I'm a newbie running 6.1 stable and I have what may be several simple questions: What exactly is happening when I run "make index && make readmes" after I upgrade my ports tree? Why aren't the indexes and readmes made when we run cvsup ports-supfile? Finally, why does it take so long to make what appear (to me) to be fairly small files? Thanks.
You don't need to run make index... just cd into /usr/ports and type 'make fetchindex' after every cvsup session. You don't need to run make readmes too, these are just html pages with all the ports listed on them... see here for an example: http://www.freebsd.org/ports/ -- BSD Podcasts @: http://bsdtalk.blogspot.com/ http://freebsdforall.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
