cannot install samba for file sharing with vmware host.

Anyone sheds some lights on this?

Also, I have one more question to ask
How do you install pico on FreeBSD 9?
1) I downloaded the package called pico-alpine-2.00_1.tbz
2) use pkg_add pico-alpine-2.00_1.tbz. That requires aspell-0.60.6.1
3) I pkg_add -r aspell, it says
4) pkg_add: can't stat package file 'aspell-0.60.6.1'
Thanks
Jack

Hello,

You have a conflict between pkgconf and pkg-config according to your screenshot. Resolve that issue first before trying again by uninstalling one (or both). Since the required package will be installed as dependency for tdb that should solve your problem unless there is another issue at hand. Take it step by step.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

are you doing this on a FreeBSD machine? If so, you may be more likely to get help on a BSD formum.

Eg .http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/%2Absd-17/

If I'm completely wrong and it is actually a linux install, I would help greatly to know what distribution you are using.

Hi Eric,
is it true that pkgconf or pkg-config package is used for the command pkg_add?
Would that be dangerous to remove one or both of them?
Thanks

Hi,

As you edited your original post indicating the distribution you're using I think, like pointed out by evo2, that you might have better luck in the BSD forums. Ask a moderator to move your thread there (click the Report button on your post). Since I'm not acquainted with BSD/FreeBSD I don't think I can be very helpful because of the differences between Linux and BSD.

Kind regards,

Eric
