Various reasons. I could post the full list at the end if you'd like (I saved it). Most are skipped (*) due to dependencies on the ones that failed (!). For the failed ones, I got assorted errors: "unknown build error", "install error", "checksum mismatch", "linker error", "new compiler error", "missing header". The ones marked ! failed isn't so large I couldn't investigate/fix each individually, but I'm trying to figure out the best way to deal with the full list of failed/skipped so that once I fix the reason for the failures, I can JUST rebuild those in the failed/skipped list and in the proper order, instead of having to rebuild my entire (400+) ports list again w/ -Raf, most of which compiled fine under 5.2. Hopefully I'm making sense... :) _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
