Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed

Hi,

Is there any way to avoid the system going to single user mode when a 
secondary storage device cannot be mounted?.

I mean, if all system filesystems are OK, how can set up a device with a 
custom mount point so that when it's tried to mount at boot time and 
fails doesn't cause the system to be in single user mode?

I know that if in fstab I set the last parameter to "0" checking will 
not be made at boot time, but instead what I want is the check to be 
run, correct any automatically correctable error, and continue booting 
anyway, despite the result of the check.Later a custom script will check 
the filesystem and send a mail, for example.

Thanks for your help.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

I was wondering if anyone can tell me why Perl was not updated to the
latest stable release; i.e. 5.10.0 rather than 5.8.9 recently? It
appears that some ports are having problems with this odd version
update; i.e., "/news/inn" and possibly "/mail/mailscanner" as examples.

With the latest version of Perl having been released over a year ago,
it doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense to waste the time to port
an older version.

Hello Patrick, thanks again. Yes, label is switched. Yes there really
are stuff on the partitions. No, I dont boot from da0s1d. It is a disk
for migration. But the one who partitioned was fooled by Sysinstall
which creates the first label on extra disks as 'd' and the last from
the allowed 7 as 'a'. Therefore this server is still booting on the
original disk (ad6s1a) and everything else is mounted in the new one
(da0s1), everything but root.

	This was discussed within the last 2-3 weeks, either here or on
ports@.  Check the archives.

There is a script in the freebsd cvs repository to mirror the portsnap
servers, but from the README with it.

"this is not an invitation to start running a portsnap mirror as well. 
There
is nothing to stop you from mirroring from portsnap[12].freebsd.org,
but since mirroring consumes ~5GB/month of bandwidth while updating a
single machine consumes ~5MB/month of bandwidth, adding unnecessary
mirrors is likely to increase rather than decrease the load on the
official mirrors.  If in doubt, talk to me (cperciva@FreeBSD.org) first."



So if you think its worth it (you have 1000 or so clients to upgrade,)
go look in the cvs repository under projects.

I am using a Trendnet TK-207 USB switch and it works very well with my system.  
It switches between FreeBSD and Vista, and I use a zBoard keyboard with my 
mouse plugged in through the keyboard.  I don't have any problems with this 
KVM, it works greaat.

Well I spent a little more time having a look in the bios

Here are the results from various settings and a potential solution.

In FreeBSD
SATA Ports 0-3 The disks show  
SATA Ports 4&5 No disks show

SATA Controller in AHCI Mode

I have read there have been problems with the realtek 8169/8111c NIC
card on some systems with under FreeBSD, but I cant seem to find a
solution to this.

I'm not sure about the NIC, but I don't think the native ide or sata
control matters in terms of zfs (I could be wrong, and please correct me
if so experts). The sata controller should recognize the disks with or
without raid, which freebsd should recognize then install on. I use sata
in this mode on my systems, and freebsd works fine. Any software raid
wouldn't care then as long as freebsd itself recognizes the drives.

It's certainly supposed to, the man page says it does, fetch and
phttpget are both supposed to support proxies, and there's support in
the script for seeding the random selection of servers from the proxy
name.

As a newcomer to freebsd and a long time Perl user, this was one of the 
first things I noticed.  5.8.8 as distributed on freebsd 7.1 is 
extremely old.

Hello all,

I am currently running FreeBSD 7.1-Release and have run into a problem
that I nor google can find a solution too. I get the following errors upon
boot:

in openpam_load_module(): no /usr/local/lib/pam_ldap.so
pam_start:system error

I have reinstalled the ldap client and checked all config files. I have
also compared it to my other systems that are authenticating against the
ldap server and they are ok. I do not believe this is an ldap issue though
because I am not even able to login as root at the console. I have
verified that the pam_ldap.so file is in place and all permissions and
file sizes are correct.

Can anyone help?

Hi!

Wow! Good question!

Sorry, I had not seen the difference between 7 and 8 in uname and sysctl output. Sorry.

What your /usr/obj/usr/src/include/vers.h file say in:

SCCSSTR
VERSTR
RELSTR
char ostype
char osrelease
int osreldate
kern_ident

Thanks.

