When you issued portupgrade -a, you upgraded something that python depends upon (or something that python depends upon depends upon) without recompiling the dependancies (in this case python(?)). Find out what you upgraded that broke python and issue: portupgrade -fr <whatever-it-is> In general, when running portupgrade, I have found it to be a good idea to manually audit the packages to be upgraded for their general state of root-, trunk-, branch-, leaf-iness and issue several runs of portupgrade -fr <something> Not quite as fire&fail as portupgrade -a, but much less time-consuming than portupgrade -af. -- -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
