There are many different ways to accomplish that feat. To update Samba plus all of its prerequisites, etc., first update your ports collection. If you need help with that task, just ask. Next, install portmanager '/usr/ports/sysutils/portmanager' and then run it as follows (as root obviously): portmanager net/samba3 -l -f That should take care of your problems as well as creating a log file in '/var/log' that you can inspect later if you so desire. You could omit the 'f' switch if you desire. It forces all of the dependencies to be rebuilt if required. You might also want to consider just using this syntax: portmanager -u -l -y -f It will update all installed ports on your system in the correct order and with the proper dependencies.
