Hi all,

I have
- a fresh install of NetBSD 1.5.
- dowloaded pkgsrc.tar.gz a couple of hours ago.
- followed the email traffic about the pkg_install issue.
- tried to update pkg_install
it seems to have downloaded the new version:
250 CWD command successful.

Your package tools need to be updated to 2001/03/06 versions.
The installed package tools were last updated on 2001/03/02.
Please make and install the pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_install package.
*** Error code 1

but still I have the problem.

Any help appreciated


PS: this is my very first NetBSD install ;-)
