    I do not have anything against UFS as I stated here - it still has its uses - https://is.gd/bsdstg - but You have to be REALLY low on memory to not use ZFS :) For example I have run 2 x 2TB ZFS mirror with 512 MB RAM along with running other...

    And yet you still haven't provided objective reasons to adopt this filesystem, nor did you mention practical deficiencies given a set of use case scenarios. I can tell you've been spoiled by the GPL and like-minded individuals; your sense of...

    If it is so good, why isn't it the default on Linux? (Personal comment: I actually think that XFS is a pretty good file system, and I know some of the people who developed it personally, some are neighbors, some are colleagues. One of its great...

    Which part of the title (XFS on BSD) – or the opening post – excludes discussion of FUSE-based approaches to XFS on FreeBSD? You meant fsck XFS.

    Yes and no. In general I think the move from illumos to ZoL and making ZoL THE reference implementation is crowdsourcing around a popular, but inferior, implementation. ZFS was always a "good enough for now" stopgap. I wanted hammer2 for years...

    Very nice, now it al seems to work as it should! I hope you can follow the things that happened along the command sequence you issued. My guess it that somehow at some moment something went wrong with your /var/db/ntp/ntpd.pid. What I know...
  • grahamperrin
    This looks and works as it is supposed to: promising. You had ntpd already running (from boot) and you succesfully stopped it via service Next try these and with output, as root again: ps -auxww | grep ntpd service ntpd start ps -auxww | grep...

    With rm?
  • grahamperrin
    Thank you. That number "70107" is the PID (process ID) of the ntpd. With a running ntpd the number in /var/db/ntp/ntpd.pid should be the same as the PID you see when running ps (second column): ntpd 70107 0.0 0.1 21864 6552 - Ss...

    You wanted me to run these next two commands as root as well, correct? I am new to Unix, so I need to know when I should run commands as root. Needless to say, I did run them as root. Here it goes: root@<hostname>:/home/<username> # ps -auxww |...
  • grahamperrin
    As root, could you execute and show the output of the following commands: ls -l /var/db/ntp/ntpd.pid Check if ntpd is not running with: ps -auxww | grep ntpd Start ntpd manually and not via the service command (note: this is one line!)...

    You wanted me to run all of the commands as root, correct? I did (and my command prompt of # should reflect that). Someone please let me know if it was unsafe to run any of these commands or post their output. I replaced my hostname with...

    grahamperrin reacted to Erichans's post in the thread Time Is UTC, but Time Zone Is Local with Thanks Thanks.
    Yes, you understood correctly, as root. You already had a ntpd running; that is why you saw: 4 Dec 19:19:05 ntpd[57676]: unable to bind to wildcard address :: - another process may be running - EXITING I suspect there is something wrong with...

    Can the request be made only if a reader points (without clicking)? Visually, much the same way that Bugzilla itself presents the summary line of a linked bug, as a hover tip, only if there's pointing at the link.

    OK, I'm an idiot. Apparently the gifconfig_gif0 doesn't work any longer, per one of the mailing lists. Instead, it should be ifconfig_gif0="tunnel <my IP> <HE's IP> and sure enough, that does the trick.

    More irrelevant nonsense. Now you're adding a non-static inner class instead of a method. The result is the same. You need an instance for non-static classes just like you do for non-static methods and variables if you want to access them in a...
