 Dear folks,

 In updating ports I encounter above issue and cannot proceed.

 20130929:
   AFFECTS: users of x11/pixman
   AUTHOR: zeis...@freebsd.org

   The library version of x11/pixman has changed, and portrevision has
   been bumped in all dependent ports.  If you have external software that
   depends on pixman, this software needs to be recompiled.
   To recompile all software dependent on pixman, run:

   # portmaster -r pixman
   or
   # portupgrade -rf pixman

 The messages are that a pkg texlive-ub* and that #!/bin/sh list
 too long.  I try to run
 # portmaster -d -r pixman -x 'texlive-*'
 but it still fails in the same place :(

I continued with portmaster's -R option and got a lot further. You
could try either that or the command line that portmaster suggests 
when it bails out. 

 I am using texlive-freebsd from Romain Tartiere's googlecode page in
 case it is important.  Please advice me so I can succeed to fix these
 issue.  I lost X because I failed to read the /usr/src/UPDATING advice
 and then I realized that I overlooked this :(

I don't think that texlive is relevant; if you continue the process
instead of starting from scratch, you'll probably get farther. 

I'd prefer to actually debug the problem at its root, but it's the
middle of the night and I don't seem to have enough brain cells awake 
to figure anything out.

Good luck.

Try the '-R' again; it may get a bit farther each time. 

You can always recover by removing some of the ports and reinstalling
them after the remaining ports are updated. You're going to have to
rebuild a huge number of ports anyway, so this is not very different
from using portmaster on everything.

Good luck.

 I'm not sure I correctly understand your intention, but maybe Samba is

 Samba is working fine and all of the other computers on the network
 can see each other and the printer/scanner. The problem is that the
 scanner does not see the FreeBSD machine.

I'm going to make some guesses here, because your information is still
sketchy. Specifically, I'm assuming that you have Samba running on the
FreeBSD machine, and that the other (Windows) computers can write files
to the Samba shares on the FreeBSD machine, but that some kind of GUI
comes up when you scan, and offers Windows machines as possible
destination, but doesn't offer the FreeBSD machine.

Assuming all of that is correct, this is a Samba-tuning question, and
you may need a Samba expert. But first you can check whether the
machines agree on the master browser, and whether there's an Active
Directory lookup occurring in each (Windows machine vs. printer-scanner)
case. Are these hosts all on the same IP subnet?

_PASSWORD_LEN is the defined limit. It's 128 characters by default but

I looked at the code and there don't seem to be any arbitrary
limits. The code isn't optimized for really large numbers of entries,
but 600 isn't what I'd consider large in this context.

I ran a simple shell script and had no problems entering many thousands
of static ARP entries, so my interpretation from reading the code isn't
horribly wrong. I think you need to find out what kind of problems they
ran into at 600 entries. 

As a (maybe-irrelevant) side point, I don't know what you mean by IXP,
since in my background the term means Internet eXchange Point, and
isn't likely to get anywhere close to 600 ARP entries on a single
subnet.

 Hi again,

 I said that wrong... I meant that I was able to compile OK but unable to
 boot with a lean kernel.  I was able to boot buildworld and buildkernel of
 GENERIC.

The way to do this is to use a binary search. Start with a working
(GENERIC) kernel, then add half your changes in. If it fails, then you
know the problem is in the set of changes that you included. If it
works, the problem is in the set of changes you didn't include. It's a
little more complicated because there may well be a dependency, where
two options need to both be included or left out, but I'm sure you get
the idea.

Alternatively, you could include kernel debugging and see where the CPU
is executing after the hang. But this requires more programming knowledge.

What do you want to do exactly? 

Do you want both disks together to be your new /usr/partition? In that
case, you want to set up some kind of RAID system with the two
disks. Start with the GEOM section in the handbook.

Do you want to end up with two partitions, each holding part of what the
/usr backup contains?  If that's what you're after, then the best
approach is probably to pick one subdirectory of /usr (/usr/local would
be an obvious choice) and restore everything *but* that to one of your
disks, then mount the other disk on the subdirectory and restore the
rest onto there. 

If your problem is just that the two restore operations are stepping on
each other's temporary files, then TMPDIR *should* take care of
that. You could show us more detail of how you run the restore
operations, or just run them one at a time instead of in parallel. 

I hope that helps.

