I see. In the default /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf, there is a sample line (not commented out) that places any port that matches the glob bsdpan-* in HOLD_PKGS, meaning that portupgrade will refuse to handle it. Presumably this is so users can manage their own local tree of Perl ports that aren't in the regular ports tree. I don't do this, so I'm not familiar with how the two interact. But portupgrade seems to have done the right thing here: in the snippet you gave us, it ignored bsdpan-Acme-Damn and proceeded to begin building ffmpeg after updating libtheora -- the only problem seems to be that in the intermediate summary it lists ffmpeg, erroneously, as having been skipped -- but that seems to just be a cosmetic problem, because it then proceeds to start updating it. If later on it refuses to update it, then you've got a problem. In that case, you should try running pkgdb -L pkgdb -F to make sure that your pkgdb is in good shape, and then try your updates again. You might also try instead something like: portupgrade -ax bsdpan-* If that doesn't work, then you may either have to rip out your bsdpan-* ports, or just use a another tool for updating -- portmaster, for example. Or you can roll your own. b. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
