suggested pkg-message for www/falkon

Using falkon on FreeBSD-11.2 loading Web content sometimes fails with pages that never finish their loading. The issue is reproducible by just visiting pages at random and more complex pages seem to be more likely to cause the loading problem.

I read in www/firefox/pkg-message that on FreeBSD versions  < 11.3 there is a known bug concerning the base system (bug #181741)  for which a workaround exists: setting net.local.stream.recvspace to 16384 through sysctl. I tried the workaround and it seems to fix falkon too: I suggest creating a www/falkon/pkg-message file with a similar message.

You can find a possibile www/falkon/pkg-message suggestion in the attachment: it is the same text of www/firefox/pkg-message (only the relevant part), except that I changed the prompt "$" with "#" (this should suggest that sysctl must be run as root and not as normal user).

To confirm that the issue is probably related to the FreeBSD system I can add that I used falkon before with the same hardware on Linux and I never had this problem.

Hi Lorenzo

Is this still an issue (I think the fix has been mfc-ed). If so, I'll add it :)

Yes, it is still an issue: I have just tested (on 11.2-RELEASE amd64).

If you thought the bug was fixed because bug #181741 is, observe that it was closed in date 2018-08-17, while I reported the bug in date 2018-10-20.