 Really off-topic, but HAL is now deprecated on many modern systems. Why
 is FreeBSD continuing to use it? It is being replaced by udev. You
 would think that FreeBSD-10 would be a perfect time to put HAL to bed
 and take a more modern approach.

udev is tightly tied to the Linux kernel. I understand why you would
refer to Linux as many modern systems, but it's really not available
on anything non-Linux, and it's so tightly tied to the Linux kernel
device implementation that there's no reasonable way it could be.

Unlikely to be a corrupted binary. Much more likely to be that configure

Subversion is not relevant; it has not changed the use of the
index file. 'portversion' is part of the portupgrade port, and
requires not just an index but its own database version of the
index file. Building your own index will be slightly more
accurate for what is actually on your box, but fetching it will
be much faster and nearly always accurate enough.

 On one of my machines I cannot get it to update ports, most fail with

 and build world and install world and not USE gcc and GNU anymore (on
 the machine which gettext fails).  Is there a nice howto as to how to
 do this?
 How can it be done in easy steps and then try to track current?

Current isn't necessary, although it often has slightly newer versions
of the related tools. Clang will work fine on recent 9.x (I don't know
when it was imported, so it may need something more recent than
9.1). Furthermore, it will support building the world and ports, as
detailed in:
https://wiki.freebsd.org/BuildingFreeBSDWithClang

 I am aware that I would be on my own if I track current, but I want to
 test many programs to see if they would build without GCC and with
 CLANG only and report back to the developers and let them know of
 issues.

You are not entirely on your own with current, but you are expected to
more of the heavy lifting when a problem comes up that doesn't happen
for other people.

You actually have a number of choices that should work for you. You can
run current, which probably won't be very difficult (but nobody's going
to guarantee that). You can run RELENG_9 using clang as the default
compiler. Or you could use a jail to build with clang when the host
system builds with gcc. And I've most likely overlooked other
possibilities. 

If you are really starting from scratch on a particular machine, then a
clean install is worth considering; it guarantees that you're not
bringing along the effects of mistakes made previously on the system. If
the system is also needed stable for other purposes, then doing your
experiments in a jail may be your easiest path (a jail may even be
overkill; a chroot will handle it for some purposes).

 That is an interesting idea, but unfortunately our users tend to

I've been thinking about setting up certificates for pretty much the

impression is that the setup is mostly specific to the mail server,
which in my case is currently dovecot. 

Regardless of what else you do, there are some defensive things you
could do to take some of the pressure off. They won't be a solution, but
they might make your life easier while you work on a solution. Port
knocking would make it harder for the attackers to get through to try
passwords, and it's fairly easy to install on any particular type of
client. With the variety of clients you have to deal with, the
cumulative effort may be overwhelming, but it's at least worth a
thought. Another thing to try would be temporarily blocking any IP
address that tries several different user names in a short period of
time. Again, these kinds of things won't solve your problem, but they
may reduce the intensity of the attack.

 Second, config-recursive only does the configuration of the port
 options.

 Then I misunderstood the handbook, chich says:

 To avoid this when there are many dependencies, first run make 
 config-recursive
 to do the configuration in one batch.

 I understood this as the configuration is done on all the dependencies as 
 well.

You understood the handbook correctly. My comment was poorly worded and
unnecessary (I was actually making the same point as in #4.

The word options can mean slightly different things. The port's
framework may define options, which the port will require you to choose
among before building its software. The program being built may
*additionally* require user input for building, and the port framework
(in particular, make config) can't store those choices. This is
unusual, but some common ports do it (for example, ghostscript is one).

 The handbook also writes:

 Tip: When using config-recursive, the list of ports to configure are 
 gathered by the
 all-depends-list make(1) target. It is often recommended to run make 
 config-recursive
 until all dependent ports options have been defined, and ports options 
 dialog(1) screens
 no longer appear, to be certain all ports options have been configured as 
 intended.

 Does this mean if I run config-recursive several times in a raw, all the 
 dependencies will
 be configured?

This is a slightly different issue. Changing a port's options may change
its dependencies, so another round of config-recursive  might be needed
to config the new dependencies.

 ...

 Fourth (and, you'll be glad to hear, finally) some ports are interactive
 for reasons beyond options. See the manual for ports(7), noting the
 environment variables INTERACTIVE and BATCH.

 I will look at this.

