OpenBSD 3.6 FTP pkg_add failed...


My DSL connection failed while it's doing installation of qt3-base-x.x.tgz package (one of its dependencies). This frequently happens and I just usually reset the modem to restore the connection. But even it was restored, the installations does not continue so I just terminated it via "Ctrl-C". The system informed me of uncompleted installation with a message that said about borked.1 file in /var/db/pkg/.

When I tried to repeat the entire process, it just stopped after that same package, exits to text console and did not continue installating the package that I needed.

I'm fetching and adding the kdebase-3.2.3.tgz package.

I just downloaded qt3-base-3.2.tgz and reinstall kdebase since almost of the dependencies are already installed, it still stops and exits to console at qt3-base-3.2.tgz.

pkg_info for kdebase-3.2.3 is returned but nowhere to find startkde. It could be that the installation did not finish.

Never mind. I discovered how to solve this.

When a package did not finish, some of the installed files will collide when you do re-installations. I was able to trace the complete directory path (/usr/local/include/X11/qt3/) through its error dump. I just deleted this directory. I'm now reinstalling and it already passed through qt3-base-3.2 successfully.
