It could be a problem with the DBDriver. You could try this: Edit /root/.cs... and add PORTS_DBDRIVER=bdb1_hash PKG_DBDRIVER=bdb1_hash Then execute this in your shell also. Then do: pkgdb -u && portsdb -u && portupgrade -R gnucash -- Alex Articles based on solutions that I use: http://www.kruijff.org/alex/FreeBSD/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
