Re: removing entries in pkgdb [solved]

You can try "pkg_admin rebuild". The manpage for pkg_admin(1) says that the "rebuild" command is intended for recovery after system crashes during package installation and removal, which sounds similar to the problem you're experiencing.

Unfortunately "pkg_admin rebuild" didn't help. But I also couldn't find firefox53 or midori on my system anymore. Turns out that there was a .conf file in /var/db/pkg, put there by pkg_chk, with a list containing ff53 and midori. I just deleted the file and the problem disappeared. Funny thing is that the file doesn't return either.
