ksx4system
how can I install ports if portsnap is not available (weird dedicated server from OVH, you can't install from .iso)?
Neffi
ksx4system: svn. i think this is described in the handbook
ksx4system
so I can't just pkg_add -v portsnap?
Poca
ksx4system, try svn
ksx4system, pkg install svn
bankai_
portsnap and svn are both in the base now -- which version are you using? :/
robak
ksx4system: and get away from OVH, as soon and as far as you can, while you can. Consider hetzner.de or online.net.
ksx4system
robak, already using online.net too :)
OVH isn't bad anyway (especially considering that this server now works only for backups storage)
robak
ksx4system: OVH has a reall *bad* history for screwing its customers really *badly* every once in a while
ksx4system
afaik it's all right to use their servers if you don't serve warez etc
robak
I wouldnt use their service if it would be free
warez or not, they are just bad
ksx4system
perfect experience so far
at least in my case
robak
yeah, until their new world wide screw-up happens
ksx4system
link? ;)
(something about last one, please)
robak
ksx4system: google?

friends to not let friends use OVH.

ksx4system
well, my contract stops on feb 2016...
maybe I really shouldn't renew

uh. guy tries to sign-up in four hours with no previous customer history with ovh but relies for his livelihood on it going through in one go anyway? o_O
(though why you'd need "three forms of ID" to rent a server is a bit beyond me)
ksx4system
weird, they didn't want *any* ID from me
Hazuki
the 11-CURRENT media didn't see my wireless (iwn). as soon as it installed and i told pkg to download itself...error about libssl.so.8. could not use pkg after
that is some quality software
so back to 10.2 and will try and cvsup my way to CURRENT
bloody network...
Monalisa
Do you guys know of any tools that can assist building a tri-boot system? (Kali-FreeBSD-Windows7)
Poca
Monalisa, what you mean?
do you want a bootloader that is able to boot these 3 systems? Monalisa
BillyZane
hello, anyone there?
angry_vincent
BillyZane: guess?
j/k :)
BillyZane
lol
you wana know what i'm doing?
i've known about freebsd for many years
angry_vincent
no, sorry
BillyZane
and i've always wanted to try it
after something like 15 years, i'm finally trying to install freebsd on a virtual machine
i'm testing out zfs on root (Cause, holy sh*t i can do that?) and it's not working very well. i think it's the vmware virtual disk or something
when i go to select T Pool Type/Disks, it's set on stripe: 0 disks
angry_vincent
it's ok
BillyZane
i chose stripe cause i figure it's the one that has a 1 disk option
when i select stripe, i get an option <OK> <Back> , above which, is "[ ] da0 VMware, VMware Virtual S" , all of which is highlighted in blue
if i click OK, i am returned to the prior menu, "stripe: Not enough disks selected. (0 (1 minimum)
is there something i should press to make it so it's selected as an install option?
i solved the mystery
i gotta press select
err... by select, i meant space bar
Monalisa
Poca: yes, like a dual boot system, but 3 OS's instead of 2.

billyzane: you be late 15 years mon

antranigv
help
I did pkg install pidgin
but thre was no spellcheker suport
now I make'd it from the ports
how do I install the one from ports and use it?
Ove_
make install clean
If you already have the pkg installed it will throw an error when it's about to install.
In that case you just do make deinstall; make install clean
antranigv
I did pkg remove pidgin, then make install from ports
yet, I got the same pidgin from pkgs :/
Jimlad
hey, whats the minimum disk size for a 10.2 install?
Ove_
~1GiB or so IIRC.
Jimlad
really, that small
so 2GB is plenty?
antranigv
ok, I'l check that later, anyway.
koobs
i wonder if spellcheck can be packaged separately.
antranigv: might be worth asking the maintainer about that
nrzkt
Hello
maybe somebody can update https://wiki.freebsd.org/bhyve ? I have Debian 8 running since april on my BHyve without any problem :)
MaxFrames
hello
I need a way to determine the exact model of a pci device, the "friendly name", pciconf does not display it, is there a way?
in ubuntu, lspci does give the friendly name
kristahi
dmesg shows some friendly names when enumerating hardware, did you check that?
MaxFrames
right.
so, it says "Intel Pro/1000 Network connection"
there is a problem then
the nic is connected to a gigabit port on a lan switch
Jimlad
hey, quick diskid/labeling question. Freebsd 10.2 assigns a diskid automatically, how do I change it? I know i can create partition with custom labels, but how do i overwrite the device label
MaxFrames
so it should negotiate a gigabit link, but instead, it negotiates a 100 mbps link
the distribution is pfsense
turtle
have you tried fu*king with the cabling and such? gig links can be touchy
MaxFrames
I haven't touched the cabling yet
the exact adapter should be (based on an identical machine running ubuntu) Intel 82566DM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 02)
it isn't listed explicitly here: https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?em%284%29
do you think this is the problem? the freebsd driver does not completely support the adapter?
woah! lo and behold... exact same problem on exact same machine! http://superuser.com/questions/805367/freebsd-em0-fallback-to-100mbit-fast-ethernet-on-hp-compaq-dc7700
turtle
could be
i guess your nic kind of blows, i have an em that works fine but i'm sure it's different
MaxFrames
seems like there is no solution, I will need to get a pci card
Jimlad
anyone know how to change a disks diskid from the auto generated one?
swills
MaxFrames: pciconf -lv doesn't give what you need?
