Not really.    And why would you want to?
Just leave it.   You will gain nothing by the change.

Just edit the /etc/group file and put that user in that group.
That is the normal way of doing it.
I would not suggest making wheel be the primary group for any
other than root accounts.

Yes.

# ee /etc/group

...and add your username to the list of users after the wheel group. For
instance, by default, the entry will appear as such:

wheel:*:0:root

...and if my username is steve, you will append the line like this:

wheel:*:0:root,steve

...then hit ESC, then ENTER twice.

I have a server that has five drives in it. Two drives ad4 and ad6 are
arranged with gmirror as the operating system (7.1 Stable). The FreeBSD
boot manager is installed for this mirror and I would like to remove it
and use the standard FreeBSD MBR ...without messing anything up. 

Can I perform the fdisk -B /dev/ad4 followed by fdisk -B /dev/ad6 from
a livefs disk? Maybe fdisk -B /dev/mirror/gm0?

I have backups but everything is running very nice right now. I don't
reboot very often but I _would_ like to get rid of the boot manager

Thank you

The problem has nothing to do with ports. To restore your root/user logins:
. boot into single user mode;
. set a new root password;
. set a new user password;
. boot into multiuser mode;
. login and have fun.

I've had the same thing happen to me not 2 weeks ago after upgrading a
server from 7.0-RC2 to 7.1-RELEASE with freebsd-update. For me the problem
had nothing to do with ports but with the update itself, because it
replaced my pwd.db and spwd.db with the default ones (root with no
password, no user accounts) and since ssh doesn't accept root logins I
ended up going to the datacenter and copying the backups of those db's
back. Then everything was fine again. Very strange they got replaced
though..
Sounds like you've had something similar happen to you. Hopefully your
machine isn't too far away.

I believe you will find that the system call is "fstatfs".

A subsequent message of your verified that the hierarchy being read was
on an NFS-mounted file system.  Perchance, was that NFS mount managwed
by amd(8)?

If so, while I do not have a "fix" for you, I am relieved to see someone
else finally report these symptoms.  Please see
<http://docs.FreeBSD.org/cgi/mid.cgi?20081203001538.GC96383>; for an
archived copy of my initial message in a thread reporting this.

There is additional detail (including kernel trace information &
how-to-repeat instructions) in subsequent messages in the thread.  Also
mentioned is a circumvention -- basically, crippling amd(8) so it no
longer attempts to unmount() a file system.

However, I was unable to re-create the symptoms at home -- only at work.
A colleague at work was able to re-create the symptoms, and was
intending to experiment a bit more, but he's been busy with other things
recently.

Please contact me (off-list, if you prefer), and we can discuss
additional details.

Peace,
david

ZFS was a disaster.

That is what we were using until today, when the power went off  and the 
zfs pool ended up corrupted and irrecoverable.

Three other times we had power failures, the zpool ended with some errors.

But, all the times, the UFS partitions remained intact.

I won't use ZFS for a long time.

Can someone tell me what I should attend for when I am disconnected in 
the middle of a portupgrade and the terminal session is aborted?
The portupgrade was halted by a [yes/no] prompt, on which I had to 
react. Unfortunately being not present and I having not set my Putty 
keepalive session timeperiod I was disconnected due to no activity on 
this system prompt $-|.
What I did after having logged on again was deleting that specific ruby 
process and some tty processes. Perhaps I should delete some other temp 
files as well?

Thanks,

I have an Aten CS64A PS/2 4 port KVM <http://preview.tinyurl.com/yte4et>; 
and it works fine with my 3 button mouse, supporting all 3 buttons and 
the scroll wheel. I've had FreeBSD, linux, Win98, XP and Vista boxes 
running through it at various times over the last 2 years and it's 
always worked just fine.

My only minor niggle was that if I booted my FreeBSD box while the 
monitor was connected to one of the other boxes then KDE started up in 
1024x768 mode instead if the monitor's default 1280x1024 mode. But that 
was easily sorted with a minor tweak to xorg.conf.

For future runs, you might consider using something like screen
(/usr/ports/sysutils/screen) so you can resume the session later,
should you get disconnected.

Before I learned to run portupgrade in a screen session, I never had a 
problem just running portupgrade again. If I recall correctly the index 
needed to be rebuilt at times, but portupgrade gave a helpful message 
telling me that.

After I completed my Freebsd 7.1 stable, and updated all the ports, I got
prompted with another logonscreen.
Whatever I try, I can't login with my useraccount and even not logon as
root.
This happened severall times now, the only way was to reinstall everything,
and I was hoping to resolve this by completly finish upgrading the ports.
And .. again the same problem.
I'm really hoping to get some answers that will solve this problem, maybe
someone had to deal with this  issue before ??
*************

Follow up
===>
My problem has something to do with gnome2 I guess.
You see, I can logon, except in graphical user mode.
This happend after complete update (gnome2 included)
I get a different logon prompt, and then I already know I won't be able to
logon.
Only this time I was hoping an upgrade of all the ports would help me .. and
it didn't.
I really hope I will find or get an answer to this problem.

Regards,
Roy.

Hiya

I am using mbmon in  telnet mode to monitor some print servers 
remotely.

REvcently I moved the monitoring form one server to another, but now 
the telnet probe only works from the command line.  Any probe 
originating from a cron job gets no data in the reply (normally via 
mrtg, but I tried a direct telnet call as a cron job and it also got 
no data as a reply).

Yes, the connection is made.  mbmon is running on the targets.

This is affecting 3 target print servers.

I tried running the probe on the original server and it worked as 
usual.

where to look?

indeed. and fsck time can be fast if you correctly set up block size and 
amount of inodes. i mean not too much inodes and large blocks (32-64K) if 
you store mostly big files.

i would recommend never.

Hello,

I have a certain disk where da0s1a and da0s1d are inverted. By some
reason someone labelled root as 'd' and home as 'a'.

Can I just

bsdlabel -n da0s1 > savedabel.txt

Edit savedlabel.txt, switch and restore? (bsdlabel -R da0s1 savedlabel)

Why not simply use bsdlabel -e da0s1?

Kind regards,

Hi,

I'm trying to start X on FreeBSD-7.1-RELEASE (i386) with up-to-date ports
tree with this graphics card:

nvidia0: <GeForce 9800 GT> on vgapci0
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_busmaster
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_io
nvidia0: [GIANT-LOCKED]
nvidia0: [ITHREAD]

When I try to start X, with or without xorg.conf generated either by Xorg or
by nvidia-xconfig, with or without kernel nvidia module loaded, I get a lot
of errors like this:

(EE) end of block range 0xfb < begin 0xfffffffc

Then, my hard drive detaches, like this (not copy-pasted text):

ad7: FAILURE - device detached

g_vfs_done(): ad7s1f [WRITE(offset=... length=...)]error = 6
