Problems following DevelopersBootStrapAndDevIso



  • I've been following the instructions on http://devwiki.pfsense.org/DevelopersBootStrapAndDevIso and have run into a few snags. I'm putting them here in an attempt to help others that might run into the same issues.

    I am doing this in a clean FreeBSD 7.2 installation in VMware Server 2.0

    First off, I edited rc.conf to clear out /var and /tmp on reboot as I was getting full disk errors:
    #edit /etc/rc.conf
    add:
      clear_tmp_enable="YES"
      cleanvar_enable="YES

    I did not create a jail or chroot environment.

    In step 2, during  the Curl install, I had to disable the IPv6 option. If you miss this and get the error "curl-7.19.6_1 does not support both c-ares and IPv6" then do the following:

    cd /usr/ports/ftp/curl && make rmconfig

    cd /usr/ports/devel/git && make depends install

    deselect IPv6 option during install

    In step 5, I had to set the server when I set the version since the default livecd site was offline. I used this command:

    ./set_version.sh RELENG_7_2 fastest_cvsup -c tld -q

    Step 6, my pfSense.iso ended up in /tmp. I copied it to /usr so it would persist.

    Using a samba share I copied the ISO out to my host (Win) system. I then setup a new VM and mounted this ISO. The pfSense boot screen showed up (so far so good!)..  BUT I get the following error (when loading the liveCD version):   /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libipx.so.4" not found, required by "ifconfig"

    I'm very new to all of this (freebsd, pfsense, etc), so I'm not sure what to do from here.  I'll try to rebuild everything, but if that doesn't fix it I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas would be helpful.

    I don't recall seeing any errors during the build, except for something related to sh and perl, which I ignored. Maybe that's the problem?

    Thanks,
    -Eric

    Having the exact same problem here…I also built the image myself following the Wiki, mounting the new .iso in VMWare and getting the "libipx.so.4" error message.

    What to do? Can anyone help?
