Re: svn with Cyrus SASL authentication

I got it working by building from source as follows:

Install packages

cyrus-sasl

serf

apr


./configure --with-sasl=/usr/local

make

sudo make install



Works fine now.

Thanks.

Is that just the regular SASL option for the subversion port?

http://www.freshports.org/devel/subversion

If so, we could probably just enable it here.

There are no problems here with Firefox 37.0.1. and QupZilla 1.8.6. It
shows a download button that links to

Extreme problem - was Re: [PC-BSD Announce] PC-BSD 10.1.1 Released

On 03/02/2015, Kris Moore <kris@...> wrote:

Hello.

I have encounterd a problem, that I would class as extreme.

In having gone through the installation prodeure, and, followed the
instructions, I got a warning after the Disk summary dialogue box

"
Warning: The selected disk / partition is less than recommended 10GB.
"

in trying to install in a 93GB GPT partition.

Then, after clicking on <OK>, and continuing, the system apparently installed.

However, that is not the extreme problem.

I note that, at the end of the installation procedure, when saving the
installation configuration to a USB drive, it says to remove that and
then it will reboot.

So, I remove the USB drive.

But, it does not automatically eject the installation DVD, and,
reboots into the installation process on the DVD. With the difficulty
in opening the DVD drawer on the laptop (which is now how laptop
manufacturers design their computers - to make accessing the DVD
drawer, as difficult as possible), twenty minutes later, after having
had to shut the system down, a number of times, using the power button
(when everything goes wrong, and no other method is left, hold the
power button down for 12 seconds...), I managed to retrieve the
installation DVD.

But, that is not the extreme problem.

And, when the system boots, booting into PC-BSD, it gets to the
"starting X" message, then, that disappears, and a white rectangular
block sits in the top left corner of the screen, and, nothing else
happens, so, after 15 minues, the system has to be shut down, using
the emergency shutdown using the power button.

But, that is not the extreme problem.

What is the extreme problem, is this; the system upon which, the
installation was (yet again) unsuccessfully attempted, is a GPT
system, with two operating systems previously installed (and, the
original operating system, lost, as in not found by GRUB); Ubuntu
Linux 14.04 LTS, and, Debian Linux 7.x, and, they had been able to be
booted, using GRUB as the multiloader, and, both operating systems had
successfully been updated and rebooted, imediately before this PC-BSD
installation attempt, and, the GRUB option had been left unchanged as
the default selection, in the PC-BSD installation process;

"
Setup Mode
Advanced - checked as using GPT system

Selected Disk - whole of HDD - default - left unchanged
Selected Partition - ada0p10: 95367MB ms-basic-data) - selected
Force ZFS 4K block size - default unchecked - left unchecked
Boot-Loader - GRUB selected by default - left unchanged
ZFS Pool name - default unchecked - left unchanged
"

but, the PC-BSD installation, appears to have obliterated GRUB - and
now, whilst

"
GRUB Loading

Welcome to GRUB
"

is displayed on the screen, during bootup, no GRUB menu is displayed,
and the system will now only boot into the broken installation of
PC-BSD, and so, access to the previously installed operating systems,
of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and, Debian 7.x, is lost, and, the system is now,
broken across multiple operating systems.

If the installation of PC-BSD, being broken, was broken in its own
right, and did not interfere with the other installed operating
systems, then that would be one thing; it would be the status quo.

But, the PC-BSD installation, has broken the other operating systems,
and, the whole of the multi-boot operating system, in that, having
broken GRUB, it now prevents me from accessing the other operating
systems.

So, the whole of the computer is now unusable.

That is a problem that I class, not as critical, but as extreme.

usb wifi rtl8187l - bought via the web store

went through the pcBSD web store, to purchase an wifi adapter that just
works with pcBSD.

just recevied it, and does not appear to be initialized
by :10.1-RELEASE-p8 FreeBSD 10.1-RELEASE-p8 #0"

took it a linux laptop, and it is initialized and functions.

When I plug the USB cable ino the computer, the hd light spins, and the
green led on the adapter does flash, very briefly. I have rebooted
twice with the usb plugged into the computer.

ifconfig shows;

At this point, not sure which way to turn.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Problems With Mate Desktop After Upgrade

I upgraded my PC-BSD 10 installation earlier this morning.  I use Mate
as the desktop, but something's not working properly after I log in.

There appears to be an endless loop of some sort.  The desktop folders
as I configured them come up, but I get a series of open x-caja
windows and then the screen blanks and starts all over again.  The
menu bar doesn't appear and there's no way to stop it sort of forcing
the machine to shut down.

Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as I'd like to use Mate as
my preferred desktop.  I don't have this problem with XCFE, though I
haven't tried any of the other desktops that I've installed.

Please advise.  Thank you.

Installation problems on MBR

Hey everyone!

Last weekend I wanted to give PCBSD a spin and decided to install it on
my brand new computer. :-) I have no real experience with PCBSD but I
have been using FreeBSD since v3.4 (mainly as a server system). Getting
FreeBSD up and running is no big deal to me, but I have not had that
much experience with FreeBSD on the desktop and configuring everything
takes a while, so I thought I'd try PCBSD and maybe speed things up a
bit.

The boot drive is a Samsung SSD from the 840 Pro series. I am not a
gamer all of the time, but because I do like gaming from time to time,
a Win7 is to be installed on the SSD as well. There are other drives
installed in case I run out of room. :-)

Because Windows is a pain with GPT and UEFI, I went for MBR. I put two
partitions aside for Windows (100MB and ~120GB) and created one for
PCBSD (~118GB).

While I got FreeBSD up and running easily (including X with
nvidia-driver and OpenGL) and without any real problems[1], I had real
problems getting PCBSD to run and eventually gave up - when using the
MBR and only a partition for PCBSD.

PCBSD installed like a breeze when I gave it the whole SSD. However,
when I only assigned a single partition to it, the installation failed
every time. gpart always complained that it couldn't modify the disk.
This was an error message I have not seen before because I have never
tried to manipulate an MBR-drive with gpart. Unfortunately I left the
note with the exact error message at home. My bad. :-/ I'll have access
to it again the evening, so if anyone wants it, please ask. :-)

Note that I did modify the drive setup a bit by changing the size of
the swap space from 2000MB to 16000MB (the computer has 32GB RAM). That
however is all and IMHO should not really be an issue.

FreeBSD had no such issues, however I did not use ZFS for that but went
for the oldschool method (yeah, I'm a dinosaur) with separate
partitions for /, /usr, /var and swap.

Am I too dumb to figure this out or am I too complicated to do
something this simple or am I missing the point completely?

Thanks for reading!

Best regards,
Chris

[1] Forgot to copy the temporary xorg.conf to /etc/X11 and took me a
while to figure that out. :-)
