hmmm..........

 

I'm dong a portupgrade -arR now because when I tried to do a make install clean in gnome2 I was getting errors and had to pkg_deinstall and then pkg_reinstall.

 

Nice distro, just too bad there are too many O.E.'s on my part. :D

Welp I throw in the towel. You can only re-install so many times and do a portupgrade so many times. Its probably mostly O.E. (operator error) but I've done everything suggested that I know of and things still will not work right. Kind of sick of having my gaming computer unavailable to me. :D

 

On the last portupgrade firefox fails to start. XChat is at like 1.8 or something like that. Gnome is still 2.10. At the end of the portupgrade it like only upgraded 22 packages. Can't remember how many it didn't or ignored all together.

 

Cybr I'd still like to thank you for the help and suggestions though.

Thats cool, I used bsd off/on over the years and frustration was certainly part of it :)

 

I'm doing a lot of work on solaris10 and rh right now so i really should stop booting into bsd to play :)

Ok, so not being the type of person who likes to give up I found this.....

 

The ports collection (FreeBSD's package management system) is

installed into /usr/ports by ServePath. The first thing to do is

to make sure that the latest patch sets have been installed.

 

# cd /usr/ports

# cd sysutils/portmanager && make all install && cd /usr/ports

# cd sysutils/portsnap && make all install && cd

/usr/local/etc

# mv portsnap.conf.sample portsnap.conf && cd /usr/local/sbin

# ./portsnap fetch && ./portsnap extract

 

The above commands will install two programs, portmanager, and

portsnap. These programs update the installed applications and

uninstalled sources, respectively. These two programs work

together in keeping FreeBSD up to date.

 

In order to apply the updated patch sets, execute the below:

 

# /usr/local/sbin/portsnap fetch

# /usr/local/sbin/portsnap update

 

In order to upgrade the installed applications, execute:

 

# /usr/local/sbin/portmanager -u

 

It is updating now and I'll see what I have after its done. :D

Welp let see....

 

After doing the update firefox still will not start because it is missing some lib*. Not sure what one. (I thought BSD had NO dependency problems when installing a program?)

 

Gnome fails during "make install clean"

 

XChat is at like 1.8 something. (I thought that portmanager -u or even portsnap -arR upgrades your system? )

 

I am at a complete lost. Ix how are you doing with this??? lol

I have been out of town on a mission trip to New Orleans. But, in reading the thread, I am going to try again. I have not been able to get FreeBSD to use either Firefox or Nvidia drivers. I did find that building the system was a bit nightmareish because I could do things without the necessary depends! I do not have the hang of it as yet.

 

I am trying your suggections. I already went around "uninstalling-reinstalling" to get the libs thing straight. There are at least 4 programs that apparently do not agree with the install disk and the current tree.

It freezes while compiling nvidia-settings. It also froze while compiling firefox. I am beginning to not have fun!!!

Clarify please. Do you mean incompatible with BSD? I have already compiled with linux without issues.

In the boot menu, have you tried to boot without apic?

 

As far as memory, not sure how that would fit in.

Well since I like self punishment I reinstalled again. So far I have done "portsnap fetch, extract" and thats it. Been kind of afraid to do the update thingy. I also removed the # in the /etc/portsnap.conf file.

 

As of right now I get a error from the ports when trying to install either the nvidia driver or mplayer.

 

gamer# pkg_add -r mplayer

Error: FTP Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i...st/mplayer.tbz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)

pkg_add: unable to fetch 'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.0-release/Latest/mplayer.tbz' by URL

 

 

gamer# pkg_add -r nvidia-driver

Error: FTP Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i...dia-driver.tbz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)

pkg_add: unable to fetch 'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.0-release/Latest/nvidia-driver.tbz' by URL

 

That is where I am at now.

well ran the gnome 2.12 install script and it failed. From what I gathered it failed because not all the packages updated with portupgrade. Here is a printout from the failure starting with the errors.
