For most people portsnap would be a better way of updating one's ports tree. Firstly, it's in the base system and thus doesn't require any third party software. Secondly, most newbies find it easier to use. Svein Halvor Hmm porstnap seemed to have worked ok. I installed the portupgrade suite through pkg_add. Somethings still not happy. Because when took a stab at installing: nvidia-driver nvidia-glx xorg and compat 5 as a dependency for nvidia-driver/nvidia-glx nvidia can't find something and I don't know what because the first part of the message scrolls of the screen- (remember I'm not in xorg yet) -What the newbie here has done so far to help itself- Just as a guess-reinstalled linux_base because I remembered reading on a Just Some Guys 'Blog abut the same problem thinking it couldn't hurt anything since I hadn't installed hardly much of anything- cd /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base. make deinstall make clean make install Ran that for 15 minuts-it ran into some sort of "error 1!" (repeated 5 times) Undaunted-re- did make etc. Somethng about rpm something not found (cd'd into linux_bas-fc4) ran make install clean-but it says it can't find the ftp servers- Any guesses what I'm doing wrong? --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
