Hi

I get the following error when trying to make from the ports tree:

"/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2292: warning: String comparison operator should be either == or != "/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2292: warning: String comparison operator should be either == or != "/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2292: Malformed conditional (((${OSVERSION} < 504105 || (${OSVERSION} >= 600000 && ${OSVERSION} < 600103) || (${OSVERSION} >= 700000 && ${OSVERSION} < 700012)) && ${PKGORIGIN} != "ports-mgmt/pkg_install") || exists(${LOCALBASE}/sbin/pkg_info)) "/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2293: warning: String comparison operator should be either == or != "/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2293: warning: String comparison operator should be either == or != "/usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk", line 2293: Malformed conditional ((${OSVERSION} < 504105 || (${OSVERSION} >= 600000 && ${OSVERSION} < 600103) || (${OSVERSION} >= 700000 && ${OSVERSION} < 700012)) && ${PKGORIGIN} != "ports-mgmt/pkg_install")

Any help appreciated

Also I am not subscribed to the list so reply-all.


You forgot to mention which version of FreeBSD you're running, but
it's probably an ancient one that is no longer supported.

Kris



yup ok its an ancient one:
su-2.05a# uname -v
FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE : Tue Apr  8 11:35:48 GMT 2003

I am stuck with it (its a virtual server) so is there any way i can get ports working? I just love 'portinstall xyz'!


FreeBSD 4 is no longer supported in any way by ports, update to 6.2 or
make do with out-of-date ports that will never again be updated (you
can use the RELEASE_4_EOL tag until you can upgrade the box).

Kris



Thanks for your advice Kris. Unfortunately I just rent the virtual server so I dont think I am going to be able to upgrade the OS.

Cheers,

Brad
