Hi, Can anyone give me a tip on how to properly integrate a local package so that I don't get:
pkg_delete: package xxxxx has no origin recorded errors? I've tried adding a line like: @comment ORIGIN:local/xxxx to the +CONTENTS file for the package, but then portmanager complains that it is nonexistent and won't complete 'portmanager -s'. To make matters more awkward, this package is built from a closed-source binary distribution and thus can't be properly ported, so I can't set it up properly. What I'd like is for management tools to acknowledge its existence, yet ignore it entirely for the purposes of maintenance. For instance, I have already made it a held package under pkgtools.conf, which seems to satisfy portupgrade ok. I'm happy with the package I've made, as it enables me to check what version is installed with pkg_info, I just want it to play nicely with other real ports! joel -- Joel Hatton -- Infrastructure Manager | Hotline: +61 7 3365 4417 AusCERT - Australia's national CERT | Fax: +61 7 3365 7031 The University of Queensland | WWW: www.auscert.org.au Qld 4072 Australia | Email: [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
