This is my first post to this list, so I hope I get it right. I'm new to
both Unix and freeBSD and I've been doing my first steps for three days
now. I was able to install Java and Tomcat 6, because these products are
part of the ports directory. However I'd prefer Tomcat 7, so I got the
tomcat7.tar.gz and extracted the files to /usr/ports/www/tomcat7.
The I tried the following and got the message:
# make install clean
===> Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
===> License accepted by the user
=> apache-tomcat-7.0.6.tar.gz is not in /usr/ports/www/tomcat7/distinfo.
=> Either /usr/ports/www/tomcat7/distinfo is out of date, or
=> apache-tomcat-7.0.6.tar.gz is spelled incorrectly.
*** Error code 1
Stop in /usr/ports/www/tomcat7.
To be honest, I don't understand that message. That file
apache-tomcat-7.0.6.tar.gz can't be in /usr/ports/www/tomcat7/distinfo,
because distinfo is a file and not a directory. What went wrong? I got
the missing file, however where is it supposed to be?
Thanks for help,
