According to the CVS logs, cvsupit was removed on May 6 of this year: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/net/cvsupit/Attic/ > I may use something else > in the future as you suggest but what I'm interested in initially is > does this message ... > > ===> Generating temporary packing list > ** Missing package files for cvsupit-3.1. > *** Error code 1 > > ... mean the machine is in a good state or a bad state (.. ah, the > eternal question :-) Hm, I would say a bad state, but not *very* bad. Looks like cvsupit is partially installed? You might be able to fix it up by running pkg_delete cvsupit-3.1 which should delete any files that were installed by the cvsupit package (and possibly give you some warnings when trying to delete ones that weren't.) -Chris _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
