Yes, you are safe (at least against Shellshock). The "shellshock" bug is particular to bash and doesn't affect the Bourne (traditional sh), or Almquist (FreeBSD sh, ash, Debian's dash (and sh in newer releases)) or any other non-bash shell.

No, there is no default certificate store. There is a README file under /usr/src/crypto/openssl/certs, that states that The OpenSSL project does not (any longer) include root CA certificates. Please check out the FAQ: * How can I set up a bundle of commercial root CA certificates? The FAQ in question can be found here, and basically says that ...

I was having the same issue on FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE, to fix it you need to install textproc/en-aspell or textproc/en-hunspell depending on the program using it.

Your ports tree is out of date. cmake is currently at version 3.0.2, and kdevelop-kde4 is at 4.6. In addition, FreeBSD now keeps distfiles at http://distcache.freebsd.org/ports-distfiles. If you have set MASTER_SITE_BACKUP in /etc/make.conf, remove it or change it to http://distcache.FreeBSD.org/ports-distfiles/${DIST_SUBDIR}/ (the default value). You need ...

FreeBSD's boot loader isn't very good at multi-booting apparently. In which case, it's probably overwritten Ubuntu's boot loader (grub2) with it's own. A possible solution would be to boot into FreeBSD and configure it to install it's boot loader on the slice(partition) where FreeBSD is installed (as opposed to the MBR). Next boot into the Ubuntu CD/DVD ...

I then ran: sudo pkg upgrade And some 2 months worth of upgrades are currently installing "happily". In summary, manually upgrading individual packages turned up a ...
