Poudriere

Note: This will not work in a jail because Poudriere requires additional permissions. But you should be able to run this in VirtualBox.

Background

In this tutorial we will install and configure Poudriere, a tool for building packages on FreeBSD.

Requirements

Poudriere

Installation

sudo pkg install poudriere

sudo mkdir -p /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/.m
sudo mkdir -p /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/cache
sudo mkdir -p /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/logs
sudo mkdir -p /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/packages
sudo mkdir -p /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/wrkdirs

sudo mount_nullfs /usr/local/poudriere/data/.m /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/.m
sudo mount_nullfs /usr/local/poudriere/data/cache /usr/jails/pkg/usr/local/poudriere/data/cache
