Hello all, I was trying to compile xscreensaver by the source tree, but I get this error:
pkg_add: A different version of libxml2-2.9.10nb4 is already installed: libxml2-2.9.10nb3.
And it stops. How can i fix this?
netbsdnoob you might need to replace old version with new one using make replace
netbsdnoob A different version of libxml2-2.9.10nb4 is already installed: libxml2-2.9.10nb3.
Use the same branch of pkgsrc as the one the pre-compiled binaries were built from.
Jay using make replace
Be carefull with it,
The make replace target should only be used by those who understand that there may be ABI issues and can deal with fixing the resulting problems.
I think in this case, you can safely uninstall libxml2 and then continue.
dressupgeekout If i try to uninstall it, it tells it is going to uninstll like 1GB of packages depending on that... i am scared.
Jay so basically i go in the libxml port and just do:
make replace clean cleandepends
Is this right ?
