I have not updated all my ports since the end of Noviember.
I am still using cvsup to update the machine daily and have, what I hope
is, an uptodate kernel and all programes.
# uname -a
FreeBSD home.encontacto.net 9.1-STABLE FreeBSD 9.1-STABLE #391 r229960M:
Sat Jan 26 05:06:18 CST 2013
root at home.encontacto.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/ENCONTACTO
The first strange thing that I notice is:
# portversion -v portmaster
[Updating the pkgdb <format:bdb_btree> in /var/db/pkg ... USING PKGNG
- 959 packages found (-2 +3) (...)... done]
portmaster-3.14_8 > succeeds port (port has 3.11)
The last thing I remember doing era updating ports to PKGNG and that could
be my problem. If so, I have no idea how to reconstruct and I'm also not
sure that cvsup is still working as before. The kernel seems to work fine.
Another error message that I find unusual and can't explain is:
# portmaster -a
===>>> Gathering distinfo list for installed ports
===>>> Starting check of installed ports for available updates
===>>> The ports-mgmt/portmanager port has been deleted: Has expired: Does
not support modern ports features such as MOVED, is lacking upstream and
active contributions, and does not support pkgng. Consider using
ports-mgmt/portmaster, ports-mgmt/portupgrade or pkgng
===>>> Aborting update
I can't understand the relationship to portupgrade.
I'm sure that I missed something very important since portmaster is trying
to use portupgrade.
Thanks for any help.
