Hi all, At some point after my original installation of v.7-BETA3 in late November and a subsquent upgrade to BETA4 with Colin Percival's freebsd-update, installing packages remotely with pkg_add on my system broke. For example:
$ sudo pkg_add -vr rtorrent scheme: [ftp] user:  password:  host: [ftp.freebsd.org] port:  document: [/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest/rtorrent.tbz] ---> ftp.freebsd.org:21 looking up ftp.freebsd.org connecting to ftp.freebsd.org:21 <<< 220 ftp.FreeBSD.org NcFTPd Server (licensed copy) ready. >>> USER anonymous <<< 331 Guest login ok, send your complete e-mail address as password. >>> PASS [EMAIL PROTECTED] <<< 230-You are user #181 of 1000 simultaneous users allowed. <<< 230- <<< 230 Logged in anonymously. >>> PWD <<< 257 "/" is cwd. >>> CWD pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest <<< 250 "/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest" is new cwd. >>> MODE S <<< 200 Mode okay. >>> TYPE I <<< 200 Type okay. binding data socket >>> PORT 172,19,3,3,209,68 <<< 200 PORT command successful. initiating transfer >>> RETR rtorrent.tbz <<< 550 Cannot connect to 184.108.40.206:53572 - Unknown error: 0. Error: FTP Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest/rtorrent.tbz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access) pkg_add: unable to fetch 'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest/rtorrent.tbz' by URL pkg_add: 1 package addition(s) failed Now, I *know* the package and host are online; I can copy and paste the URL from the screen to grab it with wget: wget ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current/Latest/rtorrent.tbz This works. What could be going wrong with add_pkg here? As I indicate above, I am currently at 7.0-BETA4 Thanks. -- Colin Brace Amsterdam http://lim.nl _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
