Yes, it is a i386 system.
I am just wondering, is there any way to
pkg_add -r libreoffice
and ask to restore (download/install) all its dependencies (that is, the old
deps that were there prior to ports updates that replaced them with newer
Actually, I read the PKG_ADD(1) and see this:
3. Scan all the package dependencies (from @pkgdep directives, see
pkg_create(1)) are read from the packing list. If any of these
required packages is not currently installed, an attempt is made to
find and install it; if the missing package cannot be found or
installed, the installation is terminated.
Is this not what I want it to do ? These old deps (packages) should be still
available - I am still on FB 9.0 and its original repo.
Or can I request the same (old package with old deps) with portmaster ?
portmaster <some options> libreoffice
