 Subject: finding BSD Unix users
 
 
 
 So . . . does anyone here have any suggestions for how I might go about
 finding BSD Unix users somewhat local to me?  Since there isn't a group
 already that I can find, I wonder if there are enough people interested
 in such a thing in this area to build a users group.  Any suggestions for
 how to go about finding fellow BSD Unix users in my area would be
 appreciated, I'm sure.

A house with a big back deck, a big grill with a full propane tank, and a
large cooler full of ice and beer will go a long, long way towards finding
fellow BSD Unix users.  Put an advert on the bulletin board of your
local community college and start your own group.

linux-flashplugin-7.0 freezes firefox - weird fix included

linuxpluginwrapper-20051113_8
  
   There's a reason the latest version of this available in ports
  is dated over two years ago: it's no longer the correct tool.
   Instead, use www/nspluginwrapper.  (Pay attention to the
  post-install messages.)
  

I see, I must have missed that message. After removing
linuxpluginwrapper and running nspluginwrapper everything seems to run
just fine.

Thanks a lot

So, where you live, climate seems to be hot. Spring is cold this year in

Re: Sound card problem

2008-04-08 Thread Sébastien Morand
Hi,

I don't really ge an anwser to my own question, but I get a solution
to have my sound card working: use OSS and it's automatically
detected. My steps:
- Remove envy24ht from loader.conf
- Install oss (src required)
- Enable oss un rc.conf at boot time

dsp* devices are created, my sound card is dsp or dsp0. It's working
fine and I can manage the sound.

If you want to delete a non-empty folder, you have to use the recursive
option (see rm(1))

rm -r folder-name

should do the job.

network configuration problem

2008-04-08 Thread Johannes-Maria Kaltenbach

Hello,

at the moment I'm using internet an emails via a 56k modem and ppp.
I want to change to DSL -- but I'm not able to do it without help.

I've bought a router/gateway from my provider (Telekom/T-Online)
which is called Speedport W 502V Typ A an has the ip address
192.168.2.1; it is connectet to an ethernet card (rl0).

The provider requests DHCP, but this doesn't work; I get the message

| Bogus domain search list 15: Speedport_W_502V_Typ_A (Speedport_W_502V_Typ_A)
| Invalid lease option - ignoring offer

several times and the error message Network is unreachable.

Then I assigned an address (e. g. 192.168.10.1) to the ethernet card
with the help of

ifconfig rl0 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0

and made it the default route:

route add default 192.168.10.1

output of ifconfig:

With firefox http://192.168.2.1; (to get the configuration menu of
the speedport) I get the error message:

| The connection was refused when attempting to contact 192.168.2.1.

and with telnet:

| Trying 192.168.2.1...
| telnet: connect to address 192.168.2.1: No route to host
| telnet: Unable to connect to remote host


What I'm doing wrong?
Can you please help me?

Thanks,
Johannes-Maria


P. S.: I'm using  FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE. (That's the only operating
system on my pc, so I cannot test or configure the speedport with
Linux or MS-Windows.)

192.168.2.1/24 is in a different network than 192.168.10.1/24. Your

route add default 192.168.10.1


You essentially gave yourself an address outside of the gateways LAN 
address scope, and then proceeded to route all unknown traffic to yourself.


You probably want:

# ifconfig rl0 192.168.2.100 255.255.255.0

...and

# route add default 192.168.2.1

Then, for name resolution:

Large file system creation

2008-04-08 Thread Brian McCann
Hi all.  I'm trying to create a ~9TB partition on a new file server.
I thought FreeBSD now supported this (I'm on 7.0), but I can't figure
it out.  I go into sysinstall, create the partition in fdisk using A
= Use Entire Disk), write it to disk, exit sysinstall and re-run
it...and sysinstall doesn't show what it showed before I exited last
time.

Can someone shed some light on what I'm doing wrong here?

