To install just this one port, run the program like this: portmanager deskutils/taskjuggler -l -y If you have 'portupgrade' installed, you might want to run 'portsclean': portsclean -C -L first to make sure that you have cleaned out any old work before starting a new installation. -- Gerard Seibert [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
