Description Eirik Oeverby 2020-08-23 08:38:07 UTC
The port is creating hardlinks in stagedir which pollutes the package, making it impossible to install on systems where /usr/local/share and /var/db are on different filesystems (which will be a lot of systems).

Example file:
stage# find . -name Filebeat-Postgresql-slowlogs.json|xargs ls -i
313585 ./usr/local/share/beats/filebeat/module/postgresql/_meta/kibana/6/dashboard/Filebeat-Postgresql-slowlogs.json
313585 ./var/db/beats/filebeat/kibana/6/dashboard/Filebeat-Postgresql-slowlogs.json

The COPYTREE_SHARE macro uses cpio -l, which creates links instead of actually copying files.

Note: This probably also applies to sysutils/beats7

Thanks for the report, I will take care of it. Currently also beats7 is scheduled for update (final tests are pending), so I will look also on it.
Comment 2 Juraj Lutter freebsd_committer 2020-08-23 09:23:46 UTC
beats7 does not install anything under /var/db/beats.

I'm also investigating why beats6 need(ed) kibana files under /var/db/beats.

I've got the same problem with hardlink:

===>  Installing for beats6-6.8.12
===>  Checking if beats6 is already installed
===>   Registering installation for beats6-6.8.12

*** Error code 70

Previous version of beats6 installs fine.
Comment 4 Eirik Oeverby 2020-10-09 21:33:45 UTC
Any progress on beats6?
Comment 5 Alex 2020-11-10 11:01:24 UTC
The problem was fixed in HEAD/beats6-6.8.13. Can you backport this to the 2020Q4 branch as well? 

Thanks very much!
