I'm in the midst of upgrading my i386 system
from NetBSD 1.5 to 2.0. At the system level things
seem to be going well.
WRT packages, I had been hacking buildlink files to
keep packages from being "needlessly" updated.
Now I'm trying to make a fresh start. I have some questions:
1) native pthread: should I take this opportunity to remove
any pthread packages and rebuild packages with the system/native
/usr/lib/libpthread? Or is there still a role for the package
2) how do /usr/lib/libintl and the gettext-lib package work
together? Often I get link results such as:
/usr/bin/ld: warning: libz.so.0, needed by /usr/pkg/lib/libgnomeui.so,
may conflict with libz.so.1
/usr/bin/ld: warning: libintl.so.0, needed by
/usr/pkg/lib/libgnomeui.so, may conflict with libintl.so.2
(same question for zlib I guess)
Is this the expected result, or is there a better solution?
3) I'm trying to use /usr/pkgsrc "-current" I guess, rather than
one of the quarterly freezes. Is there a branch of the package
system I should try to use in outfitting a newly updated 2.0 system?
Thanks for your time....
