After that: setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6-stable/Latest/ and: pkg_add -r openoffice.org It still installs the version 1.1.5... It seems they forgot until now to update this link... I have written to [EMAIL PROTECTED] the maintainer of this port. Now I will wait until they answer... ___________________________________________________________ Der frühe Vogel fängt den Wurm. Hier gelangen Sie zum neuen Yahoo!
