Hi, after freebsd-update fetch install and a reboot, I now cannot connect to my remote server.
My ssh client on Windows says:
End of keyboard-interactive prompts for server - Server refused to allocate pty.
I tried to clean my known_hosts ssh file on Windows, then tried to reconnect, nothing...
I've discovered that the line :
ADD_SIGCODE(SIGFPE, 8, FPE_FLTIDO, 9, "input denormal operation");
is missing in my sys/signal.h...
while $ freebsd-version
I've just run :
# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install
But sys/signal.h is...
I have a number of special settings in /etc/ssh/sshd_config. When I tried to upgrade from 12.3 to 12.4 the config merge process removes everyone of them including the ListenAddress which disables sshd altogether. I do not recall having this difficulty with previous upgrades. Is my memory going...
I recently ran freebsd-update on a FreeBSD 13.1-RELEASE machine and got the following message...

I recently upgraded my server from FreeBSD 13.0 RELEASE to 13.1 RELEASE. I followed the instructions in the handbook, but I'm having issues, especially with iocage. When I attempt to run iocage, I get this error:
ld-elf.so.1: /lib/libc.so.7: version FBSD_1.7 required by...
Something very odd just occurred on my laptop when I performed a freebsd-update fetch & install. When I did the fetch it reported that there was a new patch (I was already on p4), so I then performed the "freebsd-update install" as usual and then did a reboot.
When I checked it using uname -a...
Try to update my vpn box from 13.1-RELEASE-p3 to 13.1-RELEASE-p4 with freebsd-update tool and I see strange behavior
root@vpnbox:/usr/src # uname -srm

I was using freebsd-update to upgrade a box to 13.1-RELEASE.
Here is the command I used to start the process...
freebsd-update upgrade -r 13.1-RELEASE
I followed the usual process and when prompted to reboot the first time, rebooted. Now I get this...

I installed FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE last fall with the help of this forum. I haven't updated the computer since then, and have basically just ensured that, with my current install, the OS and KDE work and I am able to use Firefox...
After moving from Arch Linux to FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE-p7 one major difference that I found was the fact that under all Linux distros there is only one update mechanism which updates both the base and user land packages. For example under Debian/Ubuntu you need to run only sudo apt update && sudo...
FreeBSD 13.0-RELEASE. p4 kernel, p5 userland, consistent with <https://bokut.in/freebsd-patch-level-table/#releng/13.0>.
freebsd-update(8) repeatedly fetches but fails to install updates. Rebooted, no better. How should I resolve this?
I would like to implement a detection within a script that gives me an answer if the release is at END OF LIFE or still current.
In a nutshell, I call freebsd-update from my script and I need to differentiate between a legitimate error and the error code 1 returned by freebsd-update when the...
I just patched my kernels for the latest round of advisories. Then I noticed an inconsistency in the patch level:
[ritz.156] # uname -a

This one is kind of maddening. 4 brand new servers, all installed around the same time, firewalled to only allow ssh from a handful of IPs, and key-based auth only. It's a fair assumption that none of them were broken into, both based on the access restrictions and the fact the the "IDS" option...
Following guidance from SirDice I've cobbled together instructions on how to run freebsd-update over a LAN rather than directly obtaining the update over the Internet. This would be particularly useful for anyone on a metered on slow connection. The assumption is that the Server has already been...
I was doing some update and discover that update3.freebsd.org doesn't resolve anymore.
Is it a permanent issue?
update1, update2, update4, update5 are all online and in sync with the same content :)
In the past, I could choose to extract the base source code in the /usr/src during the installation, or download it afterward and extract it after installation.
In case of RELEASE, it was possible to update the /usr/src with freebsd-update, i.e. without using subversion.
After having rebooted I ran the final freebsd-update install step and got this:
# freebsd-update install
Installing updates...ln: ///var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/os-release: No such file or directory
install: ///var/db/etcupdate/current/etc/rc.d/linux: No such file or directory
I have a note referring to this security alert saying I need to truncate bsdpatch before doing freebsd-update:
: > /usr/bin/bspatch
In reading the SA, I'm unclear if this is still an issue. Do I need to keep doing this in 12.1? How can I tell?
After several freebsd-updates I ran today in an issue with /lib/libreadline conflicting with /usr/local/lib/libreadline. The former (/lib/libreadline) seems to be a left over from a previous FreeBSD version.
After removing the old one in /lib and running ldconfig the bash shell started to work...
