GUI breaks up, does not save anything.



  • Hi,
    Hope this is a right place to ask the problem. I have installed pfsense 2.0 on Watchgurd firebox x700 on Kingston CF 4gb. It was running without any problem until now. From last couple of days I am having the following problems:

    1. Any changes on the GUI does not save or make changes into the systems, it's breakdown and you can see the php code or System Error logs on the web page.(Please see the attached image).
    2. Loosing the internet connections very often. Please see the logs below:

    Jul  3 15:17:37 fw kernel: g_vfs_done():ufs/pfsense0[WRITE(offset=1579282432, length=4096)]error = 5

    Any help will be greatly appreciate.

  • As it was working before, maybe you got something corrupted on your system.

    Did you tried to backup and try to reapply the firmware?

    When you said 'reapply the firmware' did you mean to reinstall the pfsense into the CF card and upload the config again?

    Just wondering do you think it is the CF card which can cause the problems?

    I will reinstall it again and see if it does make any difference.

    Ok I just reinstall everything it went ok. Then uploaded the file the following errors:

    Welcome to pfSense 2.0.1-RELEASE  …

    Creating symlinks......done.

    Fatal error: Cannot create references to/from string offsets nor overloaded objects in /etc/inc/xmlparse.inc on line 69
    Launching the init system... done.

    [: -gt: unexpected operator
    rm: /tmp/config.cache: No such file or directory

    Any idea?

    Get a new CF. That one has died.

    Ok I reflashed the CF card again. This time instead of upload the old config.xml I've created it from scratch. Everything is working fine except Openvpn. Not sure but I think the problem is on 'OpenVPN Client Export Utility', which is breaking the systems.

    No, you're just lucky that helped at all.

    Your CF is about to give out entirely, buy a new one, don't keep reflashing one that's already worn out. It is going to fail on you very, very soon.

    Thanks for your advice - I bought a new one and reinstall everything on it - working fine - but have not tried the OpenVPN yet.
