After hitting a steep learning curve on several occasions over the last few months (and rolling back down it!) I finally got stuck into setting up my own package repository so I can play with some packages.
It's taken me a ridiculous amount of time to get where I am (which is no where!) but now I seem to be completely stuck.
I'm using the same FreeBSD 8.1 machine I have setup for compiling to host the repo. I have installed apache 2.2 and php5.2. That took ages!
I have installed pear and the xml_rpc package for pear but when I go to <myserver>/pkg_tester.php I get:
Fatal error: Class 'PEAR' not found in /usr/local/www/apache22/data/pfSense/xmlrpc_client.inc on line 41
Any thoughts? As you can probably guess this is way outside my experience.
Also the wiki article says:
Beware, this repository is very large, and will consume a lot of disk space.
However when I cloned it from github it was around 80MB. Is that right?
Thanks for any comments.
