Re: deleting apparently phantom package
/ah, you got it in one. Packages installed up to 15th February are
recorded in /var/db/pkg, those from 18th February in /usr/pkg/pkgdb.
What I did in between was to upgrade the machine from NetBSD-7.0 to
9.2. The digest package is recorded in both, though different
But another machine I upgraded, this time from 8.0_RC1 to 9.2, has
all its packages recorded in /var/db/pkg.
How should I proceed?
