Good day friends!
I'm update host from 10.3 amd64 to 11-PRERELEASE amd64.
All as need from /usr/src/Makefile:
# 1. `cd /usr/src' (or to the directory containing your source tree).
# 2. `make buildworld'
# 3. `make buildkernel KERNCONF=YOUR_KERNEL_HERE' (default is GENERIC).
In the process of updating MySQL last week, I did a pkg upgrade and after my server rebooted, sendmail won't start: /etc/mail # make start
Starting: sendmailShared object "libdb-6.1.so" not found, required by "sendmail"

I upgraded my server from MySQL 5.6 to 5.7 via pkg install mysql57-server. After getting the changed configuration issues sorted out so I could run mysql_upgrade -u root -p successfully, it reported that practically all of my existing tables don't exist - because they are stored on disk with...

I have a feeling that I miss the obvious here, but I failed to find an answer in this forum, the handbook or the man pages.
Is there a way to (automagically) apply a patch after pkg install or pkg upgrade?
The current situation is that I have a script in /usr/local/etc/rc.d that needs tweaking...
Today I ran freebsd-update to get the latest set up security fixes. The update tool downloaded the new patches and then displayed a warning which read:
"FreeBSD 10.3-RELEASE is nearing its End-of-Life date. It is strongly recommended that you upgrade to a newer release within the next 2...
We use service nginx upgrade to do seamless restarting of NginX processes weekly due to high volume sites' having their NginX processes simply exit after a few weeks otherwise. I appreciate that this is a bandaid and shouldn't be needed, but it is. This spans dozens of machines and clients...
I'm trying to do a long overdue upgrade from samba 3.6 to 4.x (I've tried all available 4.x releases from ports, 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4), and I've run into the very strange error message in the title of this post. Why is it so strange? Well, let me start at the beginning.
I'm still trying to, for...

Is there a way to cause portmaster -a to display it's logic for adding ports?
Specifically, I have a system with perl5-5.20.3_8 already installed, but running portmaster -a stipulates that lang/perl5.22 should be installed. This, of course, fails due to conflict.
Presumably another port I'm...
Just a question, in case anyone has an answer: why does the Firefox port crash every time I update it?
Example from today's update, from /var/log/messages:
Feb 9 21:31:09 kg-core1 pkg: firefox-44.0,1 deinstalled
Feb 9 21:31:17 kg-core1 pkg-static: firefox-44.0.1,1 installed

Looked around a bit and realised it seems like FreeBSD is not having any Bitcoin wallet natively available? I would love to see Electrum ported or maybe some other Bitcoin wallet software which doesn't have to download the whole Bitcoin blockchain database...

I'd like to know if you have a good way of keeping a system completely up to date in a completely automated way.
If my understanding is correct, I can add

(Some issues in common with https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/pkg-broken-after-ugrading-freebsd-from-10-1-to-10-2.52817/, notably the lack of libucl.so.1)
Before upgrading from 10.1-STABLE to 10.2-RELEASE, pkg was working nicely. After upgrading, libucl.so.1 is missing. This seems very weird...
I have a FreeBSD installation that had an upgrade failure between 8.? and 9.4 (IIRC). In the interest of getting 10.2 working properly on the machine, I downloaded the DVD image and burned a disc. Now I'm trying to figure out how to do the upgrade, and all I can find are instructions pointing...
