restore a periodic backup of pkg db


In /var/backup is a daily backup of the pkg db. The backup is not made by  
'pkg backup', but by 'pkg shell .dump' as I read in  

How do I restore this properly?
I can't use pkg backup -r <file> because the backup is a file containing  
sql statements.
Restoring by 'xzcat /var/backup/pkg.sql.xz | pkg shell' gives errors like  
the one below. (It does not understand hex strings very well.


[root <at> sheeva /var/db/pkg]# xzcat /var/backups/pkg.sql.xz | pkg shell
Error: near line 33904: near  
syntax error

Panic (fatal double fault) in a fresh installed 10.1-RELEASE (i386) r274401 with ZFS and GEOM_ELI

tl;dr; I can't use 10.1-R after has it installed with ZFS(only)+GEOM_ELI.


The box is an old Asus eeePC 1005pe ( and I
would like to use it as a FreeBSD (i386) only machine. In the past it was
running smooth with a linux-based O.S. and FreeBSD 9.0-CURRENT (UFS-only).

Last week, when I got time to kill that old setup, I decided to run it as a
FreeBSD-only machine by ripping everything out with a brand new fresh
installation. Powered by the "new" bsdinstall(8), this step was never so
easy and quick to do and I finished everything following just some dummy
default options.

Installation image? FreeBSD-10.1-RELEASE-i386-memstick.img, downloaded from and good checksum (sha256).

1. partitions? zfs-only (auto)
  1.1. discs? only one (stripe)
  1.2. encryption? yes (+swap)
2. system components? all (doc, src, ports, ..)
3. daemons? everything (moused, powerd, ntpd, ...)
4. post install steps... reboot!

All safe and sweet after first reboot and I was able to put back some
backup configurations and installing new packages (pkg, firefox, awesome,
screen, irssi, ..., xscreensaver); but it was late and after downloading

ZFS 'mount error 5' hits production server

Hi list,

today I upgraded one of our servers from 10.0 to 10.1 with
freebsd-update. GENERIC kernel, ZFS 2-way mirror, GPT, nothing
special. After booting kernel, when trying to mount the
root file system I get: 'cannot mount, error 5' or something.

Strangely I got this error a few weeks ago at home, running
CURRENT with custom kernel:

I created the pools and datasets manually via console. Has
anything changed? With legacy mountpoint, or that one needs a
boot dataset, or something?


Configuration is:

gpart show:

=>        34  5860533101  ada0  GPT  (2.7T)
           34         256     1  freebsd-boot  (128K)
          290           6        - free -  (3.0K)

Trying to upgrade from 9.3-Stable to 10.1-Stable


Trying to compile world for upgrading I run into:

Stack dump:

Is this because the 9.3 toolchain doesn't like 10.1...??

Zpool is segfaulting

Hello !

I've juste upgraded my server from 10.0-RELEASE to 10.1-RELEASE. 
Everything went well, exception in my daily periodic report, I've found 
that the command "zpool list" is behaving strangely :

ZFS available space difference between 10.0 and 10.1

Hi all,

I updated a machine running 10.0-STABLE from April to 10.1-RELEASE and 
am noticing a discrepancy in available space on a ZFS filesystem between 

Initially upon booting 10.1-RELEASE this filesystem was reporting 0B 
avail and was unusable, though it was operating normally in 10.0-STABLE. 
I was able to clear enough space by booting back into 10.0 and removing 
files, but attempts to truncate files in 10.1-REL did not actually 
reclaim space on the filesystem. Example from 10.1:

% zpool list
seagate2tb  1.81T  1.76T  55.5G      -         -    97%  1.00x  ONLINE  
tank            -      -      -      -         -      -      -  FAULTED  
% zfs list
seagate2tb  1.76T      0  1.76T  /seagate2tb

% ls -lh /seagate2tb/isos/FreeBSD-8.1-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso
-rw-r--r--  1 mixx941  wheel   645M Jul 18  2010 
% rm /seagate2tb/isos/FreeBSD-8.1-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso
rm: /seagate2tb/isos/FreeBSD-8.1-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso: No space left

ssmtp and message ID

Hi all,

I'm using ssmtp instead of sendmail as the mailer on my FreeBSD
10.1-RELEASE box. The SMTP relay I point it to is my Synology NAS
running the mail server application. What I've noticed is that all mails
sent by ssmtp appear as having no Message ID in the log on the Synology.
I use the Synology with several other email clients, eg android phone,
ipad, kmail, alpine, thunderbird and all of them show a valid Message ID.

Do you have any idea why the Message ID isn't shown for emails sent by

Thanks for any suggestions.
