asking - both of these are broken in some way. Reposting:
For example if i try to run "portversion" i get:
undefined method `each' for nil:NilClass
/usr/local/sbin/portversion:239: [BUG] Bus Error
from Ruby (ruby 1.8.5 is up to date on the system).
If i try to run "pkg_info" I quickly get:
pkg_info: read_plist: bad command '@conflicts apache+ipv6-1.*'
(i googled for similar problems and there were a few other reports
of this, with other packages, but no suggestion of how to fix them.)
I manually updated Ruby and portupgrade (by updating my ports
tree and going into their /usr/ports directories and doing make install)
with no change.
This is what i am trying to solve.
