 Waht's wrong and how to remedy?

I found that portugrade was trying to upgrade qt4-rcc or moc on my 
machines before it upgraded their only dependency, qt4-qmake. I updated 
that and then everything worked just fine.

Re: portupgrade broken, and apr won't build

 Hiya all

 Something weird going on with portypgrade (and maybe ports in
 general) here.  Somewhere between last months upgrade and this month,
 portupgrade has started to ignore ports that are reported by
 portversion as needing upgrading.  The result is I have to force each
 one, one at a time.  Big schlep.

 For example

  portversion -v | grep samba

 samba-3.0.35,1needs updating (port has 3.0.36,1)

  portupgrade -vr samba

 The other thing is that devel/apr will not build.  The make stops
 with this

  checking for library containing strerror... none required
  checking whether system uses EBCDIC... no

  ./configure: 9753: Syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ))

  *** Error code 1

  Stop in /usr/ports/devel/apr.

 I cvsup every Monday morning.  I tried the upgrades last week but got
 these failures and decided to wait a week and see if there are fixes.
 Apparently not.  I also had to manually fix the openssl distfile
 (missing MD5 and SH256) so that it would actually download the
 missing patch and confirm it.  I have never had so much trouble with
 the port system, who broke it? -:

 Any ideas?

My experience with portupgrade problems like this is that your INDEX-? and 
INDEX-?.db aren't being created properly after cvsuping. Portversion doesn't 
depend on them but portupgrade does. The INDEX-? that you download is always 
out of date. I use p5-FreeBSD-Portindex to keep them incrementally up todate, 
which is much faster then building the INDEX from scratch.

After awhile, you have a mess and things don't build because the dependencies 
haven't been built.

  Unless things have changed very recently, KDE4 is in its own directory
  folder.  This may imply that KDE3 and KDE4 can coexist.
 
  As always, YMMV.

 I was looking for something a little more definitive, like I upgraded like
 this, and here's the problems I ran into.

 I don't want to run KDE3 and KDE4 side by side.  I want to migrate from
 the former to the latter.

There are features that haven't made it to kde4 such as koffice. I added 
OpenOffice but that can be a long compile. One of my favorite sites crashes 
konqueror, which wasn't a problem on kde3. I left my slower machine, which I 
use for e-mail, and web browsing running kde3 and play with kde4 on my system 
that can do a portupgrade -pfR kde4 in 7 hours and build OO in less than 2 
hours. It is running kde-4.3 now and it has been recursively rebuilt. The 
browser crash is still there. I can use the packages of common ports to 
update the slower machine. They are on a 4-port kvm and it is too easy to 
simply use the machine that works the best.

You have to include the actual error messages. The error 1 is just telling you 
that you had an error. You have scbus, da, and miibus, which are the most 
common errors that I see. I didn't see anything else. Post the error messages 
and maybe some one will see what you did wrong.

You should probably include a uname -a.

There is the -L option for pkgdb, which fixes lost dependencies. I ran it on a

May be Kent Stewart wright, cose http://dumpz.org/10103/. I try compile the 
my kernel whith the all SCSI peripherals uncomment. 

You need to add the error messages. You got stdout and what was wrong was 
still missing.

I have a script that I use to do a build[world, kernel] that 
uses /var/log/build. I added build to ..\log. It does nothing more than

make buildkernel KERNCONF=FREEBSD1 21 | 
tee /var/log/build/bkernel-`date +%Y%m%d-%H%M`.log

It leaves a complete log everytime I build a kernel. Your options would be 
different and I also use csh.

Re: Can't boot 7.2-RELEASE i386 or AMD64 on an Abit KV8 Pro motherboard with Sempron 3100+ CPU

2009-06-20 Thread Kent Stewart

 Hi,

 As the subject says, I can't get the 7.2-RELEASE i386 CD to boot on a
 system that has:

 Abit KV8 Pro (K8T800P-8237-6A7L1A1BC-26) motherboard with the most recent
 BIOS - BIOS release 26 4/20/2007
 (
 http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NA
ME=KV8+ProfMTYPE=Socket+754)

 An AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8Ghz CPU

 1 Gb RAM

 An ATI 1050 256mb AGP video card

 I think I have turned off everything ACPI related in the BIOS setup.

 When I boot the i386 ISO, the kernel boots to the point of probing the PCI
 bus and then hangs completely, even the keyboard is locked up.

 I've unplugged all the disks, so the only things in the system are the CD
 drive, the floppy drive, and the video card.

 I have turned off acpi at boot time, and when I boot the i386 ISO
 verbosely, the last few lines the kernel spews are:

 pci_open(1): mode 1 addr port (0x0cf8) is 0x8000c060
 pci_open(1a): mode1res=0x8000 (0x8000)
 pci_cfgcheck: device 0 [class=06] [hdr=80] is there (id=02821106)
 pcibios: BIOS version 2.10
 pcib0: MPTable Host-PCI bridge pcibus 0 on motherboard
 pci0: PCI Bus on pcib0
 pci0: domain=0, physical bus=0

 There's no PCI cards plugged in, just the AGP video card.


 When I try booting the AMD64 ISO, the boot loader runs, I get the boot
 menu, and regardless of what boot options I give the kernel, I get the
 message CPU doesn't support long mode and then I get the OK prompt.


 I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a h/w problem, it'll boot and install
 Fedora 11, Win2K, WinXP, and runs every DOS based diagnostic app I can find
 with no problems.

