2004-03-06 FreeBSD installation notes
FreeBSD is not my 'main' operating system, but the jail support is
so much better and more stable than anything comparable offered by
Linux that I use FreeBSD for servers which need jails.

But it not being 'main' I keep forgetting things to set up ;)

Setting global variables for ports:

Servers will never have X11 (nor GTK) so I kept giving WITHOUT_X11=yes and
WITHOUT_GTK=yes to compile ports. Global place to set this: /etc/make.conf

Getting into a jail from the main server when sshd isn't running yet:

jexec ID /bin/sh

(ID is the jail id from jls)

Stopping a jail:

jexec ID kill -TERM -1
jexec ID kill -KILL -1


IPv6 check
