xtrabackup port i386

Hello,

Does anyone use xtrabackup port on i386? does it work for you on FreeBSD 10?

running xtrabackup binary I receive segfault, also tried from packages, same thing.

I want to make sure I'm not overlooking something that I've done incorrectly.

Thanks in advance!
Simon

install missing packages in tex-live

Since "tlmgr" does not work on FreeBSD, I have no automatic way to install a
mission package. In this case, I am trying to install the "milstd" package
<http://www.ctan.org/pkg/milstd>.

I have no experience in installing a package manually. I use "MikTeX" with
"TexStudio" on MS Windows and everything "just works".

I have not been able to find a decent "how-to" on this subject. I am hoping
someone can assist me until the "tlmgr" problem is fixed.

pluggin fibre moves boot disk from da0 to da1 = cannot mountroot

I think I asked this before, but cannot
find the answer in the archives.
This server has a single scsi disk, da0.
I can boot fine.

I then plug in a fibre card and attach
a fibre disk, which I want to be da1,
so that I can boot as normal.

However, now the boot stops at mountroot>
because apparently fibre is identified as da0
and the scsi disk as da1, and I cannot
boot from da0 anymore.

What is the solution to this?
Is there some device.hint option to say
that fibre must be after the scsi disk?
Or maybe some fibre delay, long enough
to ensure it's found only after root
has been mounted?

Thanks

Anton

mention authenticated SMTP from ports in Sec 28.9

I've been using smtp auth, as per handbook
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/SMTP-Auth.html
for years.

Lately I'm trying to move to binary updates on amd64,
which means not rebuilding parts of the world by hand.

So I installed mail/sendmail package which is
built with authentication support (sendmail+tls+sasl2-8.15.1).
I followed the config instructions at the end of the install
message and things seem to work fine.

I think it's worth mentioning, at the very beginning of
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/SMTP-Auth.html
that using sendmail from ports is a convenient alternative to
these instructions.

Are there any downsides to using sendmail from ports
vs the OS sendmail?

Anton

No, it doesn't. It is a known problem that has existed for a very long time.
Probably since the port was first introduced into FreeBSD.

This is an integral part of the port and it should have been fixed.

Virtualization on FreeBSD


I've recently installed FreeBSD on my home server to replace my linux 
install after getting frustrated with some of the newer software.

I'll prefix this question by saying I really like FreeBSD much better so 
far, except for the following.

One thing I really liked about my previous system was KVM, Linux's 
kernel-supported virtualization. It always worked really well.

I've been trying VirtualBox, QEMU, and bhyve with FreeBSD as a host, but 
none of them seem to work anywhere near as well as the KVM on Linux.

VirtualBox seemed to have issues with the networking.
I couldn't get KQEMU to work (it always gave me 'kqemu support: disabled' 
in the kqemu console), and QEMU was too slow without it.
bhyve looks good, but it seems from what I've read that it only supports 
FreeBSD and grub-bootable VMs.

Is there anyone who has had better success than me at using FreeBSD as a 
host for virtualization?

Thanks

Google Cloud Print with CUPS

I have a printer at a remote location that I access via Google Cloud Print.
Now, that printer shows up just fine on a Windows machine when I click
"Printers". How do I get it listed on a FreeBSD machine running CUPS?

I am sure that there are directions on how to do it somewhere, but I have not
found them yet.

Kernel panic on zfs import

I've been using ZFS on root for a few years now.  Today I noticed an 
error with /etc/localtime.  I tried deleting it, and recreating it with 
bsdconfig since I thought that would be fastest for me to fix.  It still 
listed the error but with no filename.  I think I also started a scrub 
in the background.  A little while later the system got stuck in a panic 
and reboot cycle.  I downloaded the 10.1 ISO to try to fix it.  Every 
time I try to import from the fixit it panic from zio_checksum_verify. 
What options do I have to try to recover the system?  Is there an 
illumos fixit that might help possibly?

Linux emulation ....


Something called the 'Linux compatibility layer' is mentioned in the 
FreeBSD Docker wiki page https://wiki.freebsd.org/Docker. Am I too 
presumptuous interpretting that as progress towards 64-bit linux 
emulation :-) ? TIA & have a good one.

Zpool upgrade on mirrored boot volume

Hi Folks,

I ran a ‘zpool upgrade zroot’ then saw the following:

	If you boot from pool 'zroot', don't forget to update boot code.
	Assuming you use GPT partitioning and da0 is your boot disk
	the following command will do it:

		gpart bootcode -b /boot/pmbr -p /boot/gptzfsboot -i 1 da0

zroot is our boot volume but it’s made up of two mirrored disks: ada0, ada1

Please advise how I should run the above command without hosing our 10.1-RELEASE-p15 host.

Thanks!

Doug

jail network configuration

Hi,

Is the following scenario possible (same network number):

Host IP x.y.z.1/24 on physical port 1
Host IP x.y.z.2/32 on physical port 2
Jail IP x.y.z.3/32 on physical port 2

I have doubts but wanted an expert opinion.

Thanks!
