Hi - I've just installed 4.8 from scatch. The next thing I wanted to do
was to CVSUP so I ...
make install distclean
... that was a bit strange because cvsupit seemed to start automatically
as part of the 'make'. I wasn't watching it happen but I flicked back to
the screen and I found I was being prompted for which CVSUP server I
wanted to use.
Anyway I went along with that and allowed the CVSUP session to start and
and all seemed to go well, I ended up with a "All finished! ... blah,
blah" dialog box (not a real dialog I was running this from the command
However when I then pressed Enter on that dialog box (to go back to the
prompt) I get ...
===> Generating temporary packing list
** Missing package files for cvsupit-3.1.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/net/cvsupit.
... that doesn't look too good and yet the CVSUP session appears to have
all gone fine - can anyone explain what's happening ?
