[Solve] freebsd-update fail

Post by playforvoices » Wed Jan 21, 2015 3:00 pm

Hello BSD Folks...

I'm new to BSD (only a little OSX base system). I just installed GhostBSD 4 at a VirtualBox Drive. The installation works fine. My problem came with the freebsd-update command. At first I upgraded pkg and bash then I type

Code: Select all

freebsd-update fetch install
The update perform and fetch the needed files. These files where added

Code: Select all

 

The following files will be added as part of updating to 10.0-RELEASE-p16:
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Antarctica/Troll
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Chita
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Srednekolymsk
/usr/src/contrib/tzdata/zone1970.tab
At last it ended with the error message

Code: Select all

Installing updates...install: ///usr/src/contrib/tzdata/zone1970.tab No such file or directory done.
How can I solve these problem?

It is because you missing /usr/src.
I am not sure if you can get it since FreeBSD 10.1 is out.

I found it ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/relea ... SE/src.txz and ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/relea ... SE/src.txz.

You will need to extract it as root user or using sudo to /.
