I've got mostly Ubuntu servers, but have a need for 2 FreeBSD boxes. On all of the Ubuntu systems I've gotten extremely used to having Byobu on top of GNU Screen. I've been trying to figure out how to get it installed on the FreeBSD boxes from the source tarball, but run into problems at every turn.
I've got everything listed in the README installed (screen, python-newt, and gsed). But I'm still not able to run it properly. It will multiplex the screen just fine, but the bottom line that displays system status and context information just says
Invalid Message (magic 0x00000000000) and byobu-config says that the snack module is not installed, which I can't seem to find.
Anyone have any ideas or pointers?
