Re: PrjectCenter (and Gorm) ask for old gnustep-base library in FreeBSD

Well, I think it is important to have a standard setup when asking for help on the maillist.
J will do   a reinstall this weekend, and then use pkg install for all my installations.

For this cenon package, I don't mind giving it a try. Is it ok if I install 10.4?
And then I do pkg install xenon?

I'm currently on 11.1, and indeed, the package is installed, but the program is not working (on my non-standard installation):

Generally, yes.  Part of the reason that it’s not recommended to build ports without using poudriere is that their configure scripts can end up polluted with installed things that are not explicit dependencies and then you can end up with a mess.  If you use poudriere, it will create a clean jail, install the dependencies, and then build, so you should end up with a more reproduceable build.  portmaster and portupgrade have a nasty habit of missing updates and leaving your system in a not-so-coherent state.  They also need you to install the dependencies before you build the ports that depend on them, which leaves you with a long window during a big update between the start and finish when you have mismatched versions.  With Poudriere, you kick off the build and then end up with a new package set at the end, which you can then install.

P.S. If you’re using 10.x and are able to see why cenon isn’t building on 10, that would be very helpful!
