Default Can't use ports
I downloaded the ports archive from freebsd.org
portsnap fetch gives the error:

Looking up portsnap.FreeBSD.org mirrors... 3 mirrors found.
Fetching public key from portsnap1.FreeBSD.org... failed.
Fetching public key from portsnap2.FreeBSD.org... ^[.failed.
Fetching public key from portsnap4.FreeBSD.org... failed.
No mirrors remaining, giving up.

So I extracted the rachive manually.
Then I tried to install rpm5. Ran command make:

"/usr/share/mk/bsd.port.mk", line 7: Could not find /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk
"Makefile", line 108: Malformed conditional (${ARCH} == "amd64")
"Makefile", line 110: if-less endif
"/usr/share/mk/bsd.port.mk", line 7: Could not find /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

What do I do?

Default Re: Can't use ports
Have you tried using the START -> SETTINGS -> SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION -> System Manager?
It will ask you for the root password, then select the "Tasks" tab. Click "Fetch Ports"?

If it DOES work this way - don't "Fetch System Source" unless you really need to.
