Development bootstrap fails with missing pear (6.2->6.3)



  • Hi,

    I recently needed to move my custom build to a new ALIX board.  However, the development install is based on FreeBSD 6.2, and the support files for this version is gone, so the build fails.

    I thus did:
    setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp4.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6-stable/Latest/

    to get it to use 6.3.  However, now pear seem to be needed, but is missing:

    Executing /home/pfsense/tools/builder_scripts/build_iso.sh…
    Warning: require_once(config.inc): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /etc/rc.banner on line 34
    Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'config.inc' (include_path='.:/usr/local/share/pear') in /etc/rc.banner on line 34

    I tried to install pear:
    cd /usr/ports/devel/pear
    make install clean distclean

    The the needed file fails to appear.

    Any idea how to get the development system to build?

    Thanks,
    Jim



  • Caution, binaries and libraries (which is what the packages contain) built on a later version may not work, or may work unpredictably, on earlier versions.

    There is a post containing details of the appropriate package location - somebody here took a mirror.  I don't have a link to it to hand, but I'd expect you'd find it in the Packages forum.
