All,
I have a few questions I was hoping someone could help me with.
I'm running FreeBSD 11 using IOCage for jails. Thus far, I have a
couple questions here:
1) When I portsnap fetch extract in a jail, I get a message telling me
that /usr/ports is not writable. When I touch a file in /usr/ports I'm
told it's a read-only filesystem, but mount only shows the root
directory being mounted. Is this typical? if so, how should ports be
installed?
I read that you should not build ports in a jail, but a few of the
jails I am using have different port builds from the pkg defaults. I
need to build them individually. Is there a better way to do this?
2) I seen some information about setting a property on IOCage that
allows zfs datasets to be mounted into the jail. There is already a
dataset being used though; is there a way to mount multiples? To
provide some context, I want to run Samba from within a jail. I wish
to nullfs-mount the /storage/media into the jail to enable Samba to
access it.
3) I am running FreeBSD-11. Is there a good way to update short of
rebuilding everything? I don't mind doing that, but it's somewhat time
consuming. Also mergemaster has a bad habbit of breaking my
/etc/passwd files, etc.
Thanks,
