:> pkgdb -f ~ $ sudo pkgdb -f ~ $ portversion undefined method `each' for nil:NilClass /usr/local/sbin/portversion:239: [BUG] Bus Error ruby 1.8.5 (2006-08-25) [i386-freebsd4] Abort trap (core dumped) ~ $ > > If i try to run "pkg_info" I quickly get: > > pkg_info: read_plist: bad command '@conflicts apache+ipv6-1.*' :> Deinstall the package that was built for a later version of :> FreeBSD. KrisHow do i tell which this is? Most of this box seems to be compiled from ports, not installed packages. apache+ipv6 is not installed. ~ $ pkg_info ImageMagick-nox11-184.108.40.206 Image processing tools analog-6.0_1,1 An extremely fast program for analysing WWW logfiles pkg_info: read_plist: bad command '@conflicts apache+ipv6-1.*' ~ I rebuilt analog from ports but that doesnt seem to be it.
