Hello pkgsrc Junkies,
On this page, http://www.netbsd.org/Documentation/pkgsrc/faq.html, it
says for non-root installs to attach the value yes to the attribute
UNPRIVELEGED but fails to mention where that attribute resides. Does it
go in /etc/mk.conf?
Generally the instructions there are too terse. I found other stuff
which was pre-bootstrap, but generally there isn't much on this topic
and my understanding of pkgsrc isn't sufficient to go hacking it just
I'm now attempting this on a Debian system as an unpriveleged user and
would've (well actually I did, but didn't get far) tried this on MacOSX
excepting for a default install of HFS+.
So how many is that this week?...:
Ubuntu (Hoary) i386
NetBSD 2.1 i386
MacOS 10.4 ppc
Debian ? (2.4.29 Linux kernel) i386
Is there any chance of pkgsrc being able to work on HFS+? Is having it
not run to do with an actual problem with case insensitivity, or is it
Well, NetBSD works anyway!... "Of course it runs on NetBSD!"? Ouch!
OK, so I suppose I'd better do something... Someone hand me something
Wasn't I going to test a fix on RHEL3 for something or other to do with
OpenSSL screwing up? I'd still really like to get this going, since I
may still be able to stop a move from a virtual server to shared hosting
if I can lighten my sysadmin load by having this baby just go.
