Updating ports bsd 8

However, this is (mostly) easy enough to configure if you know how. First of all, update your ports tree (see other posts on my blog on how to do this) Next we need to install the linux compatibility base system (if you haven’t already) – to do this, type the following as root: This will fetch the linux flash plugin.

If it complains about size mismatches or MD5 checksum failures, then you have likely not updated your ports tree like you were told!

On older Free BSD systems, Portsnap is not automatically included, but it can be installed from sysutils/portsnap port by using command: Portsnap first fetch and update compresses snapshots of the Free BSD ports tree stored in /var/db/portsnap/ (in /usr/local/portsnap/ if Portsnap is installed from Free BSD Ports Collection) by default, and then only extract and update the uncompressed live ports tree at /usr/ports.

The behavior and operation of Portsnap is controlled by configuration file located in /etc (in /usr/local/etc/ if Portsnap is installed from the Free BSD Ports Collection, and the configuration file is not automatically generated when freshly installed, instead you’ll found sample, just copy it as portsnap.conf).

First, look at the porting information on this page. The list below is a useful reminder of things to do. with a list of URLs to the locations where the distfile is kept, https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/Open BSD/distfiles/ for example. In some cases, for example icinga or darktable, a distribution tar file has been prepared and is available in a /releases/ directory.

Where available, use these in preference to other options as they usually include the proper build infrastructure (configure scripts, etc) which are often missing from "tagged" releases.

Specify as normal, using something like Some ports don't always need to retrieve all files in all circumstances.

Now the freebsd-update(8) utility can fetch bits belonging to 9.1-RELEASE.

During this process freebsd-update(8) will ask for help in merging configuration files.

It’s a basic LAMP install but since we’re not using linux it should be called BAMP or maybe FAMP? here are the steps to install Free BSD 8 with apache, my SQL, PHP then install wordpress.

If licensing information appears incorrect, tell them.

If you had to jump through hoops to make the port build, tell them what can be fixed. It is quite okay to port software and let other people handle it afterwards.
