Any idea why? (I am referring to the ports tree itself, i.e. the collection of skeleton directories. The set of distfiles provided on CDs 3 and 4 is necessarily incomplete, both due to limited space and because some distfiles have legal restrictions that prevent their inclusion.) > I stopped installing the ports tree from the install CD a long > time ago for that reason. Perhaps sysinstall's rather strong recommendation to install the ports ought to be toned down a bit, e.g. to suggest installing the ports from CD only if one does not have a high-speed Internet connection. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
