    Thank you, running gitup ports again fixed this issue. Marking this as solved.

    Found some old code from four years ago and managed to build a PXE bootable ISO of v10.1-RELEASE-amd64. There's no added packages or configuration yet, but will try to figure what is involved.

    Some usage tips then perhaps. Use ZFS, this is a no-brainer, if you have ZFS configure poudriere to use it. Creating a clean jail for a job is MUCH faster if it can just clone a jail. Enable TMPFS. This will also speed up building as the...

    Similar to how ezjail or bastille does, create a base jail and use links to mount or direct the base jail to a common image. Because FreeBSD has a nice and clear split between the OS en third party applications this works rather well. A LOT more...

    SirDice replied to the thread 32-bit installation problems..
    It doesn't have a DVD drive either, so I assume it's an external DVD device? And it should be able to boot from an USB stick. Note that with 13.0-RELEASE i386 is now Tier 2.
  • ThomasAdam
    Yes, it's confusing. I wouldn't worry about it for now -- it's purely optional at this point. But the following commit might make this easier in terms of reducing the amount of scope (I've heard some packagers in Linux distros needing to...
  • ThomasAdam
    That's why it's optional at compile time for now. I'm either going to kick out FvwmPrompt and form something like "FvwmGoodies" which includes all these external programs, or I'll make more of an effort in increasing Go's use. The original aim...

    SirDice replied to the thread Bridge Configuration Not Working.
    Actually, it doesn't fix your issue. All this does is create the bridge but now it doesn't get an IP address anymore. ifconfig_bridge1="addm igb3 addm igb4 addm igb5 inet 10.11.17.129 netmask 255.255.255.192" That fixes the issue. Or to make...

    I could make this a lot easier by using Go's vendor modules, that way I'm bundling known version which work, in the repository, which would make packaging those a non-issue. Would that work for you? Thomas

    So everyone and everything that writes to the share writes as root? That's not really safe you know.

    scottro replied to the thread Why FreeBSD secret tricks?.
    It's worth noting sysrc isn't confined to /etc/rc.conf. For example, if you prefer using /etc/rc.conf.d/, there's the -f flag. sysrc -r /etc/rc.conf/sshd sshd="YES" It can be used in other places too, such as /boot/loader.conf.

    Zirias: You have enough RAM, the intermediate files are probably being kept in file system cache. And you have a reasonably fast file system, with the speed of 3 hard disks for writes, 4 for reads. And not very many cores. Still, I'm surprised...
