I am running on FreeBSD 8.2, I have a device that will run NanoBSD 7.4. To install packages for nanobsd, you put them in /usr/src/tools/tools/nanobsd/Pkg, and uncomment the line in your config.

I need to get JamVM installed on the NanoBSD, this depends on diablo-jre. When nanobsd.sh tries to install the diablo package, the log _.cust.cust_pkg is spammed with Do you accept the license [yes/no].

I need to unpack the diablo package and edit +INSTALL, then repack it. How can I do this?

Same question but on superuser: https://superuser.com/questions/290494/update-diablo-jre-freebsd7-i386-1-6-0-07-02-tbz-install-do-you-accept-when-ins

Unpack .tbz with tar xf to empty directory, edit +INSTALL and pack it again with tar cjf ../new_package.tbz *. FreeBSD's binary package is just bzipped tar archive, nothing special.

  • Hi, tried the command, but I get this error: tar xf diablo-jre-freebsd7.i386. diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja/man1/: Cannot extract through symlink diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja/man1/unpack200.1: Cannot extract through symlink diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja/man1/tnameserv.1: Cannot extract through symlink diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja diablo-jre1.6.0/man/ja/man1/servertool.1: (snip) tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

  • did you extracted it to empty directory? I've tried tar xf diablo-jre- on package created with pkg_create -b and it work just fine. Can you show full tar output?
