Default pkg_add doesn't seemed to work after updating to latest snapshot.

Greetings all,

After updating to latest snapshot moments ago, I started noticing that my pkg_add doesn't seem to work.

my installurl file contains:


After trying to install a package like this.

$ doas pkg_add -v putty
http://mirror.rise.ph/pub/OpenBSD/6.1/packages/amd64/: no such dir
Can't find putty

I noticed the "6.1" in the branch, but I'm using snapshot I don't know why my OpenBSD system kept appending 6.1 instead of "snapshots". Now I'm stuck I don't know how to work around this.

Any tips from the big bros, sorry for such a lame question, I'm really noob at this.

Thanks in advance.

This is a caveat of running snapshots. Because development happens in one branch, once the project is preparing for the release, the version number is bumped and the tools are put into their release configuration. Once the new version is released, it is put back to the rolling snapshots configuration for development.

Use PKG_PATH, and set the full snaapshot path of your mirror as a workaround.

And if this isn't you on misc@, more information:

Or use # pkg_add -uD snap, which has been discussed just today on both the misc@ and ports@ mailing lists.

I think this worked as a work around.

# pkg_add -D snap <package name>

Thanks much.
