pkg_rolling-replace and removed or renamed packages
Now another series of snags in pkg_rolling-replace results from packages being
renamed or removed.
pkg_rolling-replace is stopped with error message about not being able to cd to
This also happened with xclock being moved from x11 to time.
I looked in pkgsrc/doc/CHANGES-2013 and noticed packages that were removed,
added, moved, renamed or updated.
In the case of removed packages, I rerun pkg_rolling-replace with -x
In the case of xclock, I could only go into time/xclock directory, make build,
pkg_delete -f xclock
and then resume pkg_rolling-replace.
Is there a better, more correct way?
In the FreeBSD ports tree, there is a file UPDATING in the main directory that
warns about packages that are removed, moved or renamed, and what to do using
portmaster or portupgrade.
Am I missing something in pkgsrc that is not so well documented?
