There's the culprit. strcmp called on a null pointer. The reason is that the +CONTENTS file contains corrupted data. Most likely a @pkgdep line without a package name. Could you show the output of: grep @pkgdep /var/db/pkg/acroread8-8.1.2_2/+CONTENTS -- Mel Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules and never get to the software part. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
