Comments on: Managing ports for multiple FreeBSD servers Yet another WordPress weblog Tue, 29 Jan 2019 15:43:05 +0000 hourly 1 By: r00t Mon, 05 Feb 2018 11:55:06 +0000 @DidG: you’re welcome.

Re: Building two versions of the same port: perfect use case for profiles. If you execute ‘synth configure’ you can switch/create new profile which can use a different ports tree (/usr/ports2 for example). You then svn ports collection to /usr/ports2 and configure a particular port with custom options.

Re: Exposing both of them: exposing both repositories shouldn’t be an issue (you can define all of them in /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf file). How will pkg handle the same port which is available in both repositories? According to ‘man pkg-repository’ pkg will pick the one with the highest version. This can be overwritten with ‘-r name_of_your_repository’ switch.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for your great introduction. Is there a way to build two versions of the same port with different config options on the synth server and expose both of them to the VM’s at the same time ?

By: Michael Kastner Thu, 26 Oct 2017 07:07:06 +0000 Thanks for your great introduction and receipe. I’ve tried poudriere but it’s just too much of a hassle compared to synth. At least for my purposes. You’ve saved me a lot of time.
