Hello all,
I'm getting the following error when I use portsnap lately on one of my
[mesh:/home/gary]# portsnap fetch
Looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 2 mirrors found.
Fetching snapshot tag from portsnap2.FreeBSD.org... done.

gunzip: stdin: not in gzip format
snapshot is corrupt.
I have now removed /var/db/portsnap and started from scratch 3 times. This
fixes the problem, but a few days later, I get the same story. I haven't had
any problems on any of the other servers (although they have older kernels),
so I'm guessing this could be a problem with portsnap from this kernel build
or it's related to something else.

Anyone got any ideas?
