    Solved synth status: culprit: cad/astk-serveur

    I have problems running synth status for the first time: $ sudo synth status sysutils/sl Builder mounts detected; attempting to remove them automatically ... Dismounting successful! Regenerating flavor index: this may take a while ... Scanning entire ports tree. progress: 5.49% culprit...
  2. devel/py27-setuptools orphan issues

    It appears devel/py27-setuptools was moved to devel/py-setuptools this morning. Since I'm not using binary packages (using Synth), this will not be automatically fixed for me - so I issued the command : sudo pkg set -o devel/py27-setuptools:devel/py-setuptools That went fine, but synth is still...
  3. Solved ports-mgmt/pkg Upgrade Issue?

    I originally installed ports-mgmt/pkg by doing /usr/sbin/pkg bootstrap and now I'm not sure how to upgrade it. I'm using ports-mgmt/synth to maintain my ports, but the port does not exist in my custom repo. I do not want to install it from the FreeBSD repo, as the I will run into dependency...

    Synth restarting application after update

    I use synth exclusively on my system. It works perfectly, with one exception. Some applications such as "dovecot" will fail after being updated if they are not restarted. How can I get synth to restart this application, in this example "dovecot" after it is rebuilt?

    print/ghostscript9-agpl-base: failed option check.

    Hi. I am trying to get rid print/cups but I am experiencing problems with print/ghostscript9-agpl-base while using ports-mgmt/synth, when OPTIONS_UNSET = CUPS. In any of those scenarios print/ghostscript9-agpl-base build without problems but: DEFAULT options and no CUPS in OPTIONS_UNSET =...
  6. Solved Synth Question ...

    I'm new to ports-mgmt/synth (just installed) and previously have been using ports-mgmt/portmaster for years. My question is - when I run synth status, it shows : Querying system about current package installations. Stand by, comparing installed packages against the ports tree. These are the...
  7. gvfs smb does not mount

    Hi everyone, After some of the system upgrades (I'm using synth) SMB gfvs functionality in x11-fm/pcmanfm stopped working. At the closer look I've noticed that devel/gvfs still depends on (and installs) net/samba-libsmbclient which the ports system now says is obsoleted: Port...
  8. Synth builds all packages even though "fetch prebuilt packages is true"

    Hello! I've always found mixing packages and ports to be the biggest pain point in using FreeBSD. Right now I only have two things I build from ports: audio/musicpd in order to avoid a ton a X-stuff I don't want and sysutils/bareos-server in order to build againt postgresql96 instead of 93...
  9. Solved Maintaining packages with custom options

    Hi all, I'd like to follow the quarterly package repository (because I value stability and reliability over new features), but I need to have a few packages compiled with custom options, and this results in a problem: Ports does not have a quarterly release, only a "rolling release" of sorts...
  10. PECL-Redis for PHP71

    Hello! I'm kind of lost while I'm trying to install the new PECL-Redis on my PHP 7.1 installation. I'm using Synth on my base system to build Packages for my jails. I have jails with different apps running different PHP versions (php56, php70, soon also php71). Until recently it was fairly...
  11. Solved build of nghttp2 fails

    Hi! I'm having a problem building nghttp2 (and the programs that depend on it) with Synth. The build stops, these are the last lines I get: libtool: link: ar cru .libs/libnghttp2_asio.a libnghttp2_asio_la-util.o libnghttp2_asio_la-http2.o libnghttp2_asio_la-ssl.o libnghttp2_asio_la-timegm.o...

    synth: understanding dependencies

    Hi, so far, ports-mgmt/synth has been doing extremely well with all special wishes I had so far :) Unfortunately, now as I try to update deskutils/tine20 to a more recent version, I have a hard time understanding how runtime vs. buildtime dependencies are taken into consideration (if that is...
