System: NetBSD jade.coe.psu.ac.th 3.99.15 NetBSD 3.99.15 (GENERIC-1.696-20060125) #8: Wed Jan 25 04:59:39 ICT 2006 firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr/obj/current/kernels/JADE_ASUS i386
The distfile expected by the distinfo file for games/pytraffic
is not the distfile available at the MASTER_SITE, nor is it the
one available at ftp.netbsd.org (the latter two are probably the
same, but I have not confirmed that).
mv ..../distfiles/pytraffic-2.5.4.tar.gz /somewhere/else
Find out what changed between when the package was updated
(when the distfile file used to make the distinfo file that
was included in kgsrc was obtained) and now (and for that
matter, within a half day of when the pkgsrc entry was
updated - that will be when I first fetched the "incorrect"
distfile - just been slow sending the PR...)
If the change is benign, update distinfo - if we're supposed
to be using the distfile expcted by the distinfo file, then
make it available somewhere (ftp.netbsd.org probably) and update
the MASTER_SITES so only that one is fetched.
Since the MASTER_SITE copy seems to have been changed before the
pkgsrc entry was updated, I don't think it is possible for
anyone using pkgsrc in the normal way to possibly have the
"old" distfile (assuming there was an old one, and the problem
here isn't something else), so I don't think a DIST_SUBDIR
entry is needed for this fix.
