Installing Buildkite Agent on FreeBSD
This page references the out-of-date Buildkite Agent v2.
For docs referencing the Buildkite Agent v3, see the latest version of this document.
You can install Buildkite Agent on most FreeBSD systems.
You first need to ensure that both
bash are installed on your server:
sudo pkg install bash git sudo sh -c 'echo "fdesc /dev/fd fdescfs rw 0 0" >> /etc/fstab' sudo mount -a # The agent requires a version of bash to be available at: /bin/bash sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/bash /bin/bash # If you want change your default shell to bash sudo chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash `whoami` # You now switch to bash bash
Once they have been installed, you can run the following script (view the source), which will download and install the correct binary for your system and architecture:
TOKEN="INSERT-YOUR-AGENT-TOKEN-HERE" bash -c "`curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/buildkite/agent/main/install.sh`"
Then, start the agent:
Alternatively you can follow the manual installation instructions.
SSH Key Configuration
SSH keys should be copied to (or generated into)
~/.ssh/ for the user the agent is running as. For example, to generate a new private key which you can add to your source code host:
$ mkdir -p ~/.ssh && cd ~/.ssh $ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096 -C "firstname.lastname@example.org"
See the Agent SSH Keys documentation for more details.

The configuration file is located at
