Default vlc port failing

I am hitting this error when trying to run a make install clean:

make: don't know how to make clean-local. Stop
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.6c/bindings/java.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.6c/bindings.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/multimedia/vlc/work/vlc-0.8.6c.


I'm presuming I need to get Java installed on my system first? If so which?

Anything else I should be aware of?

You don't need java for vlc.

First, you may want to update your portstree, the version of vlc is 0.8.6f_3,2, and your version is almost a year old.

Then try running: # make clean install clean

I will do, although I think I need to investigate what has happened in my ports, there are only two entries under sysutils, which can't be right...+

Post your cvsup file, maybe you made an error there (?)

[edit]
Did you use the file I posted here?

okay, excluding all the commented stuff:

*default host=cvsup3.uk.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_7_0
*default delete use-rel-suffix
*default compress
src-all
ports-all
doc-all
www
cvsroot-all

Which I think should be okay?

Didn't have thread notification on for that other thread and missed the comments on using . instead of a particular tag.

Don't use one supfile for everything. Separate docs, source, www, and ports into their own supfiles (I like to name them /etc/supfile.source, /etc/supfile.docs, and so on).

The tags for each can be different (docs and ports use tag=. while source uses tag=RELENG_7_0 for instance).

Separating them into separate supfiles also allows you to update them separately. For instance, the ports tree changes daily but the source tree for RELENG_7_0 only changes when there are security fixes. Why run cvsup on the source tree (or docs tree) everytime you want to update the ports tree?

You also probably don't want or need www-all. That's the source for the FreeBSD website. You also probably don't want or need cvsroot-all, as that's the entire FreeBSD CVS repo.

You also don't really need a ports supfile, as portsnap is part of the base OS now, and can be a lot faster to use, and require less CPU and network bandwidth.

One last thing about this, I store my supfiles in /root however I'm not entirely comfortable with this, is /etc more suitable?

While I understand the sentiment, I've used a combined file for many, many years. The reason is simple: when I do system maintenance, I do all of it. So that means kernel/world updates, port updates and so forth. It has rarely gotten me into trouble.

Use whatever you like, it doesn't matter.