Thanks,

The filesystem (UFS2) supports disks larger than 2TB, but fdisk(8) and
bsdlabel(8) (which are what sysinstall uses to partition the disk) do not
support disks larger than 2TB due to limitations in the on-disk format they
use.

You will need to use gpt(8) instead to partition your disk.
This cannot be done from sysinstall and you normally cannot boot from
a gpt(8)-partitioned disk due to lack of support in the BIOS of most PC.

I've installed last weekend a 7.0R, did portsnap fetch/extract and fired
up my script to run in BATCH mode through the ~200 ports I wanted have
installed on the box; when I came back late night and was hoping all
went fine, some of the ports failed as well with gio-fam-backend; it
took me some time to go to /usr/ports/devel/glib20, deinstall and
install it fresh which changed it from glib-2.14.2 to 2.16.x (don't know
the x from the top of my head now); after this all was fine again;

really, I did not understand how this was possible after portsnap
fetch/extract on a real new system, just installed from boot CD;

Re: Grand Omission from WebSite

http://www.freebsd.org/applications.html
which contains a link self-described as packages collection which
takes you to the OS distribution page, unrelated to packages.
Entering package or packages into the (sic) search engine each


install ports and view /usr/ports/INDEX


yield a null result.  It is a crying shame that one of the most unique

Hello,

at the moment I'm using internet an emails via a 56k modem and ppp.
I want to change to DSL -- but I'm not able to do it without help.

I've bought a router/gateway from my provider (Telekom/T-Online)
which is called Speedport W 502V Typ A an has the ip address
192.168.2.1; it is connectet to an ethernet card (rl0).

The provider requests DHCP, but this doesn't work; I get the message

| Bogus domain search list 15: Speedport_W_502V_Typ_A (Speedport_W_502V_Typ_A)
| Invalid lease option - ignoring offer

several times and the error message Network is unreachable.

Then I assigned an address (e. g. 192.168.10.1) to the ethernet card
with the help of

ifconfig rl0 192.168.10.1 255.255.255.0


You need to setup your IP on the same subnet as your router,  Check the 
documentation on your router and choose an address NOT given as a DHCP 
address.


Many routers start their DHCP pool at 100, so you could try:
ifconfig rl0 192.168.2.10 255.255.255.0

Then:

route add default 192.168.2.1

This would work as long as the 192.168.2.10 is outside the DHCP pool.

-Derek





and made it the default route:

route add default 192.168.10.1

   Can someone shed some light on what I'm doing wrong here?
  

  The filesystem (UFS2) supports disks larger than 2TB, but fdisk(8) and
  bsdlabel(8) (which are what sysinstall uses to partition the disk) do not
  support disks larger than 2TB due to limitations in the on-disk format they
  use.

  You will need to use gpt(8) instead to partition your disk.
  This cannot be done from sysinstall and you normally cannot boot from
  a gpt(8)-partitioned disk due to lack of support in the BIOS of most PC.

 If you use X, then doing something along the line of export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

You're going to need a kernel debugger.  The developers handbook has
information:

http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/developers-handbook/kerneldebug.html

You might also try upgrading to 6.3 since it's unlikely we'll do an
errata to fix this for 6.2.

My guess would be that you're seeing a bug related to multicast and
mDNSResponderPosix, but it could be something else.

depends of block sized and inode counts.

it will be most likely large 32K blocks, so quick fsck and little RAM

Re: network configuration problem

2008-04-08 Thread Johannes-Maria Kaltenbach
Hello,

many thanks for your help.

The problem was already solved with the first answer I read
by Steve Bertrand,
...
 You essentially gave yourself an address outside of the gateways LAN
 address scope, and then proceeded to route all unknown traffic to yourself.

 You probably want:

 # ifconfig rl0 192.168.2.100 255.255.255.0

 ...and

 # route add default 192.168.2.1

Tanks also for your hint:

 Then, for name resolution:

 # echo nameserver ip.of.isp.dns  /etc/resolv.conf


I'm also thankful for all the other replies to my question, of course;
always happy to learn something.


