Hi, I inherited a FreeBSD 4.8 box that had a lot of out of date ports on it. in trying to fix some of this, i seem to have screwed up the package or ports system in a way i cant manage to fix.
For example if i try to run "portversion" i get: undefined method `each' for nil:NilClass /usr/local/sbin/portversion:239: [BUG] Bus Error from Ruby (ruby 1.8.5 is up to date on the system). If i try to run "pkg_info" I quickly get: pkg_info: read_plist: bad command '@conflicts apache+ipv6-1.*' (i googled for similar problems and there were a few other reports of this, with other packages, but no suggestion of how to fix them.) If i try to rebuild my ports index, I get gnopernicus-0.12.0: "/usr/ports/accessibility/gnome-speech" non-existent -- dependency list incomplete" and nothing will go further. How can i get all of this sorted? i was really hoping to be able to update most of this sytem but now i cant even get started to find out what needs it :-( Jen --------------------------------- All-new Yahoo!
