RELENG_2_1 - Missing "pfsense-build.conf" when following the DevWiki steps



  • I've just set up a new BSD8.3 install and followed the steps in the DevWiki

    After running menu.sh, when I try to set the Version, choosing "RELENG_2_1", it fails with the message:

    cat: pfsense-build.conf: No such file or directory

    Press enter to continue…

    Can someone post the missing file?  (or put it back in the git repo?)



  • Problem solved - after some reading through source in the git, a workaround was:

    /home/pfsense/tools/builder_scripts
    touch pfsense-build.conf

    With an empty file in place, the builder scripts will populate it with default values.

    Seems to be a bug in the builder_scripts/set_version.sh file.  Line 52 should check whether the file exists first.
