I keep getting errors in trying to install packages and ports.
As an example when I try to get linuxpluginwrapper in ports I see it trying to
fetch some items and not finding them. It seems like it trys in several
places (but I'm not sure if it's just going on to the next item). It finally
ends up with an automake not the right version error.
what I did was
cd /usr/ports/www/linuxpluginwrapper && make install clean
So next I tried to get it as a package:
pkg_add -r linuxpluginwrapper
This retreived several packages successfully but failed at 6 of them.
This same scenario has happened to 2 other packages I've tried to receive.
I'm pretty sure I have a good internet connection as I have downloaded several
other multi MB items through http.
Am I just having bad luck with servers being down or am I doing something
wrong? Is it unusual that some componants of ports and packages are not
Also, where did the ones that were fetched go? Do I need to remove them, will
they be overwritten if I try again later and there are new ones available?
