comment Package manager in FreeBSD 10
Well, I double checked and pkg is the default so I'm wondering if you messed it up by trying to install it from source. Check the man page to see how to get it to install things from the DVD.

Yes. Is portmaster installed? You can do 'portmaster -L|grep pkg' to see if pkg is installed.

I may be wrong but isn't "pkg" standard install on FreeBSD10? I don't use packages, only ports but you shouldn't be installing the package manager that way. Instead you should use ports or the current package manager.

comment Where do uncaught local emails go?
You may have answered my question. I get a lot of "User unknown" in sendmail maillog from outside the system but now getting a response from Google like, "stat=Deferred: 421-4.7.0 [107.XXX.XX.XXX 15] Our system has detected a n unusual rate of", which is cut off. Is Google sending that to me or the original mailer? Am I getting myself into trouble with this (the risk of being blocked)?

comment Is it possible to keep a FreeBSD system up to date (base system + packages) using only binaries?
I believe the wording should be, "The problem with packages..." since ports contains the latest distribution and are not binary packages.

That is correct.

Don't get ports and packages confused. You're trying to install a package but said you're still getting used to ports. I only use ports so I can't help you with the new pkg system.

comment Resources to learn linux architecture in detail?
@strugee I couldn't elaborate so did the next best thing (two years ago). Your preference would be for me to ignore the OP. I'd downvote you for that but I can't.

You are right. I had assumed he was doing this for technical reasons, like web site testing, and not personal.

All that does is make the server think the browser is IE but, unless the server does something different with that info, Chrome will still behave like Chrome. He wants to use or emulate IE which can't be done without Windows.

comment What exactly do we mean when we say we are using Linux?
@slm I only responded to your comment that "Not all Unixes are open source" and the truth is no Unixes are open source. UNIX is a trade name, a validation and certification. It also means there is POSIX compliance to a degree Linux and other systems can't validate (but OSX can). I wasn't arguing anything except UNIX is UNIX and Linux is not UNIX which your post seemed to say, iirc. (I was not aware of previous thread, or any other.

@Gilles How is anything I said not true? Why did you feel the need to comment about it?
