Description Bernard Spil freebsd_committer 2018-01-21 17:53:03 UTC
If a different conf-file is passed to unbound with 

> unbound_flags=" -c /var/unbound/unbound.conf"

unbound will fail to start with error

> unbound-checkconf[81255:0] fatal error: config file /usr/local/etc/unbound/unbound.conf is not inside chroot /var/unbound

This can be fixed by adding /var/unbound/unbound.conf to the rc-script in the unbound-checkconf line in pre-cmd

Probably the rc script needs to be amended to allow passing a config file and pass that to unbound-checkconf and (incl. -c) to unbound.

patch to mitigate the problem

This patch will have the desired effect when you add


to /etc/rc.conf

Note that you have to tailor that config file to your needs
Comment 2 Bernard Spil freebsd_committer 2018-01-24 11:04:26 UTC
Updated my port and this is working fine. That was roughly what I was expecting, thanks!

Works fine here, want me to commit it? (PORTREVISION bump?)
Comment 3 Jaap Akkerhuis 2018-01-25 22:24:33 UTC
I talked with the developers and there will be a release in a couple of weeks so I wanted to wait for that.

A revision bump is likely an overkill since I don't expect that a lot of people will change the default.
