I have been using portupgrade with a new tree, initially portupgrade -Pa of which not all succeeded the first time round, largely because although necessary packages were present, necessary libraries had gone missing. This last time, after lengthy recompiling to get gnucash working, konqueror began reporting kio-slave i:o errors. I reinstalled kdelibs3 and its dependencies. It works again, but there is a marked loss of performance. Now kalarm reports missing libraries.
A poster referred me to the /usr/ports/UPDATING notice on libtool, which I read with dismay. It indicates that automatic updaters should be used "carefully." I only know what I have read in the Handbook and in the man page, and so can't yet aspire to this "careful" standard. I can't find agreement on a fix in the archives. As for kalarm: bsd# ldd /usr/local/bin/kalarm /usr/local/bin/kalarm: [snip] libgmodule-2.0.so.600 => not found (0x0) libgthread-2.0.so.600 => not found (0x0) I searched the archive. There is a thread about this here: http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/htdig/freebsd-questions/2005-November/104464.html indicating that the problem is an improper port upgrade, in that ports relying on glib had not been updated. It suggests using the automatic processes that UPDATING says should be used with care. My best guess was: portupgrade -r glib-2.8.6_1 portupgrade -f glib-2.8.6_1 but these libraries remain missing. I will have to attempt this symlink solution for want of anything better, as I rely on kalarm, but does anyone have a better solution?
