I've got a NetBSD 1.5.2 installation (Probably be going to 1.6.1
before too long).
I was wondering... how do I tell what versions of software I have
installed in my
default 1.5.2 installation? Is this documented anywhere?
Assume what's in my default install in /usr/bin is old (probably).
I've put in a newer one via pkgsrc in /usr/pkg/bin.
If I update to 1.6.1, how do I determine which one is newer?
If the 1.6.1 default program is newer, must I delete the one
installed via pkgsrc?
Not a problem for 1 or 2 packages, but on a fresh install, that's a
What's the best way to handle this?
