I'm considering creating a couple of ports. The upstream software of the ports I'd like to create compile out-of-the-box on FreeBSD which should make this fairly simple.
I've read the Porter's Handbook but still have some questions I'd like to clarify before tackling this.
1. Port location...
I have written support for DoP (DirectStreamDigital over PCM) in mpd when using OSS as output. Its really hacky but works. Now I want to integrate this (locally) into the port for mpd.
- I have created a patch file which will be appended, its structure was modified to match another patch...
I'm installing freebsd-ports but during installation I'm getting prompts to select options. actually I'm not selecting any options instead just clicking OK button which I want in automated fashion since I'm running through shell scripts.
I have tried
make ports BATCH=yes but still I'm getting...
Does anyone of you guys have experience with JavaFX on FreeBSD? Does it work or need any particular packages on top of, i.e. java/openjdk11?
I attempted to update and adopt the port for desktop/ganttproject and noticed that the latest version got rewritten to use JavaFX. I updated everything in...
I was just wondering why there is no print/pdfarranger port for FreeBSD (since even OpenBSD has one):
What I found on their GitHub issue tracker: Installation instructions for FreeBSD #381
BTW Since that one is a GTK3 GUI application, does anyone know of an equivalent that's using QT5 instead?
I'm almost done porting NsCDE (https://github.com/NsCDE/NsCDE). I'm unsure what category to put it under, however?
It's a "modern" re-implementation of CDE, which is under x11. However, NsCDE really just is a bunch of scripts based on fvwm2. I originally thought about placing it under x11-wm...
Is it possible to port bspwm-rounded-corners and picom with blur effects ?
Tried to compile bspwm-rounded-corners misses some dev libraries which I don't know if they are available on FreeBSD. Tried to search for...
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.
I have just seen that neither the signalapp / Signal-Desktop nor the deltachat-desktop app has been ported to FreeBSD yet.
Has anyone already taken a look if it's possible or to run the (Debian-based) Linux binary? Or to run the Windows app with Wine?
P.S. I'm not using FreeBSD (waiting for...
I was just wondering if someone would be interested in porting signalapp / Signal-Desktop or if there is specific reason why it hasn't been ported yet (Linux only?).
P.S. I'm not using FreeBSD (waiting for 13.0 RELEASE to go onto my new laptop) or Signal yet, nor am I a developer, so this is...

Hello. Let's say I want to check graphics/drm-fbsd12.0-kmod port to see if it is being build / going to be build for FreeBSD CURRENT-12.2. Where and how can I check that?
P.S: As someone with Linux background I am fairly new to the Port system so please rather than posting a pkg-status link and...
I'm running FreeBSD-12.2-RELEASE on VirtualBox (RAM - 5000 MiB , Processor - 1, SSD - 18 GiB) hosted by Debian Buster. Almost all of the available binary packages in FreeBSD satisfy my need. I just need to build only one package with custom options which is ffmpeg. I won't remove it's default...
Hello everyone !
So I am new to FreeBSD and am really happy to get to use this OS and this is while trying to dive deeper in pfSense firewall things.
I had a problem trying to install Composer for some PHP tests, I couldn't install it since the PHAR extension is missing from my system and the...

I wish there was a way to port LBRY Application (lbry.com)
It will be very popular and now that is in its beginning would be very useful for freebsd fans to advertise and show their operating system their video would get much attention and many views !
Its an opportunity .

I am trying to build the bacula9-server port on my FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p6 GENERIC amd64 system, but it's failing with the error message:
Linking bacula-dir ...
/usr/ports/sysutils/bacula9-server/work/bacula-9.4.3/libtool --silent --tag=CXX --mode=link /usr/bin/c++ -L/usr/local/lib...
Is it possible to get an older version of a port?
I'll explain why I need it.
I built sysutils/u-boot-beaglebone and discovered an issue when I use it with BeagleBone Black.
I checked the version: now it's u-boot-2019.04. However, the official FreeBSD 12.0 image for the BBB comes with...
Hi, I have noticed for some time that the java/eclipse 4.6 is broken due to expiring dependencies (webkit-gtk2 and webkit-gtk3).
Is there a hope for a newer version, or will the port expire end of April 2019?
I found a bugzilla ticket with an updated port for eclipse 4.11 and I am currently...
