Packages missing?

Postby roso » Fri Sep 12, 2014 5:41 pm

Hi mates!

Here's a quick one: why is it that "pkg search dmd2" gives a result on PC-BSD and not on GhostBSD-RC2?
I should have my repos up to day and stuff, but no luck.

Cheers!

Can you give us the output. GhostBSD use FreeBSD repos and PCBSD have their own repos.

There is no output :S
The fact that both have different repos could explain this, but this package I was looking for does appear in all databases I know of (freebsd ports & freshports).

Anyway, I'll try again once the Gold comes out. I heard 10.1 will come with packages updates...maybe mine will be among them.

Cheers & and keep the good work!

Pkgng have the latest pkg that is build from ports.

Try:
Code: Select all
sudo update -f

also:
Code: Select all
pkg search dmd2

it should work

I have no update executable, I assume there is a typo somewhere.
If you meant pkg update -f nothing changed, still can't find my package.

Well, if you tell me you get a match, then it's fine for me! I trust your word. It won't change my opinion about GBSD in anyway :)
So no worries Eric, I'll manage somehow once we get to see the 4.0.

Cheers

I have try myself to install it and I have this
Code: Select all
ericbsd@ericbsd /u/h/ericbsd> sudo pkg install dmd2
Password:
Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
FreeBSD repository is up-to-date.
All repositories are up-to-date.
pkg: No packages available to install matching 'dmd2' have been found in the repositories
ericbsd@ericbsd /u/h/ericbsd>


You can install from ports.

Code: Select all
sudo portsnap fetch extract
cd /usr/ports/lang/dmd2
sudo make install clean