Regards,
Johannes-Maria

 would be the command to delete
 the user?

If you have root,   then run  vipw(8).
Look at the entry of the user you want to delete.  It will list the
home directory for that user.

Presuming you want to remove everything about that user:
 - First delete everything in the home directory.   
 - The user's mail inbox is likely to be in /var/mail/USERID.
 - There may be a crontab file.
   Check that with   crontab -u USERID -l If there is nothing there
   don't worry about it.

 - and then usefind(1)  to find all the remaining files and directories 
   owned by that id.   rm them if you want to.   If any of them are files
   that other account also use, you may have to think out deleting them.

Once you have removed all the files you want to, then go back
to vipw and delete the entry from the password file.   vipw will
manage both the  /etc/passwd   and   /etc/master.passwd   as well as
the system password database  correctly for you.
Don't try to edit /etc/passwd  or  /etc/master.passwd directly.

Of course, you can easily write a script in your choice of favorite
language (sh, csh, Perl, etc) to do all this and all you have to do
is enter in the user id.  Probably there are some out there already,
maybe even something in the base system.   But, I delete ids so rarely
that I have always done it by hand and not bothered to look.

i use static arp on my network.

all existing computers are set in with arp -f /etc/ethers

and interface has STATICARP option set.

trying to use unused IP address doesn't work - as should

BUT trying to use allocated IP address with MAC out of the list - 
surprisingly works.


more strange - when i ping such computer - i get 2 response (normal+DUP)

how to make it completely work?

The console will not show UTF-8 filenames, though they are stored normally.
If you use X, then doing something along the line of export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
before startx will allow you to see the filenames normally from an X
terminal.




You will still be able to see the filenames when connected via ssh from 
a terminal program that supports UTF8 (like e.g. Putty from a Windows

no way to see them directly from FreeBSD's text console.

Derek does have an important point.

If you ever need to add any other workstations to the network, you will 
want to ensure that the IP you added to FreeBSD manually does not fall 
within the DHCP scope of the gateway.


For instance, if you plug a Windows PC into the gateway, it will by

   Can someone shed some light on what I'm doing wrong here?
  
  
 
  The filesystem (UFS2) supports disks larger than 2TB, but fdisk(8) and
  bsdlabel(8) (which are what sysinstall uses to partition the disk) do not
  support disks larger than 2TB due to limitations in the on-disk format
 they
  use.
 
  You will need to use gpt(8) instead to partition your disk.
 

  or don't partition at all




  This cannot be done from sysinstall and you normally cannot boot from
  a gpt(8)-partitioned disk due to lack of support in the BIOS of most PC.
 

  or use old disk, pendrive, DVD-ROM etc. for booting

If you ever need to add any other workstations to the network, you will want

For instance, if you plug a Windows PC into the gateway, it will by default 
request an address via DHCP. If the gateway provides the Windows PC the same 
address as FreeBSD, you will have communication problems.


It's neater and safer to keep static and dynamic addresses in separate 
ranges, but often not strictly necessary.


DHCP servers are supposed to ping an address before assuming it's 
unused.  That normally means you can get away with manually allocating 
IP addresses inside a DHCP range.  Unless some well-meaning person has 
blocked all ICMP, or disabled the DHCP server's ping address check.

 I've installed last weekend a 7.0R, did portsnap fetch/extract and fired
 up my script to run in BATCH mode through the ~200 ports I wanted have
 installed on the box; when I came back late night and was hoping all
 went fine, some of the ports failed as well with gio-fam-backend; it
 took me some time to go to /usr/ports/devel/glib20, deinstall and
 install it fresh which changed it from glib-2.14.2 to 2.16.x (don't know
 the x from the top of my head now); after this all was fine again;
 
 really, I did not understand how this was possible after portsnap
 fetch/extract on a real new system, just installed from boot CD;

Seems to me there might have been a problem with the port.

