Issue installing semaphore in FreeBSD

I’m currently trying to install sentry in FreeBSD but for some reason, one package is breaking and make it impossible to install.

We don’t support FreeBSD.

Would appreciate any help to patch this error thanks

There’s nothing we can help with, we don’t support FreeBSD.

Just as an FYI, I got Sentry 9.0.0 working on my FreeBSD 11 box, the simple workaround to the libsodium build error seen above is to install the FreeBSD security/libsodium port, and then install Sentry with:

RUST_SODIUM_LIB_DIR=/usr/local/lib pip install -U sentry

Overall, the build dependencies you’ll need to install from FreeBSD ports before installing Sentry are:


The only other glitch is an error:

   redis-py-cluster 1.3.6 has requirement redis==2.10.6, but you'll have redis 2.10.5 which is incompatible.

But I’ve seen that on a Linux install too. The fix that worked for me was to downgrade redis-py-cluster slightly to a version that
sentry is OK with, and is OK with the version of redis that sentry wants:

pip install -U redis-py-cluster==1.3.4

Once I got it up, it looks and acts just like the Linux install I did on another machine.
