Free BSD security patches may be downloaded and installed using the following commands. The following components of Free BSD seem to be installed: kernel/smp src/base src/bin src/contrib src/crypto src/etc src/games src/gnu src/include src/krb5 src/lib src/libexec src/release src/rescue src/sbin src/secure src/share src/sys src/tools src/ubin src/usbin world/base world/info world/lib32 world/manpages The following components of Free BSD do not seem to be installed: kernel/generic world/catpages world/dict world/doc world/games world/proflibs Does this look reasonable (y/n)?
This utility supports binary security and errata updates to Free BSD, without the need to manually compile and install the patch or a new kernel.
Binary updates are available for all architectures and releases currently supported by the security team.
Upgrades from earlier releases, however, will not have it.
If the "pkg" program is missing on the system for any reason, it can be quickly bootstrapped without having to build it from source or even having dports installed: After any installation or reinstallation of the pkg(8) package, you may want to open review the configuration files to customize it, e.g. The pkg(8) program has a configuration file at /usr/local/etc/(the default installation is typically fine and requires no alteration).
23993 packages processed pkg: sqlite error while executing DROP TABLE repo_update; in file pkgdb.c:2262: attempt to write a readonly database ''' Maybe it would be good for the update manager to first check if packages are really available, before it reports that they are. But this type of experience has become unique, and common, with my PC-BSD system.
