  1. Updating python3 to 3.6

    This article document how I updated python3 from version 3.5 to 3.6 on FreeBSD.

    This article is written for FreeBSD 11-STABLE amd64. The procedure on other supported FreeBSD versions should be similar if not identical. Commands following a “>” can be run as an unprivileged user. Commands following …

  2. Installing asymptote 2.38 in TeXLive 2016

    Since the previous article [1, 2] I’ve updated TexLive to 2016. This comes with asymptote 2.38, but not with a FreeBSD binary for it.

    My TeXLive is not installed from the FreeBSD ports tree, so I cannot use the asymptote port since it depends on the TeXLive port …

    Sometimes I need to update my FreeBSD operating system. I prefer to do that from the source code, so that my customizations in (/etc/src.conf) remain.

    # cd /usr/ports/multimedia/mpv
    # make install clean …
  6. Installing OpenProject on FreeBSD

    At work we want to run OpenProject. But since this a ruby-on-rails app and installation on Windows is not supported, I volunteered to set up a dedicated FreeBSD server for it.

    Server

    The server install was a basic FreeBSD 10 install done via the memory stick image. On the harddisk …

  7. Compiling asymptote for TeXLive on FreeBSD

    When I try to use the version of asymptote that comes with TeXLive, it fails with an error:

    Shared object “libreadline.so.7” not found, required by “asy”

    So I decided to recompile asymptote. Here’s how to do that.

    On my FreeBSD 9.2 system, the original asymptote program …