I noticed that gio-fam-backend had been updated to 2.16.3, ran portsnap and it 
then installed without problem. No other intervention required. I'm running 
portupgrade -a again now with no problems so far.

Thanks all for the responses.

Supermicro motherboard compatibility/Server recommendation help

2008-04-08 Thread Eric Zimmerman

can anyone speak to successes with using the newed Supermicro server
boards with FreeBSD? i was looking at things like this:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/4U/7045/SYS-7045A-CT.cfm

On-Board Devices
Chipset 

* Intel® 5100 (San Clemente) chipset
* Intel® ICH9R + PXH-V

SATA

* Intel ICH9R SB SATAII Controller
* RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 support (Windows only)
* RAID 0, 1, 10 support (Linux)


Does FreeBSD support that SATA controller for various RAID setups?

Does anyone have any suggestions for a vendor that provides barebones
servers (tower models) with hot swap SATA drives included?

Thanks,

requesting 'QA' assistance

2008-04-08 Thread Jim Stapleton
I have something I'd like to add to ports eventually, but it isn't
read yet. I was wondering what the preferred method of requesting
users take a peek at it and tell me what they think/want.

The actual software would go under ports-mgmt, and has the main
functionality intended. The actuall set of programs is called 'virtual
ports', and it allows a keyword and virtual directory indexing of the
ports tree. The goal is to allow people to play around with different
designs of the ports tree without having to change the system ports
tree - preventing breakage in programs, and giving both the users and
maintainers of the ports tree more flexibility in organization.

Should I post the tbz file on my web server, and post a link on a
mailing list, or post the copied/pasted shar to the mailing list
(466kb, so I'm guessing /no/ to that one).

Should I post here or to -ports?

Since you mention one character, it should actually be starting with 'From '

Hi all.  I'm trying to create a ~9TB partition on a new file server.
 I thought FreeBSD now supported this (I'm on 7.0), but I can't figure
 it out.  I go into sysinstall, create the partition in fdisk using A
 = Use Entire Disk), write it to disk, exit sysinstall and re-run
 it...and sysinstall doesn't show what it showed before I exited last
 time.

 Can someone shed some light on what I'm doing wrong here?


   
The filesystem (UFS2) supports disks larger than 2TB, but fdisk(8) and
bsdlabel(8) (which are what sysinstall uses to partition the disk) do not
support disks larger than 2TB due to limitations in the on-disk format
   they
use.
   
You will need to use gpt(8) instead to partition your disk.
   
  
or don't partition at all
  
  
  
  
This cannot be done from sysinstall and you normally cannot boot from
a gpt(8)-partitioned disk due to lack of support in the BIOS of most PC.
   
  
or use old disk, pendrive, DVD-ROM etc. for booting

Setting CPUTYPE and CFLAGS in make.conf

2008-04-08 Thread David Allen
The advice I've read in several posts on the subject involve everything
from setting one, setting both, to ignoring both, sometimes with the =?
notation and sometimes without.  And then, I've read comments that suggest
when compiling the kernel, for example, both are ignored, and default
values (tucked away somewhere) are always applied.  IIRC, the handbook
recommends at least setting CPUTYPE.

My question isn't a holy grail type of quest for maximised performance,
but concerns the meaning of those settings with respect to
building world, building kernel and anything in ports.  Put another way,
I'm not a computer science major, but do have different systems that I
compile for, and I'd like to have a better understand WTF I'm really doing.

For example, what is the difference, if any, between a binary compiled
with:

CPUTYPE=opteron
CFLAGS=-O -pipe

compares with compiling it using:

CPUTYPE=pentium3
CFLAGS=

compares with compiling it using what I think are the universal defaults
of:

CPUTYPE=
CFLAGS=-O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe

that get applied if the make.conf is blank?  Can the resulting binary be
run on each other's system?  Or is it simply optimised to run on one,
versus another?  Or are those settings relevant to the compilation process
only?  Or to both the compilation process and the actual performance of
the binary?  Or should I be taking the dog for a nice long walk instead of
watching scrolling compiler output? ;-)

If someone could take a moment to explain in moderately technical terms
what all the above means, or suggest a source for further reading, I'd be
grateful.

