    In my /etc/rc.conf I have the following lines : fetchmail_enable="YES" fetchmail_users="myusername" fetchmail_myusername_polling_interval="60" and fetchmail is reading my ~/.fetchmailrc command file to retreive my mails from my providers.

    OK, just for the record. I've found the problem (thanks to the dovecot mailinglist). I had the following in my 10-master.conf: service imap { service_count = 256 .... } But you can't use a service_count other then 1, when you're using...

    This may be obvious but did you do an UEFI install? If not, you may be able to boot by going into the bios. In my Asrock bios, the boot tab lists available boot sectors including MBR on usb flash drives.

    Great. That's the piece of the puzzle that I was missing, and it makes ShelLuser's confusion about my comments make sense. Thanks. October 31st is fast approaching, so time to roll out my own repo and upgrade.

    The first BETA build for the FreeBSD 12.0 release cycle is now available. ISO images for the amd64, armv6, armv7, arm64, i386, powerpc, powerpc64, powerpcspe and sparc64 architectures are available on most of our FreeBSD mirror sites. Continue...

    _martin replied to the thread gdb initialisation file.
    gdb shipped by FreeBSD (i.e. in /usr/bin/gdb) is older than devel/gdb. Newer version has some neat features. .gdbinit is sourced by gdb from $HOME, you can specify it explicitly or even tell it not to source anything. If the .gdbinit doesn't...

    Or just stop the mixed use of ports and packages. In the long run it's going to haunt you one way or the other.
  • ShelLuser
    To use a different shell for root, the toor account is available. Just use su - toor after giving toor its own password and shell through chsh. Leave root alone.
  • Crivens
    Crivens replied to the thread bash broken, cannot change shell.
    scottro - yes. It can mean anything from "My, that's interesting" to "I'm losing my temper and am going to boot someone." Creating problems by setting roots' shell to bash will likely get you half way, depending if its problems with capital P and...
  • chavez243ca
    I could be wrong, but looking at the pkg dependencies, it looks to me like: 1) clamav-unofficial-sigs depends on clamav 2) clamav and clamav-milter are mutually exclusive (one or the other)
  • chavez243ca
    Package dependencies are set in stone. Building some parts from ports will cause different dependencies to be included. This can lead to conflicts. Simple solution, don't mix ports and packages unless you know what you are doing and understand...
  • chavez243ca
    Looked at the pkg options for clamav and sure enough milter=no, removed all three packages and built from ports - I think I might have to try pkg-lock to see if I can get other pkg maintenance to not mess with those particular ports.
  • ShelLuser
    Oh, and changing roots' shell to anything outside of base and exotic is usually a recipe for doom. Rethink that.
  • grahamperrin
    I'm trying to avoid that; trying to keep what was 12 … at 12, and stable. Following the attempt above, I ran: poudriere jail -u -v stable@339445 -j current – expecting r339445 but the result was (again) r339436. Puzzling.

    It is faster to just delete the jail and create another with the new version you need/want. All packages you have built will be rebuilt anyway if you update an existing jail.
  • talsamon
    I see no sense in update a jail from one major version to the next. In such case I always delete the jail and make a new one for the new major version. I think this a much "cleaner" solution.

    There is also a way to attempt to repair the broken bash. (But like Crivens, I would probably cry "Crivens" if I heard this was for root's shell. (Only amusing if you're a Terry Pratchett fan). You can also try (I'd love to hear the result) pkg...

    circus78 If you prefer to have bash as a root shell I recommend to compile shells/bash from ports and select option STATIC to avoid these and further issues.

    kpa replied to the thread Does poudriere update its jails?.
    There are no distribution sets for current or stable, you have to install from a snapshot (from for example https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/snapshots/) or using -m src=/usr/src with the objects from make buildworld still at /usr/obj.
  • grahamperrin
    Yeah, I wondered about the time. Thanks. https://wiki.freebsd.org/PkgBase looks promising. Re: https://github.com/freebsd/poudriere/issues/337#issuecomment-429138920 I guessed that this would be the way to go: poudriere jail -c -j stable -v...

    It uses freebsd-update to update the jail, however it will only work with jails that have been created from the distribution sets using ftp and http methods. Jails created with svn method are updated by building world.

    Is this an older version of FreeBSD? The only place I've run into that was adding bash on a jail running on a host that was EOL. The exact same missing file. Some kind of pkg error. I wound up just copying /usr/local/bin/bash from another jail...
