Hi all, I use portsnap to keep the port tree of my FreeBSD 7 box up to date. According to portaudit, which I run nightly, there is a problem with the current version of libxml2. So, as usual, I run "sudo portsnap fetch && sudo portsnap update", and then:
$ cd /usr/ports/textproc/libxml2 $ sudo make deinstall $ sudo make reinstall clean But this last command results in an error: ===> libxml2-2.6.32 has known vulnerabilities: => libxml2 -- two vulnerabilities. Reference: <http://www.FreeBSD.org/ports/portaudit/d71da236-9a94-11dd-8f42-001c2514716c.html> => Please update your ports tree and try again. It would appear that the port has not yet been updated. Is this some temporary glitch? Otherwise, the approach I use is not very robust, since I have now managed to deinstall a library upon which a dozen or so programs depend. However, this is the first time this has happened. Comments, suggestions most welcome. Thanks. ----- Colin Brace Amsterdam http://lim.nl -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/updating-a-port-with-problems-%28libxml2%29-tp20028504p20028504.html Sent from the freebsd-questions mailing list archive at Nabble.com. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