  Second, after I've done a configure-recursive, how can I start it over 
  from scratch in case
  I want to change some config option? If I reissue make configure-recursive,
  I get only no configuration needed messages.
 
 If you really want to start from scratch, you can use
 rmconfig-recursive on the dependent port.

 Yes I meant only the given port and its dependencies, not the all ports.

 Well, this is 9.1-RELEASE on amd64, and I'm using the default, which I

On closer look, the error isn't bogus, but looks like it results from an
unnecessary pair of type casts. There's nothing in the autotools setups
about iconv, nor are there any patches in the port, so I'm not seeing an
obvious candidate for why this broke. 

My guess would be that this works if built with the base iconv, because
the test builds must have worked. That is not guaranteed, because the port

updates as part of a wider set of updates.

First of all, I think you mean config-recursive. 

Second, config-recursive only does the configuration of the port
options.

Third, handling of ports options has recently been changed to a new

for porters but revealing much internal workings. There may be some bugs
(I think I've noticed a few but haven't looked much into it.  You might

If you really want to start from scratch, you can use
rmconfig-recursive on the dependent port. Or to start *all* ports from
scratch, remove the contents of /var/db/ports/.

But generally you won't want to do that. What you really want is most
likely to be for one particular port, or for its full tree of
dependencies. In the first case, go to that port's directory and just do
a make config there. In the second case, go to that port's directory
and use make showconfig-recursive to figure out which ports actually
need to be changed.

I hope that helps.

 I have now tested with -j option and i can confirm that my

The ideal values for that parameter vary considerably with the balance
between number of cores, number of virtual cores, memory (amount and
speed) and disk throughput. If you want to optimize it, you'd need to
experiment. But it's not worth it; you can easily spend hours shaving a
couple of minutes off of your system build time.

 should i stick the -j option in the make.conf?

No. It sometimes causes problems with the install targets, and besides,
it makes the build output very confusing (so when you have a problem,
you always want to run without it).

Re: Ports Packages [Stable] in sync

2013-02-19 Thread Lowell Gilbert
Jeff Tipton jef...@mail.com writes:

 Thank you, Damien, for the reply. AFAIK, STABLE gets updated every 2
 weeks but not every day, and it seems to be that because of the
 intrusion, it has not been updated for long. The versions of the ports
 that come with the 9.1-RELEASE are even slightly newer than those of
 9-STABLE packages. I think if I don't get the revision number from
 which the 9-STABLE was updated last time I'll use the ports tree that
 comes with 9.1-RELEASE. I hope it won't cause much version
 incompatibilities.

Um, not really. Or at least, not specific enough to be sure whether it
is correct or not.

The ports tree is not branched, and is intended to work with all
supported branches and releases. In other words, regardless of whether
you're running 9.1-RELEASE, 9-STABLE (in svn/cvs terms, RELENG_9), or
10.x (HEAD), you can (and, unless you have specific reasons otherwise,
usually corporate security dictates) should use a ports tree checked out
from HEAD.

This is unrelated to whether packages are available for the ports on a
particular branch or tag. Package availability is unusually limited at
the moment, but that's because the build cluster has very limited
capacity right now for a variety of reasons. That situation will improve
over time, but until computers are infinitely fast, the package
collection will lag somewhat behind the ports tree. 

Packages need to be built for a particular base system (or close
enough: generally all base-system versions in the same major-number
release can run the packages for any other within that same series, most
notably the -STABLE version).

Additionally, -STABLE base system is updated by definition every time
a developer checks into the relevant branch (currently RELENG_9). For
ports, as I said earlier, there is no equivalent; updates go to HEAD,
period. When packages get built for a particular base system is a matter
of policy on the build cluster. I don't use downloaded packages for
ports updates, but I would expect that to evolve as the new build
cluster does.

Well, the errors look like stdint.h isn't getting included properly. Or

 The subnet (10.227.148.0) is not matching with the local network/netmask

Are you sure that the ARP is happening on the interface for the

portsnap is almost certainly the best answer for you.

freebsd-update is for the base system, not ports. 

If you needed version control features on your ports tree (especially if
you were regularly contributing changes to ports), getting and updating
your tree through subversion would have some extra features you might
want, but it doesn't sound as if that is the case for you.

Unless you have a specific reason why portsnap doesn't fit your use

 Top posting for brevity - the fact is, the code in your original

 You should cast the time_t value explicitly, or use %d instead of %ld.

