a port, not when running
a binary.

I entered the JAVA_PREFERRED_PORTS variable in the make.conf file and
all is well now!

Thanks!

 I have been using Zend Studio Client 4.0.2 on FreeBSD 6.0-SECURITY for

 So, if I wanted to try running Zend with the jdk15 port, how would I
 specify that I wanted to use the 1.5 version of the jdk before firing

 It would.

Help?

I am just looking at Free BSD as a Windows alternative.  I have a home
workgroup that I am out growing and wanting to do more with, but don't want
to give MS any more Hundreds of hard earned dollars.

 

My first question is where can I find a site that will list all approved or

like).  I don't have the time, or patience to get into major software
conflicts or bugs. I want to follow a A to B to C box build and software

FreeBSD hangs at boot

2006-04-05 Thread Daniel A.
Hi.
I am trying to get FreeBSD 6.0 running on my desktop machine, but with no luck.
When I boot in anything but Safe Mode, FreeBSD will hang at boot and
refuse to go further. I've tried to let have a go at it for 30
minutes, but the boot process didnt get any further.

When I try to boot the machine normally, it freezes at the following point:
[...]
ad0: 76319MB Seagate ST380021A 3.19 at ata0-master PIO4
ad1: 76319MB Seagate ST380021A 3.19 at ata0-slave PIO4
acd0: DVDR PLEXTOR DVDR PX-740A/1.01 at ata1-master PIO4
ad8: 114473MB Seagate ST3120022A 3.06 at ata4-master PIO4

The ad8 device is attached to my onboard Promise PDC20376 SATA150
controller, but even if I disable that device in BIOS, the system
then freezes after displaying:
acd0: DVDR PLEXTOR DVDR PX-740A/1.01 at ata1-master PIO4

Attached is the dmesg.boot I get when the SATA RAID controller is
enabled and I boot in safe mode.

Using Macromedia flash with native firefox

2006-04-05 Thread Ean Kingston
I've been trying to get Macromedia Flash 6 (linux-flashplayer6) to work with 
native firefox (1.5) on FreeBSD 6.0 and running into some annoying problems.

I know I needed linuxpluginwrapper to get this to work and so installed it 
along with the linux flash plugin port. I tried several times, reviewed the 
port build notes, looked for readmes, and searched some with Google. I found 
several detailed installation instructions but none of them worked for me.

In order to get it to work, I copied flashplayer.xpt and libflashplayer.so 
from the linux-flashplayer6 installation directory into the browser_plugins 
directory. I took this from instructions for getting an older flashplayer5 to 
work.

This at least got me to an error message (about not being able to locate 
libpthreads.so. That is one of the things that linuxpluginwrapper is supposed 
to take care of.

After several more attempts at trying to resolve this, I resorted to a brute 
force method. I copied the flash6.so library that came with 
linuxpluginwrapper to the browser_plugins directory as libpthreads.so.

This is a very bad solution but I got flash working.

So, my question is how do I get this to work properly? For any who might be 
able to help, here is some relevant info:

Installed:
firefox-1.5.0.1,1
linuxpluginwrapper-20051113
linux-flashplugin-6.0r79_3

messy file copies:
flashplayer.xpt - ../linux-flashplugin6/flashplayer.xpt
libdl.so.2 - /usr/local/lib/pluginwrapper/flash6.so
libflashplayer.so - ../linux-flashplugin6/libflashplayer.so
libpthread.so.0 - /usr/local/lib/pluginwrapper/flash6.so

So, how do I get this to work without the messy file copy?

ipfw and ssh

2006-04-05 Thread Anthony M . Agelastos

Hello everyone,

Allow me to preface my problem by saying that I am very ignorant when  
it comes to networking. I do apologize if this is trivial. In any  
event, I enabled the client ifpw firewall located in /etc/ 
rc.firewall. This appears to work well for my needs... except for one  
additional item. I need someone outside of my network to have SSH  
access to my machine. I know his/her IP address. So, I have added  
some additional items to rc.firewall for this. Here is what I added.


# Allow person SSH access
mip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
${fwcmd} allow tcp from any to any 22 out setup keep-state
${fwcmd} add pass tcp from ${mip} to me 22 setup limit src- 
addr 2


I have tried many, many differing variations of this from items I  
have found online. I cannot get any of them to work. My network setup  
is as follows


internet - cable modem - netgear router - freebsd 6.1-prerelease

This user can SSH into my machine when I set the firewall to open.  
Any ideas?

Re: FIXED Realplayer plugin not working after portupgrade

2006-04-05 Thread Oliver Iberien
It went like this:

Install portdowngrade. I think this is how I did it.

cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portdowngrade
make DEFAULT_CVS_SERVER=\”:pserver:[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/ncvs\” 
clean install

Then

portdowngrade linux-realplayer

will begin the process. Or you can specify the cvs server when invoking 
portdowngrade:

portdowngrade -s:pserver:[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/home/ncvs

All that is under the man page for portdowngrade. 

portdowngrade then goes through the ports tree in reverse chronological order, 
assigning a number to each one, and giving for each a little bit of the port 
description that also pops up in freshports.org (if you wanted more detail on 
the old versions, look there). Once it gives you the first page of the list, 
spacebar will give you a second page, enter will give you a prompt at 
which you enter the number of the version to revert to. Once portdowngrade is 
done,

portupgrade -f linux-realplayer

will install the version you specified. The man page concludes that the next

cvsup

will set the port back to its head revision!

 Glad you got it fixed. While I'm not having this
 problem, I've never tried to portdown grade something.

 For your particular problem could you recite the steps
 in the group so that if I or someone else should ever
 have to do something like this in the future (with
 this port or another) we can follow through. I know I
 sure would like to shake a finger at a few
 portmaintainers for putting ports that are beta in
 there, and sometimes I forget to look at the Makefile.

 Thanks.

Re: ipfw and ssh

2006-04-05 Thread Ean Kingston
You neglected to include the 'add' in your first fwcmd.

You may want to try something simple to start with. I haven't used ipfw in a 
while so hopefully my syntax is still good. Here is a simple starting point:

# Allow person SSH access
mip=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx   # IP Address of person
${fwcmd} add allow tcp from ${mip} to me 22 in  # allow connection to ssh
${fwcmd} add allow tcp from me 22 to ${mip} out # allow me to respond 

I think all you really need is this:

# Allow setup of incoming ssh
${fwcmd} add pass tcp from ${mip} to ${ip} 22 setup

Since the rest of it should be taken care of by the rest of the 'client' ipfw 
setup.

Re: ipfw and ssh

2006-04-05 Thread Anthony M. Agelastos
Thank you for your very prompt reply. I tried your suggestion and it  
didn't work. I do not know why. Is the location where I place this in  
the client profile important?


I have also tried the person's actual IP address as well as the IP  
address of the router (just in case it is not doing something weird)  
to no avail.


What is the easiest way of making changes to the firewall rules and  
applying them so I do not have to reboot each time? I assume a  
kldunload ipfw.ko and then a kldload ipfw.ko should do it, but I  
don't want to risk doing something incorrect while I am trying to  
debug my current problem.

I see two reasons that egress sshd traffic will not match the above
