Re: Bug#757985: kfreebsd: hang with ENOSPC after a few components are loaded

Control: tags -1 + patch


The simple patch for this issue is as follows.  It has been tested now
on kfreebsd-amd64 and kfreebsd-i386 with varying amounts of available

  * On kfreebsd, use dynamically-sized tmpfs for:
    - /var/cache/anna
    - /var/lib/cdebconf
    to avoid running out of space in the fixed-size initrd.

FTBFS on kfreebsd-*


I have a question about this bug[1].

There are no changes at sysdeputil.c between vsftpd/3.0.2-14 and

Have one a hint where I must search this problem?

Many thanks...

10-STABLE panic in atkbd due to Qemu+virtio


I've been seeing this panic with 10-STABLE kfreebsd-amd64 snapshots from
the past two weeks or more (but not affecting our 10.0 kernel).  The
stack trace implicated atkbd, but I've just discovered it only happens
in Qemu with -net nic,model=virtio and not with model=e1000.

Is there someplace to get 'official' upstream 10-STABLE kernels?  Mine
are built with Debian's usual config and packaging, and Clang 3.4.  Thanks!

I am not no familiar about d-i and tasksel, however at least wheezy installer
is putting in "manpages" package, not freebsd-manpages. It would not be
proper state.

Bug#758687: uninstallable: xorg-server 1.16 transition

Package: xserver-xorg-video-nv
Version: 1:2.1.20-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


your package needs an update for the transition to xorg-server 1.16
which happened in July.

Your package is currently in unstable only, and uninstallable.

GPG memory is not secure.

Hi guys,

This is my first post.

I'm trying to install Yunohost (A very nice install and play, debian 
based hosting distribution : ) in a jail Debian 

You can download the ISO or install with a script from a fresh Debian.

I know the product is not support under Debian / kFreeBSD but i would 
try :

In the installation i have this message and fail :

gpg: WARNING: using insecure memory!
gpg: please see for more information
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

If someone have an idea about the problem this would be great.

kfreebsd - open-vm-tools support

[ please CC me as I'm not subscribed! ]

hi porters,

after picking the "try to support kfreebsd" patches from vmware in the
open-vm-tools package some time ago I thought it would be a good thing to give
them a try and see if it builds fine - unfortunately it does not:

Unfortunately i don't have the spare time to fix the package to build properly
(fixing vmtoolsd and friends is not enough, a -module package needs to be
created, too...) - but I'll happily accept pull requests and patches, sources
are here:

If you'd like to work on it but you don't have access to a vmware vm to test the
package please let me know.

Bug#758377: freebsd-buildutils: Do not use -fstack-protector on hppa/parisc arch.

Package: freebsd-buildutils
Version: 10.0-4
Severity: bug
Tags: patch

On the hppa arch we do not yet support the -fstack-protector compiler option, so
it needs to be disabled on hppa too to avoid clashes with -Werror.
Patch attached, please apply.

Bug#758084: kfreebsd-image-amd64 lacks support for i210 ethernet

Package: kfreebsd-image-amd64
Version: 9+1
Severity: wishlist

Could support for i210 be added to the kfreebsd i386 / amd64 images?
This is a critical piece of hardware support that makes kfreebsd-amd64
on wheezy unusable on my server. The 'if_igb' kernel module must be
updated to support this newer ethernet hardware.

Upstream added support for this hardware starting in the FreeBSD 9.1
kernel and newer.

It seems unfair that the i386 and amd64 stable branches using the
Linux 3.2 kernel had support for the i210 added to the stock kernel as
part of the stable updates, but the kfreebsd port has no such kernel

It would be appreciated if a newer FreeBSD 9 kernel could be imported to
stable as either a regular update or as part of a backport. Thank you.
