confusion with pkg_chk -N
I've just run pkg_chk -N and received the following output.
rsync: rsync-3.0.0 (probably better to wait for at least 3.0.1)
There are a few things I expect to appear in the above list and a few
things I don't.
calculon:~> pkg_info -e wget
calculon:~> pkg_info -e python24
my PKGSRCDIR=/usr/2008Q1 and the system is NetBSD-4 running mostly
2007Q4 packages (with some exceptions where updates to 2008Q1
packages have already been done).
I was hoping this would answer the question of "what packages have i
got installed that are from 2007Q4 that have an equivalent or newer
version in 2008Q1?". So that I could finish updating the rest and
discard any 2007Q4 things I've been keeping.
the /usr/2008Q1/doc/TODO lists wget-1.11, python24-2.4.5 but if I
already have these versions installed why is pkg_chk -N telling me
they are candidates for update?
I'm probably just not understanding what the tool is supposed to do
could someone please educate me. Or if there is a better way to do
what I'm trying to do I'm happy to hear it.