 Anyone have any suggestions, or should I file a PR?

Did you follow the suggestion on the release announcement of using the other 
CDs and switching before you start the install.

Kent

 Thanks!

 Hello,

  If you want udbp(4) you have to know that it requires netgraph(4).
 They are both available as modules and/or kernel config options
 (actually udbp(4) is a device :) ).

If that is all it takes, then, I think that GENERIC should mention 
the options NETGRAPH as a requirement for udbp. There are numerous places 
with requires miibus as a comment because a device won't compile without 
it. A commented line has often been there because it was a work in progress 
such as ULE was for what seems like years or broken for unknown reasons. 
GENERIC was always self documenting.

An alternative is to pkg_delete it and then reinstall it with portupgrade. The

 Any ideas?


I had a motherboard that would do this. If I killed power to the system for 
~15 seconds, it would go back to accepting everything. What I though was 
wrong was the controller developed a problem and if I cut the power to the 
system such that the system voltages bled off, it would go back to accepting 
ata66 cables.

You have optimization options on the compile line that I don't have on my

 Hi Kent,

 Thank you for replying.

 The fact is that:

 1. I have never used any optimizations ever since I started using FreeBSD
 2. This is a new box, and there is no /etc/make.conf as yet

 The only things I have done on this box (a Dell SC1435) is to install, csup
 (src, ports) and buildworld.
 I was just gonna do the kernel, then start doing the other stuff after the
 system updates.

 Your guess is wrong:-)

Yes, you are right. I cvsuped and rebuilt my system and it died at the same 
spot.

Re: make installworld fails on RELEASE6.4 amd64

2009-03-15 Thread Kent Stewart
On Sunday 15 March 2009 01:31:24 am Olivier Nicole wrote:
 Hi,

  I am facing a problem that I cannot solve when trying to reinstall
  wolrd on 6.4 amd 64.

 More about this issue.

 RELEASE_6.4 i386 is imune of this problem.

 I did a make -d A installworld and it seems that it is all about
 /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot2/machine.

 It's a link to /usr/src/sys/i386/include. This directory is created at
 the first installation of FreeBSD.

 When CMOS clock is the wall clock and when one is located ahead of UTC
 (Thailand is UTC+7), during the first installation of a distribution,
 the machine boots with UTC=CMOS clock, hence creating the directory
 hierarchy 7 hours ahead of time.

 The link /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot2/machine is created by
 make buildworld, after the first boot of the newly installed system,
 after the time zone has been set, so it is created with the right
 time.

 If one does an installworld between the 7 hours interval, when
 installing /usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot2, it detects that the directory
 /usr/src/sys/i386/include pointed by
 /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot2/machine is newer than the objects
 being installed, and it tries to rebuild the object.

 My wild guess is that on i386, make installworld looks at the
 modification date of the link
 /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot2/machine; while on amd64 make
 installworld looks at the modification date of the directory
 /usr/src/sys/i386/include pointed by the link. Hence the different
 behaviour.

 This is annoying for people leaving ahead of UTC, that will install a
 new distribution, cvsup the release, build and installworld, during
 the interval of 7 hours. I think that users behing UTC will not be
 affected.

 What I did is: during the installation of the distrubition I set back
 the CMOS clock to UTC time, and when FreeBSD was done installing from
 the CD, I reset the CMOS clock to the wall clock. It worked, but it's
 not very nice.


What you did is not necessary if you adjkerntz -i when you boot to single 
user mode.

 I am curious to have experts opinion on the different behaviour of
 make regarding the modification date of the link
 /usr/obj/usr/src/sys/boot/i386/boot2/machine.

 Best regards,

 Olivier

I have always felt that good web programming took that into account. When I

 There is something about the content of the text within the variable $test

 Any pointers would be helpful.

Well, it might be because test is a command line function.

 Up to now when such a hang occured, I just waited and waited and

 But, is there a safe way to do a retry?
 I dare not just do a Ctrl-C and issue

 Or is it save to do Ctrl-C and try again?

It should be safe to do the Ctrl-c. You are doing a fetch. What can go wrong? 
If you only have a partial distfile, and portupgrade can't handle that, at 
the worst, you cd /usr/ports/distfiles, remove the partial file, and try 
again. Things only get messy if you kill a job during an install. Since 
nothing has been added to the port database, you can probably just install it 
again.

I did a portupgrade -FN rdiff-backup-1.2.6,1 and was able to download the 
distfile. I only saw 18KBps, which I assume means there are a other people 
doing a fetch from that site.

   Make absolutely sure your environment has no extraneous cruft
   from earlier builds. This is simple enough.
   # chflags -R noschg /usr/obj/usr
   # rm -rf /usr/obj/usr
   # cd /usr/src
   # make cleandir
   # make cleandir
 
  I had tried cleaning build tree as described above and building
  again. It was of no help.

 Here are the steps I followed.

 1. Cleaned up using following script clean.sh

 -
- chflags -R noschg /usr/obj/usr
 rm -rf /usr/obj/usr
 cd /usr/src
 make cleandir
 make cleandir
 -
- 2. Cvsup latest sources using cvsup -g -L 2 /etc/supfile
 (attached).


I have never found the cleandir to be useful when you do it more than 
once. If you rm -rf src you have done the ultimate cleandir. 
Considering all of the things you have tried, why don't you switch your 
cvsup mirror. They get out of whack once in awhile. I have been using 
cvsup8 and it is keeping up with the ports. I am starting a build to 
see if it has any problems but I don't expect any. If your port tree is 
current and your docs tree is current, you can expect your source tree 
to also be current.

