14.2. Setting PACKAGESITE

The packages-5.0-release directory has gone from the FTP servers, you need to make pkg_add look in the packages-5-current directory. You do that by setting PACKAGESITE in your environment.

For the tcsh shell:

# setenv PACKAGESITEftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-5-current/All

For the sh and bash shells:

# setenv PACKAGESITE=ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-5-current/All ; export PACKAGESITE
