I am always willing to learn something new. How is it more efficient at downloading the port's Makefiles? I agree that the first time you run 'portsnap' it might take twenty minutes to fetch and extract the files. However, after that it only requires a fetch and update to complete the job. It appears, to me anyway, to run at least as quick as cvsup plus I do not have to rebuild the index. If he runs cvsup I believe he has to rebuild the index, or am I mistaken? In any case, he has to use one method or the other or he will never get his system updated. -- Gerard Seibert [EMAIL PROTECTED] Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.
