AppCafe Problem

Just curious about an apparent omission.  While ClamTK is available on 
AppCafe, ClamAV is not.  This is curious, as the tool kit is useless 
without the base program.

Retired and rusty as I am, and being at best a superficial C programmer 
anyway, I found the ClamAV source code and successfully compiled and 
linked it without errors.  But now how do I get ClamTK to find and 
activate ClamAV?  I am a Linux/HP-UX person, and BSD seems to store 
everything in a different place.  I can't figure out h0ow to make the 
two packages connect.

Thanks for any help that you might offer.

Warden fail



Hi, Using warden I noticed a bug in it's jail creation code. Pinpointed to certain lines in the functions.sh file: 5051525354555657585960616263
### Download the chroot
downloadchroot() {

  SYSVER="$(uname -r)"

  local dFiles="base.txz doc.txz games.txz"
  if [ "$ARCH" = "amd64" ] ; then
     dFiles="$dFiles lib32.txz"
  fi

  # Set the mirror URL, may be overridden by setting MIRRORURL environment variable
  if [ -z "${MIRRORURL}" ]; then
    get_mirror
    MIRRORURL="$VAL"
  fi
The SYSVER= is wrong as it will want to fetch FreeBSD-9.1-RELEASE-p3 which isn't avaialble in the mirrors but -RELEASE is So you will get errors like:

Using mirror: http://mirrors.secution.com/pc-bsd

Fetching jail environment. This may take a while...

Downloading http://mirrors.secution.com/pc-bsd/9.1-RELEASE-p3/amd64/dist/base.txz ...

fetch: http://mirrors.secution.com/pc-bsd/9.1-RELEASE-p3/amd64/dist/base.txz: Not Found


I temp fixed it by changing the SYSVER arg to 9.1-RELEASE but I would like it fixed for the rest.

A failed drive causes system to hang

Cross-post from freebsd-fs:
http://docs.freebsd.org/cgi/getmsg.cgi?fetch=333977+0+archive/2013/freebsd-fs/20130414.freebsd-fs

I have a failing drive in my array. I need to RMA it, but don't have
time and it fails rarely enough to be a yet another annoyance.
The failure is simple: it fails to respond.
When it happens, the only thing I found I can do is switch consoles. Any 
command hangs, login on different consoles hangs, apps hang.
I run PC-BSD 9.1.

On the 1st console I see a series of messages like:

(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error 5, Periph was invalidated
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): WRITE_FPDMA_QUEUED

I've seen it happening even when running an installer from a different 
drive, while preparing installation (don't remember which step).

I have partial dmesg screenshots from an older failure (21st of December 
2012), transcript below:

Screen1:
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): FLUSHCACHE40. ACB: (ea?) 00 00 00 00 (cut?)
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Unconditionally Re-qu (cut)
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error 5, Periph was invalidated

00

(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): WRITE_FPDMA_QUEUED. ACB: 61 03 7b(cut)

00
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error 5, Periph was invalidated

Screen 2:
ahcich0: Timeout on slot 29 port 0
ahcich0: (unreadable, lots of numbers, some text)
(aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): ATA_IDENTIFY. ACB: (cc?) 00 (cut)
(aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error (5?), Retry was blocked
ahcich0: Timeout on slot 29 port 0
ahcich0: (unreadable, lots of numbers, some text)
(aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): ATA_IDENTIFY. ACB: (cc?) 00 (cut)
(aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(aprobe0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error (5?), Retry was blocked
ahcich0: Timeout on slot 30 port 0
ahcich0: (unreadable, lots of numbers, some text)
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): WRITE_FPDMA_QUEUED. ACB: 01 (cut)
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error 5, Periph was invalidated
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): WRITE_FPDMA_QUEUED. ACB: 01 (cut)

Both are from the same event. In general, messages:

(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Error 5, Periph was invalidated
(ada0:ahcich0:0:0:0): WRITE_FPDMA_QUEUED.

are the most common.

