Problems with RELENG_8_0 using DevelopersBootStrapAndDevIso procedure



  • Since build environments differ, I thought it would be helpful to report my experience in building a pfSense RELENG_8_0 image on a FreeBSD 8-STABLE i386 April 2010 system.

    In executing the DevelopersBootStrapAndDevIso procedure, the following problems were encountered:

    • Build fails because builder for php5-curl wants libcurl.so.5 but system has libcurl.so.6

    • The nanobsd version is missing several libraries

      • /lib/libipx.so.5 (prevents ifconfig from running)

      • /usr/lib/libypclnt.so.4 (prevents pam from starting so login does not work)

      • /usr/lib/libgssapi.so.10 (prevents sshd from starting)

      • /usr/lib/libasn1.so.10 (prevents sshd from starting)

      • /usr/lib/libroken.so.10 (prevents sshd from starting)

      • /usr/lib/libkrb5.so.10 (prevents sshd from starting)

      • /usr/lib/libhx509.so.10 (prevents sshd from starting)

      • /usr/lib/libgssapi_krb5.so.10 (prevents sshd from starting)

    I did not check the iso version since I am using a soekris net5501 with compact flash. Is there interest in having me contribute fixes for these problems?

    Seems that something is out of sync there. I haven't done a build in a while, but I do know that the target being actively maintained is 8-STABLE and not 8.0. I think it's called RELENG_8_1 in the builder code.

    Is there a reason you are specifically trying to use RELENG_8_0?



  • As far as I know, there are currently no pre-made configuration files in the tools repository for building RELENG_8_1.  Maybe one should be added into the folder containing other preset configurations.



  • I'm pretty sure you're getting that because you're building RELENG_8_0 on RELENG_8, it pulls some things from the builder's OS so it needs to match.



  • I think I'm getting a similar error - but using RELENG_8_1…
    I'm trying to build the developers ISO for pfsense and following the instructions same as above...

    Everythings seems to go fine until the "BUILD ISO" step.
    And I get this error:

    Checking BSDInstaller health... dfuife_curses missing [ERROR!]

    Does anybody have any tips?

    Build the bsdinstaller ports on your builder and re-run.
