FreeBSD Port: phpMyAdmin-

Are you reading what I am saying in previous posts.


It is not working the way you think it should.

I am not going to waste the time or disk space to download
the complete ports framework (15000 ports x 5 config files each)
just for 5 ports.

Even making that suggestion is crazy.

Handbook does not say that selected ports and pkgs will not work
I have been mixing ports and packages since 3.0 without any

Did not have this problem in any of 3.x or 4.x versions as I ran
each one of them.

What about just recreating the php4, php5, mysql4, mysql5 and
phpmyadmin ports
config make files and packages so they work correctlly?

A fresh virgin install WILL prompt you with the OPTIONS dialog for
if you haven't already configured it. You shouldnt be just
the specific things you want/need from the ports framework. This can
cause problems with out of date dependencies and such. cvsup (or
whatever updating software you use) the entire tree and try again.
