The rest of your question has been answered, but: On Sat, 2003-11-01 at 23:00, William O'Higgins wrote: > I found that there was only on reference to the filename in the > Makefile, so I changed it, and then I generated an MD5 on the file that > I had and put it into distfile.
Instead of manually generating the MD5 and editing the distfile, you can fix the Makefile, delete the distfile, and do a "make makesum" and it will be built for you automatically. (Similarly, if for some reason the README.html has to be updated, just delete it an "make readme".) Otherwise, you're on the right track. Also, in addition to checking that nobody's already submitted this, reading the Porting handbook, and submitting your fix via send-pr, you should probably email the package maintainer directly. In fact, you might want to do this first--it's possible the maintainer is about to do this, or has already tried and run into problems that she can tell you about before you hit them, etc.--and/or maybe she knows where you can get the previous version of the tarball. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
