Decyphering boot time messages…

  • There are a few messages I get booting the system that are questionable:


    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare byte_convert() (previously declared in /usr/local/pkg/ in /usr/local/pkg/ on line 322

    Filter reloads get stuck with this message, so is this the cause?

    Checking for nat PF hooks in package /usr/local/pkg/


    Warning: file_get_contents(/usr/local/etc/squidGard/blacklist.files): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/local/pkg/ on line 585

    Reinstalling squidGuard fails, reinstalling squid fails, and why don't packages generate/install all the files they need, even if they are empty blanks?


    rm: /tmp/config.cache: No such file or directory

    Is it supposed to be there?

    And where do I find these messages? They are not in syslog, so unless I sit with the camera in front of the console and take screen shots the old-fashioned way, I can't even read these messages…

    Looks like the first error is from having both the Backup package and FreeSWITCH installed. We fixed some similar errors several months ago, that may have been missed at the time.

    It's possible that the filter reload issue is related.

    The squidGuard error has been happening to some, but I haven't been able to reliably see it.

    The last one should be fairly harmless, but where did you see that exactly? On the system console? What messages were around it?

    I just committed a fix for the squidguard error.
