i think the easiest way will be to set the variable PACKAGESITE to ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/All/ (or that of your other favorite mirror) for bash-like shells, export PACKAGESITE=ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/All/ or csh-like shells, setenv PACKAGESITE ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/All/ then 'pkg_add -r xorg' and it should grab it. if not, try naming it by full package name, 'pkg_add -r xorg-6.9.0'. good luck, -- Jonathan Horne http://dfwlpiki.dfwlp.org [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
