Package hell fighting with Sarg, Squid & Bandwidthd please help!
Hi I really need pfsense to work with Sarg, Squid and Bandwidthd. I really don't care which versions.
I upgraded from pf 2xxx to 2.1 and I just can't get anything running. I really need this since we have very limited bandwidth (20 GB) a month with three teenagers if you get my point….
Seems like all three packages use conflicting versions of png & jpeg ect. I resolve the dependencies for one and break the other! Help!
I don't think reinstalling the old version of pf would work either since its still going to download the packages from the latest sources I believe?

and may not be deinstalled:
On 2.1 packages are "chrooted" with pbi build to avoid these lib conflit.
Why are you using pkg_add to install them instead of interface package manager? ???
I have been adding them via the GUI package manager until 2.1 where I started having problems. Then I started reading other posts where adding them via pkg_add was the solution.
I did read about 2.1 isolating lib files to avoid conflicts which sounds great. So when I look at available packages even though its not written for 2.1 will the OS still isolate the files?
So how would I go about cleaning this up and reinstalling from the PBI? thank you
The best cleanup is a firewall reinstall and backup restore as pkg_add install a lot of things.
The pfsense version you see on package list are minimal version. It should work from 2.0 to 2.1
yikes ok lesson learned! thank you
I'm pleased to report that reinstalling the OS and restoring the config has resolved the issue! thank you
