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...
Last week I tried to upgrade from source from 10.3-STABLE to 11.2-STABLE on my laptop but the new kernel (GENERIC) failed to boot.
I thought that it might be safer to upgrade from binary, so I built and installed 10.3-RELEASE in order to get freebsd-update working and then I...
I want to upgrade my freebsd server into 11.2 version, I've an error.
Commands and results :

I've read that the release announcement of 11.2 will be in the date 27/6 of this year.
My question is: it worth to download an install 11.1 and then make an upgrade from there, or should I wait (something that I could do) and download the 11.2?
A time ago, I had no idea that FreeBSD 10.3 didn't work if i installed it. At least in my case. I never knew why.
Anyways, this post it's not about my problem with previous versions of this OS, but it's about how can I make a full upgrade of the entire system.
I mean: when FBSD 11.2 will be...
Hi I recently upgraded my system from 11.0 to 11.1. I also upgraded my jails with ezjail per this guide, basically using ezjail-admin update.
However, now when I tried to install a port inside a jail, I got this error:
[root@jail_foo /usr/ports/www/node]# make install clean
/!\ ERROR: /!\...
So, I recently upgraded from 11.1-RELEASE to 11-STABLE. Is it a good practice to update the efi partitions bootloader? So basically, mounting the msdosfs and replacing the current BOOTX64.EFI with the newly build loader located in /boot/boot1.efi?
Trying to upgrade an 11.1 installation. All installations have been through Ports.

For those of you who are following my experience with FreeBSD and a hard disk failure, the is system install v2.0. If you are new to my little story, then you can catch up at the following links...
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:
1. We can use tools like portmaster to manage everything, regardless of the way it was...
I have a jail which depends on Python3 with some packages I have installed via pip. With every major upgrade of Python3 I have to reinstall all packages via pip which itself has to be installed via '-m ensurepip'. Is there some better routine to upgrade Python3 as this is prone to...
Today I made an upgrade of new packages, of which there were many (like all the stuff I use), but the custom configuration appears to be overwritten.
Specifically, I had to manually rewrite the X display manager resources and scripts, and my GWorkspace/WindowMaker integration started to...
I have a FreeBSD for developing purposes running as a client in an Oracle Virtualbox with version 11.0
From time to time I do freebsd-update to get the kernel up-to-date, but for some weeks now it urges me to upgrade to release-11.1.
This is the result:
After upgrading my box from 11.0-STABLE to 11.1-RELEASE my OpenVPN client fails with:....

Good evening, y'all,
I recently tried updating my secondary droplet to 11.1 using the freebsd-update instructions. It worked great on my VM machine and seemed to work great on my droplet. I finished the first reboot, ran `freebsd-update install` and it seemed to be going well then things...
I have a few machines running on Amazon cloud (EC2) and I was going to update them to 11.1 today. But all of them hangs in the loader after the upgrade. (If I install a new machine with 11.0 and then updates it works just fine. But my old machines hangs).
I noticed this problem already in...
I upgraded work host to 11.1-RELEASE this morning using the following commands:

As of now I have installed the latest version of gdb via the package manager (7.9.1). The binary gets installed as /usr/local/bin/gdb which is apparently a symlink to /usr/local/bin/gdb791. The version which comes with the system is at /usr/bin/gdb which is an older version (v6.1.1).
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
