Command prompt

  • In command prompt I can't find  packages  by pkg search command .  In repositories lack even  midnight commander ..
    What's happen ?  (pfsense 2.3.1-p5)

  • only some packages are available. not all get compiled in the pfsense pkg repo

  • Run 'pkg query %n-%v' to get the full listing of packages that are available from the repository.

    Edit: There are two repositories, pfSense-core and pfSense. If you want to see where each package was installed from you can run this:

    'pkg query %R:%n-%v'

  • Thanks ,
    but I need  access for all packages like in pfsense 2.2.5 .
    Can I  change  path to repository with other packages ?

  • You can add the FreeBSD 10.3 repository but you're very much on your own if you do so, don't blame pfSense if you break your system. To do so edit the file /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf and change it to read:

    FreeBSD: { enabled: yes  }

    Note: not tested by me at all.

  • You will break things if you do as kpa advises. Don't.
