From what I can tell, camcontrol devlist is the closest thing to a lsblk variant for FreeBSD. I'm not 100% sure that this is the best method, but its output is very close to what lsblk gives you, if you only care about /dev/<DEV-PATH> and device names: $ camcontrol devlist <VBOX HARDDISK 1.0> at scbus0 target 0 lun 0 (ada0,pass0) <VBOX ...

Give pciconf or kldstat a try.

Personally, I use wtfismyip.com which returns pure text and does not need parsing: $ wget -qO - http://wtfismyip.com/text 123.456.78.9

Try from the CLI wget checkip.dyndns.org:80 -O - -o /dev/null | cut -d" " -f6 | sed 's/<\/body><\/html>//' or wget 216.146.39.70:80 -O - -o /dev/null | cut -d" " -f6 | sed 's/<\/body><\/html>//' if you do not wish to call the DNSs. You can always load the following URL, www.whatismyipaddress.com in your browser; this is but ...

I would use incremental ZFS send/receive. It should be more efficient than rsync as ZFS knows what has been changed since the previous snapshot without needing to explore the whole file system. Assuming you want to fully backup a file system namen datapool/fs. You first create a pool to store your backup on the destination server and a recursive snapshot ...

This has been solved by following the steps in this link http://www.thegeekylinux.com/2014/11/how-to-dual-boot-linux-crunchbang-linux.html Yes, I had to use PC-BSD grub to dual boot Linux and PC-BSD

Use PC-BSD GRUB. It's the only one GRUB that can boot FreeBSD/BCBSD from zfs. Debian GRUB doesn't support the zfs currently used in BSD.

The -m option takes a directory name, not a filename. bmake -m /usr/local/share/mk Otherwise, your version of bmake doesn't match the version of the mk files in /usr/local/share/mk.

The installer now has support for setting up ZFS on top of geli. I highly recommend you use the installer. It does things a bit differently than it sounds like you're trying to (didn't follow the link), but it works well. The new installer setup creates two GPT partitions, one for /boot where only the kernel and a password protected copy of the encryption ...

Ony my Linux systems, man 1 man mentions the MANWIDTH environment variable, which, now that I look it up, is also specified in the FreeBSD man(1) manpage: MANWIDTH If set to a numeric value, used as the width manpages should be displayed. Otherwise, if set to a special value ``tty'', and output is to a terminal, the pages may ...

For me updating NetBSD packages is a command in /usr/pkgsrc: # cvs update -dP && csup /some-path-to-wip-supfile/netbsd-pkgsrc-wip && pkg_rolling-replace -u

Adding the --no-verify-peer option will fix the certification verification error. If you want to authentication, just add the user/pass to the url like https://user:password@host.domain/path

On NetBSD, you usually upgrade pkgsrc to the latest version (which is nothing more than tar -xvzf pkgsrc-version.tar.gz) and updates the installed software individually. More information on the NetBSD/pkgsrc website: http://wiki.netbsd.org/pkgsrc/how_to_use_pkgsrc/#index1h2 http://wiki.netbsd.org/pkgsrc/how_to_use_pkgsrc/#index7h1 Hope this helps!

I needed to get updates because I installed bash and didn't want to suffer from the Shellshock vulnerability, so I went with Holu's suggestion http://unix.stackexchange.com/a/103661/93476 and it got me patched up.

In both cases those are not primarily warnings that break the build. For the kernel compilation: error: 'struct run_vap' has no member named 'beacon_mbuf' the compiler tells you, that the code is trying to access something that isn't there. This may have many reasons, but generally it suggests that the code is broken. Maybe you are trying to compile a ...

https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/handbook/updating-upgrading-freebsdupdate.html, section 24.2.3.3: portmaster -af Forget about "quickly" though. This may take some time depending on your machine and the ports installed. :) After that, you'll have to run freebsd-update install one last time.

If you are using the default dhclient, you can try altering the config for the Ethernet interfaces to request or require that the DHCP server sends a value for the routers option. Try something like this in /etc/dhclient.conf: interface "re0" { request routers; } Of course, this will work only if the segment's DHCP servers are configured to respond to ...