And one recent, though from a different drive (being a part of the same 
array):
fuse4bsd: version 0.3.9-pre1, FUSE ABI 7.19
(ada1:ata0:0:0:0): READ_DMA48. ACB: 25 00 82 46 b8 40 25 00 00 00 01 00
(ada1:ata0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(ada1:ata0:0:0:0): Retrying command
vboxdrv: fAsync=0 offMin=0x53d offMax=0x52b9
linux: pid 17170 (npviewer.bin): syscall pipe2 not implemented
(ada1:ata0:0:0:0): READ_DMA48. ACB: 25 00 87 1a c7 40 1a 00 00 00 01 00
(ada1:ata0:0:0:0): CAM status: Command timeout
(ada1:ata0:0:0:0): Retrying command

A thing pointed out on freebsd-fs is that driver changed from ahcich0 to 
ata0. I haven't done any configuration here myself. Have you changed 
some defaults?

Automounting problem usb hd w/ UFS filesystem

Hi,

I have a 1TB usb harddisk which I want to use for backups.
For this purpose I replaced the FAT filesystem by UFS2
w/ softupdates and journaling.

When I replug the device, the Mount Tray suddenly terminates
(segmentation fault, terminal output below). Once restarted, MT is
unable to detect the device, although it shows up in dmesg and can be
mounted manually. MT used to work fine with the FAT filesystem.

Did I format the usb drive incorrectly, or is this a bug in MT?

Commands used for ufs replacement (non-root):

$ fdisk -BIv da0
$ bsdlabel -w -B da0s1
$ newfs -L packardbell -U -j /dev/da0s1a

Outputs:

Sound settings aren't saved after reboot.


I've just recenetly installed PC-BSD on my home machine and I am very 
impressed with the Isotope Edition.

I've run into a problem that I hope someone can help me with.

FreeBSD detects 4 different pcm devices.

pcm0: <Realtek ALC888 (Analog 7.1/2.0)> at nid 20,22,21,23 and 25,26,24 on hdaa0
pcm1: <Realtek ALC888 (Front Analog Headphones)> at nid 27 on hdaa0
pcm2: <Realtek ALC888 (Rear Digital)> at nid 30 and 31 on hdaa0
pcm3: <NVIDIA MCP78 (Digital)> at nid 5 on hdaa1

Once the machine is booted into kde, the default is pcm3.  I load the 
sound configuration in the control panel and change the default to use 
pcm0.

However if I shutdown the machine and reboot it changes the default back 
to pcm3.

Can someone enlighten me as to the specifics of where it's setting this at 
and how to track down what's resetting that parameter.

Thanks,

Ted Hatfield

Fwd: [PC-BSD Announce] PC-BSD 9.1 now available!

Hello.

Forwarding the message below to the list, as Reply did not default to the list.

I  downloaded the first ISO from AARnet, which is the source I will
probably use for the second.

I assume (but am not sure) that running it live from the optical disc,
is done from the same ISO as the installation ISO.

Hello.

Thank you for that.

I am in the process of downloading a copy of the amd64 one, then I
will download a copy of the i386 one, to find whether I can get them
working (you may have previously read that I managed to get a copy of
v9.0 i386 installed on a laptop, but could not get it to boot, so I am
varying the conditions and intend to retry with 9.1).

Out of interest, do you have any idea of roughly how many PC-BSD users
exist in Australia?

drivers for BMC43142 and/or AR8162 chips

Hi,
I've installed pc-bsd 9.1 on my new laptop ASUS X201E, which was 
originally running ubuntu, after a little struggle to get it booting I 
am up and running although I have no network access whatsoever as the 
Ethernet device is Atheros AR8162 and wifi is hybrid Broadcom's 
BMC43142. After looking around I'm not sure if there are any bsd drivers 
available or any other way to get it running, at least one of them, 
preferably the wifi as I can live without wired connection. I've been 
thinking about going the ndisgen way but there are no winXP drivers for 
these chips. Does ndisgen support ndis 6.2, can use win7 drivers? Any 
ideas what to try or even just a general approach what way to go.
Thanks.

Network install media

Hi,

I don't think I was able to find install media that'd fit a
cd which allows me to do a network install of pcbsd.

Should I use FreeBSD -boot.iso and extract some of the tarballs
manually?

The machine I was trying to install on doesn't boot from usb
mass storage even though it's supposed to and I didn't want
to waste a DVDROM.

What's the suggested process?

We'll need more information in order to help you.

Which version of PC-BSD? 

Does the NTFS partition show up in Mount Tray? http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Mount_Tray

What is the output of ifconfig? http://wiki.pcbsd.org/index.php/Network_Configuration#Troubleshooting_Network_Settings
