I'm installing the appropriate goodies on a new 1.5R machine. I've run
into two problems thus far.
First, when trying to install communicator, it had problems with the
'flash' package from macromedia -- the checksum didn't match. Mind
you, I'm not sorry I don't have flash, and I'll happily install without
it, but I don't know how to override that piece of the package
Equally serious, I couldn't install tcpdump: "tcpdump-3.6.1 is not
avaialble for NetBSD-1.5R-i386". (I'm doing source installations.)
What is the problem there?
