<snip incomplete backtrace> You will have to recompile pkg_delete with debug symbols to get any idea. To do so, do the following (providing you have sources in /usr/src): cd /usr/src/usr.sbin/pkg_install make clean make obj make DEBUG_FLAGS='-ggdb' depend make DEBUG_FLAGS='-ggdb' all install If this gives errors, it's best to do a full buildworld/installworld. -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
