When I try to install the multimedia/handbrake port, I get the following
===> Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
=> HandBrake-0.6.2-src.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in
=> Attempting to fetch from http://people.via.ecp.fr/~titer/handbrake/.
=> Attempting to fetch from
File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
=> Couldn't fetch it - please try to retrieve this
=> port manually into /usr/ports/distfiles/ and try again.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/handbrake.
When I go to the URL, I find that the only version available is 0.7.1,
which was apparently released 2/24/2006. The earlier version is
probably available through some sort of source control, but I wasn't
smart enough to figure out what/where/how.
Being new to FreeBSD, I don't know the proper procedure in this case.
Should I report this to someone? Or is taken care of in some other
way? Or is this the wrong forum?
Can I just manually edit the port Makefile and distinfo file to have the
correct version/size/MD5 etc? Or is this too simplistic a fix that will
screw up other things?
Thanks for your support