 This advice looks correct. If you use the source Luke,
 you'll find the following (taken from a 8.2-STABLE/i386
 system source tree):

 /usr/src/sys/sys/types.h (line 253):

   typedef __time_t time_t;

 /usr/src/sys/i386/include/_types.h (line 97):

   typedef __int32_t __time_t;

 /usr/src/sys/i386/include/_types.h (line 55):

   typedef int __int32_t;

 So it boils down to (int), but %ld expects (long). This
 is the exact content of the warning. You can either
 case the (time_t) value to (long), or change %ld to %d
 to avoid the warning.

Even if the representations boil down to the same thing, the cast is
still a good idea. You may *know* (for example) that time_t is really an
int, but you don't know that it always will be. printf() (like other
variadic functions) loses type information, so make *sure* you cast the
type to what the format says it is, because the Usual Arithmetic

 I'd trust this system as far as I trust port maintainers right now. 

Well, almost. It would have to be cryptographically validated, which
would be a bit of work to get right.

 I
 understand that a port maintainer can submit arbitrary MASTER_SITES in a
 port Makefile which allows the maintainer to inject malware as they wish.
 If I trust the port maintainer to make me download and build something
 coming from e.g. http://samm.kiev.ua or http://danger.rulez.sk (just random
 picks, no offense intended), then I'd trust that maintainer to upload the
 package for me or submit a SHA256 hash that the correct package must have.
 So if somebody else were to build the package, the server would accept the
 upload only if it matches the hash.

It's easier to sneak something into a binary than a source code package,
although you can never be *completely* sure either way (c.f., Ken
Thompson's classic speech Reflections on Trusting Trust). In practice,
some amount of subterfuge would be required for the attacker to keep
from being found out too soon to do much good; possibly quite a lot of
subterfuge, if the port gets run on TrustedBSD systems or other forms of
system auditing. Once anyone notices a problem, the port will be shut
down quickly.

 Am I overlooking something? Is there some kind of port verification by
 someone from the team prior to accepting the port submission?

Well, a committer has to check the port in personally, but deliberate
sabotage could probably sneak by the committer most of the time.

Metapost contains more information than JPEG. There's no way to derive a

 Dear folks,

 Is it possible to change an image:

 http://www.valleycentral.com/uploadedImages/kgbt/Sports/Videos/GatorLogoJPEG.jpg?w=440h=330aspect=nostretch

 To metapost?  so that it could be processed by metapost?

 I have referenced this page

 http://matagalatlante.org/nobre/hyt/mpost.html

 but I don't have some of the programs referenced there.  If someone
 that is experienced in metapost or other language that can convert the
 graphic to metapost it would be very nice.  I have converted the image
 to EPS(encapsulated postscript) but the image does not fit nicely in
 *.tex documents and I would prefer to have a native one created by
 metapost or similar.

 Metapost contains more information than JPEG. There's no way to derive a
 whole model from a flat image, so converting the former to the latter
 doesn't really make sense. For that matter, JPEG is a pixel-based
 format, so it's not going to scale in the document as well as something
 that's based on vectors or curves. It would probably look okay if the
 original image were much larger and getting scaled down.

 question. Unfortunately, my set of documents in easy reach is too old to
 cover how to do this, so I can't give you the formula offhand.

 Good luck.

 Actually, the problem is that the placement of the figure is not where
 I want it to be.  With a correct and true EPS and the 'h' option would
 give a very good placement.  It would still be nice to produce a
 metapost file and scale it to fit nicely and place text next to it,
 but I am guessing that I am hoping for some miracles.

If you're talking about starting from a JPEG and turning it into a
scalable image, then yes, you're looking for miracles. It's kind of like
starting with a hamburger and trying to turn it into a steak.  

Getting placement correct, however, should be possible, but it's more of
a TeX question, and you might want to ask the TeX experts. Most of the
conversion programs on the page you referenced are in the FreeBSD ports
tree, so you shouldn't have trouble using them if you want.

 I would strongly advise connect to the modem via network cable and TCP/IP.

Since the modem is a PCI card, plugging it into the computer and
connecting to it over the PCI bus is required. Talking to the device
through the serial driver is correct.

