Iperf Installation problem
When i am trying to install iperf
I see the following :
Installing iperf and its dependencies.
Downloading package configuration file… done.
Saving updated package information... done.
Downloading iperf and its dependencies... done.
Checking for successful package installation... failed!
I tested with the 3 latest RELENG_1 snapshots
and i get the same error
It used to work with older snapshots
Any help is appreciated
Is there a way to install it from the shell?
I found the log file : pkg_mgr_iperf.log
Beginning package installation.
Downloading package configuration file...
 => Requested space: 1016 bytes, free space: 10546456576 bytes in /var/tmp/instmp.37WndV
 => tar: Unrecognized archive format: Inappropriate file type or format
 => pkg_add: tar extract of /tmp/apkg_iperf-2.0.2.tbz failed!
 => pkg_add: unable to extract table of contents file from '/tmp/apkg_iperf-2.0.2.tbz' - not a package?
 => pkg_add: 1 package addition(s) failed
Package WAS NOT installed properly.
I think that there is a problem in the file - > http://www.pfsense.com/packages/pkg_config.xml
<descr>Iperf is a tool for measuring maximum TCP and UDP bandwidth, reminiscent of ttcp and nettest. It has been written to overcome the shortcomings of those aging tools. Iperf can also test UDP bandwidth, loss, and jitter.</descr>
if i go to -> http://ftp13.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6-stable/All
THERE is NO pkg with the name "iperf-2.0.2.tbz" BUT with the name "iperf-2.0.2_1.tbz"
So, I believe if the file "pkg_config.xml" edited , maybe iperf will be installed properly
Thanks in advance for any assistance
I too am having this problem using the latest release. Any way an admin can fix up that xml file?
Just commited a fix. Please test again in about 10+ minutes.
Working for me, thanks a lot!
