I have a FreeBSD box with no Internet connection. Somehow I had installed "pkg" into the host system previously (if I remember correctly, it was from the mounted dvd1.iso).
I created a jail and tried to install some packages. The "pkg" is not available in the jail. I tried to mount the same...
I have another machine which is offline. What is the best method to install packages offline?
I mean, due to the dependencies, it is almost impossible to download all the dependent packages to install them.

There has to be a minimal_tested_target_level or something to have sepperate versions of the package uploaded for different freebsd releases, keeping it compatible.
I prefer FreeBSD 11.4 over newer because of SCO unix SVR compatibility, but a lot of BSD packages, I can't install. This is a main...

I have been reviewing the documentation and have not been able to find anything relating to how capsicum is integrated into the OS nor how one needs to configure the program. When installing Firefox/Firefox-esr, I received a message from the pkg (line 9 is what I am referring to),
So I have these jails now, and I want to install Samba on my www jail.

In FreeBSD 13.0 there's two things about packages.
When installing new packages, for a newly available system, are latest and quarterly the same, until the next quarter comes out? Because it's too new, that it has only 1 set of pkg build on a new system? I changed my /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf from...
So I want to build an FreeBSD iso with hexedit preinstalled. I'm doing that to understand how to build custom iso's. I don't have so much idea about custom kernel build. I mean I don't know how can I do that. I take a look to GhostBSD-src and FreeBSD-src over github and see some tutorials to...
First post here - so I'm hopeful I'm for some help!
I have two FreeBSD servers running Rel 12, following output is identical on both:

Both systems have the...
I was wondering when quarterly 2021Q2 will be available in pkg. My 12.2-RELEASE-p6 machine is still showing packages from 2021Q1 quarterly, although the 2021Q2 branch is created a while ago.
While upgrading the packages in my jails as usual, I ran over this problem:

Hello. New user here.
I recently switched to the latest branch of 12.2-RELEASE-p4 and updated all my installed pkgs. Then, I installed the port system because I wanted a version of berry (x11-wm/berry) with my own patches applied. All of it worked exactly as planned and installed fine.
Sometimes, pkg gets confused and thinks a process that has long since disappeared, still holds the lock on the package database.

The output of uname -K in both host and jail is the same, currently 1202505, but when I run pkg -vv | grep OSVERSION inside the jail I get a different version:
OSVERSION = 1201512;
Any idea of what I could be missing within the pkg within the jail is returning a different version?
Using freeBSD 12.2 I try to program a pkg plugin. So far it is found by the pkg tool and gets triggered by the install operation.
To be able to compare with best practices I'd like to see some source code for a pgk plugin which is triggered just before the installation of a new package.

Hello, I have been trying to get OpenCL working and found out I needed graphics/drm-fbsd12.0-kmod in order to get OpenCL recognize my GPU.
The problem is, that module only works if it's built from ports and crashes when it's installed from pkg.
The other issue is for number of reasons I can't...
