Re: pkg_add NetBSD/i386 5.1 packages binaries fails
I've had the same problem with NetBSD 5.1/amd64. I don't understand why there
is a 5.1 release but not a matching set of packages but I do understand that
the 5.0.2 package binaries will work. But it is what it is and I'm not trying
to start an argument or flame-war here.
From what I've found out, there are two versions of the pkg_add utility; one
that comes distributed with the NetBSD system (/usr/sbin/pkg_add) and one that
gets built with the packages (/usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_add). Using the one from the
package build gets around this problem, at least it does for me - and I'm not
sure if this is really the correct solution, but it seems to work. I think I
tried putting /usr/pkg/sbin ahead of /usr/sbin in my PATH but that didn't seem
to fix things, but I probably screwed it up when I did it.
Anyway, try doing "/usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_add <package>" and see if that works and
solves your problem.
