distclean removes the distfiles for the current port. You can then re-fetch it from the ftp site, and it will hopefully not be corrupted. If you continue to get checksum errors, it can indicate that you have an out-of-date ports collection, or that you should fetch it by hand from another mirror as directed. > Also in case I get this or similar errors again is there another way to > deal with it (like being explicit about the mirror?) or maybe I'm jumping > ahead of myself here. See the variables listed in the sample make.conf file and bsd.port.mk for specifying mirror site preferences. Kris
