Pf 2.01 Release and Virtualbox ose addition



  • hi , i m using Virtualbox in Windows and 2.0.1-RELEASE (i386) built on Mon Dec 12 18:24:17 EST 2011 as

    guest, before upgrade i use Pfsense 2.0 rc 1 and add package using 'pkg_add -r virtualbox-ose-additions'.

    Its run fine but now i cant , when i tried to add that package its says "unable to get URL file

    unavailable, file not found, no access. Unable to fetch by URL". Is there any workaround to add this

    package?

    TQ

    This is not a 2.1 issue.

    The problem is that FreeBSD archived the packages for 8.1 so you need to either change where pfSense is looking or tell it where the file is directly. E.g.

    pkg_add -r ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/i386/packages-8.1-release/All/virtualbox-ose-additions-3.2.6.tbz
