Vnstat2 errors

  • Running 2.1

    Have vnstat2 1.11 installed from
    Created my databases with vnstat -u -i re0, vnstat -u -i re1, and vnstat -u -i re2

    Now when I run vnstati, I get libgd errors:

    [2.1-DEVELOPMENT][root@pfsense]/root(14): vnstati --help
    /libexec/ Shared object "" not found, required by "vnstati"

    When running vnstat, I get segmentation faults:

    is part of
    pkg_info gd-2.0.35_7,1 -L
    Information for gd-2.0.35_7,1:


    I would have to guess you don't have that package or an older version like or something - do a pkg_info and should show you all the packages you have installed, do you have gd-something?

    how exactly did you install the package, normally it should of grabbed/verified dependencies.

    why is your not in lib?  why yours is /usr/lib32/

    I do not even have that directory - what is your ldconfig -r look like, so for that first its here for me

    search directories: /usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/lib
    109:-lm.5 => /lib/

    I think your seach path for libraries is off for some reason?

    then why are you showing this??

    usr/local/bin/vnstati: => /usr/lib32/ (0x280a1000)

  • No idea.

    Anyone have any ideas?

  • @akghetto:

    Have vnstat2 1.11 installed from


    Just tried the following:

    [2.1-DEVELOPMENT][root@pfsense]/root(20): pkg_add -r

    you installed vnstat from i386 repo and gd from amd64 repo.

    what pfsense version are you using? i386 or amd64?

  • doh!


    So where do I get vnstat for amd64?

  • booya!

    Also had to pkg_delete and pkg_add gd, jpeg, freetype, fontconfig, and even bandwidthd BUT IT'S WORKING!

    Thanks for the catch marcelloc, and for the investigative work that got us there johnpoz.
