What program(s) needed to be added


What I’d like to see in the pkglist are the tools required to compile ports.
There’s no dialog4ports, no cc compiler… in the Trident release. Yes, I can use app cafe, but why not have them already installed as standard?
At the moment curl (ftp) is vulnerable and the TrueOS port [git pull] has the fix, yet until a Trident update is ready I can’t remedy the curl version (as there are cc errors for missing apps I can’t uncover).
Portsnap doesn’t work either in current Trident release - though I prefer git pull if the ports are kept up to date.




we use the trueos ports, so they should just work.

Hello Rod,
I would appreciate gnome3 metaport (not -lite)… In Poudriere it seems stuck on the spice-gtk-0.35 dependency, which in turn doesn’t get compiled reporting “unknown component ssl”




That almost sounds like an “OpenSSL vs LibreSSL” thing.

This thread has been very interesting, seeing what programs people consider essential. To me it also shows the power of the Ports system in the BSDs:
Keep the install media as minimal as possible to save bw and time downloading it, but make sure everyone knows how to find the program they need (AppCafe or the pkg command).

The metaport, would be, at a best, trueos issue. At worst, would be a freebsd issue



I just noticed that ncrack is on FreshPorts, but it is not on the TrueOS/Trident repo… Can we add that one?




checking whether OpenSSL’s headers match the library… no
configure: error: Your OpenSSL headers do not match your
library. Check config.log for details.
If you are sure your installation is consistent, you can disable the check
by running “./configure --without-openssl-header-check”.
Also see contrib/findssl.sh for help identifying header/library mismatches.

configure: error: ./configure failed for opensshlib
===> Script “configure” failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to lx@FreeBSD.org [maintainer] and attach the
“/wrkdirs/usr/ports/security/ncrack/work/ncrack-0.6.0/config.log” including
the output of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea
to provide an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a
/usr/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).

Please add BOINC-* to Trident. Should be working, according to freshports. Last updates for all 12/2018.

Lets add virt-manager to this list… It’s listed on freshports.org



I still use pc-diskmanager. I find it VERY helpful. It breaks down frequently, so I assume it’s code is becoming more and more outdated. But it still gets many tasks done quickly and easily. My request is for it to be updated as part of the base project. Who doesn’t need to handle zpool and zfs commands from time to time? If you don’t use these commands frequently it is easy to get sequences of changes wrong. Diskmanager avoids that.

It might even be morphed into a zpool or zfs backup utility - right click on a zfs item and be offered the opportunity to automate snapshots or send receive them somewhere, as the old life preserver utility did.

By the way, does Trident-project have a different option for graphical zfs zpool management I haven’t found yet?

Great thread.