Re: Does anyone know how to get the required downloads from Sun to build Java?

 It appears as if jdk 1.5 is now at version 14, but the FreeBSD ports

 Luckily, Sun is run by a bunch of Nazis, and doesn't use a standard

 I can't figure out how to get the version 13 stuff off their site, and
 thus I can't build OpenOffice.org for my shiny, new laptop ...

 Does anyone have any advice on how to get the required files from Sun?

When you try to build any of the ports they supply you with a URL and the 
files you need to get the source. For most of them, you need an account that 
you have to login to but the account is free. The problem right now is that 
1.6 on Windows is the only one I have seen where the applet cache problem has 
been fixed. I have a number of machines that have software that gets confused 
when 1.6 has been installed and the only detect and upgrade option from 
www.java.com is to upgrade to 1.6.

I tried to install jdk*1.6 on FreeBSD 6-stable and it dies. I haven't looked 
into it. The security notice was serious enough that I switched my browsing 
to a machine that doesn't have the security problems.

means something in your source is newer than what it created in the

 Hi,

 (I originally posted this on the freebsd-gnome mailing list and then

 I am currently using FreeBSD 6.2 RELEASE and I am trying to install
 gnome2-office via the ports collection.  After running 'portsnap
 fetch update' I 'make install clean' in the gnome2-office directory.
 It goes well until:

 please advise, suggest, or comment on how I should proceed?  It seems
 that I can't install the new libgda unless I delete the old one, but
 I am prevented from deleting the old one because at least three other
 programs are dependent upon it.

 (As an aside, is it okay to run these installations from a terminal
 window from inside the Gnome GUI environment, or should I be outside
 of Gnome altogether when I do program installations/upgrades?)

Re: can't `make index` on 4.11-STABLE

 Hi,

 I have a problem trying to `make index` on a machine running
 4.11-STABLE after cvsup-ing the ports tree.

The port tree is no longer supported for anything less than version 
5-stable. The last working tag is RELEASE_4_EOL.


 I'll paste the error in below. It is with a multimedia package. If it
 makes any difference, I don't need any multimedia on this computer.

 Alternately, any links to a howto about ugrading this to 6 STABLE
 would be appreciated.

Going from 4.x to 6.x, you are probably much better off doing a clean 
install. Change the HDs from ufs to ufs2. Without the clean install, 
you have too much crufty stuff left behind, such as the thread change. 
In addition, there was a massive change at 5.1 +/- that building and 
installing in the wrong order would leave your system unusable. I think 
you could recover with the fixit disk but doing a clean install 
bypasses all of the problems :). 

I don't think going to 6.x is supported, so, going to 5-stable and then 
6-stable will take a lot of time. Even a 6.2-release CD has the old 
version of xorg on it and rebuilding everything to 7.2 is a massive 
enterprise.

Install 6.2 and get all of the packages from freebsd.org.

Kent

 Your system's definitely fubar'ed. touch should be found immediately
 unless /bin isn't in $PATH.



 Touch isn't needed in a good installworld. This usually means your
 system date is seriously off. If you use local clock in your cmos,
 you need to adjkerntz -i when you boot to single user.

This is also one of the reasons why adjkerntz -i was added to the single

 and cp important directories or individual files onto the new HD.

 It turned out that / was the only one trashed but backup files
 of /etc , /home/user's, and all of the port tarballs were ok.

One thing I forgot and that was the disappearance of the all HDs. You 
could cold boot and they were there. The system would panic and it 
would ask for a floppy to boot from. 

You could cold boot and fsck the HDs, reboot and it would run for a 
little bit and then go into the panic and HDs not there loop. It did 
this until it trashed ad0 and sh quit loading.

I would lay odds that I could have used the power supply tester and the 
ps would test ok until it got under a load and shutdown. I had a ps do 
the same thing a couple of months ago but it didn't make HDs disappear. 
The system would just shutdown unexpectedly. I never made it to a 
buildworld and have it die with a signal 11. Without a load, the ps 
would test ok. 

A friend who services computers told me that, in his experience, the 
pses are typically only lasting 3 years and that I should expect more

My experience is that -arp will build all of the ports from source that

using the generic a.

On the slow machine, I wouldn't use pkg_add but portupgrade -Pa. There 
are some ports that you can't build packages and have to build from the 
source. So, if you have a package in /usr/ports/packages/All, 
portupgrade will use it but if you need to build it from source, it 
will also do that.

 A probably-better way to fix the vulnerabilities of Mozilla is to
 switch to the newest version, which is now called Seamonkey.

  I am sure I would have occasion to use others if I knew what and
  where they were.

 Also in the ports man page.  Other targets also avoid brute-force
 removal of files, like rmconfig.

Try using fastest_cvsup and you can see what kind of response the 
servers are providing. I did a 
fastest_cvsup -c us
and it showed at 1837 UTC that 1 and 3 were at the limit and cvsup6 is 
probably down.

They update from the master on the hour and you need to wait 10-15 
minutes for the update to finish. There isn't any magic time where they 
all work but you can find one closer to the next update where you get 
through almost all of the time.

 CUPS, so I recompiled the whole of KDE making sure that x11/kdelibs3
 had the flag -DWITHOUT_CUPS. With this flag, KDE runs /usr/bin/lpr

Sort of backwards, it uses the /usr/local/bin/lpr that cups-base

is a fix that lofi sent to me early this morning.

