Re: How to update pkg_install package?

Thank you for your help.

I learned that installing some packages like 'pkg_install' requires c areful procedures.

Best Regards.

Does anyone know how to update pkg_install package?

Yes, just like any other package, by using the sensible way.

1.) Build a binary package without touching the existing package:

        cd pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install
        make USE_DESTDIR=yes package && make clean

2.) Use "pkg_add -u" to install the new binary package.

        Kind regards
