The problem I pointed to is, that at the RELEASE_6_2 two packages of firefox and openoffice.org exists and via pkg_add -r I receive the older package of them both, because the links in .../Latest/ are pointing to the older packages, but the newer packages are available for RELEASE_6_2 (I don't mean RELENG_6)! ___________________________________________________________ Der frühe Vogel fängt den Wurm.