 My boot.ini looks like this:

The only difference is I called it bootsect.bsd to make it look like 
everything else. Could you have somehow copied it badly. I always have 
a machine running and did a binary ftp to the local machine and then 
renamed to to the *.bsd.

Check your system date. Almost everytime that make thinks it needs to 
use touch is due to the date on the computer being off.

I run local time and have to use adjkerntz -i to set the local time 
zone.

If your date is way off like it looks, you have to update it and then 
rebuild so that everything is current. You don't have any idea what 
wasn't built because it was thought to be current.

Look at the date of the kernel in /boot. That was the time it was last

You have to agree to the license and you probably have batch=yes turned

 using single-user mode is less than the price you pay for doing it
 remotely *and* having it fail.


It wasn't too far into the upgrade process from 6.0 to 6.1 that my boot1 
got out of step and would cause a freeze during the boot. I could 
revert kernel.old back to kernel and then, I could figure out what was 
wrong. It was a multi-boot system and the version of boot1 on my 
c-drive was really old. Once I copied the new boot1 onto my c-drive, I 
didn't have any problems. It could have easily been something else that 
caused a panic at boot. The boot to single user mode is to reduce the 
frequency of that occuring; however, I find each system has quirks and 
if you take the chance, you may find a surprise waiting for you.

The current gigabit if_re can panic at boot. If you reboot, it 
frequently will boot successfully. If not, you have to power down and 
then boot. It has always booted after the power down. There is a pr on 
the problem but nothing has been done about it.

As you said, the price for doing it right, is often much less than 
scrambling to fix something that totally fails. A long time ago, I 
found that designing around the failures cost less in the long run than 
taking shortcuts that only saved time until something happened and your 
system was down for hours.

That is all one line but kmail is folding it. Also, the 5.5-release is

I didn't check to see which set of packages are more recent. I leave 
that to you to do. It is the kind of process you need to be aware of 
and use the most recent set of builds. Once the 5.5-release is 
finished, the stable set will provide the set closest to what you will 
find after cvsuping ports-all.

Non-boot on RELENG_6 1930 UTC source

2006-03-22 Thread Kent Stewart
I just updated my system with sources available on the mirrors at 11:30 
PST and ended up with a system that wouldn't boot. It would get to the 
point that I chose FreeBSD using ntldr and it just stopped. 

The XP sytem uses an older boot1 to boot FreeBSD. I could use the 
6.0-Release CD fixit option to go back to the system update of 18 March 
and that is what I am using now to send this email.

 Now my question:
 Do i run in trouble if i update my installed packages

 Is it necessary to backup my config files and databases ?
 Or what is the best way to get my apps up to date ?


I find Apache always tries to install a new ../data, so, I always link 
data to a data on a different disk. Then, I unlink data and
ln -sf /usr3/data data
and I am back in business. You have to stop apache and start apache to 
get the new version running.

This is a little bit obscure but you basically didn't follow the generic 
instructions on updating your system. You can get away without doing 
the 
mergemaster -p
most of the time but when you see a message about a missing user or 
group, you have to add them to the appropriate file and carefully 
running mergemaster -p will let you fix the problem.

 I'm one of those masochists who insists on manually building all my

 Typically I upgrade my ports collection with

 then run
 pkg_version -v -L '='

 Then I
 pkg_info -o name-of-each-port
 to find out where the port lives in the ports collection, go there,
 and then use make with whatever custom options I need to upgrade
 it.

 The trouble I have is when one or more of those low-level ports that
 everything else depends on gets upgraded.  I can spend DAYS building
 and rebuilding ports until everything gets built with the most
 current dependencies.
 I'm familiar with the -r and -R switches for pkg_info, and they
 are a huge help in this situation, but I'm wondering if anybody has
 written a script that will take a list of packages to be upgraded,
 examine their dependencies and what depends on them, and then return
 a sorted list of every installed package that should be rebuilt in
 order to keep the dependencies current.

 I don't want something to automate the whole process - just something
 to help me out with determining which ports are affected and what
 order they should be rebuilt in.

 Some of those port management packages must have something like this
 internally.  I guess I could go look there.

I like aliases but they don't work for this. So, I have a shell script 
that does the work for me. I called it pkgreq and it looks like

#! /bin/sh
cd /var/db/pkg
pkg_info -R $1* | more

You pkgreq port-name-of-interest and it returns that ports that use 
the port.

 I have found portmanager to be more intelligent.  When
 you run it it takes a look at all installed ports and
 then it decides what order to upgrade the ports and
 their dependencies.  Portupgrade proceeds linearly and
 you may need to run it a few more times for everything
 to be upgraded.  At least that's how I understand it.

 
But the -rR tells it to look at all of the dependancies and build them 
if they need to be. In addition, if something depends on it, it will 
also build them. 

I don't see any differance.

 Unfortunately without a traceback the panic string is useless since
 it gives you no clue about how the system got into that state.  This

I can cause this to happen almost at will with a Netgear GA311. It only 
happens at boot. It will reboot after the panic just fine and, for me, 
it only happens repeatedly after I do a restart boot from XP. It has 
never happened if I shut the system down first. I have moved many GBs 
of distfiles and packages with out causing a panic.

