Re: pkg/42607 (pkg_add hangs in ftp when there are dependencies (multiple packages))
It looks like things are not fully OK as yet!
Last night I went to do some updates to NetBSD machines like so:
o Install latest 5.1_RC1 sets (from a local build) on all
o Did pkg_rolling-replace -vu on the build box.
o Ran pkg_info -aX | gzip -c > $PKG_PATH/pkg_summary.gz
o On the target: Move /usr/sbin/pkg_add out of the way:
mv /usr/sbin/pkg_add /usr/sbin/pkg_add.old
(because it chokes on >1 package as is the reason for
o On the target: pkg_chk -bu -P $PKG_PATH
The update begins fine and starts processing all the packages. But then
I start to get ftp connection failures as in "connection refused". Even
on a manually executed "ftp -a build-machine". inetd on the ftp server
starts refusing ftp connections!
To recover, I restarted inetd on the ftp server. And did the pkg_chk -bu
-P.. and repeated several times until all packages were up-to-date.
Unfortunately, since things are acting so strangely, I can no longer
vouch for the goodness of this fix.
