Lessons learned from source upgrade from FreeBSD i386 9.2 Stable to FreeBSD i386 10.0 Release.

D) Many Gnome ports still had issues with continuing to link to "libiconv.so.3", such as avahi-app and gdm. People who deleted all ports, removed /usr/local and reinstalled have reported that they do not have the problem. Apparently, some Gnome components are finicky about how they are built. A note from https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/Jhbuild/FreeBSD > Remove all .la files from the packages you just installed to prevent > problems during the build. > You'll have to remember to do this again each time you install more > packages. I deleted the contents of /usr/local/lib and ran portupgrade -afu which rebuilt most of the problematic ports. -- View this message in context: http://freebsd.1045724.n5.nabble.com/Lessons-learned-from-source-upgrade-from-FreeBSD-i386-9-2-Stable-to-FreeBSD-i386-10-0-Release-tp5878896p5880955.html Sent from the freebsd-current mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
