Do you have the latest version of 'portmanager' installed? There was an older version that had this bug, but it was fixed. I would recommend that you update your ports and then make sure you have the latest version of 'portmanager' installed. Then run: portmanager -u -f -l -y That will create a log file "/var/log/portmanager.log" that you can inspect later to see what happened if it goes into an infinite loop again, HTH -- Gerard Seibert [EMAIL PROTECTED] A Riverside, California, health ordinance states that two persons may not kiss each other without first wiping their lips with carbolized rosewater.
