I'm a struggling nooby. I am trying to install firefox 4 on a fresh
8.2 installation. I want to the core system to track the "errata"
branch, and get binary packages from 8-stable (which has firefox 4).
I installed FreeBSD 8.2 release.
# freebsd-update fetch install
# portsnap fetch extract
use BASH shell
# export PACKAGESITE="ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-8-stable/Latest/"
installed x11 and icewm
# pkg_add -r firefox
get perl conflict between 5.10 and 5.12
# pkg_add -fr firefox
firefox installs but I get "firefox3" instead of firefox 4.0
# pkg_info| grep firefox
trying to use source
# cd /usr/ports/www/firefox
# make install clean
get errors about firefox 4.0.1 needing nspr>=4.8.7
# pkg_add -r nspr
says nspr-4.8.6 or older is already installed