Thank you. I have checked out the shell script for mirroring. I read the
notes in the script. My company may have a few user of portsnap. But they
usually complain about the portsnap mirror on the internet is so slow. My
company doesn't have a proxy, it seems to be using NAT. So if I change the
interval of running the mirror script to a few hours, it should not consume
lots of existing mirrors bandwidth?

The manpage suggests you could,
"If you wish to use portsnap to keep a large number of machines up to
date, you may wish to set up a caching HTTP proxy.  Since portsnap
         uses fetch(1) to download updates, setting the HTTP_PROXY
environment
         variable will direct it to fetch updates from the given proxy. 
This
         is much more efficient than mirroring the files on the portsnap
         server, since the vast majority of files are not needed by any par-
         ticular client."

I havent tried this though.

What sysinstall does is assume that the 'a' partition will be
used for a root mount and the 'b' partition will be used for swap.
Sinc 'c' is reserved, it starts with 'd'.   Then, if you later 
add an 'a' it will end up being later (higher offset) than the 'd'.

I suppose it might confuse a person, but otherwise it is no problem
and probably would be best to just leave it that way.   You really
only need to use the mount point anyway most of the time.  So, if
the mount point addresses the partition you want to with that name,
then you should have no problem.

You could switch it around using bsdlabel, but I don't think the 
risk would be worth the negligible gain.   But, do as you wish.

Installed FreeBSD7.0-amd on a Supermicro system that has an
IPMI module (=Remote server management through webbrowser (Java appl.))

After installing Xorg and kde3, when connecting through the IPMI,
the KDM login manager shows its login window. Keyboard input works, but 
mouse input does not (the mouse pointer moves, but clicking on e.g.
the 'Menu' button in KDM login window does nothing)

(the IPMI console window shows in the bottom right corner a keyboard
and mouse icon, indicating that both should be available)

Also, after some time the screen gets black and reports 'No signal'

I can still do Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get a FreeBSD ASCII console login:
prompt.

Another Ctrl-ALt-F9 gets me back to KDE3 login window (keyboard but
no mouse input accepted)

what can be wrong and how to remedy?

Hi guys!
Just wondering if any of you know how to filter traffic (PPPOE,TCP,IP) by
the means of ipfw, on bridge with FreeBSD 7.x installed, in the case when
all traffic passing through the bridge is encapsulated in PPPOE.
Thanks.

The boot process assumes (by default) that the root file
system is on the "a" partition.  If it isn't, you won't
be able to boot from that disk, unless you enter the real
root partition at the boot0 prompt.

So it is really a good idea to switch the partitions in
the label before putting that disk into production.

Best regards
   Oliver

Hello,

Yes, you can do this change anytime you want, since (1) da0s1* are 
unmounted and (2) disk is clean. Therefore I suggest you are in single 
user mode. If you feel unsure, backup the current label scheme with

disklabel da0s1 -n > da0s1.disklabel.bk

You can restore anytime with the Rescue Disk.

Go ahead, no problem.

Sometimes you will really have problem booting from a disk if root is 
not on label 'a'. I believe it can be workarounded, but your will is 
safe, go ahead and switch the labels.

You can always remember the person who did this from sysinstall that 
sysinstall will label as 'a' if the mount point is root (/).

Therefore if someone wants to use sysinstall for labelling in 
production, and wont mount on / since / has the current root, one can 
always fool sysinstall, (C)reating the partition, using / as mpoint and 
mater redefining the (M)ount point to somewhere else, say, to /mnt.

I always relabel this way, never had a problem. TinyBSD sometimes 
relabels this way too, for some PC Engines Wrap boards. Go ahead.

Hello,

I've to debug the HTTP traffic between Firefox and some kind of file
management server to nail down a problem in the communication between
them, perhaps based on the content of the cookies or other HTTP data;

ofc, I could watch the connection with tcpdump, but maybe there is some better
HTTP-proxy-like tool in the /usr/ports which prints the HTTP in better human
readable form... any ideas? thx

Try FireBug, a FireFox plugin documented in _Web Security Testing
Cookbook_ a book which I highly recommend. It converted me from
Konqueror to FireFox in about 30 seconds when I found out about
NoScript, another Firefox extension.

Take a look at HttpFox, which  monitors and analyzes all incoming and
outgoing HTTP traffic between the browser and the web servers.

Information available per request includes:
- Request and response headers
- Sent and received cookies
- Querystring parameters
- POST parameters
- Response body

Its in ports (www/xpi-httpfox) or you can grab it from
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6647
