This was kind of an experience, as make delete-old-libs almost bricked my laptop. Apparently portupgrade failed to upgrade quite a few apps, for whatever reasons. I deleted all cached packages to make sure portupgrade -P would fetch the newest. I also had to coerce /usr/bin/objformat to return "elf" as the installed objformat prevented building many ports that could not be installed as packages. Anyway, everything seems to work ok now. thanks a lot Markus -- Markus Hoenicka markus.hoeni...@cats.de (Spam-protected email: replace the quadrupeds with "mhoenicka") http://www.mhoenicka.de _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
