Adrian, Please note the fact that a lot of software distributors, regardless of whether you pay for the product or not, have a limited set of supported versions of their software for a reason. In this case FreeBSD did phase out their old versions of software for a reason, and that was supportability and space as Kris mentioned. So, please upgrade to the latest version of your major version fork (5.5 I believe). That is all. - -Garrett -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.5 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFFQYgg6CkrZkzMC68RAg61AJ4n0Xly1rzorhV1aBe2/lyoSGUeAACfcdou rycJyS0SfUh/1RmvOhPGyjY= =+fPm -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
