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...
This is my first post, I hope I can explaing my self in english, my natural language is spanish, and I speak/write very bad in spanish too :D

In the company I'm working for, we've been using gitlab for quite some time, long before the gitlab package in the ports tree arrived.
Because updating it purely from it's sources can be quite difficult from time to time, we would now like to switch to the ports package.
The way gitlab works...
poudriere is updating a ports tree, and it's outputting several of these lines:
Couple of questions about portmaster.
Given that the documentation and some tools related to the "ports" system regard programs installed from binary package repository as "ports", does that mean:

Hello FreeBSD forum!
I just installed FreeBSD for the first time and wanted to upgrade the whole system. (I'm planning on only using the pre-compiled packages, if that matters. And I have ran the
# /usr/sbin/pkg command)
But did I understand correctly that if I run
# freebsd-update fetch
Is it still bad practice to update installed ports with Portmaster -a or -af? In this 15799 user "phoenix" says, that
Is this information still valid? The FreeBSD handbook recommends just to use:
and if that fails, then:
Recently I updated my server FreeBSD server to 10.3 release. I have a few jails at that server and one of them with DNS. I used to work with Bind and expected to install a fresh one to the jail, in case that Bind isn't part of the base system since 10.0 release. When I check my jail I...
I'm trying to update the base system of the jails on my host. I created the jails using EZJail. On the host or on the jails, I think the correct way to check if my base system is up to date is to call
# freebsd-update fetch
This way I get a list of available updates. If the list is...
I have upgraded host from 10.1 to 10.3. After that i coudn't start ezjail. I edited fstab.jail_name
/usr/jails/basejail /usr/jails/jail_name/basejail nullfs ro 0 0
After that it started. I stoped it. Updated jail with
ezjail-admin update -U -s 10.1-RELEASE

I have successfully set up FreeBSD 11.0 on a Raspberry Pi model B+, using ISO images from the Wiki page. My current running version is
FreeBSD 11.0-STABLE (RPI-B) #0 r308738: Thu Nov 17 06:47:11 UTC 2016
This is several months out of date... in fact, I see there was a release just yesterday...
I am using sysutils/qjail for my jails (qjail-5.0). My host system is: FreeBSD 11.0-RELEASE.
Normally I would fetch the hosts' ports tree:
portsnap fetch update
Then I would update the ports tree of the jails:
qjail update -p
I would normally then be able to list packages which could be...
I'm getting the following 'database disk image is malformed' error messages that are preventing portmaster -a from updating any ports. Does anyone know of a fix for this?:

I regularly update my 2 FreeBSD servers using freebsd-update fetch install and portmaster -a.
Both running as VM on VMWare ESXi v6.5.
After last update both servers are responding extremely slow, especially ssh logins and using su to get root, and SHA256 checksums when upgrading ports...
I have a problem with Windows 10 Anniversary update on bhyve.
When I try to update, installer reports too low memory! (At least 2GB required)
I've set 8GB, task manager shows 8GB, available is 7GB.
Is this the problem with bhyve?
I have Hyper-V as well and there wasn't any problem with the...
I just got FreeBSD running on a raspberry pi. I tried a few different ISO files before finding one I could successfully boot.
The one that worked for me was FreeBSD-11.0-RC3-arm-armv6-RPI2.img.
After install I realised there is not only 11.0-RC3 available, but also 11.0-RELEASE.
I'm brand new...

I followed the update instructions here to update from 10.1 to 10.3. My only way of accessing this server is via ssh, and I have now been locked out (the ssh address is no longer known by my PC). Are there any steps to take / configurations to check to prevent this from happening again? I cannot...
Sorry for creating a new thread but I thought it would be better to start a new one either to respawn the old one.
But I didn't understand from an old discussion if it was a bug of ezjail-admin or it was a normal behaviour. But how to update jails in that case? And how do I understand update is...
