I almost always build my ports using
makeor ports-mgmt/portmaster, however, I cannot seem to get
pkgto work. When I run
pkg search insert_string_herethe search never returns anything. This is the same on FreeBSD 10.0, 10.1, and even on Dragonfly BSD. My /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf is the default. I am running amd64.
pkgdoes allow me to install packages that I manually
fetch. Can anyone help? I had to use this to install multimedia/gstreamer1-plugins-bad as I could not get it to build but
pkg search gstreamerreturned nothing.
