FreeBSD 6.1 support

Discussion in 'Plesk for Linux - 8.x and Older' started by wettoast, May 26, 2006.

    Has anyone tried installing 8 on FreeBSD 6.1? If it's not supported yet, does anyone know when it will be? Plesk 8 promised to support new OS releases quicker, lets see if it will live up to that claim.

    It's a little difficult to test if it works on 6.1 they've added the 6.0 version to the installer. Anyone bothered to go as far as making and installer patch for me :)?

    Well I did it..and it seems to work just fine. I would suggest decompressing the installer then modifying the Tar file.

    All in all the plesk 8 for BSD 6.0 works fine on BSD 6.1

    Modify how? Wouldnt that change the checksum of the file? It's not surprising it work fine btw, as the FreeBSD POLA guarantees no API change on minor releases. Plesk should target major releases, and not restric to specific minor ones.

    Here are the steps to get it installed.

    Unzip the archive downloaded from swsoft

    Modify the Tar file as I did below.

    Line # New Code (What I changed)
    70934 conceived_os_version="6.1" (was "6.0")
    70935 osrels="fr6.1" (was "fr6.0")

    77312 5_3_5_3|5_4_5_4|6_1_6_1 (was 6_0_6_0)
    1454617 5_3_5_3|5_4_5_4|6_1_6_1 (was 6_0_6_0)

    Then UnTar everying and install

    Hope this helps

    I'm tottally lost.. you wouldn't post simple edit commands would you.. (because I'm not sure much about hex editing and or basic english editing I can do)

    If editing the tar it ends up looking like this..

    x95 \x92eK\x82\xdf^TDU\xdd\xca\x85B\xb0\xdb\xfbh^FU,\x8c^Q\xc3^La\x85"\xc32\xa9\xaeh\xc4\xb0^Ml1*\xe5\x86HIs\x81`\xc8\x90\xa1.T\xdb\xe4X\xe1\x8aiI\x92E\x

    If editing the .sh file there is english reading scripts.. and I edited portions that ended with freebsd 6.0 and 6_0_6_0

    This actually got the installer rolling into it hit the checksum and then said file corrupt..

    ===> Checking integrity of package...
    Package file appears to be corrupted. Please download
    original file from download page.
    Do not attempt to install this archive file.

    Just Search it

    There is actually plain text in the tar file mixed in with the hex/binary stuff. Just do searches on the original values and you'll find them.

    Good Luck

    Since editing the distribution file in Plesk 7 resulted in a checksum failiure, what i did on the FreeBSD 5 is fake the version to satisfy Plesk. That is, i would build and install from the latest RELENG5 sources, but modify /usr/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh to display 5.3. This worked great, but still, better wait for official 6.1 support, but god knows how long that will take, probably when 6.2 is out :p

    Well really my problem is likely vi I guess.. since I can't use nano/pico to open (too big)

    And I get even get the go to line command to work so.. I dunno guess I'll work through it.. course if you could just provide a download to a modified .tar file works for me

    I don't really want to mess around with a custom build wettoast for 6.1.. it'd be easier to just step back and do 6.0 then do that..

    Be happy to provide a ftp if needed for the file ;)

    Tried it got a error..

    reading file "psa_v8.0.0_build80060406.16_os_FreeBSD_6.0_i386.sh.tar"Segmentation fault (core dumped)

    I'm just going to give up for the moment unless some one wants to post a easier method..
