I ran a uname on one of my FreeBSD hosts this morning and saw that I was running 12.0-RELEASE-p2:
root@bil-desktop:~ # uname -a
FreeBSD bil-desktop 12.0-RELEASE-p2 FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p2 GENERIC amd64
I thought I'd upgraded this to latest, so went ahead and did a freebsd-update...
Does someone know when we can expect the Postfix branch version 3.4 in ports tree?
The software is already ready since end of February and current version is 3.4.5 .
I do not want to install by myself from source. The old one 3.3.4 is legacy release and is availbale from ports of...
I am working on a solution for mass jails deployment based on ZFS datasets and unionfs.
A jail template is created by extracting base archive into the dataset. Then the dataset is mounted read-only in all the jails' roots and each jail has its own lean dataset, where only the deltas are stored...
I am trying to update FreeBSD 11.1 with SSH as Root User. But i got a "Command not found" message when i try "freebsb-update fetch". "freebsb-version" also does not work...
I guess it's a small Problem but i don't get it :(
I hope someone can get me a hint, what im doing wrong.
Just looking through and trying to install a newer package I saw in the ports section of the site and I noticed this:
What it appears to be is after doing this:

I cannot seem to install the newest version of elasticsearch and it does not want to update...
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...

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

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

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 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...
