When I was just trying to build my KDE 3 internationalization package on FreeBSD 5.2.1, a strange -quite meaningless- message prevented me from that:

===> Refetch for 1 more times files: kde-i18n-de-3.2.2.tar.bz2 >> kde-i18n-de-3.2.2.tar.bz2 doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/KDE. >> Attempting to fetch from http://mirrors.isc.org/pub/kde/stable/3.2.2/src/kde-i18n/. fetch: kde-i18n-de-3.2.2.tar.bz2: local modification time does not match remote

and so on... for every mirror.

Trying hard to google for a solution, I didn't find much.

After all I found out that there are some possible reasons:

  • the computer's time is wrong. check it.
  • in my case: there was a corrupt part of the file already downloaded. so go to
    and remove the .tar.bz file that's causing the problem. It will be downloaded correctly now.

have fun!
