Introducing fbsdmon (

There are some websites that keep track of new FreeBSD ports, such as the FreeBSD ports page or Freshports, and some that track (Free)BSD installations, such as bsdstats.

I was not aware, but there’s also fbsdmon that measures ports popularity and lets you submit statistics of your system (if you have installed the fbsdmon port). The website, maintained by FreeBSD developer Grzegorz Blach,  also shows links to the FreeBSD RSS feeds.

Does anybody use If you have any feedback, feel free to contact Grzegorz.

Thanks Grzegorz for contacting me and making me aware. If you have a FreeBSD related product, service or website that you want featuring, let me know.

    I have fbsdmon installed on 1 system, i tried to install it on 3 more systems but i got this problem with a dependency:

    ===> pkgconf-0.8.9 conflicts with installed package(s):

    They install files into the same place.
    Please remove them first with pkg_delete(1).

    (this happend with updated ports on FreeBSD 9.1 amd64 and FreeBSD 8.2 amd64)

  2. Grzegorz Blach says

    devel/pkg-config has been replaced by devel/pkgconf

    Try: `portmaster -o devel/pkgconf devel/pkg-config`
    and then: `portmaster ports-mgmt/fbsdmon`
