Sorry, this was all discussed in the original thread. The port is the sysutils/libcdio port. I use portupgrade to keep things up to date. This machine is running FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE.
In this case libcdio itself upgrades correctly, but other ports (for example devel/gvfs), when i try to update them, report that libcdio is already installed and i need to make deinstall and then make reinstall of libcdio. I can do this, and it "works", but then rerunning portupgrade on gvfs reports the same thing about libcdio. If just do a make deinstall of libcdio and run portupgrade on gvfs, then gvfs will "sucessfully" install libcdio but when it gets back to gvfs, reports the same make deinstall/make reinstall thing. In general it seems that no matter what i do, other ports wont see libcdio as being correctly installed at the current version, and im looking for a way to solve this. Thanks.

If someone can make another suggestion, i would be very very greatful. As i said in the "libcdio upgrade problems" thread, i have installed the libcdio port, but when other ports try to build, they fail, telling me that libcdio is already installed and i need to make deinstall and make reinstall of it. I did this, but got the same message. Ive tried every variant, and would be happy to try brute force versions too. I deinstalled it and let the other port try to install it, i deinstalled all related ports so things could try again from scratch, i set the environment variables about forcing package registration, whatever i could. The ports tree is up to date. Id install libcdio as a package, but its not new enough. Something must be corrupted somewhere and i want to fix it, manually if necessary, but i just dont know what to do. Thanks again and sorry for the new thread, but Im running out of options. Jen Your post doesn't specify what version of FreeBSD you are using. Nor does your post specify what port(s) are the issue, or what utility if any you are using to upgrade a port. In general, you can use either portupgrade or portmanager to keep installed ports up to date. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
