Why FreeNAS? Does FreeNAS even support 3rd party packages? I would first go with a FreeBSD installation then you can just do "pkg install xorg". No idea about FreeNAS if it ships the pkg tool. And frankly I do not care, because ppl who want to run a X server should use FreeBSD and not FreeNAS, which is FreeBSD specialized for Network Attached Storage (not ...

Yes, cyrus does that. You need to login as cyrus user and then it should work, but if i remember right, you first need to create the user directory where the user has rights and only he can then create another (his) directories there.

FreeBSD does use the database files for looking up the passwords and users and so on. So the /etc/passwd and also the master.passwd is there only for compatibility and informational reasons. One should never rely on that. I do not know if there is a way to ask that database files directly. Maybe they should provide some kind of SQL interface to it so that ...

gpart is the best one. There you have the parameter on gpart add -a 4K for example. By -a gives alignment and 4K you should use as a parameter for alignment, because the most new disks are working with 4K sectors. Even on old disks it has a reason, just to getting used to 4K.

LOL, you have a >= 2 TB disk with MBR(MSDOS). WTF? Get it to GPT and run again. I know it is not a proper answer to your problem, but with that kind of setup, you will always run into problems. Just do not use MBR/MSDOS on big disks. ppl probably should not use MSDOS disk labels at all. there is GPT which is a good alternative, supported by the most ...

Do you have any securelevel set? Because a securelevel inhibits EVEN the root from writing onto disks!!! It does not look to me like a broken disk, because with a broken disk you would get a storm of I/O errors over several monitor pages at least. He there just says that he can not do it because he has no permission to do that. If you are root, it might be ...

Good point, I have not noticed it that this was still the case, but however. There are ways how to limit the damage it can do, maybe with this new capsicum they are working on. But for all X (Xorg) applications I would say, first Wayland has to come in and then we can talk about security on a computer that is running X for real. Such little problems, like ...

Yes, when you are doing it over wireless then do not even try to bridge it. Because that was how the question sounded like. Wlan has this strange problem that it can not be bridged in client wifi mode. Thats because it can not transmit a different MAC address. There is only one per client. There are dirty hacks, like MAC address translation (something like ...

Of course there is no problem with the good old shells. Only ppl are too lazy and using bash, even though for the most part they do not really need it. You can configure a ksh or some other to do nearly all the things a bash can. For more advanced uses, ppl should throw a look at zsh, I tried it, and it looks very promising. However, I would never install a ...

If I understand you right, you want to make one virtual HDD out for more HDD's of different size. Then it is a JBOD, not a RAID-0! So you can not use the stripe set settings, like you would with two disks of the same size. Say, gstripe. Instead you use a concatenated disk driver. Available under http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinum_volume_manager in Freebsd. ...

Like I said in a post one before ... booting into FreeBSD is not a problem with Grub2. You only specify your root partition (of the FreeBSD installation) and then you go with kfreebsd /boot/loader. When it disappears after an upgrade of a kernel for example on your linux installatin, that is not a problem either. Write it to the custom section under ...

First, I would not use MBR, because you have there 4 OS's and that will not go far. You need to have the /boot partition as primary and not extended. So you either throw out the Solaris installation, or the Linux one. Booting into FreeBSD (or PC-BSD... whatever, makes no difference) with GRUB2 is easy. You just define your "set root=..." and then you say ...

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 ...

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 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. The solution was first posted by zeissoctopus on FreeBSD forums: https://forums.freebsd.org/viewtopic.php?&t=41013 The/usr/ports/UPDATING stated an update for aspell port: 20120924: AFFECTS: ...

Please download memstick image from here (or you can use amd64 of course). Attach the pendrive and write the img file with dd: dd if=your_img_file.img of=/dev/device_name_of_pendrive bs=512 The device_name_of_pendrive is the device name of pendrive, NOT partition! (e.g. /dev/sdc and not /dev/sdc1 or similar)

After a bit of upgrading individual packages by hand, I stumbled across a conflict with jpeg-8_5, and jpeg-turbo-1.3.0_2, running sudo pkg install -f jpeg-turbo Spat out a load of warnings. 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 ...

I figured it out myself! I discovered mhddfs and it seems to do exactly what I want. I'm about to test with a VirtualBox, but I believe I will be using SnapRAID with mhddfs (probably all running on Lubuntu) and it solves my problem.

There is a high risk of data loss but it should work if you have enough free space to work around segments of data first. First format a empty drive, add it to a new LVM array, and then move over the data from disk two to the new lvm aray of one disk. Format and add the second disk, then move data from disk 3 to the LVM array (that now is disks 1 and 2). ...

It seems you are confusing setenv with env. The setenv builtin in csh and sh is only used to define the value of environment variables, it does not take a command to be executed like env does. Typical usage for setenv is: setenv [VAR [word]] while typical usage for env is: env [VAR=word ...] [command [argument ...]] for instance: env DEBUG="*" node ...

Do NOT set up a writable FTP server. The amount of security in FTP can be described as "none"; depending on when the probe hits you you may start hosting malware within minutes, and isolating the uploads directory is entirely wrong approach to this problem. Although it's possible to tunnel over TLS, it's even better to switch to a different technology like ...

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.
