MaxFrames
no, but dmesg did it (see above)
swills
ok
MaxFrames
we are way past that stage now:P
swills
ok
try manually setting it to gigabit?
MaxFrames
the problem is the freebsd driver for this adapter has a long standing problem, only works at 100 mbps
if it is set manually to gigabit, it stops working
swills
ouch
kristahi
MaxFrames: if you have time, you could try it on OpenBSD
MaxFrames
the problem is it's really pfsense (based on freebsd 10)
kristahi
their em driver lists support for your chip
I'm not sure how similar those drivers are, but it might be possible to port any fixes over
Jimlad
hello, does anyone know how to change the disk ident of a disk?
bhughes
what do you want to change it to?
anexit
Hi, trying to block some ssh brute force people. I have the following in my pf.conf file.. it doens't work;
Wait, I might see the issue;
Jimlad
bhughes: I just wanted to change it the DISK0-<SERIAL#>
anexit
nope;
http://pastebin.com/npgqCM1K
Jimlad
bhughes:to mate the location in the drive cage
*match
bhughes
Jimlad: glabel can do that, but if you want it to persist, glabel will write to the last sector of the drive
Jimlad
bhughes: yes I would like it to persist
bhughes
Jimlad: man glabel
if you've got data on those disks already, i'd be careful
Jimlad
bhughes: no date, completely new drives
bhughes
Jimlad: if you are going to partition them, you can also add labels using the gpart command
Jimlad
bhughes: Yes, I will and have created partitions with labels, but I just wanted diskid to match the partitions labels naming scheme
bhughes
the labels in diskid/ are automatic, they will go away once you add your own (iirc)
Jimlad
bhughes: so glabel create DISK0 ada0 creates a label, how does this work with diskid
bhughes
Jimlad: i have to admit, i'm unsure... i haven't labeled my drives (the diskid/DISK-<SERIAL#/> is enough for me)
Jimlad
bhughes:ok thank you for your help. I would have thought it would be a must with large storage appliances, but I don't find that much info on it
bhughes
Jimlad: i agree, but i've only got a 6 drive enclosure with serial numbers easily viewable, so i haven't had the need
Jimlad: that first place i would go look is at the handbook
mage_
hello, I have Apache in a jail A and some webapps in another jail B, the Apache does some reverse proxy for those webapps, but needs also to serve some static files .. what's the common approach for this ?
should I mount_nullfs the static dir(s) from jail B to jail A ?
Ove_
Does it have to be apache?
nginx as a caching proxy should be pretty performance.
mage_
I'm used to Apache
also I'm using mod_wsgi
and there's also a mod_cache under Apache :)
bigpic
when using freebsd-update the documentation mentions that if it updates anything to do with the kernel then a reboot would be required
mornfall
not surprisingly
bigpic
but how do you know if when that is the case?
Ive been in the habit of just rebooting everytime we do a freebsd-update
but that seams pretty heavy handed and not ideal on a production box
pandzilla
well you're not really getting a new kernel running unless you reboot
production or not
Helio-
the output should tell you if /boot/kernel/kernel has been updated
generally though, if you have a production box that can';t be rebooted you need to figure out your load balancing or database problems
xnil
i installed my FreeBSD packages through the HTTP medium, how long should i be stuck for? there's no progress meter or anythnig
bigpic
I was more so looking for the response /boot/kernel/kernel
serpn
mirrors are usually pretty quick
bigpic
we have load balancing its not the end of the world to reboot
I would be nice if the freebsd-update was more verbose and told you one way or the other
lattera
I can't wait till freebsd-update dies
bigpic
in favour of?
_mjg
i second that, depiste not using it
packaged base?
bounce
if you want rpm you know where to get it
toogley
hello. i've installed neovim with "pkg install neovim" successful, but i still can't start it. its also not listed in /usr/bin
badgerious
toogley: I think you want /usr/local/bin/nvim
Helio-
bigpic: it does tell you...
bigpic
really?
Helio-
bigpic: when it outputs the list of files it is going to install
bigpic
never seen i
maybe at the bottom?
its usually paginated
Helio-
yea, it depends
bigpic
Ill try and pay more attention
Helio-
I'm trying to see if I have a box that's out of date
there is also a trick to get the list of files it is going to update, because it stores it in the db for freebsd-update
The following files will be updated as part of updating to 10.2-RELEASE-p7:
/boot/kernel/kernel
bigpic
Yea I can see that
Helio-
there is also a /var/db/freebsd-update/install.<random>/INDEX-NEW file as well
bigpic
To be honest my opinion is that when freebsd-update install is complete
SFJulie1
hello
bigpic
It should throw up a LARGE notice to reboot
:)
make it idiot proof
toogley
badgerious: ah, right. thanks
xmj
why?
Helio-
bigpic: true, it should
xmj
you're supposed to know what you're doing :p
SFJulie1
I finally made grub2 boot on freebsd, is there a way to contribute to the documentation ? (fu*k this was hell)
Helio-
it only does that on a release upgrade
bigpic
xmj cause it makes sense
xmj
only for kernel updates
bounce
HollywoodOS makes sense
SFJulie1
grub2 docs sux big
bigpic
I have 22 boxes to update
xmj
and not every update is a kernel update.
Helio-
xmj: that's like saying running patch on something other then a tarball should rm -rf /
bigpic
and greping the list of updated files to find /boot/kernel/kernel is error prone
bounce
sfjulie1: do a write-up, offer it to grub and/or freebsd-docs@?
xmj
Helio-: doesn't follo, now
Helio-
'knowing what you are doing' is not an excuse to not clearly indicate the effects of an action, or required effects
hence the reason why it does it for a release upgrade
bounce
"required effects"?
