No idea what "erc's on a.out" is supposed to mean.Quote:>It appears that were I installing to separate partitions on

You should set any CD mounts in /etc/fstab to "noauto", in caseQuote:>Now.....

there's no CD in the drive at boot time.

Or, if you have an entry in /etc/fstab, it's as simple as:
I assume you're trying to install via the ports collection?Quote:>FINALLY

Apparently, your local ports collection is out of date (at
least as far as this particular package is concerned).
Install the cvsup-bin port, do a "make update" in /usr/ports
(set the name of the ports supfile in /etc/make.conf), and
try it again.
Or are you trying to install this by hand? If so, why?
