Dynagen in FreeBSD

After ports unfreeze, I do some directory ports walking ( wanna analogy it as blogwalking icon smile Dynagen in FreeBSD ), find dynagen and dynamips ports. I thought dynagen not available in FreeBSD but I’m wrong icon smile Dynagen in FreeBSD

su-2.05b# whereis dynamips

dynamips: /usr/ports/emulators/dynamips

su-2.05b# whereis dynagen

dynagen: /usr/ports/emulators/dynagen

su-2.05b# ls /usr/ports/emulators | grep dyna


wow, try dynagen first icon smile Dynagen in FreeBSD

su-2.05b# cd /usr/ports/emulators/dynagen/

See version

Version 0.9, no time for installation but prepare the file is OK

su-2.05b# make fetch

On FreeBSD before 6.2 ports system unfortunately can not set default X11BASE by itself so please help it a bit by setting X11BASE=${LOCALBASE} in make.conf.
On the other hand, if you do wish to use non-default X11BASE, please set variable USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE.
*** Error code 1

Sigh, this box is 4.11 not 6.2, try add more option in ‘make’

su-2.05b# make USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE=1 fetch

P.S : I should learn about how to modifiy ports, dynagen has reach 0.9.2 but ports still 0.9 icon smile Dynagen in FreeBSD

One Comment

  1. Dynagen is still at 0.9.0, because 0.9.2 does not work with stable (released) version of dynamips.
