FreeBSD users will need to change the Perl shebangs at the top of the executables from #!/usr/bin/perl
to #!/usr/local/bin/perl in most cases.
Sorry folks, but if I set this with #!/usr/bin/env perl as suggested, then nothing works properly
from a typical cron environment on EITHER operating system, Linux or BSD. I'm mostly using Linux
systems, so I get to set the shebang for my use and give you folks a FREEBSD readme rather than
the other way around. =)
If you don't want to have to change the shebangs, your other option is to drop a symlink on your system:
root@bsd:~# ln -s /usr/local/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl
After putting this symlink in place, ANY perl script shebanged for Linux will work on your system too.
Syncoid assumes a bourne style shell on remote hosts. Using (t)csh (the default for root under FreeBSD)
has some known issues:
* If mbuffer is present, syncoid will fail with an "Ambiguous output redirect." error. So if you:
root@bsd:~# ln -s /usr/local/bin/mbuffer /usr/bin/mbuffer
make sure the remote user is using an sh compatible shell.
To change to a compatible shell, use the chsh command:
root@bsd:~# chsh -s /bin/sh
