Hi All,
I have newly installed FreeBSD, but seem to be having a problem with
pkg_add, when I use pkg_add -r then package name 
I get an error:
pkg_add -r nano
Error: FTP Unable to get
/nano.tbz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
pkg_add: unable to fetch
t/nano.tbz' by URL
but if I use pkg_add and then the url it seems to retrieve the packge
with no problems
ano-1.2.5.tbz... Done.
pkg_add: warning: package 'nano-1.2.5' requires 'gettext-0.14.5', but
'gettext-0.13.1_1' is installed
any help would be appreciated
