I am new to the linux-type OS environment. For about a week now I have
tried to do a task which I first thought would be simple-install a
program like firefox.
I did "sudo pkg_add -r firefox" as explained in chapter 4 of the
handbook and received the message:
pkg_add: package 'firefox-22.214.171.124,1' or its older version already
I then tried to uninstall firefox like this:
sudo pkg_delete -d -f firefox-126.96.36.199,1
It appeard to uninstall.
I next did "sudo pkg_add -r firefox" again and it did this:
> ===> Building Chrome's registry...
> SMB issues:
> Network group, machine, and share browsing does not work correctly.
> Only sftp access using public key authentication works. To easily
> setup public key authentication to "remote_host":
> ssh-keygen -t dsa
> cat ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub | ssh remote_host "cat >> .ssh/authorized_keys"
> The SSH sever on remote_host must allow pub key authentication.
Firefox now does not work at all and if I rerun the pkg_add command it
states firefox-188.8.131.52 is still installed.
Isn't the latest 184.108.40.206?
I tried to instructions at firefox and they did not work:
