Hi there,

I'm trying to install git-annex on my NAS which is freeNAS running freeBSD. I've created a jail for it and installed via: pkg install hs-git-annex

I've seen on this page: http://www.freshports.org/devel/hs-git-annex/ that there are Configuration Options. I assume to use those I'd have to have compiled it myself from the ports like this: To install the port: cd /usr/ports/devel/hs-git-annex/ && make install clean

So in this case of using the pkg, how can I check the way git-annex was compiled? Anyone else ever used it on freeBSD and can give some input please?

Figured out how to see this info:

git-annex version git-annex version: 5.20150727 build flags: Assistant Webapp Webapp-secure Pairing S3 WebDAV Kqueue XMPP DNS Feeds Quvi TDFA Database key/value backends: SHA256E SHA1E SHA512E SHA224E SHA384E SKEIN256E SKEIN512E MD5E SHA256 SHA1 SHA512 SHA224 SHA384 SKEIN256 SKEIN512 MD5 WORM URL remote types: git gcrypt S3 bup directory rsync web bittorrent webdav tahoe glacier ddar hook external

So apparently box.com isn't supported in this build?

I installed via a web terminal, not via a normal ssh connection so when I came back the installation with all dependencies was finished but I couldn't scroll back to see all warning, only caught this last part of the screen; anyone got any idea if git-annex is supposed to run fine on FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE-p26 amd64?

part of the text I caught: IN_CLOSE_WRITE

You might want to consider increasing the kern.maxfiles tunable if you plan
to use this library for applications that need to monitor activity of a lot
of files.

If the default on your system is too low, add the following line to
/boot/loader.conf, then reboot the system:
