Pf 2.01 Release and Virtualbox ose addition
« on: March 24, 2012, 11:10:40 am »
hi , i m using Virtualbox in Windows and 2.0.1-RELEASE (i386) built on Mon Dec 12 18:24:17 EST 2011 as

guest, before upgrade i use Pfsense 2.0 rc 1 and add package using 'pkg_add -r virtualbox-ose-additions'.

Its run fine but now i cant , when i tried to add that package its says "unable to get _URL_ file

unavailable, file not found, no access. Unable to fetch by URL". Is there any workaround to add this

package?

TQ

This is not a 2.1 issue.

The problem is that FreeBSD archived the packages for 8.1 so you need to either change where pfSense is looking or tell it where the file is directly. E.g.

Code: [Select]
pkg_add -r ftp://ftp-archive.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD-Archive/ports/i386/packages-8.1-release/All/virtualbox-ose-additions-3.2.6.tbz
