Some packages are broken

March 12th, 2008 by Chris Buechler

FreeBSD removed 6.2 packages from all their mirrors, which broke a few of our packages. I fixed as many as I could with files we already had, or that I could still find, but some are still not working. We’ll have to build these packages ourselves, and it’ll be this weekend before anyone will have time to do so.

Going forward we are only going to use package files from our servers so we don’t get bitten by similar situations in the future.

    Thanks Paul M!! I’ll fix the remaining packages this evening. I was hopeful somebody would find a mirror that still had the files. :) I checked about 10 different ones and tried Google a bit, but didn’t have any luck.
