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!

    Installation aborted.

    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...
    iperf-2.0.2 Array
        [0] => Requested space: 1016 bytes, free space: 10546456576 bytes in /var/tmp/instmp.37WndV
        [1] => tar: Unrecognized archive format: Inappropriate file type or format
        [2] => pkg_add: tar extract of /tmp/apkg_iperf-2.0.2.tbz failed!
        [3] => pkg_add: unable to extract table of contents file from '/tmp/apkg_iperf-2.0.2.tbz' - not a package?
        [4] => 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
    concerning iperf

    " <package><name>iperf</name>
          <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>
          <category>Network Management</category>

    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!
