Packages vs ports



  • Hi,
    I couldn't find any information related to my question… I heard about packages but what about freebsd ports? Isn't possible to use the freebsd ports tree with pfsense? even without having the webgui to manipulate the conf files of those ports? Is there any problem using them?

    Thanks

    I have the same question…

    And... How I add my own program (ex: cdrtools) into pfsense and "re-make" a boot cd with it?

    It's possible but it is not supported.  You need to know what your doing if you plan to do this.

    hum… how I do this? Any docs?

    use the freebsd ports documentation, however, as someone already said… it can be a disaster  ;D

    the problem is: how integrate ports into pfsense?  ??? :o

    I want some more packages into my pfsense (ie: mysql server), but… how?  ???

    Again, it's not supported.  This means nobody is going to hold your hand to make this work.