I haven't found a way to cause a dmp when it panics. At least, what I

I haven't be able to invoke the debugger at the boot panic and even

I also haven't added DDB to the kernel config. I guess I need to first

 Well, if you don't have DDB in your kernel config, you certainly
 won't be able to invoke it when it panics ;-)

hehehe - of course :)

One thing, the developer's handbook only talks about option DDB but 
that won't compile until you have added KDB.

Now, I got it to panic but it took 5 or 6 tries. At will must have 
heard his name and ran away :). However, when I try call doadump it 
says no dump device has been specified. I have dumpdev=AUTO in 
rc.conf but I think this is happening far to early.

All is not lost because I think I have 3-6.3 MP images of the panic and 
the trace back. How can I get a dumpdev that early into the boot? This 
is turning into the pain I thought it would be :).

 Unfortunately I don't think you can.  dumpon(8) says you can set a
 loader variable, but this is just an outdated manpage and that
 facility went away in 2002 (probably something to do with GEOM).
 However, DDB traces should be sufficient.  Since you can reproduce
 this easily, please also turn on INVARIANTS, INVARIANT_SUPPORT, and
 WITNESS.

I forgot to point out that I am not running current but
FreeBSD topaz 6.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.1-PRERELEASE #13: Sun Feb 26 
20:58:16 PST 2006

It also occurs on RELENG_5 but that machine is my gateway and firewall.

It may be trying to confuse me but I have to use the NIC in XP before it 
will panic on the FreeBSD boot. My sacrificial machine only runs 
6-stable and it is much harder to make panic.

I have 3 280+KB images of the panic and traceback. They are

This is a 128Kb DSL line on the upload so it won't be fast. Even 
cropped, the originals were 10MB+. So, they have been made more lossy

  Erm, unless 6.9 is modular (which I didn't think was the case),

 The noticeable difference is that 7.0 takes much more time to compile
 all in all because of its modularity. A German magazine tested both:
 6.9 took 19 minutes and 7.0 75 minutes on their dual Opteron 246
 machine with 2 GB RAM (source: iX 1/2006).

Differences like that usually point out a poor interaction between the 
files and the make process. For example, if you provide the compiler 
with a list of files, you may only have to load the compiler once but 
you can compile many modules. If you use make and load the compiler 
many times, it will take much longer to build a system. 

We had one program that the computer center manager tried to build and 
after 7 hours, he killed the job. It was only half way done. I 
suggested Microsoft's Power Fortran which loaded once and compiled 
many. The MS Fortran compiler completed the build in 2 minutes. It took 
me around 30 minutes to figure out that it had compiled everything. 

MS Power Fortran went on to be DEC's Fortran for PCs and I don't know 
what it called now. CPU speeds and HD speeds were much slower when this 
happened.

Re: make index

 Michael P. Soulier wrote:
  After running CVSup, I've seen people build their index via

  What is the index, and does it really require rebuilding after each
  CVSup?

 The index is a list of all of the ports, what each port depends on,
 who the maintainer is and various other data.  It's used by the 'make
 search' command (see ports(7)) an a few other make targets you can
 invoke from /usr/ports, plus it's used quite extensively by
 portupgrade(8).  Other port maintenance software does not need an
 index file -- generally they work out the dependency relations
 between different packages on the fly.

 You don't need to keep running 'make index' all the time.  Firstly,
 you can download a freshly build index by 'make fetchindex' -- which
 is sufficient for most uses. If you use the new portsnap(1) facility
 instead of cvsup(1), you'll get a freshly built index file included
 automatically.  Or (blowing my own trumpet here...) you can install
 sysutils/p5-FreeBSD-Portindex which gives you a method of
 incrementally updating your index file based on what was modified
 during the previous cvsup session (or however you choose to upgrade
 your ports).


You might wonder what Portindex buys you. You have to appreciate that 
you can cvsup, create an HTML listing to the cvsweb cgi facility using 
a log of the cvsup session, create a new INDEX, and an INDEX.db 
relatively quickly. The process is all automated via a shell script.

A typical time for the entire sequence of processing steps using a local 
cvsup mirror is 2 minutes. I had an occasion to time the script because 
of a recent question on the es.freebsd list. I think that 2 minutes is 
as fast as it will run on my systems and do something.

The network is 1000baseT but that doesn't make cvsup run any faster than 
a 100baseT connection. The port people have been playing with some of 
the make features and that adds 5-10 minutes or so because the cache 
entries needs to be updated for all of the ports that use the make file 
that was modified. Occasionally you have to update the entire cache and 
that process is slower than a make index.

 Hi,

 I have a production server running 4.6-RELEASE and I would like to
 bring it upto date and get 6.0-RELEASE on there.  I have a rough idea
 of what needs to be done to accomplish this from reading various docs
 but it would be nice to see how smoothly it has gone for any others.

There have been major changes in processes such as threads. You also 
have to boot the 5.3 update in single user mode to have a kernel that 
accepts the new arrangement and then install the userland. Before 5.1 
or 5.2 it didn't matter much but there was an fs change that you update 
in single user mode or boot the fix disc to finish the botched update.

You also have the problem that probably none of your ports from 4.x will 
work at 6.0. This could take quite a bit of time to upgrade.

I don't think you can do src upgrade remote unless you have a serial 
console setup. I also think you are better off building new HDs and 
install them in the remote machine.

Kent


  From what I can tell I first need to upgrade to a minimum of
 5.3-RELEASE and then onto 6.0, so I guess doing a cvsup to the
 5.3-RELEASE and then doing buildworld et all?  Then from there to
 same to get to 6.0?

