Hi, I've got a question about portupgrade and something that's happened with it a couple of times now. The last 2 times libgda has been upgraded, I've run portupgrade -a to upgrade a bunch of ports, including libgda.
The libgda upgrade has caused a re-install of mysql-client-4, but when portupgrade has tried to install mysql-client, it's failed because mysql-client is already installed. The workaround for this is simple enough, delete mysql-client and then run portupgrade again, but I'm wondering why this situation occurs - portupgrade should see that mysql-client is already installed and not try to install it again (or if it needs upgrading, it should deinstall the old version and build & install the new version). /etc/ports/UPDATING doesn't seem to help, there's no mention of either port in it. Perhaps my ports db is screwed up? Cheers, -- Ian gpg key: http://home.swiftdsl.com.au/~imoore/no-spam.asc
