By setting PACKAGESITE to one of the http mirrors (there aren't that many). For example: env PACKAGESITE=http://ftp2.de.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/packages/All/ pkg_add -r your_package-ver.si.on.tbz To make this permanent, add PACKAGESITE variable to root's .profile and/or .login. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
