The files ending in the ".sample" extension are ignored; pkg(8) only reads files that end in ".conf" and it will read as many as it finds.The default is to use the California-based Avalon, which is also the master.Now everything except package needs to be removed off the system.
Free BSD has since removed their legacy tools so pkg(8) is exclusively used by Free BSD as well.
pkg(8) is not a replacement for port management tools like can install third-party software from both binary packages and DPorts, pkg(8) installs only binary packages.
using poudriere) which should have a higher priority over the official packages. The last output of "pkg -vv" lists all enable repositories and their priority values. done # pkg info ca_root_nss-3.13.5 The root certificate bundle from the Mozilla Project curl-7.24.0 Non-interactive tool to get files from FTP, GOPHER, HTTP(S) servers pkg-1.0.12 New generation package manager .
In other words, whenever a package has been built locally, pkg(8) installs the local version and only uses the external repository to install packages not available locally. Before using, consult the man page (# pkg install curl Updating repository catalogue Repository catalogue is up-to-date, no need to fetch fresh copy The following packages will be installed: Installing ca_root_nss: 3.13.5 Installing curl: 7.24.0 The installation will require 4 MB more space 1 MB to be downloaded Proceed with installing packages [y/N]: y ca_root_nss-3.13.5100% 255KB 255.1KB/s 255.1KB/s curl-7.24.0100% 1108KB 1.1MB/s 1.1MB/s Checking integrity... If a local ports tree does not exist, pkg-version(8) will use the remote repository catalogue, otherwise the local ports tree will be used to identify package versions.
DPorts is Dragon Fly's own third-party software build system. Differences between ports and DPorts are intentionally kept to a minimum, both to maintain familiarity for mutual users of both operating systems and also to leverage the tremendous amount of work the Free BSD contributors put into ports.
DPorts can and does feature ports unique to Dragon Fly, so it's truly a native system.
In the above case, a custom repository configuration file should be created, and it should include the "priority" field, e.g. Packages can be upgraded to newer versions with pkg(8). The local package can be upgraded to the new version: : When changing package origins, in most cases it is important to reinstall packages that are dependent on the package that has had the origin changed.
To force a reinstallation of dependent packages, type: Several people have run into problem upgrading binary packages when default versions change (e.g.
Common reasons to build from source are: Dragon Fly 3.4 or later is the minimum version that can build DPorts from source.
