Solved pkg install eclipse (package not found?)

Apparently java/eclipse is not available in the quartely repository but it is in the latest (don't ask me why! :eek:) So, you can switch to latest and use it, or build from ports.

To switch to latest you need to create a this file:

/usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf
Code:
FreeBSD: {
  url: "pkg+http://pkg.FreeBSD.org/${ABI}/latest",
  mirror_type: "srv",
  signature_type: "fingerprints",
  fingerprints: "/usr/share/keys/pkg",
  enabled: yes
}

You could also take a look at pkg.conf(5).