 My main concern is the filesystem, it's been updated since 4.x?  Will
 this mess things up?

 The machine is remote so I really need to make sure this works
 without making it inaccessible.  I have a box here to trial run the
 process on so I get the steps correct first time, but thought I'd ask
 here too. :-)

 I ended up just installing the package, which worked, though
 it required a download of 12MB worth of stuff I don't use.

 I wish it were possible to just ship mplayer with the default

 always have problems with this port and I never use anything

Re: Won't build. 5.4 to 6.0 ...

 Can somebody please help me?

 I've been trying ever since 6.0-RELEASE to upgrade my 5.4-STABLE.


A few weeks back I did the upgrade with 2 or 3 computers. I had problems 
but most of them were upgrading the ports to 6.0 versions. I would 
cvsup, then cd in /usr/src and run make cleandir twice. Then, just to 
make sure everything was clean, I would run cvsup of src-all again.

I would cd /usr/obj and rm -rf *. This gets rid of the last bits from 
the last build and then I did the builds. When I did all of the above, 
I got a build and install on the first try. The only item 
in /etc/make.conf that affects the build was NO_PROFILE=true.

  Boot to single user and fsck your system. It sounds like you have
  some bad sectors. If the fsck removed anything you just added such
  as header files, you could have problems like you saw. FreeBSD will
  do a background fsck but sometimes you need to do it in the
  foreground.

 I think I did one of the fsck in foreground because it was unable
 to repair the file system and asked me to do it manualy; but I'll
 do it again in single user; I also have now fetched sysutils/memtest
 and will stress the memory because the 1st PANIC occured before
 I had build qemu, ie. I don't think that this is related to that
 kernel module itself; after the memtest I'll do a complete reinstall
 from scratch of the 6.0-RELEASE from CD;

Most of the time, it can not repair a file system with serious errors 
when you have it mounted. That is why you boot to single user mode. 
FreeBSD does not tolerate HDs with bad sectors.

You would have to really mess up your install for a reinstall to help. I 
usually joke that a reinstall only helps on Windows :). I always choose 
the typical install because that has been tested the most. You can 
always tweak a working system but you can have problems when you pick 
and choose at the first install.


  With a release, any panic is important. They just don't happen
  unless something is wrong. Portupgrade or portmanage can reduce the
  chances of building modules out of order. If you build them
  manually out of order, problems like the one you saw with neon can
  happen.

 I did not do that, I've just installed 6.0-RELEASE from the
 distribution CD-ROM and after the primary installation procedure I
 went to /usr/ports/x11/kde3 to make the desktop KDE and meanwhile
 that I was copying my files from my home dir of the old notebook
 (only userland files, nothing in kernel) and this gave the first
 PANIC after some hours;

  If it is software, you can back out ports that you load until you
  don't have problems.

 this time after the installation of 6.0-RELEASE I'll only make
 /usr/ports/emulators/qemu to see if I can reproduce the PANIC
 with the above procedure; we will see...

I would still bet on hardware errors but anytime you make a bet you can 
be wrong. When you find what was causing the problem, you can say 
¡Ahh! :).

 I'm not in hurry, because the old notebook is still alive...

I seriously belive in having a back up until everything works. When you 
have a backup and something dies, you still have the back up. One of 
anything can translate in to nothing works when you have trouble. I 
have 3 email addresses and if almost nothing works I have hotmail on 5 
computers. I can only deal with the interface for 5 minutes or so until 
I mess up something.


 Thanks for your hints so far. ¡Qué tengas buen Fin del Año!

De nada :). It is a day to listen to CDs de música latina that I have 
worn out playing them in my car. Right now La 5a estación is playing. 
After them, I will play Elefante.

 yes, it can be reproduced; I've fresh installed 6.0-RELEASE and did
 only:

 # cd /usr/ports/emulators/qemu
 # make WITH_KQEMU=yes
 # make install
 # kldload kqemu
 # kldstat

 PANIC :-((


Does it still panic if you don't load kqemu? Test with just the new 
install and see if it panics. I haven't had a panic with 6.0 except 
that I have problems at boot on machines using the Netgear GA 311 
1000baseT NIC. I get some message about loop back failed and it panics. 
If I shutdown, I don't have any problem. 

I use KDE and it isn't hard to make artsd panic. I convert all of my CDs 
into wma's and load them on a Nomad Zen Touch. So, I can use the kvm to 
switch to XP system that did the conversion and then play the wma's 
without any problems.

Were you using portupgrade or portmanage? They are supposed to 
automagically take care of problems like that.

Sometimes, even if you use them, the build doesn't happen but if you 
look at the configure messages, you will see it is missing. Since it is 
in the dependancy list, I would just build neon and try building 
subversion again. 

I first would try updating subversion with one of the tools and see if 
it is fixed for you.

 I deinstalled ports/www/neon/ and installed it again; now it placed

 know why it did not automatically in the process started by 'make

 I had one or two PANIC's during the makes and while I was copying
 over my homeland from the older notebook, maybe the later fsck
 removed the just installed header files;

 with the PANIC's I still have to work out, what's going on; I can

A panic can happen with the ?-stables and that is why you boot to the

 NO site should be designed to work with IExplorer. I know it's done,
 but it should not! Why do we have W3C? If we could all just do things
 by the book the internet would be a much nicer place to visit.

 People who design for IExplorer are bad! They have microsoft in mind
 and _not_ the visitors. I hate it when choice gets violated! It
 should be called a crime against freedom.

