In our last episode,
<trOpd.13873$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,
the lovely and talented Doug
broadcast on comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc:
It can't get the distribution file. The part of this
message you clipped from top probably told you where
the file is supposed to be. You can try again later -
maybe the reason you couldn't get was that the ftp
servers were overloaded. Otherwise, change directories
to /usr/ports/distfiles and try to ftp the distribution
file into it. Then try it again.
You might want to try making it in devel/fam to
avoid spacing through a bunch of stuff in case
it takes several tries.
Note: kde is a pseudoport (ok, ok, "metaport").
All it does is cause other ports to be built.
That means you don't have to rebuild all the
stuff that came before this when you restart kde.
Indeed, you can, and probably ought to make clean
be for you start the kde make again.
It will go through what it thinks are its dependencies
(which is the trick to making it build all the real
ports), and skip the ones that are already installed.
