Do you already have 5.2 installed and are going back into sysinstall, or are you installing 5.2 and trying to add the package at the same time? Also, is this really 5.2 or is it 5.2.1? In any case, it may be looking for a version of the package which no longer exists. You can add the latest packages (after installation) using pkg_add (and fetch them remotely using pkg_add -r. See 'man pkg_add'). > My questions are: > > 1) What is error code 1? It really means nothing by itself; we need the real error to see what the problem is.

If you're installing, you can see more info by looking at the second virtual terminal (alt-F2). -David -- +++ Divide By Cucumber Error.
