Use the ports tree tarball included, or fetch it (either during or after installation). It is not impossible to get an old version of the ports tree with only the 9.2 base system. I don't see how this is anything more than an inconvenience. Also, 9.3 is out and the 9.2 EOL is not far away. Not sure why you would be doing a new install with 9.2. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
