Default Missing packages in i386 7.1

Hi,

I installed NetBSD 7.0.2 i386 some time ago and added xfce4 firefox and several other programs via pkgin.

Last week I tried to install a new 7.1.1 and found that many packages (xfce4, firefox, etc.) missing in ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/pack...D/i386/7.1/All .

Why are they missing and can I get the somewhere else?

Thanks
Marcus

It's early days for 7.1, not all packages are built for all architectures yet, There do appear to be Xfce4 and firefox packages for amd64.

So I should be patient that the packages will appear later and use 7.0_2017Q2 instead? Which is the newest containing the packages I need.

I noticed that In 7.0 they are also missing. 7.0 points to 7.0_2017Q4.
I expected that every package is also available in later versions.

7.1.1 is fairly new, but 7.1 has been around a while and I have (older) packages for it. I also noticed the raft of missing packages recently. Maybe it is due to 7.1.1, I don't really know, I just download packages, don't know how the system works. It may be worth looking at nyftp.netbsd.org because things are supposed to show up there first, i.e., you might save a day or two?

I reported an issue with libgssapi in another thread. The 7.0 packages are apparently compiled with libgssapi.so.10 and if you look at /usr/lib in 7.1.1 it has version libgssapi.so.11.

There is a pkgsrc-bulk mailing list and it appears that they are still working the bugs out of the 7.1 build system.

The "nils . netbsd" build reports are only for about 1600 packages.

http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-bulk/

At this point in time your options are to compile from pkgsrc or wait.

Edit/Addendum:

If you are hunkering down with inclement weather, and need an indoor project, NetBSD 8.0beta has pkg builds at the main site. I do find it interesting at a "Beta" version has more native packages than the most recent stable release.

For i386 there is not much in 8.0. Not in ftp nor in nyftp.

I am wondering why there are othen language packages for firefox but not firefox program package.

Maybe I should build it from source at the moment I use 7.1.1 with the packages from 7.0.2017Q2. Except from samba and gfvs it works fine.

I just finished putting together a 7..1.1 amd64 system from source. Unless your i386 system is fast Firefox (57.0.4) takes much longer to build than Friefox52 (esr, 52.5). 57.05 needs to build lang/clang, lang/rust and lang/gcc-49 as dependencies. One the other hand, the 57 release series is faster at rendering pages.
