a strange package problem .. bash @name ..
Hi everyone !
Sorry to annoy you again with such newbie eccentricities ..
I did a pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/* before moving to an upgrade .. but to my surprise, a bash-related error prevented other packages from being removed .. the message I got was that bash @name exists but plist is empty .. I played with a few pkg_delete options but can't neither delete nor reinstall ........
so how can I force removal or solve the issue ?
Thank you for your help ! !
ps. I forgot to chsh -s ksh .. so I did the pkg_delete /var/db/pkg/* from bash .. could this be the source of the problem ?
