    A possible solution to fix Open vSwitch

    I think I might have solved the Open vSwitch issue that some people have been having (including myself). So, since Open vSwitch was broken for me anyway I decided to do a little "hacking" of the files in the ports tree for OVS. I noticed that the Makefile configures OVS to be built with shared...

    mlterm package compile options

    Hi, I have recently installed mlterm on my system since it's the best (if not the only) terminal emulator with decent Arabic/RTL support (tried urxvt, but it doesn't play well with Arabic). I use mlterm because my main IRC client is irssi and mlterm works nicely with that in terms of Arabic...

    Create something like PBI with current ports/pkg system?

    After encountered a bunch of not working pkg-s and other constant problems with them I became curios about how unrightfully forgotten BPI works? Can someone summarize the mechanics? What can be made to create something like BPI with current ports\pkg system?

    Hi friends! When installs from scratch new system with llvm 6.0.1 in base, many ports installs other (older) versions of llvm. Is it needed or it is a rudiments in that ports?

    Deterministic Software Install/Maintenance Method

    All, Over the past few years have spent a significant amount of time (seemingly endless) on port/package maintenance tasks. It seems that we should be able to: 100%: Use pkg for any/all installs and maintenance tasks (if no custom config options are required) -or- 100%: Use ports for any/all...

    (Where) Are the topics mentioned in the pkg-message of firefox being worked on?

    Hello, when installing firefox from packages or ports you will be presented with this as part of the pkg-message. Sadly it doesn't mention something like bug numbers or anything like that so I think it's hard to act upon this if one wanted to get the hands dirty. It's also not clear where...

    Default Heimdal Kerberos client overlaps with the one from the ports

    Hi all, I've tried to use the built-in kerberos system in FreeBSD 11.2 which is not the latest release of Heimdal. Not that I was actually looking for the latest but I've realised that the action of exporting a specific keytab to a different path (to move it afterwards to the target server)...

    Is it possible to get the ports tree that pkg uses to build binaries, as opposed to the current ports tree?

    I do hope this questions hasn't been asked before, but I've seen no indication that is has. Here is my dilemma: I have two packages (google-authenticator and nginx) where I literally need to change only 5 lines of code in the source before compiling. Otherwise, binary packages work very well...

    Do programs such as ssh or ftp really listen on ports?

    Ive been reading about ports and its always described as http listens on port 80 or telnet listens on port 23. Is this an accurate description or whats really going on? For some reason it feels like an easy way to describe it. I would assume the nic card gets all the traffic and each network...
