Yes, but doing it that way as example, entering 'apache' would download apache13 when I really wanted apache20. That logic does not follow through, it's only valid for single versions of an package.

If you read http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/packages-u sing.html it says, about half way down the page: "Note that in the example above lsof is used instead of lsof-4.56.4. When the remote fetching feature is used, the version number of the package must be removed. pkg_add(1) will automatically fetch the latest version of the application." Can you give a concrete example of what the handbook says, and how following the steps causes a problem? I'm not seeing it, it's working fine for me. -- David Fleck [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
