I just installed FreeBSD from the 5.2.1 ISO. After installing the necessities, I downloaded the latest ports.tar.gz from freebsd.org, extracted the ports, and did a "make index" from the ports directory. At this point I did "make install" from x11/kde3. Since then I have installed firefox, gaim, and a few other ports. Then, I noticed that I didn't have kmail, and found that it is part of the kdepim port, so I tried installing it. At some point it requires gpg-error.1, during which I get:
===> libgcrypt-1.2.0_1 depends on shared library: gpg-error.1 - not found ===> Verifying install for gpg-error.1 in /usr/ports/security/libgpg-error ===> Vulnerability check disabled >> libgpg-error-1.0.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/. >> Attempting to fetch from ftp://gd.tuwien.ac.at/privacy/gnupg/libgpg-error/.

Trying various things, I decided to run "portsdb -Uu", and got: portsdb -Uu Updating the ports index ...

I can't seem to install any ports, and I don't know how to get my ports collection back to a usable state, or what I did to break it in the first place. Of course, I will be happy to provide any addition information. I would appreciate any help that may be offered. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
