  1. Problem installing pkg_get

    Hi all,

    I want to install pkg_get from blastwave.
    I have done what is suggested:

    # pkgadd -d http://www.blastwave.org/pkg_get.pkg


    ## Downloading...
    ...............25%..............50%..............7 5%..............100%
    ## Download Complete


    The following packages are available:
    1 CSWpkgget pkg_get - CSW version of automated package download tool
    (all) 3.8.1

    Select package(s) you wish to process (or 'all' to process
    all packages). (default: all) [?,??,q]:

    Processing package instance from


    pkg_get - CSW version of automated package download tool(all) 3.8.1

    Dont forget to update /opt/csw/etc/pkg-get.conf with your nearest
    archive site.
    (or /etc/opt/csw/pkg-get.conf)

    Dont stick with the default of ibiblio.org: it's very slow!

    Using as the package base directory.

    Nothing seems to be installed.
    /opt/csw is empty !

    Any ideas are welcomed. Thanks,

    Olivier

    There is a lock problem.
    I have try to remove lock files:

    # find /var/sadm/install
    /var/sadm/install
    /var/sadm/install/admin
    /var/sadm/install/admin/default
    /var/sadm/install/core
    /var/sadm/install/.lockfile
    /var/sadm/install/logs
    /var/sadm/install/logs/gui-install_log
    /var/sadm/install/logs/transfer.log
    /var/sadm/install/logs/install_log
    /var/sadm/install/gz-only-packages
    /var/sadm/install/.pkg.lock
    /var/sadm/install/contents

    rm /var/sadm/install/.lockfile
    rm /var/sadm/install/.pkg.lock

    The lock warning disapears but the package is not installed and new lock
    files appear ...
    :-(
