Vnstat2 not installing



  • On pfsense 2.0-RELEASE (amd64) built on Tue Sep 13 17:05:32 EDT 2011

    I am trying to install vnstat2 but it fails.  Searching this forum, I found other people having similar issues with other packages.  All were fixed by an admin or other developers… I couldnt find people with the same problem for vnstat2 (as of now)...

    I get this in the package install window:

    Beginning package installation for vnstat2...

    What to do?
    Thanks!



  • According to my "visit" on the public FTP (/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8.2-release/All) , the package has been upgraded to 1.10_3 while pfsense search for 1.10_2…
    Seems that the package 1.10_2 from 8.1-release has been phased out?



  • yikes!  I just moved my machine and reinstalled on a new box and got this message.  vnstat was working great otherwise.



  • I know I am in the same boat and not knowing FreeBSD that much I am left with no options but to wait for the developers to pickup that glitch.  Too bad because I was counting on vnstat2 to monitor my bandwidth starting on the first day of my billing cycle, i.e. yesterday  :'(

    Yes it was working great…. Any clue how to install package manually?  Or should we wait for the pfsense folks to fix it?



  • OK seems that somebody finally fixed the install… its now working but I am facing another problem:

    When I go in the vnstat php page (no login) I see:

    Notice: Undefined index: totalrx in /usr/local/www/vnstat2/index.php on line 77
    Notice: Undefined index: totalrxk in /usr/local/www/vnstat2/index.php on line 77
    Notice: Undefined index: totaltx in /usr/local/www/vnstat2/index.php on line 78
    Notice: Undefined index: totaltxk in /usr/local/www/vnstat2/index.php on line 78 
    

    And all counters are zero…

    What is that?
    :'(



  • Might be luck or whatever but I clicked "Save" everywhere in the config of vnstat and now it works…
