I am trying to get Linux-RealPlayer to install from updated ports collection on a FreeBSD 9 desktop box. (Xorg and www etc all installed fine on this test box.)

Error says it cannot be found in our ports collection. Is there a way to locate the maintainer? This port is missing some components. Or can it be down loaded into distfiles? If so from where?

Or has this been replaced by something else to play audio in ports. I would be glad to try any port for playing audio from web or files that is known to work.



on my box.

I guess you're using portupgrade; sometimes it can't find ports
without using wildcards.


Yes Frank,

That's what should work. But it doesnt. There is a false old version in the port on the server. This is apparently a known issue as there are two (2) PR's with this issue reported in the last few days.

If someone on our list knows the maintainer I think it could be corrected easily. It may be an upgrade that failed to take as the two versions are 2004 and 2007 is what I think should be there now.
