Which failure are you referring to? The original one with the unbalanced add message, or the new one where it claims the package is already installed even though the previous installation reportedly failed? I can recreate the second one any number of times, but absent some specific suggestion it's not going to produce any more output than shown above. (I'm already specifying -v.) Short of wiping the drive and starting completely over, I have no idea how to go about reproducing the original failure without first fixing the newer one. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