Actually, the mail that is in /var/mail/chris gets moved to 
/home/chris/mbox


Before it gets moved, it does not have this placeholder header.  It only 
has the headers of e-mail sent since the last time mail was checked and 
moved to the mbox file.


Also, none of headers in the mbox have the chicken lips  not even the 
first one that I posted.


Wouldn't these issues be rectified if I deleted the mbox file and started 
from scratch?

It looks like you have some Greater-Thans ('')  stuck in there.

I think perhaps the Linux users who say those things are just trying to get

 If for some incomprehensible reason a laptop doesn't work then the answer
 is going to be specific to the brand/model of UPS you have.
 

grins I have 2 of those, and both in use... Plus, she can't use a
keyboard yet, so I don't want clutter- the unit will be hidden away, and
only screen will be seen by the child (ATM anyway). And, again, costs
are an issue...

I don't have one yet, but I was hoping someone might have a suggestion
as to which one might be capable of switching off the audio alert.

Re: Why are some linux users saying that FreeBSD is dying

2008-04-08 Thread Edward Capriolo
It would be helpful if you provided a  URL for the article. I do not
think they mean that FreeBSD systems are dying in terms of crashing or
uptime. They might mean that the Free BSD community is not growing as
fast or staying as active as the Linux community.

Screen inside Jails + su

2008-04-08 Thread Wael Nasreddine
Hello,

I have a FreeBSD server which is Jails based, I have created a special
jail to run 3 rTorrent process for 3 users, I made all the permissions
and added the users, then I launched manually (for testing purpose)
these screen sessions for the 3 users using the below method:
- jexec onto the jail.
- su to the user: su -l wael
- run a detached screen: screen -dmS Rtorrent
  I have a .screenrc for each user in place to run one command,
  rtorrent

Now I have 2 questions:
1) How can I add this procedure to the jail startup??
2) I can't attach the screen, everytime I try to I get an error:
 # su -l wael
 % screen -Dr Rtorrent
 Cannot open your terminal '/dev/ttyp6' - please check.
  What's going on? why can't I attach the screen session ??

Thanks :)

I've got a couple of cheap APC models (RS500). You can turn off all 
their alert signals using the apcupsd ( sysutils/apcupsd)  program ( 
which is of course used for automatic shutdowns). The setting is stored 
in UPS memory (probably flash or EEPROM) and is retained. This is good 
actually, since one of these is pretty close to my bedroom ;)

 In response to Jim Stapleton [EMAIL PROTECTED]:
 
  I have something I'd like to add to ports eventually, but it isn't
  read yet. I was wondering what the preferred method of requesting
  users take a peek at it and tell me what they think/want.
  
  The actual software would go under ports-mgmt, and has the main
  functionality intended. The actuall set of programs is called 'virtual
  ports', and it allows a keyword and virtual directory indexing of the
  ports tree. The goal is to allow people to play around with different
  designs of the ports tree without having to change the system ports
  tree - preventing breakage in programs, and giving both the users and
  maintainers of the ports tree more flexibility in organization.
  
  Should I post the tbz file on my web server, and post a link on a
  mailing list, or post the copied/pasted shar to the mailing list
  (466kb, so I'm guessing /no/ to that one).
  
  Should I post here or to -ports?
 
 My opinion would be make a .tgz of the port directory and put it on
 a web/ftp server somewhere, then post a link to the ports mailing list
 asking folks to look at it and provide feedback.
 
 Yes, a 466K shar file posted to the mailing list is going to tick a lot
 of people off ;)

.shar, .shar.gz, .tgz - whatever, put it somewhere and post a link to
it on ports@ which is the best place for it.
