Im trying to get a new install going, and it wont let me install win32-codecs (and therefor mplayer and xine and everything i need to watch multimedia). Its marked as "forbidden: remote code execution". The URL it gives just shows why it can be dangerous. Is there any workaround, or a way to force this? Im willing to take the chance and i never view quicktime websites anyway, and its hard not to watch movies on this new machine! Thanks! Jen Taken from post October of last year: As per the ports(7) man page: DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES If defined, disable check for security vulnerabilities using portaudit(1) (ports/security/portaudit) when installing new ports. i.e.: cd /usr/ports/www/mozilla DISABLE_VULNERABILITIES=1 make install here is the post http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2006-October/036276.html jeremy Ah, thanks! I did search back to December or so but thought that this would have come up then, and i checked UPDATING and there was nothing there so i gave up. I should have checked further. Thanks to you and to Kelly (separate reply, also worked) for getting me on the right path. Jen --------------------------------- Don't get soaked. Take a quick peak at the forecast with theYahoo!
