OpenNMS port for FreeBSD

10/6/14 – No longer maintained

The port is for the current stable version, v1.6.2. It is in its very early stages, there are still some issues which need to be ironed out:

* The port will install just fine except that it complains about some files listed in the pkg-plist which are not there, well they are there but the files named are dynamically generated everytime a build is attempted (jetty-webapps & webapps cache files) so this will need to be fixed.

* As there are issues with these filenames in the pkg-plist, make package fails.

* A problems with the jicmp dependency, it fails to detect that jicmp is installed & attempts to build & install it no-matter what & obviously fails if it is.

All previous issues with the port listed above have been resolved, the port now just needs to be tested before submission for inclusion in ports.

CoovaChilli 1.0.12 port for FreeBSD

As v1.0.12 is finally released I’ve updated the unfinished port for the SVN builds
The todo list is kinda the same but I’m on the case this time & its fairly trivial to sort out, I just need feedback on any issues building the port & getting it up & running.

Grab the port here
If you need a main.conf to start with grab it here

Thanks to David Bird for working over the issues with coova on FreeBSD this weekend, the random coredump issue has been resolved & chilli_query now works properly aswell as coova itself! 🙂
I’ve updated the port, use the link above to download & test.

Updated the port to make it build-able on FreeBSD 7.0, added rc script & sample configs, the port is nearly ready for submission, its now lacking documentation & a little cleaning up on scripts, use the link above to fetch a new copy of the port.

Tidied up the scripts by removing linux related references e.g iptables, the port has now been submitted for inclusion in the ports tree ports/130357
Use the link above to fetch a copy in the meantime.

Port Commited
Please note that the sample configs are now located in /usr/local/share/examples/cooovachilli
The chillispot port has also been updated to prevent installation of both packages.

Dell PowerEdge T105 & *BSD

Dell where running a special offer this week on the PowerEdge T105 servers.
For £173inc Vat & Shipping they make perfect test boxes, I placed the order on monday & they where here on thursday.
I’ve spent some of today trying ou the AMD64 flavours of FreeBSD 6.3 & 7.0-RC1, NetBSD 4.0 & 200802010002Z snapshot, OpenBSD 4.2 RELEASE & CURRENT.
One word of warning the onboard broadcom network card is a POS, you will need an additional network card installed in the system if you’re planning to have any means of connectivity to you box.
I used a cheapo intel pro/1000 GT PCI network card.

Here are some dmesgs:
FreeBSD 7.0-RC1 AMD64
The broadcom network card was enabled in the bios but wasn’t detected by the kernel

I was unable to NetBSD 4.0 & 200802010002Z as the setup program claimed there where any disks installed.

The broadcom network worked fine during the install process as far as I was able to obtain a IP address from a DHCP server, upon reboot when the system went multiuser & the network card was initialised the system would panic, using the intel card instead stopped the panic onboot, but still panicked on reboot, disabling the broadcom network card in the bios solved any panics. Screenshot
I was unable to test the 4.2-CURRENT GENERIC.MP kernel as the system failed to boot, complaining about em0: watchdog timeout -- resetting
wd0a: device timeout writing fsbn 1885728 of 1885728-1885759 (wd0 bn 1885791; cn 11 tn 98 sn 12), retrying Screenshot

I also booted the system off the FreeBSD-CURRENT snapshot using the bootonly iso, the broadcom network card was detected but panicked when attempting to obtain a IP address via DHCP.

CoovaChilli for FreeBSD

I’ve created a long overdue port of CoovaChilli for FreeBSD, this should be considered as a work in progress for a couple of reasons:
1) As the current stable release v1.0.11 doesn’t build on the BSD’s the port installs a SVN checkout of build 152 which resolves build issues with FreeBSD
2) this is a result of a couple of hours of faffing around due to me being a bit rusty, the port definitely installs & uninstalls cleanly
but doesn’t install things in the right place as far as where things should live in the BSD userland e.g the www files are installed in {PREFIX}/etc/chilli/www which is wrong + some others bits.
3) The port doesn’t include any of additional docs/configs which where included with the chillispot port, eg a PF config.
4) No testing has been done apart from the fact that it builds correctly

You can grab a copy of the port here
copy the file to /usr/ports/net-mgmt
& uncompress

Small change, the correct location of the localstate directory (/var) is passed onto configure, redownload the file if you grabbed a copy previously.

Chillispot 1.1.0 for FreeBSD

I’ve finally gotten around to bringing the FreeBSD port of Chillispot up to date with the current release (v1.1.0).
As v1.1.0 is considered unstable it will not overwrite v1.0 which is currently in the tree, it will instead live alongside it in net-mgmt/chillispot-dev.
I have not had a chance to test this port with any wireless clients yet but it should work in theory, the only difference between this port & the initial patch I made to make it buildable is that I’ve used an alternative method for dealing with clearenv() as pointed out by Joe Marcus Clarke

Brighton Chilli 0.002-ALPHA Released

I finally managed to roll out a new release of Brighton Chilli, the new release contains the following fixes & additions:
Added support for WPA & 802.11i to the kernel
Added support for Atheros chipset cards to the kernel
Fixed a typo in chilli.conf (chilli should redirect to the right file now)
Patch for chillispots hotspotlogin.cgi to enable it to work with lighttpd
Move the cgi-bin directory to /var mfs so that it’s on a writable FS allowing hotspotlogin.cgi to be edited
Added chillispot to rc.conf
Serial console redirection now works
Changed the loader logo to beastie

Brighton Chilli Is Born

I’ve made a Freesbie containing everything needed to get a chillispot based wifi hotspot up and running.

At the moment you need to tweak some of the config files by hand but I will hopefully manage to automate everything withing the next couple of releases

Check it out here

Chillispot PF Config & More

I have just submitted a PR to update my port for FreeBSD
The update contains a Install guide which covers install & config of Chillispot, Apache 1.3.x with mod_ssl, MySQL 4.1.x & freeRADIUS + A sample PF config file aswell as a IPFW config file & a RC startup script.
If you can’t wait till it’s merged into the tree you can grab a copy of the port from here
