Description Johannes Lundberg 2018-12-05 12:54:32 UTC
Just like the title says.

I tried to install a package "fs-uae" which I wasn't sure about the correct package name. `pkg install` or `pkg search` could not find any such package. I tried e-uae, uae, fs-uae-launcher but none gave me what I wanted. It turns out fs-uae was the correct name and that is has been marked broken. It would be nice if pkg could tell me about this.

AFAICT from <https://www.freshports.org/emulators/fs-uae/> it's no longer marked as BROKEN. 

For me, 

root@momh167-gjp4-8570p:~ # pkg rquery %e -r FreeBSD fs-uae
root@momh167-gjp4-8570p:~ # date ; uname -v

root@momh167-gjp4-8570p:~ # 

– I guess that it's not in the repo for 13.0-CURRENT.
