problems trying to mount SDHC card ....


.... I am trying to mount some SDHC cards through a USB reader 
(Transcend USB 2.0) with an eye towards using them to create bootable 
drives for a Raspberry Pi B+. When I try to view the drive through 
XFCE's 'flash File Manager' (from top toolbar) it pops up an error 
dialog saying:

mount_msdosfs: can't find or load "msdos_iconv" kernel module
mount_msdosfs: msdos_iconv: operation not permitted.

I am doing this as an ordinary user, something in fstab or amd.conf ? 
TIA for any clues ....

libxul port build error

Hi all,

It's been long enough now that surely somebody has run into this.
FreeBSD home.parts-unknown.org 10.1-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 10.1-PRERELEASE #0 r273441: Tue Oct 21
19:17:25 PDT 2014     root <at> home.parts-unknown.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

www/libxul won't build in the ports:

libxul-31.2.0 is marked as broken: build error on
js/xpconnect/src/libxpconnect_s.a.desc

The new version of firefox needs libxul built.

How are people getting around this?

i.e. nspluginwrapper seems to be locked in on linux-f10, rather than

this might be a bug .... TIA for any help ....

I also saw a pw of "wg" listed with no admin userid; might try
combinations of
  admin / wg, <empty> / wg, <empty> <empty
but I suspect you've already done the latter.

Have you tried actually resetting the router to factory defaults?

bridging mode, ppp tunneling, IP addrs and outgoing mail (sendmail)

I've got a gateway currently set up as follows:

ISP -- DSL Modem (a.b.c.d/30) -- (a.b.c.e/30) FreeBSD (a.b.c.f/30) ---
internal net

The internal net uses both public IPs and private IPs via aliases on the
interfaces.

The DSL modem is in bridging mode.

Inside the fbsd box I'm running user ppp which is set up to pass public IPs
and nat private IPs.  The fbsd box is also running the mail server
(sendmail).

Questions:

1. Since the modem is in bridging mode and ppp is tunneling, the IP addr on
stuff sent out from the fbsd machine carries the ip addr ppp uses, which is
one belonging to the ISP and not one of our assigned IP addrs.  As currently
set up, I'm using up 4 of the assigned IP addrs just to deal with the modem.
It seems to me none of those addrs will ever appear anywhere else, so is
there any reason not to use something from the set of private IPs for the
fbsd -- modem connection?

2. Because the ppp connection gets the IP addr assigned by the ISP and not
one from our assigned set, mail goes out with an origin IP addr which
is not our own.  Mail services which do reverse lookups therefore sometimes
reject mail because the claimed sender domain doesn't match the reverse dns
domain (or one of the mx records for the domain, not sure which).  Is there
a way to force sendmail to either:

Noob ifconfig question :-/ ....


.... I have been tussling w/ getting my newly acquired WatchGuard 
FireBox Edge firewall appliance setup. It requires a computer on the LAN 
on its own IP block (192.168.111.0/8), w/ netmask 255.255.255.0. I 
was/am trying to use ifconfig to set this box up on that block 
(temporarily !!!) to get that thing setup & configured. When I 
(successfully) reset my IP address to 192.168.111.27, I am able to 
access the device w/ my browser. However, it asked for a user name & 
passwd, which I don't have & which the manual which came w/ it doesn't 
specify :-/ .... Any clues what those might be :-) .... Slightly OT, I 
realize, however I will probably later try to change it over to *BSD, as 
per an earlier post, in case that helps .... TIA for any & all clues ....

Separately, when I reset the IP address of this box back to normal 
(192.168.0.27), I could no longer access the web, or my DSL modem (on a 
different subnet behind a router (to be replaced by the afore-mentioned 
firewall)) w/o rebooting. When I did an 'ifconfig re0', I got almost the 
same output as before my twiddling, except that the 'inet' & inet6' 
lines were switched (inet before inet6 before twiddling, inet after 
inet6 after twiddling) .... Could that be the cause of my inability to 
access the modem & web ? TIA here also :-/ ....

Hello Antonio,

Yes, I just tried Warren's suggestions.
I overlooked the kldstat suggestion in the first place.

Here is what kldstat gives

Id  Refs  Address      Size      Name
1   7     0xc0400000   1289f7c   kernel
3   1     0xc1697000   b9a0      if_wi.ko

It seems to me that if_wi.ko should be a wireless driver.

Warren's question as to why it is not associated really leaves me 
blank-faced. I have no idea.

I have never studied IT in any formal school and am closer to 60 than to 
50 years old... have been using Linux for about 5 years, and FreeBSD 
since a day. Never used a forum other than just looking for answers. And 
honestly, the suggestion in the FreeBSD Handbook to write to someone
