Just a cautionary tale for people who actually run important stuff of
DragonFly BSD servers like me.
pkg update appears still to be broken. Lua issue
dfly# uname -a
DragonFly dfly.int.bagdala2.net 5.8-RELEASE DragonFly v5.8.3-RELEASE
#29: Sun Sep 27 17:37:43 EDT 2020
root at dfly.int.bagdala2.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/X86_64_GENERIC x86_64
dfly# openssl version
dfly# pkg info openssl
pkg: No package(s) matching openssl
dfly# pkg which /usr/bin/openssl
/usr/bin/openssl was not found in the database
dfly# pkg info libressl
dfly# pkg info pkg
So yes I was able to upgrade pkg to 1.16.1 however due to the Lua error
I stayed without working pkg tool. The fix was "easy"
root at ........# cp /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/df-latest.conf.sample
however now I am stuck with broken server
That garbage you guys see is due to the PHP 7.2 to PHP 7.4 upgrade. I
think PHP 7.4 issue is fixed by PmWiki upstream but the version of
PmWiki used by dports doesn't work with PHP 7.4. I was expected that the
potential issues would be taken care of by FreeBSD PmWiki maintainer but
Is there way to downgrade PHP to 7.3 until the issue is fixed or should
I go for a manual upgrade of PmWiki?
I would appreciate any ideas at this point.
