I cvsupped July 11 and did a make buildworld, make buildkernel KERNCON=CHANGLING, reboot make installworld, mergemaster on 3 different boxes. All is/was well on 2 of the 3 boxes, but on the third any/every make install or portupgrade [filename] errors out with Error Code 1 right after make install checks for a previous installation. The option FORCE_PKG_REGISTER="yes'" allows the installation to completesuccessfully, the portupgrade -m FORCE_PKG_REGISTER="yes'" switch also succeeds. I NFS mounted /usr/ports from the broken fileserver on a laptop (4.8-STABLE from same cvs updated sources) and I can make install or portupgrade with no errors at all.


pkg_info -q -O some/port on the laptop returns the package name of the installed port

pkg_info -q -O some/port on the fileserver returns:

pkg_info: package cvsupd-bin-16.1 has no origin recorded
pkg_info: package ghostscript-6.01_1 has no origin recorded
pkg_info: /var/db/pkg/jdk-tutorial-1.1.8/+CONTENTS: No such file or directory

I found this on Google which might help:

That's easy - the packages are old enough that they didn't record
their origin.

Installing newer versions of the packages is the obvious way. You can
also go into /var/db/pkg/wterm-6.2.7a1/+CONTENTS and add a line that
says "@comment ORIGIN:x11/wterm" after the @name line. There may be
other magic required as well, but this worked for the one I did it to.
