Best regards, Aleksey Cheusov.
System: NetBSD chen.chizhovka.net 4.0_BETA2 NetBSD 4.0_BETA2 (GENERIC) #16: Mon May 21 00:01:33 EEST 2007 email@example.com:/srv/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386
In section 6.3 of pkgsrc guide users are notified many times
that all packages will be removed during bulk build.
But actually very different things happend.
EVERYTHING is removed from /usr/pkg including ALL configuration files.
This is not equal to "all packages are removed", right?
More over, many things are also removed from /var, /home, X11BASE/share
and X11BASE/lib. There is nothing about all this in the documentation.
