Good day!

After I cvsup the my port (just today Feb. 13) and try to install XFree86-4 using :


$ make install

errors (below) poped up. Can you please guide me on how to fix this one, maybe I just missed something. Im using FreeBSD 4.2-stable.

thanks!

Looks like you didn't cvsup the 'base port'. Did you modify your ports-supfile?

sorry for im a newbie............. what's base port? all I did was cvsup the ports. I already have 4.2-STABLE FreeBSD.

>Did you modify your ports-supfile?
nope!

did I miss something here? below is my supfile...



thanks!

*default host=cvsup14.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
ports-all

Ummm, that's very different /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile from which uses:

*default host=CHANGE_THIS.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/usr
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
ports-all

You base is wrong.

I am also having the same problem with my ver 4.1.1
I get the same error message.
In the ports-supfile the "base" seems to have nothing to do with the problem.
I have been using base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup on 4 other FBSD boxes without drama - so it aint the base.
I have also used the 4.1 to 4-STABLE upgrade kit - still no luck
Any ideas

ok! I made it work, but I think this is not the smart way to do it, heres what I did:

I remove all files from the this directory
"base"/sup/ports-all

mine is:
/usr/local/etc/cvsup/sup/ports-all


then cvsup again, and it works....


any comments on how to do it right?


thanks
