I now went to the linux-sun-jdk tree did a make clean and was going

The above shows that linux_base-7.1_5 is installed. BUT
a make-clean shows that it was cleaning for linux_base_7.1_7.
Nothing to worry about there. That just probably means you installed
linux_base back when it was 7.1_5 (before early Feb or so). But you
have since updated your ports tree, and now linux_base is 7.1_7. So
when linux-sun-jdk goes to do a make clean on the dependencies, it
says it's cleaning the work dirs for 7.1-7.
You could use portupgrade (as you did) to update your linux_base if
you want (or deinstall, then make install again) and you will get the
So just now tried a portupgrade and to get to the 7.1_7 version.
It went along for awhile, started installing and then
I see I get a failure with an excution failed on
the script glib-2.2.4-33.
You didn't say what the failure was, but obviously installing 7.1_7
works okay here.
That confirms that. I have vision problems so I normally don't run
Xfree but live almost exclusively in a 80x24 test workd.
You may not use it, but it's possible other ports want X in order to
So did you ktrace that last bit (probably the install.sfx is a linux
app... use file to tell)?
I did not use ktrace, and I'm not really a programmer - been more
of a syadmin and fixer for a long time.
ktrace is a valuable tool for a sysadmin and it's easy to use.
And it's useful when reporting problems on mailing lists ;)
So - before I continue on I'm going to try to upgrade the glibc.
