I just successfully installed the plugin on FreeNAS-11.3-U2 The only odd thing I noted is that, when using NAT networking, the Admin portal URL shows incorrect in the post install popup, but it's correct everywhere else in the WebUI.

How did you get the jar / tar files? When I start the mineos gui I have no server list to choose from. What step did I miss? I am following the instructions on page 1 to a letter.

You'll start out without any Minecraft servers. That's where the MineOS UI comes in; you first download a profile and than create a server.

There's a link to the instructional video in this post or just search YouTube.

Hi, I'm trying to setup MineOS, and getting an error with pkg install rdiff-backup (or sysutils/rdiff-backup):

Code:
pkg: No packages available to install matching 'sysutils/rdiff-backup' have been found in the repositories


pkg has been set to use latest not quarterly.

Any ideas?

Use this as a guide:

pkg install doesn't take the category prefixes like "www/" so it's supposed to be pkg install rdiff-backup.
If package cannot be found because the guide laggs behind, you can always try a pkg search rdiff, to name one example.

HTH,
Patrick

P.S. I assume you are trying this in a jail. It won't work on the FreeNAS host system.

Hi yes, within a Jail. Doing pkg install rdiff-backup fails:

Code:
pkg: No packages available to install matching 'rdiff-backup' have been found in the repositories


pkg search rdiff gives:

Code:
colordiff-1.0.19               Tool to colorize diff output
dirdiff-2.1_4                  Graphical diff tool
py37-rdiff-backup-2.0.0        Easy to use and efficient backup and restore utility


Going to try "py37-rdiff-backup-2.0.0".

Yes, the python based ports have grown a version prefix some time ago, so that is the one.
pkg install py37-rdiff-backup, drop the version number when installing.

Right, all installed but connecting to the admin page is not working. Will have a look at what I done wrong now :)

Thanks @Patrick M. Hausen for the help.
