My OctoPkg sees red


Running on dedicated PC : freebsd-version -kru
13.2-RELEASE-p10
13.2-RELEASE-p10
13.2-RELEASE-p10
can I haz install or must I go to 13.3 first??

upgrade not perfect : e.g.
mpe@NomadBSD ~> qpdfview

(:3076): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:15:44.074: Kan themamodule niet vinden in modulepad: ‘murrine’,

(:3076): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:15:44.074: Kan themamodule niet vinden in modulepad: ‘murrine’,

(:3076): Gtk-WARNING **: 14:15:44.074: Kan themamodule niet vinden in modulepad: ‘murrine’,

fish: Job 1, ‘qpdfview’ terminated by signal SIGABRT (Abort)
mpe@NomadBSD ~ [SIGABRT]>
Here we go again, bleh!

P.S. I can always fall back on Brave as a fine .pdf reader (as well as browser)
This is a Linux app though…

Well I’ll be darned : reinstalling solved it

Qt depends on a UTF-8 locale, and has switched to “C.UTF-8” instead.

As a side note : " Why Do You Talk to Yourself? "
### Problem-Solving

Talking to yourself can also be a way to work through problems you might be facing. This tactic, known as self-explaining, can help people monitor their progress and improve their performance as they work through a problem.

Before I did the “quarterly mega package update” (almost 700 packages!) on a NomadBSD system, I as a routine went to our forum to see if it sparked problems… (it didn’t - great :+1: )
…and created a new boot environment (sudo bectl create big-pkg-update), so I can reverse the upgrade if needed.

@MPe You’re one behind…
