2.0 and FreeBSD

posted by Krow on 07:04 AM August 14th, 2001   Printer-friendly   Email story writes "Everything installed beautifully on FeeBSD. But there is one small problem! I can't delete story's!
so looked around here and discovered, that the cause for this is /usr/local/etc/rc.d/
(must be copied manually to /usr/local/etc/rc.d/)
It refuses to run!

So I fixed the FreBSD line (Install notes for Slash 2.0.0 on FreeBSD 4.3). No luck!
So I get this message :
Starting slashd slash: This account is currently not available.
ok PID =

so now I look into /usr/local/slash/slash.sites and replaced slash:nobody:blaa.blaa.yy with slash:slash:blaa.blaa.yy .
Now I get this message:

Starting slashd slash: ok PID =

Jep! No pid and slashd actually not started.
Apache is running as nobody:nobody"

  • Whoa! No no........your doing TOO MUCH WORK there. It doesn't need all that to get it running.

    First, the program. I swear, I have to modify it every CVS to run it. Cliff has posted that the system he's using it works, but it doesn't work for me. Basically, it needs to be the SAME as the Linux one.

    Second, when your installing the Perl modules, make sure to install BSD::Resource and the DBIx::Password. Sounds like the Password one wasn't installed.

    The slash.sites should be something like or whatever. Did you install the sites properly?

    FreeBSD and Slash work great, but it shouldn't be that much work....


    It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
  • Solution to my problem was actually interesting.

    You see when I installed slash (install-slash -uNAME)
    I used -uslash and when it asked you like to run slash as [nobody] - I answered 'nobody' (enter) and that's when the shit hits the fan!

    I think this is actually a bug or something? Looks like there is a conflict with "virtual user" and running slash as 'nobody'. It sure is in my FreeBSD box.
    BTW thanx for all the help!
