Hello

        Since 7.0 fails installing on a Hitachi IDE drive, I installed a
Minimal 6.2, but once done, its fails downloading packages:

freebsd# pkg_add -r bash

Error: FTP Unable to get
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/Latest/bash.tbz:
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch
'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/Latest/bash.tbz'
by URL

Indeed, there's no
/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/Latest/

Found it under /pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6-stable/shells/

So...
1. cd /tmp
2. fetched bash-3.2.33.tbz
3. pkg_add -r ./bash-3.2.33.tbz
Error: FTP Unable to get
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/Latest/./bash-3.2.33.tbz:
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch
'ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6.2-release/Latest/./bash-3.2.33.tbz'
by URL

Am I missing some configuration somewhere that would explain why 6.2
is having a hard time finding packages on the official site?

Thank you.
