I an running 4.9 the pkg_add -r command default path is /pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-4.9-release/Lastest/ All the names in that location do not have versions suffix appended to the name.
Though /pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-4.9-release/all/ does. The FBSD handbook says to use http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html To find port and package names and it only shows the names with versions suffix appended to the name. Some entries listed have package link and some don't, entries without package link still have packages. just looks like thinks are in process of changing, as if there is an project in progress, so I asked the question. Default location for pkg_add should be 'all' and not 'Latest' or 'Latest' should be populated with content of 'all' so pkg_add will function. -----Original Message----- From: Kris Kennaway [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Tuesday, December 30, 2003 9:08 AM To: fbsd_user Cc: [EMAIL PROTECTED] ORG Subject: Re: ports & package names changing?

What do you mean? Packages already include the version number in the name.
