Issue #2730 has been updated by masu.

OK, this is intentional and not a bug. Thanks for clarifying.

It would be nice to add a few sentences to the handbook expaining what to do in these cases since it is kind of surprising for new users not being able to install packages "out of the box".

Please tell me if I can volunteer.


Bug #2730: missing ABI 4.2 package versions in repos

* Author: masu
* Status: New
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: 
* Target version: 

I have installed dfly 4.0.0RC (x86_64), enabled pkg mirror Schlundtech in df-latest.conf and tried to do a "pkg update" resulting in an error on missing files (meta.txz and digests.txz).

This is due to a wrong definition of ${ABI} in df-latest.conf which is set to 'dragonfly:4.2:x86:64'.
This directory does not exists on the pkg mirrors the latest is 'dragonfly:4.0:x86:64'.

Do I miss a step for an initial pkg repo fetch?

This issue remains after upgrading the machine to CURRENT.

Is it ok to set ${ABI} to 'dragonfly:4.0:x86:64' in pkg.conf in the meantime or will this be corrected shortly?
