Package repository priorities


I'm trying to use poudriere to maintain packages which need to be 
built with non-default options. I can install packages from my 
repository with the -r option but it looks like I'll have problems 
when I next need to run pkg upgrade because there doesn't seem to be a 
way to ensure that my repository will automaticallytake precedence 
over the remote FreeBSD repository for the packages I've built.

According to pkg-repository(5) I should follow the following steps

   pkg install -r repo-a example-1.0.0

and then to make updates to that package ``sticky'' to the same 
reposi-tory, add an annotation to the package:

   pkg annotate -A example repository repo-a

Things seem to have changed a bit since thw man page was created in 
September last year because I see that packages are now automatically 
annotated with the repository name:

curlew:/root# uname -a
FreeBSD curlew.lan 9.3-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE #0 r268512: Thu Jul 
10 23:44:39 UTC 2014     
root <at> snap.freebsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64
curlew:/root# pkg info pkg exim-sa-exim mod_php5
pkg-1.3.7
exim-sa-exim-4.84+4.2_1
Mod_php5-5.4.32,1

should based on my read of the man page:

Using a USB modem.

Hi there!

I've a ZTE USB modem and I want to use it with FreeBSD. I've attached it to one of the USB slots on my PC and run the
"ls -lh /dev/" command to see what's going on. I've saw that two modem devices have been created in the
'dialup' group: cuau0 and cuau1.

My question is why were two devices nodes created instead of one and how should I know which of them I need to use?

Regards,

Atar.

xterm, screen and the "Home" and "End" keys

Colleagues,

Could you please help me solve the problem with screen or xterm?

 From a FreeBSD 9.3 xterm I ssh to a remote host. The "Home" key sends
(and the remote application receives) "0x1B 0x5B 0x48" (ESC [ H) 
which is correct.

However, if I start screen on the remote host, the application within
the screen's virtual terminal receives "0x1B 0x4F 0x48" for "Home"
which is "ESC O H". It results im the "Home" and key not working
correctly in vim etc.

The "End" key has the same problem.

Could someone with a knowledge of screen and termcap in general help
me figure out why the keys are so mangled and what I could do to fix
this?

mod_jk kills NFS?

Hi,

Anytime I try to load the module mod_jk on apache2.2, on FreeBSD 9.3, it
kills my NFS client connection:

$ /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache22 start
Performing sanity check on apache22 configuration:
Syntax OK
Starting apache22.
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
nfs server oak1000:/home: lockd not responding
...

So far, the only way to stop that is to comment out the LoadModule
jk_module... in Apache configuration.

Any idea? I found nothing on Google.

TIA,

Olivier

www/horde does not run on 10-STABLE - Fatal Error: Could not pack data

Sorry for the cross-post but this is a bit out of the ordinary for me.

In short, no matter how I try varoius changes, I am unable to run
www/horde-base under latest 10-STABLE. The error is:

HORDE: Could not pack data. [pid 80949 on line 154 of
"/usr/local/share/pear/Horde/Pack.php"]

From what I gather, Pack.php deals with compressing data before cache,
maybe also before sending to browser. Problem occurs both through Apache
and with php cli.

Facts:
The same config ran on 10-STABLE mid-August
Stopped working after updating to latest 10-STABLE end last week (27th.)
Same config runs fine on 9-STABLE. Today I did a fresh 9-STABLE, got
Horde up and running fine. Updated the system to 10-STABLE. rebuilt all
ports and the error is back.

Please, if anyone has ANY idea what is going on? If I was fluent in PHP
I assume I could figure out myself...

Thank you!

controlled environment for regular expressions?

Hi all,

I am having a major problem with regular expression matching returning
different results when run from a script under cron or as a delivery
instruction from postfix rather than from the command line.

I don't even know how to debug this. These are all in scripts and
delivery instructions that I have had working for over a decade. And
when I run them from the command line, they work as expected.

The path for seeking executables should not be at issue. I use the
PATH variable in my crontabs and set it to the same PATH as at a
terminal.

I have encountered this problem with both grep and GNU sed (gsed, from
the port).

This is all stuff that worked until recently, and worked for years
under Linux. The only change I think I've made is to implement an IPv6
tunnel. I hope, really hope, I can safely say that's irrelevant.

I use zsh, also a choice that's over a decade old, for both my command
line and to run scripts.

I've never liked regular expressions. I think they are an awful
kludge. But unfortunately, a major part of my workflow depends on them
working correctly and *predictably*.

Has anyone else encountered problems with this? How do you fix it?
