When I run pkg install en-freebsd-doc or try to install any other package I get this:
The package management tool is not yet installed on your system.
Do you want to fetch and install it now? [y/N]: y

I installed an official snapshot of FreeBSD 10.2-STABLE onto a 4 GB SD card and put it into a Raspberry Pi (original). So it is running:
root@rpi-b# uname -a

I'm looking for a way to query the whole pkg database for reverse dependencies. What I'd like to find out is which one of the available packages depend on openssl in case I decided to uninstall it and replace it with libressl for example.
I have installed the openssl package, yet I was...
On one machine I have switched from ports to packages because of slow hardware specs (very long port build times) and have observed that pkg installs/upgrade packages to new versions that are vulnerable resulting in couple of vulnerable packages. For example I now see
pkg audit -F
I'm in the middle of setting up a FreeBSD server using Ansible and I needed to skip prompts during a pkg install command to force it into 'unattended mode'. I am relatively still new to FreeBSD and am finding my way around the handbook but mostly using man pages, but this was not quite well...
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...
I'd like to know if you have a good way of keeping a system completely up to date in a completely automated way.
If my understanding is correct, I can add
42 8 * * * freebsd-update cron
in root's crontab to have the base system (I guess that means the kernel and the programs in /bin)...
I'm experimenting with jails and I can see two ways of installing packages (using the pkg command).
For example, to install vim:
either log into the jail and run
# pkg install vim
or, from the host
# pkg -j myjail install vim
I can see the benefit of the first way (from inside the...
I stumbled upon this line in the FreeBSD official documentation:
I'm stunned because I've been looking for ways to work with FreeBSD without FTP for days and it seems impossible.
pkg install uses FTP and I find no way to globally override this
freebsd-update uses FTP and I find no way to...
Hi! I've just made a fresh installation of FreeBSD 10.2 RELEASE and I would like to install the latest version of Lumina desktop using pkg. Then, if I look at pkg.freebsd.org, inside the FreeBSD 10.x directory for i386 (http://pkg.freebsd.org/freebsd:10:x86:32/latest/All/), I see the latest...
If I have some origins set for pkg using a command like..
# pkg set -o lang/php56:lang/php54
... then how do I list and manage those settings? I.e. if I have a machine I am not familiar with, how can I check what options have been changed for pkg using the set command?
I assume Squid 4.0.1 has make errors because it was released just a few days ago? 4.0.1 also does not seem to be in the package install, only 3+ is in pkg install. How long until it is usually in the pkg install database? I tried the usual manual download, config, make, etc. And it seems to have...
