This guide will help you reinstall all of your OpenBSD packages.
- The following will save a list of manually installed packages:
pkg_info -m >packages.txt
- And then comes the unnerving step of uninstalling ALL packages.
- Next, I reinstalled all my packages using pkg_add’s fuzzy adding feature:
pkg_add -z -l packages.txt
At this point it will begin reinstalling all of your packages. It worked just like the usual pkg_add -ui. At the end of the entire process, all of your packages will have been reinstalled. And make package on those problematic ports works again.
