I'm trying to revive an old Asus EEE PC using FreeBSD 12.1 install and so far everything works out of the box and I'm having a lot of fun configuring and setting stuff up!
One of the things I'm facing is fitting everything onto a 4GB storage. I've seen a topic about minimal xorg install but...
For some personal interest reasons, I attempted to install FreeBSD 8 in a VM.
When I try to pkg update it, it says http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/freebsd:8:amd64/latest/ is 404ed.
pkg.freebsd.org homepage listed versions 8 and 9, but all mirrors of them give me a 404.
I am trying to locate the latest version of "ntopng", via pkg0.pkt.freebsd.org.
I can (successfully) access https://pkg0.pkt.freebsd.org, via a web browser.
However, as soon as I select a "server package set", I am presented with a "403 forbidden" message (from nginx).
So I like having packages. But far too often I end up in situations like this:
Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (5.14.2) with this library (5.15.0)
Abort trap (core dumped)
Fine, I'll just upgrade OpenSCAD then
tingo@kg-core2$ sudo pkg update -f
Hi all! how are you? :)
I have a Jail host which contains about 50 Jails. During day-to-day operations, I need to install packages, a lot of these packages are the same (nginx, vim-console, etc), it would be really good if I can make the Jail host a pkg cache server, where the Jails can use the...
Greetings to everyone.
I wish to know if there is a way to install all pkg that contains some String like for instance : "zh-" as a filter. I know that I can do that on Debian based linux distros with commands like that :
sudo apt-get install zh-* = will install all packages starting with...
Can you recommend a way to automatically check for new packages via cron?
As a first step I added a daily
pkg audit -q
but this only lists vulnerable packages.
pkg update does not what I want and pkg upgrade is one step too far.
Is there maybe something similar to freebsd-update cron for packages?
Recently updated to 2020Q3. I seem to be having issues with Python ports as I upgrade.

After a fresh install of freebsd 12.1 I changed pkg repos to latest. Did a pkg update -f. I am unable to install Firefox. I get a message saying no packages available to install matching Firefox have been found in the repositories. Will someone be willing to assist me as to how to proceed...
before using poudriere I built a bunch of "standalone" packages. ( pkg create -ao /usr/ports/packages/All, or simply by running "make package; make install" in some ports). I also created some packages with poudriere using a limited list.
My question is pretty simple, is it there any way...
if I add the -P option to portmaster, and postmaster decides to re-install pkg, I get the following:
Installed packages to be REMOVED:

The operation will free 13 MiB.

I performed this in a jail: # pkg upgrade python27 python36 librsvg2 gnutls (These packages are here just as examples, because this happens with any kind of package, since some time. Everything seems to work further fine, but I wonder what this is and how to fix it.)
Here's the start of...
I needed to install Tensorflow 2.1 for a project. Tensorflow is not available in the packages and the port is a very old version of Tensorflow (1.4 if I remember well).
So I tried to compile it from source. And, actually, it seems to be possible to compile Tensorflow for FreeBSD...

I am using poudriere on a FreeBSD 11.3 system. I want to remove a single file from the repository. Is this possible? I know I can use pkg to delete the file from the system, but I also want to remove it from the repository.
I'm running 12.0-RELEASE-p9 and I cannot find any package for the stable version of PostgreSQL 12:

A few days ago, calibre went missing from the pkg repo; this was due to an upgrade from version 3.xx to version 4.xx, so technically understandable, even if it was unfortunate for users.
Today I wanted to reinstall falkon (due to some library updates, related to other packages on my system)...
