Creating Custom Packages on FreeBSD

Hi folks, long time no see. Today we are going to cover how to build pkg(8) (pkgng) packages away from the FreeBSD ports tree. This is useful for external/private repositories (mostly bigger ones or generally fast-moving) or non-conventional ports like database content or even system updates. pkg(8) itself provides the essential pkg-create(8) tool, as well as pkg-query(8), which we will use to generate embedded dependencies.


worst mistake

The worst mistake in my life
Were your eyes, your eyes, your eyes.
The worst turn which I took
Was to shut up, shut up, shut up.
The worst present I got
was your support, support, support.
Where love ought to be found
you tiptoed around, around and round.

Not much now does remain
except fiery flaming pain;
For it was all in vain, in vain, in vain:
You’re still the same, the same old same
and I’m to blame, to blame, to blame
for playing a game, your game, sad game.

About Trust (2)

He answered with grave kindness, “I know it was hard for you to quite trust me then, for to trust such violence needs to understand, and I take it that you do not, that you cannot, trust me now, for you do not yet understand. And there may be more times when I shall want you to trust when you cannot, and may not, and must not yet understand. But the time will come when your trust shall be whole and complete in me, and when you shall understand as though the sunlight himself shone through. Then you shall bless me from first to last for your own sake, and for the sake of others, and for her dear sake to whom I swore to protect.”
