RE: [ezjail] [PATCH] setting the jail 'name' for use in the 'jexec' command

 Hi Rudy, I've sent this a few times but it doesn't seem to get through.
It might suit your needs. 

Kind regards, Dewayne.

I think this might be a cleaner and more general purpose solution.  I have
a jail b1 that builds the port system, and it needs sysvipc.  So append the
following line to /usr/local/etc/ezjail/b1

export jail_b1_parameters="allow.sysvipc allow.raw_sockets"

Then place the following into
So it is applied during a port rebuild

From within the jail, these sysctls are set

security.jail.sysvipc_allowed: 1
security.jail.allow_raw_sockets: 1

(Though I must admit that I expected the following to be set

I hope that this is of some use to you. Oh, the patch also enables me to
jexec b1 tcsh # because numbers are hard to remember

PS I'm not technical just a tenacious bastard, so there's probaby a better
solution :)