I have seen some that don't work properly except with IE but the only 
sites I have encountered that demand IE are online banking. They seem 
to only understand how to let you login securely using IE.

There are some sites such as Tyco that only work with Mozilla style 
browsers. It depends on the push techology built into Mozilla style 
browsers. You can see what the Navy Observatory time is but the 
automated gif only works with the mozilla products. See
http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/what1.html

Each browser has some technology that they depend on and you have to use 
that browser before you can use their services. The 80/20 rule probably 
applies because the banks can program for IE and get 85% of the people 
without trippling their web development costs.

Kent


 imho: sites designed for 'iexplorer only' should be banned ;-)

You need a command in your .xinitrc. For example, I use startx and have 
the following:

# m .xinitrc
exec startkde

If you add the exec command to .xinitrc, KDE will startup.

Get a real development platform that will also build programs on Unix. 
Microsoft's developer program will use cvs on Unix, and submit scripts 
to do the builds. On its bad day, there isn't anything on Unix that 
comes close and that includes the ones you have to pay to use.

Just to be fair, I had to do a conversion from Cray Fortran to non-Cray 
Fortran. It was an old program that allocated arrays and used pointers 
with offsets in the calls to the subroutines. The debugger on FreeBSD 
would catch the signal error but wouldn't show you the contents of the 
arrays. MS debug would just error off; however, if you stuck a 
breakpoint on the call that was blowing up on Unix, you could examine 
the arrays on Windows and see what caused the errors. It is handy to 
have them both around :).

 Schwab Streetsmart
 Accounting Software (CA)
 Quicken
 Photoshop
 Adobe Acrobat (for creating PDFs)

There are a couple of others. I use Adobe GoLive and haven't found an 
equivalent. I could do some of the stuff better with a text editor but 
when I use GoLive, the whole update would be finished before I was 
hardly started using a text editor on FreeBSD.

There is also the problem that some sites are designed to work with 
Internet Explorer. You can try to visit with firefox but that doesn't 
always work even with firefox on XP. We are still running flash-6 and 7 
is in the works but I think that they have already announced that it 
has security problems. The fixed multimedia products are always 
released on Windows and it takes a while for them to get arount to the 
other OSes. You only have to look at the people recently with problems 
getting plugins to work on FreeBSD. You won't have any problem getting 
them to run on XP. They probably wouldn't work properly on Linux 
either.

Now, I wouldn't use Outlook Express unless I was still working and the 
company demanded it. I am happy using kmail and thunderbird. But I 
forward some to my internal XP account because the graphics don't work 
properly with my setup.

For a while, I was updating FreeBSD to add security fixes as much as I 
did my Windows 2K server. Both normally run for months without being 
rebooted.

The OSes usually overlap and as long as I have choices available, I 
won't have to force a project onto an OS when it is really simple to 
add it to the one other OSes. That is the advantage of a heterogeneous 
computing environment. Projects just automagically move onto the OS 
where it is easiest to work on them.

 kmplayer and gmplayer handle it perfectly. Xine handles it but
 doesn't sound quite as good (lot of tinkering that can be done there
 though).

 Totem plays it but its only tolerable if you really like chipmunks.


Even mplayer will play it if you get past the message about 
~/.mplayer/subfont.tttf.

If you can play it, the application works over the network. I have been 
known to record the news from Oaxaca, México and burn a CD for friends 
from there. It is a kind of poke in the ribs to get them on the 
Internet. It hasn't worked yet but I keep trying :).

If realplayer won't work with firefox, the relationship between firefox 
preferences  download actions and audio/x-pn-realaudio is screwed up. 
You should be able to point the firefox file action to anything that 
will play a realaudio file type. This is also true for mp3 file 
actions.

Before I did any of this, I added links to nphelix.so and nphelix.xpt 
in /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_linux_plugins 
and /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins

I don't know which one made the difference. I tweaked until I could see 
the plugins in mozilla. I am also using the default libmap.conf for the 
version [56]-stable.

At any rate, firefox-1.5_5,1 will play *.ram files on all of my systems 
(with sound cards, speakers and either 5-stable or 6-stable) when I 
visit websites with realaudio *.ram files. The only problem is that the 
realaudio sites I listen to are folklóric sites from Columbia and 
Venezuela. This includes winamp playlists using xmms.

I haven't made mozilla work but then I don't miss the capability 
either :).

Re: firefox 1.5 port

 stitching it all together from srcs...  specially a port as widely
 used and popular as firefox..


But that is why you use things like portupgrade or portmanage. You have 
dependancies and sometimes, not all of the time, they have to be 
updated before you build the main application. If you do the updating 
out of sequence (abcd) such as update b before you update d, you may 
have to go back and force the update because the flag to update is no 
longer there. 

A portupgrade -rR won't fix what you have already broken. You have to 
force it with -fr. That will take a long time and you probably can't 
recover any other way because the package site only has 
firefox-1.5_4,1.

For example, nspr and cairo build just fine on my system. I cvsuped and 
tried it on 6-stable. It sounds like you are in that position now.

If there are a number of changes and it looks like an interface is 
affected, I run portupgrade -purR xxx. Michael will probably tell you 
how to do it with portmanage. I think like portupgrade and use it.

That doesn't work. FreeBSD-5.3-release does not have current packages. 
They are dinosaurs the day after they unlock the port system from a 
release. You have to look for packages in 5-stable/.../Latest.

