comment Failure when make installworld is invoked to create a jail template in FreeBSD
I'll try this when I have some more time. I ended up 'solving' the problem by using ezjail.

I must have forgotten to remount after a restart.

That's done afterward; see Chapter 15 of the handbook or the link in my post.

comment pkg_add Environment on FreeBSD
The PACKAGESITE I gave originally is a typo--it's now fixed as I used a URL to a directory in practice. Regardless, nothing you have said refutes any points in my comment--there is no reason to use the URL you gave in either the man page or the handbook. I have no rage, just a desire for clarity. I consider this closed.

I most certainly does not work as advertised. Nowhere in the man page does it mention in any way whatsoever that you have to add 'Latest' on to the end of the URLs and the handbook's example doesn't bring attention to that at all. Moreover, the URLs i gave in my example actually contain the packages that I'm looking for. It may work, but the documentation needs to be 'there' in the case of the man pages and requiring 'Latest' on the end of the URL needs to be highlighted in the case of the handbook.

comment Locked Out of FreeBSD
Good idea; definitely worth a try. Why not put it as an answer and get some rep? If it works, you'll get 25 from me alone.

comment Using the -H Option to Create Users with the pw Utility
I guess I shouldn't work so late so that I read the man page properly. File descriptor is no problem anyway--I can just read a file when I run my script and pass it along. Thanks.