First it's necessary to know whether this card requires a firmware

Second it's necessary to know what kind of connection the ISP expects it

 So the question remains, why is mtree giving a return of zero when it

mkdir etc home

mkdir home/temp
mtree -d  ../out

sed -i   's/^\(home[ ]*\)\(.*\)$/\1ignore/' ../out

and I think the problem you're having is that the second echo $?

One difference from your example is that you're using '-u'. I'm not sure

Re: Backup with mtree and rsync?

2013-01-08 Thread Lowell Gilbert
schu...@ime.usp.br writes:

 I have been wondering whether it is possible to create a backup system
 using mtree and rsync. Essentially, the user would create a mtree
 specification of the source directory and copy it over to the destination
 directory with rsync. Any changes in the destination could then be
 detected before restoring with the mtree specification, which should
 contain strong hashes of the files and should not contain the nlink
 keyword.

 The problem is that mtree would be too slow. It would recompute the
 hashes of big files even when they did not change from the last backup.
 Therefore, I would like to ask if there is an easy way to accomplish
 the following.

 Let a mtree specification of a directory from a certain point in the
 past be given. Also, assume that a (regular) file below that directory
 has not changed if its current modification time (mtime) equals
 its modification time in the past specification.
 Produce as output the new mtree specification for the directory without
 reading these files.

 This is somewhat like rsync does to perform incremental backups.

Except that you have a spec for mtree to be sure the backup copy hasn't
been corrupted. 

I don't see any way to do this directly. What you probably want to do is
use find(1) to pick out the new files to check, and then merge the
changes into the old mtree(8) spec. Not trivial, but the spec syntax is
intended to be easy to parse, so it shouldn't be that hard either.

 P.S.: As an aside, is there an utility in the base system that can
 reproduce the behavior of `rsync --delete -a dir0/ dir1/`?

It's possible that the mtree support in tar(8) might be able to do it,
but it would probably be a lot slower.

 I tried 2 different ways to capture the return code to no joy.

 #mtree -d -p ${flavor}
 #[ $? -eq 0 ] || \
 #  echo Error invalid directories in flavor ${flavor}.
 echo return = $?

 It seems that returning 0 is correct in a case as you mentioned.
 The manual at man mtree states:

 EXIT STATUS
  The mtree utility exits 0 on success, and 0 if an error occurs.

 Question: What _is_ an error here?

 If you use the source Luke at /usr/src/usr.sbin/mtree/mtree.c,
 you could find out what combination of options plus circumstances
 found at runtime could trigger an exit status != 0.

 The main() functions finishes with exit(status); where status
 is either set by functions mtree_specspec() or mtree_verifyspec(),
 or manually to 0 when -U is provided and MISMATCHEXIT (is 2) is
 encountered.

 Again from the manual:

  -uSame as -U except a status of 2 is returned if the file hierarchy
did not match the specification.

  -UModify the owner, group, permissions, and modification time of
existing files to match the specification and create any missing
directories or symbolic links.  User, group and permissions must
all be specified for missing directories to be created.  Corrected
mismatches are not considered errors.

 However, you're not using -U, but -u, so the last sentence of
 the description above should be relevant: No error per se,
 even though the status code should be 2.




 Well I just tested with -U -u together no joy.
 Tested with -U no joy.

 My read of the above is -u should cause a return code of 2 when the
 file hierarchy does not match the specification. I don't want -U
 because I am not modifying any content of the directory tree mtree is
 looking at.

 I just don't get the point your trying to make.

 Oh the other hand are you saying the script code is correct to capture
 the return code but using wrong options with mtree ?

It works fine for me:

[5023] (lowell-desk) temp touch foo
[5024] (lowell-desk) temp mtree -c  ../out
[5025] (lowell-desk) temp if (mtree  ../out ) ; then echo yes ; else echo

There are a number of keys involved in ssh. The host keys are used at

 Yes I have basic DNS processing understanding.
 But lets not get side tracked by something the question is not asking
 about. Please Focus on the part of the post you cut out which is
 asking about static ip addressees.

Okay, good. I'll assume that the DNS issues aren't relevant, then.

The simple answer is:
the IP address(es) shown by 'ifconfig' will be the ones actually bound
to that interface on that machine. 

