Hopefully this is right place for my question and not to redundant a question.
I have a new minimalist installation for use as a file server only (FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE) with a very small set of ports installed. Basically Samba, Cvsup,man files, ports, all the source and their dependencies. I am primarily interested in keeping the system up to date with security patches, system updates, and of course, the ports I run. I want to optimize the amount of disk space for the public shares so I don't want to arbitrarily install a lot of programs I don't need. My question is, 1.) If I CVSUP SRC-ALL, 'make buildworld', 'make installworld' etc, will that install the entire source tree to my machine and eat up disk space unnecessarily? In other words do I need to weed out all but the basic components I want before make installworld? 2.) What branches of the source tree would I be required to keep up to date for my minimal installation? I realized in testing on an older system that portupgrade will only install ports I am using but don't know if make installworld will do the same. ------- Bryan bc3910 'at' gmail 'dot' com _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
