Re: inconsistent pkgdb during upgrade

pkg_info dies with the same error:
pkg_info: cannot read meta data file +COMMENT of package suse_x11-11.3:
No such file or directory
grid$ sudo pkg_admin rebuild
pkg_admin: suse_x11-11.3: can't open `+CONTENTS'
how can I fix that?
Can you check existence of /var/db/pkg/suse_x11-11.3/?
Files like +COMMENT or +CONTENTS are placed here.
These files are used by pkg_info.
If some are missing, pkg_info will fail.
grid# ls /var/db/pkg/suse_x11-11.3/
well, the problem is that the directory doesn't contain makefile
anymore. I suppose it got removed upstream or something like that?
BTW, I believe that you have already tried simply ``make deinstall''.
grid# cd /usr/pkgsrc/emulators/suse113_x11/
"cvs update" doesn't retrieve the makefile.
I suppose that the suse_x11-11.3 package directory is "spurious" because
of the core file, so it could not have been deleted during uninstall. I
thus removed it. I applied this cure also for other suse_* packages,
which all contained only core files.
finally pkg_info runs again. I will resume the update I was performing
on xulrunner and hope that it will work fine now :) Crossing fingers!
I will then update to the newer packages and check linux compatibility