Without knowing *how* you're binding those addresses, we can't tell you
which of your 25 static addresses are bound on any particular
machine. In most cases, I expect static addresses to be directly
configured on the specific machine in question. Since you control that
machine, and don't know what address(es) are configured, that probably
isn't the case. As a second possibility, the addresses are allocated
statically, but the host is configured via DHCP, from a server that
knows those addresses are statically assigned to that host by hardware
address or some other DHCP option. In this case, there will almost
certainly be exactly one of your 25 static IP addresses bound to this
specific host's network interface.

But, again, the key piece of information is how the addresses are
getting bound.

The usual way to do this is to start the daemon in a script that

 In general, I'd agree with you.  Certainly, that's been the case

I have a very small server of my own for the house, and I generally

 But I have had essentially no problems doing in-place major rev

I wouldn't use the new toolchain for this server. The old toolchain is

 That's not a fair comparison, because tunneling a whole X server

 Sorry if I was unclear.

Not at all; in this case you are entirely unresponsible for what I am

I have vague memory of VirtualBox using Java, which might explain the

 I am running 3 different VMs on this
 server (soon to be more :-). One is WIn 2008 server as an RDP host for
 a specific application, the others ar FreeBSD VMs, one for DNS and
 DHCP, and the other for email / webmail. I manage the underlying Win
 2008 instance via RDP (and that is how the end users connect), the two
 FreeBSD VMs do not run a window manager at all and they are managed
 via SSH connections. I use the VBoxHeadless executable to run the VMs
 for production use. Normally I make config changes with the command
 line tool VBoxManage, but in this case I had a FreeBSD VM that was not
 booting so I needed the console (and to make various changes to the
 config).

 It is running the VBox management GUI on the physical layer server
 that I am having fits with.

If it is a network/protocol issue, ssh makes it harder to
troubleshoot. Verbose output from the initiating side might tell you
what is happening, although you would probably need to do some log
analysis to separate out the different channels.

I went back and checked the truss output, and the EAGAIN errors aren't
interesting; they just mean there was no input on a non-blocking read
from the socket. 

You also might want to check with the VirtualBox support channels, the
freebsd-emulation list, and other obvious suspects. Also, building with
a different frontend might make the X connection more lightweight.

 Is there any particular reason you don't let the X server run remotely
 and attach to it with something more latency-friendly, like vnc? I would
 expect that to work vastly better on any OS, just because you get X
 (specifically, its tendency to head-of-line blocking) out of its own way.

 The short answer to why X11 via SSH and not VNC for the management
 is that I have not found a very clean way to have the VNC service
 running for root without manual intervention to start it. Yes, I know
 I could script it, but that adds one additional layer that needs to be
 supported.

That makes sense. You shouldn't have to run an X server on the base
level system at all.

 P.S. I did get my VM repaired, very slowly and painfully, but I still
 need to track down the VBox GUI issue.

Being able to clone, import, and export VMs is one of the reasons I use
them at all...

Be well.

Re: Odd X11 over SSH issue

2012-11-23 Thread Lowell Gilbert
Paul Kraus p...@kraus-haus.org writes:

 I am seeing very poor response time running the VitrualBox GUI via X11
 tunneled over SSH via the Internet. The issue _appears_ to be limited
 to the VBox GUI as Firefox is reasonable. I am well aware of the
 latency issues tunneling X11 over SSH across the Internet, but that is
 what we are stuck with for the moment. The server is running FreeBSD 9
 and is patched as of about 4 weeks ago.

 Observations:

 1. When I first SSH into the box I see a long delay after the SSH
 tunnel is setup before being prompted for a password, and I do not
 know if this delay is related to the VBox issue. Details below.

Running the ssh server with more debugging will probably tell you what's
happening in this area.

 2. When I fire up VirtualBox it takes _minutes_ before the window
 opens and each action (drawing contents, mouse clicks) takes
 additional _minutes_. Looking at the VirtualBox process with truss I
 see many, many errors of the form:

 read(7,0x80193a02c,4096)   ERR#35 'Resource temporarily 
 unavailable'

 where fd 7 is a socket.

This could be a red herring. Or not. But you can't tell without tracing
down exactly what the socket is, and what is expected to be read from
it. Probably not the first path worth exploring, although you may need
to go there eventually.

 I would chock it up to network slowness, but I
 do not see the same behavior with Firefox, xload, or xclock.

That's not a fair comparison, because tunneling a whole X server
involves passing a lot more events than tunneling an application to run
on your local server. This is particularly painful because the X
protocols are highly serial.

