to be honest, CURRENT is becoming a real pain to get updates for. it's taken, more than a month this time, to get things where they actually build.

I'll pass this along, for a better response.

Thank you.
So it means replacing 'gets' with 'fgets' should fix it.
I'll try it if I manage to update my CURRENT.
Is there a way to forward this fix to TrueOS devs - or even FreeBSD's?
(I give up reporting bugs in FreeBSD's bug system. It seems my e-mails are never delivered, and recovering my password never works there.)

I imagine. I use VMware for *BSD, and I can't get any of them to boot under CURRENT, except for Trident. I was assuming you guys had some magical powers! :cool: Until now. 19-10 won't boot. Downloads all 900+ packages, I reboot, it installs the packages, boots, I reboot, it goes through the menu, tries to do the initial load, and... fail.

Oh, well. Back to 19-08. No biggie. Maybe next time. :) (And thanks for all the hard work you guys do!)
