  • why all weird stuffs happens to me  ???

    what might cause this?
    how to fix it?

    tnx&rgds,
    rex



  • my first post was wrong.

    it's not the cvs_sync cause it.
    even before cvs_sync, the pkg info already corrupt.

    so, even a beta4 clean install from livecd already give that pkg info corrupt.
    (in my installation)

    i think may be it's corrupted iso that i download,
    so i download once again.
    make sure md5 correct.
    burn and verify the cd burn correctly using nero express.

    then, do a clean install again.
    still, the pkg info gives same error.

    didnt happen before b4.
    even b3 that's upgraded (from web gui) to b4 didnt give this error.

    rgds,

  • i tried beta4 and rc1 clean install on two totally different computers.
    (.iso file checked for correct md5 checksum)

    both pc give the same pkg_info corrupt.

    any idea?

    tnx
    rex



  • None at all, sorry.  I have yet to see this problem manifest.



  • i'm trying out pfsense rc2 today and i also encountered that very same errors when i ran pkg_info, is the iso i downloaded corrupt?  do i need to cvsup just like in a regular freebsd box? is there already a ports-supfile somewhere?

    TIA



  • Did you actually install the ISO?  There are no ports files, the packages system uses binary packages.

    And cvs_sync.sh has been disabled so you really should start a different thread as this is no longer related.