Is there any particular reason you don't let the X server run remotely
and attach to it with something more latency-friendly, like vnc? I would
expect that to work vastly better on any OS, just because you get X
(specifically, its tendency to head-of-line blocking) out of its own way.

Not surprising; I think you had already covered that possibility with
fstat(1). It's vaguely possible that the space is used in large files
that are covered by the dev filesystem mounted in named's chroot, but
I think it's more likely you have some filesystem corruption.

Have you tried an fsck(8)? As usual, you would want good backups first,
and then rebooting to single-user mode so you can fsck the filesystem
without it being mounted.

Good luck.

No, I don't think so. datasize was the parameter I was most
suspecting; and it assumes that a particular process was causing the
crash (which is unlikely; the OS is supposed to protect you against

Most likely, the crash was not directly caused by a shortage of virtual

that some more specific resource was exhausted. Or perhaps the memory
leak left dangling references in a vnode.

 Plus you may care about file ownership, and that's where the stat

 Solaris and a least a few versions of Linux have a dircmp command

 problem with it is that it tends to be slow (I had to validate
 millions of files).

It's not clear what the danger profile is supposed to be here; dircmp
(and recursing 'diff' applications) can handle many cases, but mtree(8)
(with appropriate options) covers more pathological problems. Even so,
analysis of changes in file nodes like named sockets will usually
require some understanding of the application.

I suspect that either a recursive diff or an mtree specification is a
good solution for the original poster's problem, but we don't have
enough information to be more sure than that.

 A solution to what problem? The ignored message isn't a problem on its

 I have a similar HP system.  That message is logged a couple of times
 a minute, hiding other messages in the logs and making them roll over
 quickly.  That particular system is a Pentium D which wasn't really
 worth much effort, but it would still be nice to see this annoyance
 fixed.

Yes, I would agree that a repeated message is much more of an annoyance
than having it just happen once at boot time. With a Pentium D, there
probably isn't a core temperature monitor at all (I *think* that's true
for all of them, but it's definitely true for some), so you just want to
turn the messages off.

Unfortunately, I can't browse sources now, but I think that what happens
might be controlled by events going through devd. If that's correct, you
should be able to add an event rule to drop events related to your
non-existant thermistor (or delete one that already exists). You also
might be able to change the polling period for the thermal device.

 multimedia/libvpx would not have been updated.  Selectively updating ports
 is not supported.  Symlinking libraries to missing versions is often a
 source of mysterious problems later.



 I had run csup with ports-multimedia since the first libvpx error came up!.
 Libvpx was already up to date by the way, and correctly installed. So i did
 not Symlink a library to any missing version.

But not necessarily the version that your other ports had been tested
against. This can lead to mysterious problems, as you may have noticed.

 Selectively updating ports is not supported.  Then I must wonder why do
 we have the option to put ports-{$port} inside the supfile, and not a
 mandatory ports-all.

Sometimes, for some purposes, it works, and keeping it around helps some
experts (especially porters). But not supported means please
don't ask us to help you use it. That is, you should update the whole
port tree and update all dependent ports before reporting a problem.

Here is what you should do:

  (1) Update your ports tree. You can use any method to do this
  (e.g. cvs, cvsup, subversion, portsnap), but update the whole tree
  at the same time.

  (2) If step (1) did not update your INDEX file, update it
  now. Possible methods include make fetch and make index. I you
  use portupgrade, portsdb -Uu is the best way.

  (3) cd /usr/ports  make clean
  Kind of overkill in most cases, but when your port tree is
  building in bogus directories for no apparent reason, overkill may
  save your butt.
  
  (4) Upgrade all of the ports that firefox depends on (and the ones
  they depend on). Tools like portmaster or portupgrade make this
  much easier.

  (5) Rebuild the vpx port, even if it's already up to date.

  (6) Then rebuild the firefox port.

 The first problem showed up during configure. Libvpx could not be found and

 After examining Config.Log, I found  a compiler switch like this:

 -L/usr/local/lib/nss

 I made a symlink there to libvpx.so and the port compiled without errors.

That's an incredibly ugly solution; if the vpx port were installed

 or can the most recent ports be run with a release, like this:

I would expect ports to still be best with head, as I haven't heard

I'm not sure whether there's any equivalent to tracking RELENG_9 (as
