Why is /usr/pbi Read-Only?

  • So, I am ecstatically about pfSense 2.1 because it includes my favorite VPN daemon, tinc, in the package manager.
    The configuration is fairly straight forward, quite similar to the linux version, but i cant get it to work.
    Then i decide to try some troubleshooting in shell:

    [2.1-RELEASE][admin@pfSense.localdomain]/root(22): tincd -D -d5
    Cannot open config file /usr/pbi/tinc-amd64/etc/tinc/tinc.conf: No such file or directory
    Failed to read `/usr/pbi/tinc-amd64/etc/tinc/tinc.conf': No such file or directory
    [2.1-RELEASE][admin@pfSense.localdomain]/root(23): find / -name tinc.conf
    [2.1-RELEASE][admin@pfSense.localdomain]/root(24): ln -s /usr/local/etc/tinc /usr/pbi/tinc-amd64/etc/
    ln: /usr/pbi/tinc-amd64/etc//tinc: Read-only file system
    [2.1-RELEASE][admin@pfSense.localdomain]/root(25): wha??

    Ok, so it turns out that /usr/pbi is read-only, and im sure its for a good reason.
    the command tincd -D -d5 allows me to see debug output.

    is there any way i can the configuration file "tinc.conf" into the location that it wants so i can do troubleshooting?
