A private FreeBSD Erlang Port

The official port status in Freshports is https://www.freshports.org/lang/erlang/.

Please check FreeBSD official Ports first.

I will no longer maintain this archive regularly.

Jimmy Olgeni has been actively maintaining the original Erlang and other related ports.

Obsolete: tentative revival: for 18.2

18-DEC-2015 1422UTC: 18.2.1 merged to Ports r403962. See http://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports?view=revision&revision=403962. Thx Jimmy Olgeni!

18-DEC-2015 1400UTC: The HiPE patch has been merged to OTP 18.2.1.

18-DEC-2015: This is an unofficial experimental FreeBSD Erlang Port enabling HiPE for 18.2 on 10.2-STABLE, built based on Jimmy Olgeni's Ports lang/erlang and lang/erlang-runtime18.

See https://github.com/erlang/otp/pull/926 for the patch details for HiPE.

DTrace support

http://wiki.freebsd.org/DTrace is a must read for testing DTrace.

At least you've got to do the following things:

  • Rebuild the kernel with all the necessary options.
  • Add necessary definitions in make.conf; Erlang BEAM works on the userland.
  • Compile the Port with the root privilege; otherwise dtrace -h won't work.
  • Invoke dtrace command with the root privilege when profiling; using sudo may help. (You don't have to run the target Erlang BEAM privileged BTW.)
