Dev build freesbie2 stop in build kernel



  • we have had an issue where the dev bootstrap and other build tools have not worked correctly since about the 15 january have spent a little time on finding the issue but not having much luck it is failing in building the kernel due to unknown option "enc" i am sre this is something to do with the changes surrounding ipsec but i don't know what.

    tryed developer.iso and freebsd6.2.iso and running dev_bootstrap.sh but same error occurs would love some help on this issue



  • would love some feedback on this is anyone else having trouble with dev build enviroments. or have i just started doing something wrong.



  • i know everyone i busy with the upcoming beta release, but please could someone help with a new dev.iso or something to overcome dev building issues. i can only guess it is only me having an issue. we have spent a long time using pfsense and would like to continue to contribute but without being able to add our changes into the embedded build it is somewhat unuseable.

    just a pointer in the right direction would be great



  • Building pfSense is unsupported as I have stated 1000 times in the past.

    If building pfSense and modifying it is vital to your business then please contact me and I will arrange for a quote on "Developer Support".

    In the meantime I will throw you a bone but be advised that I will not answer further developer support questions unless the person/company has a developer support agreement and or it is a developer that contributes code back to the project.

    Sorry but the developer items are just too complicated to answer on a day to day basis and are too time consuming.



  • i never once asked for support i asked if anyone else had encountered the issue

    i dont feel out of line asking if there would be a new dev iso.

    opensource project????

    keep it scott your attitude is less than acceptable i will ensure i post our patches on pppoe and other areas that i not done for a while and will remove myself from you personal mission.

    most embarrassed for having to reply at all but i feel justified, check your forums check you mailing list when there was ten to fiveteen people on this list i was there as well. the community spirit leaves a project sometimes when personal goals get in the way for me this is one of those times.



  • This IS a open source project.  You have the code.

    Just because it is a Open Source project does not mean that you can demand for all information and peoples time to be free.

    Besides, if you would have submitted code in the past all of this would be a moot point.

    Good day.



  • To further make my point, here is the history of you asking for Developer edition help, which in every case I obliged and warned that its not supported, yet the questions kept coming.

    So who really should be upset about it?  It definitely should not be you!

    Try pkg_add -rv lighttpd that solved the "dies in freesbie2" error…or you could have run the build through sh -xav which would have given you the info that it's dying when checking on lighttpd.

    i am only upset with your reply not with your support in general. the project has been great but when a forum gets bitchy it is not worth the hassle.
    no further point than that. I dont need you to reply anyone that is registed can post a reply that was all i was looking for. this is not personal and i will apologise if i attributed to seeming like it is an attack. i have not sent email to a particular person or anything else i posted a post on a forum and got told that it wasn't supported i know what i can do and when i can do it. i just wish if you don't want to help you could keep quiet then there is not problem.

    is this not a fair point. i will ensure in the future if i post a query on the dev area that i dont ask for help specificlly and then i can't get in trouble.

    thanks for you pointer bill will look into that area, i guess there are just changes to the build enviroment that are not in the dev edition as of feb. fine answer.



  • just to conclude this the issue seemed to lie with a lack of a full ports tree namely lack of /usr/ports/Mk
    this caused a bsdinstaller error that was passed over and then caused other things to fail.

    this seems to be resolved now in allowing all ports to be in the supfile.

    thanks for the help and i hope this helps others
