Default Error trying to install VMwareGuest from system packages
I update to 9.0 RC-3. This is a VM so I try to install VMwareGuest in PC-BSD system configuration. Each time I have the following message:
Code:
The meta-pkg manager returned an error. For more details please look at the log file: /tmp/.pc-metapkgmanager.log
Here is the log:
Code:
Installing package: open-vm-tools-425873

Look like it can find the package required?

Looks like your mirror URL is invalid.. Please go to Control Panel ->
system manager -> Mirror and change it to another and try again

doesn't do any difference. I try 6 or 7 mirrors and I always have the same error message. Same thing when I try to install samba.

Found the bug and issued an online update to fix it. Please install it
first and then it should allow you to install system packages again

Just do a refresh of check for updates.

P.S. TY Kris for the fix, it was a problem with me, too, regardless of mirror.

Unhappy Still a problem...
I have an up to date install of PCBSD (9.0-Release #3) and I'm currently experiencing this same issue, none of the mirrors are working and the error log contains the same messages as in the first post... want to install MythTV

Update: My install of the latest PCBSD is from an upgrade of RC-2, looks like when I try to install System Packages it is still looking for the "9.0-RC2" path in the mirror but this no longer exists, there is only a "9.0" path now. Any tips on how to correct this???