Such as
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-5-stable/Latest/

The package site always lags behind the port system. If you want current 
applications, you have to cvsup and then build them on your system. You 
have choices but you have to understand the options.

   Yes it is.  While some things work, it still does not

   nor is the path for it correct in the sample
   libmap.confs.  Beecher's fix will correct.
 
  The only thing it doesnt do is create symbolic links which
  does not mark a port as BROKEN for one, secondly why would
  you remove your browser_plugins dir?

 That was a typo, read the followup I sent immediately
 following the first message. Secondly putting plugins in
 browser_linux_plugins does break firefox and mozilla. I would
 call that broken where I come from. Users should not have to
 move things that were installed in the wrong place. That's
 the job of the port.
   
You were very quick with your correction of the typo. Faster
than some of us read their mails ;-)
Secondly, I totally agree to the statement that the port is
broken You have too much to manually correct.
At the time I was not aware of the facts and lost quite some
time finding out. If you know, it's not that kind of a deal.
  
   Even though I'm not a programmer, I'm looking into fixing that
   port. I've tried contacting the maintainer and didn't get any
   response. If I manage to get it working I'll file a PR. The
   linuxpluginwrapper has been broken since the last upgrade,
   acroread way before that and it took me many hours to find all
   the fixes necessary (thank you everyone who helped me with that
   issue). If nothing else, I'll write all those changes into a
   script which will do it automatically. I would think this would
   be a priority if FreeBSD is going to be a viable desktop
   alternative. It's exactly this kind of situation that causes new
   users to give up and go with the penguin, or worse go back to
   micro$oft. I can't even tell someone to read the documentation,
   because there isn't any. These fixes were scattered throughout
   many email threads that span many months.
  
   If anyone needs a copy of my work-around it can be found at:

  I can sympathize about these linux program problems.  I want to be
  able to listen to Real Audio streams, but as it is now I have to
  boot into Windows to do it.
 
  The linux-realplayer won't start because it can't find any fonts
  and it tells me to fix fontconfig.  I never had problems with fonts
  before fontconfig came into being.  I really have no idea why it
  exists.

 I have no problems running realplayer installed from the ports. The
 helix plugin doesn't work with Firefox or Mozilla, but realplay works
 standalone. I would start by making sure your ports are up to date
 and reinstalling linux-fontconfig. If that doesn't work portupgrade
 -rf linux-realplayer and it will rebuild everything that depends on
 it. Also do a pkgdb -F to make sure your dependency database is OK. I
 didn't have any config problems with fontconfig, and didn't have to
 tweak anything. Sounds like something else is wrong.

I have no problem with the plugins. What I have is
/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_linux_plugins/nphelix.so
/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_linux_plugins/nphelix.xpt
/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/nphelix.so
/usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins/nphelix.xpt
/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-mozilla/plugins/nphelix.so
/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-mozilla/plugins/nphelix.xpt

Most of them are links and I don't know which directory is the important 
one but I click on an ram and it plays.

Kent

  Moreover, I have no interest in learning XML, then cutting and
  pasting various config files together out of what little
  documentation exists for fontconfig.  The documentation is so poor
  that I have no idea what I am doing anyway.   Searches on Google
  and the mailing lists were no help either.
 
  It is very frustrating.  I concur that some of these programs are
  just not desktop ready.  At this rate I am never going to be able
  to get rid of XP on my laptop.

Re: how to dual boot

 I'm trying to get a dual boot system set up with FBSD 5.3 and Win XP

 get back to the FBSD installer by booting from the 5.3 CD but what do
 I do to provide a choice of which to boot right on the HD?

I use the ntldr to boot my dual boots. You just have to copy boot1 onto 
your c-drive and then add it to your boot.ini. You can do that from the 
system applet.

I renamed boot1 to bootsect.bsd and my boot.ini is as follows:

[boot loader]
timeout=4
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINXP
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(4)\WINXP=Microsoft Windows XP 
Professional /f
c:\bootsect.bsd=FreeBSD

The line should be XP Professional but all I added was the FreeBSD. 
Ntldr lets you choose which one is primary and then, with a pop-down 
menu, easily change it to something else.

I have 2 16x, dual layer, DVD burners. A Sony and a LiteOn. I couldn't 
find the boxes, and I'm not going to pull them out to look :). 

The Sony seems to want to burn CDs at 42x and the LiteOn, day in and day 
out, burns at 48x. The LiteOn is on a 2800+ XP AMD. I have 16x media 
for the DVD burner but have only used 8x so far on the Sony. It is on a 
1600+ XP. That translates into 11MB/sec. When I backed up ~4GB of 
digital photos from my Canon Digital Rebel, I needed around 10 minutes. 
It was much faster than I expected and I didn't time the operation.

This is also only under Windows XP. The systems boot 6-stable and XP-Pro 
but the files I need to burn only exist on XP. I don't expect a problem 
from either on the FreeBSD side. I just happen to like Nero and the 
choices on FreeBSD are quite different. I make the system fit the 
project and not force the project onto a system.

 A much better solution is to:

  cd /usr/ports/multimedia/mplayer-skins  make config

 then deselect everything, but the default skin.

 Since I did that I haven't had any problem with unfetchable skins.


If you go into distfiles/mplayer and rm all of the files that are out of 
date, you won't have any problem either. IIRC, the names haven't 
changed but the MD5 and sizes have and it won't refetch them until you 
remove them. The skins aren't broken. There is something slightly out 
of whack with the Makefile.

There may be an easier way but cd and rm * works just fine.
