Definitely one now, and I am 99.9% sure that was already true. > (b) Is the file database consistent as well (pkg_admin rebuild)? After the problem, I turned PKG_DEVELOPER off and then ran pkg_rr, which replaced 282 packages (including kermit). I probably also updated mk and pkgtools Now, make replace of kermit works fine. I posted because the error message was odd; the PLIST will of course overlap the previous version. But I have found an old binary package on my box of nb3, so maybe I had nb2 and nb3 both. In that case it would be nice for pkg_add to notice multiple "pkg to be replaced" values and complain about that.
