I’ve have been doing some progress on my journey with bare FreeBSD, the BSDNow.tv tutorials are good and provide reasonable defaults to get started quickly. I quicklygot both a poudriere package builder inside a VM of my workstation and ezjail up and running on a small homeserver with an Atom CPU (that is quite not that quick a building). I actually wanted some extra switches enabled in my self-built packages not present in the binaries frome from pkg.freebsd.org.
One jail would become a testbed for OpenLDAP I configured poudriere to build net/openldap24-server (default, except with SASL as enabled in i.e. Debian) and since I like and use: devel/git (default). When I wanted to install git AND the OpenLDAP package in this jail, pkg ended ith an obscure message telling me that files in openldap24-client conflicted with openldap24-sasl-client. Following the dependencies I tried to find the cause of the dependency conflict:
- devel/git depends on ftp/curl (default)
- ftp/curl was (non-standard) configured to support LDAP and LDAPS since I want to play with LDAP:
- That is what caused a dependency on openldap24-client for git.
- Most other packages will do so once LDAP/LDAPS support is enabled (i.e. php5) – not on openldap-sasl-client.
- net/openldap24-server with SASL results
- in a package called openldap24-sasl-server (not openldap24-server!)
- in a dependency of the server package depending on openldap24-sasl-client
- Both openldap24-sasl-client got built and openldap24-client were almost identical (beyond SASL-support) and thus they conflict since they provide the same thing
I wanted SASL support but also git and curl. For whatever reason to fix this was to change make.conf as follows:
Using poudriere and a build jail called 10amd64, this was in: /usr/local/etc/poudriere.d/10amd64-make.conf. Afterwards I (preferred to) completely rebuild all package to make sure all package would take that switch (with -c):
poudriere -f /path/to/list-of-pkgs -j 10amd64 -c
Afterwards on the destined ldap server both git and openldap-(sasl)-server now depended on openldap-sasl-client and could be installed alongside:
# pkg install git openldap-sasl-server Updating repository catalogue The following 19 packages will be installed: [...] Installing cyrus-sasl: 2.1.26_3 [1Labs] Installing openldap-sasl-client: 2.4.38 [1Labs] Installing curl: 7.33.0_1 [1Labs] Installing openldap-sasl-server: 2.4.38 [1Labs] Installing git: 22.214.171.124 [1Labs] The installation will require 279 MB more space 20 MB to be downloaded Proceed with installing packages [y/N]:y
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to quickly find a reliable source why that switch has to be placed or is more closely explained. It can be found in a couple of packages, likely someon with more thorough FreeBSD experience would be able to bring a correct cause. It thoug causes packages with LDAP dependency to move their dependency from the normal to the sasl-enabled OpenLDAP client. At least, once I found about WANT_OPENLDAP_SASL, finding others who had this issue wasn’t difficult at all, i.e.
