Hi list,

I want to update my pkgsrc-prefix on solaris 10 form 2009Q4 to 2010Q1.
I did "-bash-3.00# cvs update -dP -rpkgsrc-2010Q1" in my pkgsrc-dir
and then "pkg_rolling-replace -uv". But it fails by updating
bootstrap-mk-files-20090807 to bootstrap-mk-files-20090807nb1 with:

===> Deinstalling for bootstrap-mk-files-20090807nb1

All of the mentiont methods fail with the same error. I also tried to
use "pkg_delete -f", but the same. Who to handle this?

You can delete it with pkg_delete -ff, but after removal of it,
you can do nothing about pkgsrc based operation.

You need to do binary package based operation to update such packages.
For instance, set USE_DESTDIR=yes and do "make replace".
