FreeBSD Ports Problem
I'm having a problem installing a ports package. When I try to install mysql40-server for example I get the following error message:
>> mysql-4.0.21.tar.gz doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.
>> Attempting to fetch from ftp://planetmirror.com/pub/mysql/Downloads/MySQL-4.0/.
fetch: ftp://planetmirror.com/pub/mysql/Dow...4.0.21.tar.gz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
This error message shows for all mirrors. It looks like it is searching for an old port and is not able to find it?
Does anybody have any idea how this can be fixed? Does it require a ports upgrade.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
you should upgrade your ports. That is old. I generally just
rm -rf /usr/ports
tar -zxf ports.tar.gz
rm -f ports.tar.gz
for a quick and easy upgrade
make install clean
Put this in a text file:
*default release=cvs tag=.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
That will sync your ports tree to the latest available from any cvsup server.
usually just replacing it with the tarball is faster
Even easier: Use portsnap. :-)
