Here is an example of a single FreeBSD port in 3 terminals in the screenshot. The ncurses menu on the left shows the menu after make config is run from the port directory. You can see the graphics/blender directory and a few files, including the Makefile in the top right terminal. In the bottom...
My harddisk for storage failed, and I couldn't access it at all using the FreeBSD boot CD or a Linux rescue CD. It got a CAM error when booting FreeBSD, from the harddisk that didn't fail. I couldn't access the literal drive in the FreeBSD CD nor from a Linux rescue CD.
My harddisk failed, when...

I ended up in a python37/python38 hell. Dependencies on one removes the other and vice-verse.

I am making a port, and I was wondering what the proper solution is to the following dependency question. The software I am porting has a build and run dependency on Node.js v12 or higher (and actually yarn-node >= 12 also). Since there are separate ports for each LTS version...
I'm looking to improve the manageability, IMO, of ports. However, I'm in need of advises to overcome some challenges I'm encountering.
This tool gives a very nice tree view. Since you could have different (poudriere) 'sets' and make.conf file(s), this manual usage becomes...
To simplify references to sections within pages for ports, we now have anchors within each page.

suggests two browser extensions that can help you to work with anchors.
With the page for Firefox as an example...
Greetings. Because I'm a newbie and non-english, I need some clarification about pkg-lock although I've read it. I tried to test it myself as follows;
root@FreeBSD:~ # pkg info -d curl
Depends on :
root@FreeBSD:~ # pkg lock curl...
Hi folks, I've a strange problem with ghostscript, which I need to install a cups printer under FreeBSD 12.1.
FreeBSD damara.bigopensky.de 12.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE r354233 GENERIC amd64
To get a valid configuration and tools for the cups-printer-render-pipline, I need...
I did a fresh install of FreeBSD 12.1 (AMD64) on my media server, did an update to p1, and also updated the ports collection with portsnap fetch + extract, and did a pkg update, too. Only problem is, the Logitech Media Server port no longer compiles. (It complains about quite a few missing...
I'm looking into net-im/py-matrix-synapse:
:/usr/ports/net-im/py-matrix-synapse # make FLAVOR=py36 all-depends-list | grep python
It has wide dependency graph. Is there a way to find what port...
To any user of -RELEASE who has locked www/firefox in the past:
in your experience, what types of dependency issue arose as the weeks or months passed?
Re https://pastebin.com/biRRGHCD line 140 I imagine that it's prudent to also lock www/flashplayer. (-CURRENT in that paste, but the essence...
Hello, all this packages has dependency to samba43:
I have installed samba44 and pkg is messed with this situation (on actual upgrade) completely (Cannot solve problem using SAT solver, trying another plan) and in the end, pkg...
Every time I run pkg upgrade or pkg install PKG, pkg asks me to install some apparently unnecessary packages.
I'm running FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE-p8, using mainly packages, tracking the quarterly repo, and checking out the quarterly ports tree to match (using svn).
I have compiled...
After having a long discussion about future of the GNOME desktop, I decided to give a try to x11-wm/xfce.
Different components that come with Xfce (taskmanager, squeeze etc...) required different versions of clang to be installed as a dependency. Now I have clang33, clang35 and...
A lot of circular dependencies have been removed from FreeBSD's ports tree, which is good. There are still a lot of circular categories in the port's options. For instance graphical ports will call audio or internet dependencies, then they will call on graphical dependencies, and repeatedly vice...
I was interested in seeing a graph of package dependencies, so I could trace which packages were needed by which in a complete tree. portmaster -l can give basic information (leaf, trunk, root, branch) but does not show the relationships.
I wrote the following tool to list dependencies as a...
I'm sometimes finding that I want to rebuild a port to enable a single option, like DEBUG, for example. Otherwise I generally use standard packages for everything else. For some ports with a lot of dependencies, I want to avoid having to build all those dependencies from source. The last time I...
Is there a way to prevent installation of some optional Port dependencies that are not managed in the Port's configuration file? For example, can editors/pluma be installed without also building and installing x11/mate? Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I was guessing that pluma does not require any...
