Updating bsd powered by vbulletin
I've already thrown portmanager out the window because it takes literally days to compile and upgrade one package(Opera in this case) :mad:. Fetching metadata signature for 7.1-PRERELEASE from update1. The closest thing I found on google was some key errors but no solutions and the folks in #freebsd weren't too helpful either (Probably because I entered in on one of their linsux rants :roll:).The problem I'm getting with freebsd-update is that I'll try freebsd-update fetch and it returns "Looking up update. If any body has a solution I would be greatly appreciative :)So I've come back to Free BSD again after a while and I have to say it's a great system but some of the problems I've been getting make me wonder whether I should just go back to Net BSD despite it's own various shortcomings (flash, Xfree86 by default, mp3 playback).
Keeping your server operating system up to date ensures better security and compatibility, and Free BSD includes the Warning: Before you start this process, perform a full backup of your server. Fetching metadata signature for 10.2-RELEASE from update6... hi i was updating my macbook when i closed the moniter and opened it back up then it shut down. i've tried the whole press option and turn it on also command option R P or something. this part gets cut off from the sign saying you need to restart your computer. If that makes no difference to problem; Start computer by pressing power button; and hold down Command Option P and R buttons at same time and hold until you have heard the start chimes 3 times, then release all buttons and let it boot up. If I hadn't tried to remove it this would not have happened! (reading other things i found out taht i shouldn't have done that) i cant log in or do anything. panic(cpu 0 caller 0x001A8CEC): Kernel trap at 0x00000000, type 14=page fault, registers: CR0: 0x8001003b, CR2: 0x00000000, CR3: 0x01af9000, CR4: 0x00000660 EAX: 0x00000001, EBX: 0x001363b6, ECX: 0x00000000, EDX: 0x00000598 CR2: 0x00000000, EBP: 0x1bfabf38, ESI: 0x035ef800, EDI: 0x00000001 EFL: 0x00010002, EIP: 0x00000000, CS: 0x00000008, DS: 0x00000010 Error code: 0x00000010 Debugger called: Backtrace (CPU 0), Frame : Return Address (4 potential args on stack) 0x1bfabd28 : 0x12b0fa (0x459234 0x1bfabd5c 0x1333243 0x0) 0x1bfabd78 : 0x1a8cec (0x4627a0 0x0 0xe 0x461f50) 0x1bfabe58 : 0x19eed5 (0x1bfabe70 0x216 0x1bfabf38 0x0) 0x1bfabe68 : 0x0 (0xe 0x48 0x1bed0010 0x10) 0x1bfabf38 : 0x1be86d73 (0x3421c00 0x0 0x34816b0 0x3481a78) 0x1bfabf58 : 0x1be8b30b (0x34816b0 0xefb7c48 0x0 0x6ece) 0x1bfabfc8 : 0x19eccc (0x0 0x0 0x1a20b5 0x3481a78) Backtrace terminated-invalid frame pointer 0 Kernel loadable modules in backtrace (with de..... Here is that path i would follow; First Step; Start computer by pressing power button then holding down the Shift key (L or R) it will take a bit longer to boot up but will not load any extra apps.If that does not identify any issues then shutdown and restart holding down the C and it should boot up off of the DVD If you are no further ahead then it is time to take it to an apple repairer. I would start up holding command and 's' to boot in single user mode and then run FSCK. When the text has loaded type the following: reset-nvram then press return set-defaults then press return reset-all then press return It will boot back to your OS then. Kernel Panics (KPs, for short) are simply a severe OS crash. I did have a little trouble with Firefox (would not let me bookmark) and tried to trash "Limewire" that had been previously installed and it would not let me trash it. I can't run updates or any utilities because I cannot boot... it gave me a long log.said something about "bad journal magic" and "OS version not yet set" I went to try to fsck... It was step 9 in particular that I wanted you to run. (also he mentioned Limewire as being a potential problem) I have also seen this on some searches...This is how Apple advised me to cure kernel panic many moons ago. This is highly unusual for UNIX-based operating systems, where there is quite a bit of abstraction between the underlying OS and the software that runs on top of it. Cannot boot I tried holding shift while powering up... If I hold "option" I get a screen with a "refresh" button, what looks like a drive with an "X" for leopard on it and a left arrow... I am a newby Mac owner and I am afraid I will make the issue worse... I really wanted to get rid of it as It was starting at power up and I think it was causing Firefox to act up. but it would not let me key anything in.(I actually took a picture of the screen so I would have record of it) I restarted and now I can't get it back up... I did see where it said to remove third party applications with uninstaller an app remover, so that may have been where I went wrong trying to remove Lime wire. Unless the "bad journal magic" or "OS not yet set" narrows it down for anyone to tell me what to do next I will continue with what on the list I can do with key commands (reset Pram, etc... Since that doesn't work, I would recommend following this tutorial: Mac OS X - Using Disk Utility to Repair a Disk ..run Disk Utility from the System Disc. I was going to order it, but it says that firmware must be updated (I do not know if it has been or not as I just got the computer) and I guess I must get the latest version for Leopard... I just need to learn a little more about what I am doing...Due to its permissive licensing terms, much of Free BSD's code base has become an integral part of other operating systems such as Juniper JUNOS and Apple's OS X." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free BSD We'll be building Free BSD from scratch, which starts you off with the base system and a terminal.
No flashy graphics, no desktop, no file manager, no web browser, no image manipulator, etc.
If that does not sort issue; then find DVD that came with computer and press the power button and immediately insert the DVD and once it goes in Hold the D key down. I know I am running on and on, but this must all be related. I also do not have restore disc, so I cannot use that option either.
When it boots up hit return and then select which Hardware test you want to run, probably a good idea to do the extended test even though it may take an hour to an hour and a half to run through. Let's back up a bit and talk about what causes a kernel panic in the first place. I believe the ram is original because there is a factory sticker under the keyboard stating specs and the ram it says it has is what I was told it had. I decided to restart to see if maybe Limewire would be gone. I was going to try to purchase a disc, but since I have an ibook and Leopard was installed I would be worried I would get the wrong disc set. *I can "option" and I see my os although if I click the arrow I end up back at the "kernel panic four languages" *I can get to the OF screen and "mac-boot" but again I end up at kernel panic... I am not sure how I ended up with the blinking folder a couple of times... goes right to kernel panic I was looking at another post where Kevriano suggested "Diskwarrior" and it worked...
You start with the base system, a terminal, and build *rd party apps as you see fit.
If you're not familiar with the CLI, Command Line Interface, it's where you will be doing a good part of your work from, and all of it till you build a Window Manager, like Fluxbox, or Desktop Environment, like Gnome, as a GUI, or Graphic User Interface, which is what you're familiar with as a Windows or Linux user.
So I've come back to Free BSD again after a while and I have to say it's a great system but some of the problems I've been getting make me wonder whether I should just go back to Net BSD despite it's own various shortcomings (flash, Xfree86 by default, mp3 playback).
